If you can't afford the trip like me, then stay your ass home and watch it on tv. FOX airs it and quite frankly, I'd rather watch Gus Johnson have a footballgasm every minute than watch another one of our games on ESPN2 competing for attention with 4 other bowl games at the same time because The Mothership wants to keep up the allusion that the Rose Bowl is still a big deal in this day and age.

In short, screw Orlando, give me Dallas.
Let's be friends.

Capital One is the highest-paying non-BCS bowl (around $4.5 million) and is located in the vacation capital of the world. Cotton would be awesome, but let's not act like going to Cap One is a slap in the face.

I still like the potential of a matchup with Duke in Atlanta. It's a good story with Spurrier and is one of the few games with no other TV conflicts.

All of that bowl money is put into a pool by the SEC and then redistributed anyways. Orlando is called the vacation capital of the world because of Disney. I have no problem with Disney, but let's be honest, who the hell wants to mix in the House of Mouse at the end of the year with a prime college football matchup? Besides, if we go to the Cotton Bowl, we'll get to play a Big 12 team worth a shit. If we go to the Big Ten, we'll play some Big Ten POS and have to deal with their shenanigans like we did with Nebraska and then Michigan.

**** the Big Ten and their pasty ass annoying fans.

We just roughed up 1 Cupcake Conference team, I have no interest in roughing up another unless we play FSU and that isn't going to happen. Don't want to play Big Ten either. Too boring.

Even redistributed, we'll at least get a little more from Cap One than we would from Cotton. Besides, if you're actually going to the bowl (which I am) the tickets to Cotton are more expensive. Economics, my friends.

I agree with all of this but 1.

The Rose Bowl is still a big deal in this age.

We'd get better exposure from the Cotton Bowl. We'd be on a National network in primetime vs. a noon- 1 pm kickoff with 3-4 other games at the same time on ESPN. If price is a problem for you like it is for me, then I have a simple suggestion: Stay home. The Cotton Bowl is what is better for the program. Better matchup, more prestige, and more exposure. Beating the piss out of Wisconsin or Iowa does nothing for our program this year or next. Beating the piss out of Baylor/Texas/Oklahoma does.

Yeah it's still a big deal, but not as big of a deal as ESPN would lead you to believe. Its ratings get touted all the time. Well no shit it has good ratings. You put it on ABC in the middle of the day with no other games on. Meanwhile, earlier on New Year's Day, you have anywhere from 4-5 games being played at once, usually with far more interesting matchups.

Wow, Carolina fans telling other Carolina fans to stay home for a bowl. Gotta recuse myself on that one.

I used to have the same opinion as you until I moved out of the south, as well as went to the game.
People in the big northeastern markets generally don't give a shit about college football, unless it's the Rose Bowl.

Wow I am seeing different projections all over the place. I've seen Cotton, CapOne, ChikFilA, and Outback. Most recent was ChickFilA against Miami (that'd be a BEAT DOWN and it would continue our recent streak of beating powerhouses in bowl games)

Depends on what you mean by northeast. Folks in NYC, Boston, and Philly don't care about college football much at all. Now in the more midwest area of say Ohio, middle to western Pennslyvania, Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana, then yeah they do care.

The Rose Bowl is banking on 2 cities carrying its water: LA and Chicago. Chicago is to the Big Ten what Atlanta is to the SEC. Ditto for LA and the Pac 12.

Default Re: Cap one, cotton, or outback?

If auburn wins the sec we are going to the capital 1 bowl. For sure. the cap 1 has already talked with the sec and unlike last year they will not require them to take the secc loser(imagine that, they only do that for uga but not for the new guys) this is straight from family members on the bowl committee. They couldn't say hey we are taking Carolina if mizzzou loses but did say to root for auburn and for me to book my hotels, flights to orlando for new years. If auburn loses then it is really up to the cotton/outback to make a deal on who they want more. Don't shoot the messenger just what i hear.
-this is nothing new and people have said this all week but i've been waiting to hear from my family and something definite before saying so. This is the #1 sec bowl outside the bcs and we are the best sec team not in the bcs this year. It has a high payout but not the best tv slot.
