Ready For Another C-USA Bowl Game?

DALLAS (AP) -- The replacement for the Cotton Bowl game has been lined up.

Dallas city leaders say the Dallas Football Classic is planned for New Year's Day 2011. The plan calls for using teams from the Big 12, Big Ten and perhaps Conference USA.

The first game will likely pit the seventh-ranked team from the Big 12 against the sixth-ranked team from the Big Ten, should those teams be excluded from Bowl Championship Season consideration.

The plan needs NCAA approval. It would run through the 2013 season.

The Cotton Bowl game is moving to the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington this season. That prompted officials to come up with a replacement game for the 77-year-old Fair Park venue.

    This is just idiotic; there are too many Bowl games. Even worse, is that a mediocre 6-6 team is rewarded for a .500 season by playing in one of these no ratings snoozer games.
