I'm almost positive LSU was in a bowl every year that Cholly Mac had a winning season in the 70s except once.

Look at coaching record chart. Unlikely that the turned down a bowl that year, because of their low SEC ranking and their non-existent national ranking. There must've been some good football played that year I'll tell ya that much.

It stinks to have to wait so long for it. Then again the Sabanator has time to work his magic.

Just for the record turning down a bowl can hamstring your team for a decade or more.

Ah I gotcha I see now. You're right. I wonder what the reasoning was behind that. Do you know?

I hope it wasn't because lsu thought they were better than the bowl haha.

Wasn't trying to call you out or anything there by the way.

I wish the NC was now. I can't handle this time without good college football.

I was talking about this with the wife the other night. I was saying I was happy Bama was in the big game but it's a month away and no more college football. If I'm not hunting on Saturdays it feels like something is wrong. She was laughing her tail off at me asking me if I needed some anti depression medicine. I told her after Jan with no college football or deer hunting I might take her up on it.

If I'm not mistaken, one of the major bowls snubbed LSU for a lower ranked Notre Dame team and the LSU players said to he** with the whole thing.
