Louisiana Tech and Turning down a Bowl Game

I spoke with Marketplace about Louisiana Tech's curious decision to decline a bowl game. It wasn't over principle, nor was it a commentary about how college athletes should be treated. Instead, it seemed to be about $$$$ -- namely, trying to get the Independence Bowl (which had invited it) to give Louisiana Tech more time to land a more prominent, lucrative bowl bowl. The move backfired.
