The question is, will the Cap1 be willing to skip us so we go to the Cotton.

I expect Ray is in talks with both bowls at the moment, if the Cotton wants us bad enough, we'll go there. We all know what the HBC wants.

Cotton is a plus due to the recruiting advantage it can give us.

But Capital One makes more sense.

Personally I'm sick of bowl games in Fla.

I've been wanting us to open a pipeline to Texas for years. I'm sure Whammy and Jr have ties to some of those Texas HS's.

Either way, I'm happy if it's the Cap1 or Cotton, just wish I could make the trip, but I traveled too much this year to go back to the states so soon. And yeah, personally I'd rather go to Florida than Dallas or any where in Texas.

Spurrier has said we will not recruit Texas.

I agree that stadium is the worst. No parking and a bad neighborhood, although Orlando is a fun place and hotels are cheap. The Outback Bowl has a nice stadium with easy and abundant parking. Plus they really know how to move traffic so it's quick in and out. We had to park in a garage for the Capital one and take a bus/shuttle and it was a nightmare getting back to our car after the game. The stadium feels like a high school stadium. Why is this a better bowl? They need to build a new stadium in a better part of town or I won't go back.I haven't been to the Cotton and I will definitely go if we could somehow manage to go there.

I didn't hear him say that, but I assume it's because he feels like it's a waste of time because of all the Texas school that dominate there. But never say never.

Main reason Cotton Bowl trumps Capital One Bowl: Cotton regains prestige w/ 4-team playoff system as 1 of the 6 rotating semifinal sites

Q. South Carolina has not traditionally recruited Texas heavily in the past. Will you do so in the future?

Spurrier: No, we will not recruit Texas, no. We have plenty of ballplayers in South Carolina and our border states. We sort of call Florida a border state, but it's not. Florida, Georgia, North Carolina are mainly our targets right there, and our state. We're not going to go into Texas and compete against Oklahoma, Texas, all them guys. If there's a connection or something, somebody calls up, says that this guy wants to play at South Carolina, certainly we may do it then. I'll tell you what has been sort of interesting. Today we had a one-day football camp. I was there. We had 400 kids show up for a little one-day football camp, from all over the place. Kids from Florida, New Jersey, all kind of places. So it was sort of neat. I told our guys, Dang, we had about 400 guys come from all over to South Carolina. Sort of unusual. So we're getting a little bit of a name out there. We're still certainly not Alabama, LSU, some of those guys, but we're making a little bit of noise. We haven't made as much as we'd like to, but we've done some good things. Finishing in the top 10 for the first time in school history was neat last year also

OK, thanks. At least they will pursue someone from there if they show interest. A lot of good QB's come out of Texas.

If HBC wants the cotton, I want the cotton. Motivated HBC equals win.
