I believe I'll take that bet.

Just a reminder to my LA Tech brethren, UAB was a 12.5 point favorite in our last game.

I was surprised to see that line, too. But it is time for Bloomgren’s Owls to end the 6-game Louisiana Tech win streak in this C-USA West rivalry.

This should be a good game and we may have found a QB and some better OL play after UAB

Well who has it now? We already had like 38 go out to cancel the Baylor game. We’ve just had handfuls every now and then since.

Is it substantial? Idk. This sucks.

Does a cancellation end a streak?

Tech announcement

One position group too thin - probably the O-line.

Or....maybe not?

It's just going to be week by week for the rest of the year.

Then basketball season would surely be a nonstarter.

The conference championship is meaningless with so.many cancellations. It should be cancelled too and let the teams try to make up more games during that week.

So...cancel the CCG so we can play more games not to win the CCG?

RE: ****W11-POSTPONED: Rice @ LA Tech, 2:30CT, Sat., ESPN3****
This looks like one of those "strategic cancellations" I've been speaking & posting about.

Why would LA Tech cancel a home game (Rice), a game against ULM in Shreveport (maybe), and then play two CUSA road games at FIU and UNT.......UNLESS of course, UAB loses another CUSA game this season (to UTEP?), which would put LA Tech in the drivers seat for the CUSA Western division title and a spot in the CUSA championship game?

Skip knows all this of course. Skip may have decided to not play another CUSA game until he sees how UAB fares against UTEP (on 11/20) & S Miss (on 11/27). Skip knows that LA Tech has already played 5 CUSA conference games (3-2 record) and that UAB (2-1) has only played 3. (The UAB vs N TX game is also postponed this weekend) So, why should LA Tech take all the risk unnecessarily? There are no brownie points being given this year for LA Tech to play 8 CUSA games while UAB plays only 6, or 7 (7 only if the UNT game can get rescheduled, which it currently is not). Skip knows all this, and is in the position to cancel the Rice game with no penalty, avoid any chance of another conference loss, and take a "wait and see" attitude toward the rest of the season. He knows he has already played more conference games than UAB will likely play this entire season, so why risk it?

Yep. This is a strategic cancellation, but they are just not going to tell you that. I hope some of you are keeping up at home.

Yeah that. Definitely not a pandemic inevitably interrupting “normal” life...

Gawd, I hope not! On the whole "let's play the virus card" to avoid a possible loss tactic. I don't believe it, and refuse to believe that Tech is doing that. I actually don't want to believe anyone is doing that. Supposed to be competitors! If it has come to this now, today, then I am done with all these snowflakes.

But, I don't believe it. No way!


...nice conspiracy theory though.

Rice may be the surprise team in C-USA. Would someone let them show it on the field?
