CAPITAL ONE VS COTTON
11/30/2011 1:16 PM
And let the debate roll on.....for almost an hour we debated, listened and read about what would be best for the Razorbacks and their fans. Obviously, playing in the Cotton Bowl would be a lot less expensive trip but newsflash, the Capital One Bowl, who has the first choice of which non-BCS teams it want, apparently doesn't care as much as you'd think about how far fans must travel. Sure, it makes sense to you and me, Dallas is closer, they'll be more fans buying more seats so easily that's the logical choice and on the other side, possibly Hog fans won't travel in as many numbers as Georgia or South Carolina fans would, so why wouldn't the Cap One want one of the other teams? Well, there's only one explanation. The Cap One Bowl will make their choice on 2 teams they feel they will make the most money off of, and Arkansas could be that choice and just maybe it doesn't have as much to do with all those ticket sales as we might think.
Not a coincidence one logo is bigger than the other.
