FOOTBALL: Cotton Bowl from print edition

Here’s our link. It was interesting to note that Texas Tech coach Mike Leach was not on the conference call. That was because he was in flight to New York for awards presentations, not because he hasn’t signed the 5-year extension offered to him by the school, Tech AD Gerald Myers said.

Bowl officials were excited about the matchup, something that happens with any matchup.

This one is intriguing on several fronts. The Rebels allowed only 20 points in four November games and pitched two shutouts. They’ll have to have a monster game from the defensive line to help coverage in the secondary, which has been a problem most of the year. It’s gotten better during this late defensive surge, largely because of the play of free safety Kendrick Lewis, but the Ole Miss corners in man coverage is still not a good matchup.

    YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! We’re going to Dallas!!!!! COTTON BOWLIN. I know this will be a tough match up…but I think Texas Tech has shown in the last part of the season that they are beatable.

    PA, In the State game Jason Cook left early with an injury. Did he return? what is his status. I would hate to see him not ba able to play in a bowl game he is a outstanding young man.

    Mantachie, Jason has a sprained MCL (knee ligament). He has not practiced in the three workouts since practice has resumed but should be ready for the game.

    Hope Jason Cook’s injury does not keep him from playing in the Cotton Bowl. He’s listed as a senior and being a senior this opportunity may never come his way again. Get well Jason – hope to see you on the playing field in Dallas New Years.
