I personally don't view the Cotton as a lesser bowl. In fact, I think EVERYTHING about the Cotton is bigger and better than where we're going.

That's your opinion and you have made it known. I promise I'm dissapointed too because we deserve a BCS game.

You have 2 choices :

You can be butthurt for the next month with you lip poked out and troll every thread about the game. Then boycott the bowl on the first.


Or you can get over it and behind your team.

Or 3. Rewatch the Capital One bowl against Nebraska from two years ago because this is virtually the same game.

The cut is not exactly cut and dry..... It is a cut after your bowl expenses which means a lot of schools spend more money depending on the pay out

I think the Capital One Bowl is the best possible outcome considering how this season went. It's definitely the best bowl game that isn't a BCS game. Two years ago we were pretty psyched about this bowl.

Wisconsin is a good opponent, and I think it will be a good game. If we win, we will open the 2014 season in the top 10 and be in the playoff discussion.

Right on, Spartan. A great match-up in a great vacation spot. It's really a fan's best scenario outside of the BCS like you say. Also, I'm with the crowd of folks who believe we still deserved a BCS spot, but remember - we were kept out by the BCS' ludicrous set-up, and Clemson was allowed in by said ridiculous set-up. The playoff system will be great, especially once it expands to 8 teams, which I imagine will be soon after 2014. And remember, there will still be bowls for teams who don't make the playoffs. Food for thought.

Not true. Each school gets a percentage of the bowl payout, 40-50%, then the remaining is put in the pot to be divided out.

So, a higher bowl means a larger payout for us before the distribution.

I think the inclusion of Jerry World has made the AT&T Cotton Bowl classic "bigger". When it was at the fairgrounds, it was just another good bowl game

Again, this is wrong.


After expenses, the participating bowl keeps a cut, and then the rest is sent to the SEC to be divided up among the 14 schools. The Cap 1 bowl cut given to the participating school is the highest of any of the 4 tiers of non BCS bowls that the SEC has set

Before sending the money into the SEC to be cut up 15 ways, the Cap 1 participant keeps 1.325MM, and for the Cotton it would be 1.125MM plus expenses. That's a 200K difference.

To have a chance at the National title game, yes that's true. But I do believe that same committee will pick the teams for the other top bowls(like the BCS bowls) and there won't be a restriction on the number of teams from a conference.
