    I mean, I don’t think Bowling Green is supposed to wow anybody. But Ole Miss will be the first non-Georgia SEC road game Tech has played since 2009 (Miss St. & Vandy).

    A necessary evil as long as everyone else does it.

    I’m delighted to see Ole Miss on the schedule... that’s a great venue. Bowling Green? Not so much.

    Sorry, I don’t get fired up knowing that we are playing a team we should wax.
    Could care less if everyone else is doing it and we can possibly go 6-6 instead of 5-7.
    Rather play an FBS team like Ga. St. or Ga. Southern every year.

    Would you care about getting left out of playoff at 11-2 when we could have been 12-1? Missing a NY6 game at 9-3 when we could have been 10-2?

    We already play both one of the harder OOC schedules and one of the harder cross-division schedules in the country most years. Not much incentive to make it even harder on ourselves.

    I don’t think great playoff teams like Clemson, Alabama, Ohio St., et al, are worried about if they can beat an in-State school like State or Southern, rather than a G.Webb or Citadel or Furman. If you’re good, you will beat a team you should beat.
    We are in no danger of playing the hardest schedule in the country. Now, when we still had all of those SEC teams when we were an independent.....

    None?



    And take a peek at where the three teams you mentioned are on that list.

    There will be a game at MBS in 2023, so there is still a chance for another P5 opponent to be added.

    I personally think the TBD opponent should be G5 but assume it will be FCS.

    Couldn’t find any attendance figures on the Ga. Southern game?
    I was at the game, and seem to recall we didn’t come close to a sellout, particularly empties on the North End Zone. Although it seemed we did much better than the time Middle Tenn. St. came down here(I believe we had low 30’s?)?

    Nope. That will be an ACC opponent.
