FOOTBALL: Sunday Links

I usually call these Sunday morning links, but since it’s 1:40 in the afternoon, they’re just Sunday links.

    Thanks for the article on the Cotton Bowl P.A.

    I may have totally missed this – but when the move occurs next year – are they tearing down the old? Or have they made decision on what will be done with that place? Other than OK/Tex – maybe some high school events – what else would they have there?
    I know they just expanded and did some renovation – just curious??

    The long-term future is unclear. Right now Oklahoma-Texas are under contract I believe through 2015. I know Grambling seems to play there quite a bit. Not sure if it’s used for high schools.

    Had to get rid of that ole cotton boll; it got a sever attack from the boll weevils and could not afford all the expense,such health care, food stamps, and what have you along that line. I thought tho, that it would be much better after the first of the New Year. Guess not!!

    PA, just heard Raymond Cotton an all star QB from Maryland had switched his comm from Auburn to OM and is scheduled to be visiting in Jan. Can you check your sources? Also, I hear the black coaches association will file something against Auburn this week because of the Turner Gill thing? It sure looks bad what they did.

    Thanks P.A. Appreciate the info.

    There is no official word on Cotton although he is originally from MS, and I do not think Chizik convinces him any more to stay at Auburn.

    I will say we picked up 4* Scott who was once an Auburn commit

    Sounds good. I’ll ask around. I was of the opinion that the Ole Miss class would pick up late. We’ll see.

    Thanks for that article on the Cotton Bowl, PA. I grew up in New Orleans and often went to the Sugar Bowl back when it was in Tulane Stadium.

    Patrick, I made a couple of Sugar Bowls but only in the Dome. My parents drug me to the Dome’s grand opening in August of 1975, and I made a Saints game, my first, later that fall. I never saw old Tulane Stadium. Wish I had.
