Not exactly....the participating team gets approximately 10-15% off the top....the rest goes into the SEC pool.

I want the Cotton Bowl. To hell with going to a florida NYD bowl, if it doesn't begin with "Orange." I am NOT looking for an invite from The Capitol One, OR the Outback... Its like we are stuck going to either one of those, and I think we deserve a HELL of a lot better exposure than that... Think of the talent that will see us in Texas! Can you imagine if we open up those flood gates with a win!? I say, HELL YES, I WANT BAYLOR!!! And above all... WIN ANYWAY!!!! GO COCKS!!!

Just look at our endowment compared to other SEC schools.....we have a smaller alumni base, a smaller state.....we don't spend nearly as much as other SEC schools recruiting. I would rank us around 10th in the SEC financially speaking.

A&M is getting ready to spend 100 million on stadium expansion and improvements.....we don't come anywhere close to that. Having said that, we have done much better in the last 5-10 years, but we are behind most other SEC schools.

Vandy probably one of the wealthiest, it is a private school.

But they probably don't donate as much to the football team.

"No thanks?!?!?" Are you out of your mind??!! I am tired of mid-tier Bowl opponents! I would sign up for Florida State tomorrow if I had my vote!!!

As minor chance as it may be I hate the thought that Cotton Bowl execs are perusing the fan websites to gauge interest in the bowl attendance and think Gamecock fans don't want the Cotton!! It's my number one choice of what we have as options!!

Please COTTON please!!!!

The cotton bowl folks said how impressed they were with the fan base's interest in the cotton bowl on social media. So, there is a chance they have/will see this.

Several things here.

What's the harm in starting a pipeline? The top programs in the nation pull the best recruits from all over the nation. I don't care if a recruit comes from Irmo or Juneau. I just want the best players who will help us win. Also, it's not just about the exposure in that market (Dallas), but the television exposure. We'll get a primetime slot on a national network. The Cotton Bowl is the only postseason game that FOX has so you know they will promote the heck out of it.

Do you fools really believe that any bowl executive from Dallas or Orlando is reading this board? More importantly, do you believe that any bowl executive is not only reading this board, but cares what is said here and will base their decision off of what is said here? Seriously people. In the grand scheme of the internet, Cockytalk is a footnote on the hair on a mole on the ass of a tiny asian man lost in the vastness of space.

They are talking about comments on Twitter and Facebook. No one correlates a fan message board with social media folks. No one has, no one will.

No, hence the words "as minor chance as it may be..." which immediately followed that statement.

Are you going to Dallas. You and your wife can go for 3 nights for around 2,500 including airfare. And if you wear all you Gamecock stuff, you'll sit in back of restaurants next to the kitchen and men's room.

Absolutely they would read this board! All you need is for one intern to google and it would come up.

If you don't think they research the heck out of the fan base you are mistaken.

If anything the lack of UF fans in New Orleans probably helped that.

Oh come on, are they staying at the Ritz? I wear my Gamecock gear all the time and either go unnoticed or get positive comments.

Seriously doubt the bowl execs base their decisions on anonymous message board posters. I would hope so anyway, pretty lousy way to run a business.

South Carolina fans that dont want the Cotton bowl are frickin ridiculous. The Cotton Bowl might as well be a BCS game as far as recognition. The game is played in what is probably the greatest stadium in sports, in a HUGE market, and this year it could overshadow what is going to be a horrible orange bowl.
