The cotton would be great for us, I think it is becoming a good possibility.

Thats such a freakin copout. You wouldnt turn down a trip to the national championship because baylor's offense is better than Clemsons. There is a thread on here to night about "taking the next step", well thats the next step! Beating a good team on a national stage.

I think he was just saying we'd be able to do the same thing to Baylor that we did to Clemson.

I would book rooms the minute after they made the announcement. Kids don't go back to school until the 6th this year so may even make a long road trip out of it

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

Doubt very seriously if we'll have a chance to say "no thanks." Bama gets one BCS bowl, Auburn or Missouri get the other, so the loser of the SEC championship game is much more likely to get the Cotton than us due to their fan bases likely traveling better. That = Cap One for us.

Cotton Bowl:

- Top ten opponent that we either haven't played or haven't played in a long time.
- Most prestigious bowl we have access to.
- Fun stuff to do that the majority of our fanbase has never experienced before.
-Good weather.
- New part of the country
- Would open up a new recruiting territory and give us more exposure in front of a national television audience.
- Playing in the best football stadium on the face of the planet that will hopefully host us in a national title game next year.

So the only "advantage" the Capital One Bowl has is money, but after the cut, it won't make much of a difference for our bottomline. Hate to break it to some of you guys, but that money won't make it to your pockets. Also, with the SEC network starting up, we'll start making even more money. If revenue is your concern, well it's a good thing we'll get exposure to people who had probably never seen us before.
