Scott Rabalais nailed it on the head! I do not know who picks the contenders in these bowl games, but our Tigers deserve and have earned a better game than the Chick-fil-A Bowl (aka the Chicken Bowl). Our team worked hard, and to receive such a consolation prize is beneath them.
I have no idea what the financial aspect of this “Chicken Bowl” appearance is to LSU, but if I were the deciding factor, I’d toss them a used chicken leg.
Can you imagine the potential revenue from the University of Texas versus LSU in Jerryville’s Texas Stadium in the Cotton Bowl? The “Battle of the Sabine!”
Tigers, decline the invite, stay home and enjoy the holidays! You guys have earned it!
