“Champions” Bowl Site To Be Announced Next Week

The Big XII and the SEC have apparently decided on a host city for their new “Champions” Bowl which starts up in 2014.  But you’re going to have to wait until an announcement next week to find out which city/bowl won the game.

SEC commissioner Mike Slive told ESPN.com’s Andy Katz that — as we all already knew — the selection of the host city has become “a two-horse race” between Arlington, Texas and New Orleans.  It’s Jerry Jones’ monster stadium versus the French Quarter.  It’s the Cotton Bowl or the Sugar Bowl.

Based on its tourism industry and it’s geographic location about halfway between the two leagues, MrSEC.com has stated on multiple occasions that we would like to see the game land in New Orleans rather than Arlington.  Nothing against the Metroplex, but where would you rather spend a few days in January?

The host bowl/city will be selected by two parties the Big 12 and the SEC.  Have you ever tried to get to politicla powers to agree on something.  I'm sure the SEC would prefer the game in NO and I'm sure the Big 12 would prefer it in Arlington.

 

Common sense would seem to say a compromise would be required, and the only compromise that gives equally to both parties is for the Cotton and Sugar to rotate this game between them every other year and then host semi finals when not hosting Big 12 vs SEC.

 

There have been publicly disclosed news reports that state the Sugar Bowl and the Cotton Bowl have been in talks to do exactly that for over a year before the SEC and Big 12 announced the game would be played.
