re: LA Tech AD Speaks


quote:

To attempt to put this fallacy to rest, look at the BCS numbers from week 13:

16. UCLA
17. Kent State
18. Texas
19. Michigan
20. Boise State
21. Northern Illinois

#16 UCLA to play #8 Stanford.... The only scenario that would have kept Kent State at #17 was the the upset, which we know as fact did not happen Friday night. Going into Saturday, it would have been assured Kent State would move up one spot.

Who would pass them up?

#18 Texas played #6 Kansas State... even if Texas won it would have screwed our chances anyway, taking KSU out of the BCS mix

#19 Michigan was idle, and Kent State had a reasonably healthy 0.04 on them in the standings... (you could make the case that there might have been 50-50 odds that they could get close to parity with Kent, but those odds are hardly worth hanging your hat on)
To humor you-- Michigan's final BCS was 0.2537, Kent's week 13 (before the NIU game) was 0.2512.

#20 Boise beat Nevada, but aren't getting ANY computer points whatsoever, so it was impossible

Who else were you expecting to jump them? Louisville? Northwestern?

Kent State was getting some pretty good computer numbers going into the championship game, ranked #15 in 3 of 6.

Sorry, but I don't buy it. I'm most disappointed that we're at an engineering school and all these insiders completely whiffed at a pretty simple statistics problem!

FOUR things. You missed: Nebraska to not get 70 points put on them by a 7-5 team

I never thought I'd see an AD more full of shite than Bill Byrne when he tried to spin a really bad decision...but the La. Tech AD is FAR worse.

Dooley would have never let that happen as AD at LA Tech. Oh wait he wouldn't ever have to make that decision because he can't make a bowl game

are you trying to be willfully ignorant?

multiple times people have posted why it was a longshot for everything the fall into place the way BVDV expected.

How can you still act like this was a shock? All you had to to was watch CFB Live on ESPNU for 20 minutes last week and it was clear there was a excellent chance the MAC winner would be in the BCS.

I can't believe he lasted through the day. They have to be looking at canning his arse up there, don't they?

No. The old delusional big money local boosters didn't want to play ULM because Monroe is second class, so as far as they're concerned: Mission Accomplished. Even though Tech is the laughingstock of the entire country right now, at least they didn't have to go to an unworthy bowl against an unworthy opponent.

The AD and Tech wanted no part of the Indy if ULM or Ohio was there opponent, more fan likely no part at all.. Good for Tech. They are advancing their program.

Hurd has publicly supported the AD in his claim the Liberty guaranteed Tech a spot.

I couldn't care any less about multiple teams losing were in front of NIU. When a man tells you something. It's his responsibility to be honest, not yours.

U believe turning down bowl opportunities and staying home, is advancing your program? That is laughable.

Yes. I couldn't care less about making money for the IBowl. I have a new life starting in CUSA. Beating a Sunbelt or MAC team means nothing to me, if I am Tech.

Call me arrogant. At the end of the day, I'm moving up and they are stuck in the MAC and Sunbelt. Best of luck to them in their future.

So you're fine that 31 seniors got screwed over because of your AD's incompetence? That you lose out on all that practice time that your younger players could use so Tech doesn't look bad during their first season in CUSA?

Tech fans really are some arrogant asses. I hope Dykes leaves and they become the laughing stock of CUSA. Oh wait, I think they might have accomplished that last one already.

Better to be laughed at in CUSA than to be in the Sunbelt or MAC.

BTW, I'm not a Tech fan.

MAC 2014 >>> CUSA 2014

And the TV networks will agree on that.

Whatever you say Captain Clueless. You may want to check expirations of current contracts before stating this.
