I noticed from this board and hornfans.com that tiger fans feel slighted from the the longhorns' reaction to playing LSU in the Cotton Bowl. I won't address whether LSU is worthy or whether your indignation is justified. I will try give my opinion as to why I was extremely disappointed about LSU's selection for the Cotton Bow. The fact is UT is a Top 10 Team. LSU, on the other hand, is either unranked (AP) or 25th (USA Today). For UT to move up in the rankings we need to play another Top 10 team (or at least some team ranked near the Top 10, which let's face it you guys aren't). That's why most of us wanted Notre Dame....we need to beat someone ranked significantly higher than you guys. Beating LSU doesn't help us one bit Finally, most of the Big 12 fans (not just UT fans) are unhappy with the Cotton Bowl contract. It seems to us the Big 12 usually sends a highly ranked team to the Cotton Bowl. Who does the SEC send? Usually some lowly ranked team. So call us arrogant if you want. It might even be true, because WE'RE TEXAS! after all. And good luck, because you're going to need it!
