    I had completely forgotten about Vande Velde being the AD down there now. Great job, Bruce. I'm sure your team's fans are happy with you tonight.

    That is today's funniest story. Apparently, Bruce still doesn't understand business.

    Re: LA Tech turns down a bowl after a 9-3 record.

    In other news, it sounds like Karl Malone wants Bruce VDV's job.

    At least one positive come out of this deal tonight. We get to screw Bruce and La Tech out of a bowl game.

    See, Bruce, the bowl gets filled whether you accept the bid or not. They know that. You don't.

    You needed them. They didn't need you. Enjoy the bowl season on TV.

    I'm glad we got rid of that guy. He isn't even a fraction of an athletic director as JP.

    Re: LA Tech turns down a bowl after a 9-3 record.

    And we might have cost him his job. Independence offered LA Tech last week, he waited because he thought he could get Liberty Bowl, Liberty chose us and Independence rescinded their offer. Now one of the best non-AQ schools, who went 2-1 against BCS schools and their loss was by 2 points, won't be going bowling. The Mailman has the right to be angry. Dumb move.
