Cotton Bowl Has Me Cross-Eyed

Someone want to tell me why the Cotton Bowl isn’t a part of the BCS?  Does the Orange Bowl have a better tradition? No. Is Glendale a better destination than Dallas?  Didn’t think so? So what gives? Just one more thing I don’t understand about the current bowl system.

By the way, when you watch a game from Cowboy Stadium how can you not be distracted by that ENORMOUS television screen? It looks like an alien spacecraft hovering above the 50 yard line just waiting to attack its prey. If I were a player, I would be petrified that that thing was going to fall from the sky and crush every single one of us on the field. Probably one more reason why I never became a professional athlete.
