    Yes, because the Cotton is an access bowl and not a contract bowl.

    That's what throws one of the wrenches in with the Rose Bowl, as example. If you have the PAC and Big10 Champs contracted to the Rose, and in the top four in the playoff...is one called the Rose Bowl and one called the Rose Bowl?

    Sugar vs Champions? It can be two games, and it can be one game. The Champions bowl is supposed to be contingent on the SEC and Big12 not being in the playoff if I understand this correctly. At least, that's how it was originally represented. However, when the Champions bowl was formed and announced it was before any contract bowls had been selected.

    Hancock talked at the WFAA awards about an hour or so ago, there will probably be some stories on what he said shortly.

    What I gathered via twitter.

    Both Semifinals on the same day - either New Years Eve or New Years Day, will be 5pm and 8pm tv slots.
    Envisions week off between semi's and finals.
    Limit crowd disadvantage for 1st and 2nd seeds
    Championship game Monday night and will not have a title sponsor
    Championship sites will eventually open up to cold weather locations, initially limited to 6 BCS level bowls.

    Delaney has good timing, he was calling Bill's cell phone while he was talking (...would have been funny if he had a stupid ringtone for him)

    "Cold weather locations" is a misnomer if there ever been. He should have just said, "we'll eventually open it up to locations where it's cold outside."

    Now, that said, I have to hand it to the NFL they finally chose a location where the game is going to be played in outdoor conditions in the cold. However, after 2014, do they ever do it again?

    If I'm not mistaken, the NFL has played the Super Bowl up north five times and all five have been in domed stadiums.

    Didn't expect to see this today, keep in mind it says "sources say"...

    http://espn.go.com/college-football/bowls12/story/_/id/8821288/att-cotton-bowl-host-first-playoff-title-game-sources-said







    MIAMI -- The Rose and Sugar bowls will host college football's first national semifinals on Jan. 1, 2015 with the AT&T Cotton Bowl a "prohibitive favorite" to host the national title game on Jan. 12, 2015, sources said Monday.

    Under the 12-year deal, which begins after the 2014 season, the Rose Bowl Game presented by Vizio and Allstate Sugar Bowl will be played on Jan. 1 every season, whether they are hosting the national semifinals or not.


    During the 12-year contract, the Rose and Sugar will host the semifinals four times. In the years they aren't hosting, the national semifinals would be moved from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, sources said.


    The only exceptions would be on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017 and Jan. 1, 2023, when the Rose and Sugar would move to Dec. 31, 2016 and Dec. 31, 2022, respectively. If the Rose and Sugar don't host the semifinals in those two seasons, the national semifinals would be played on Dec. 30, 2016 and Dec. 30, 2022. Six bowls, also to include the Orange, will rotate as hosts for the national semifinals. The other three have not been officially determined. Sources told ESPN they would be the Cotton, Tostitos Fiesta and Chick-fil-A bowls.


    In November, ESPN reported those six bowls only would be considered for the initial national playoff game on Jan. 12, 2015 to expedite the selection process with the game about two years away. The remaining national title game sites will be bid out to any city interested in hosting the game, similar to how the Super Bowl is chosen, BCS executive director Bill Hancock has said.


    Last month, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany told ESPN that the Rose and Sugar bowls would host the national semifinals in the same year as part of the six-bowl semifinal rotation. CBSSports.com initially reported the Rose and Sugar likely would be held annually on Jan. 1 with 4:30 p.m. (Rose) and 8 p.m. (Sugar) kickoffs during the upcoming new playoff format.


    The BCS commissioners met Monday and will meet again Tuesday in Miami as they continue to iron out details for the new playoff. Among the major topics of discussion: determining who and how the selection committee will be composed and finalizing the location of the semifinal rotations.


    In the upcoming college football playoff, the top four teams -- as determined by the selection committee -- will meet in the semifinals. After those four teams are selected, the league champion or top available team from the Pac-12 and Big Ten will play in the Rose Bowl, SEC and Big 12 teams in the Sugar Bowl and ACC in the Orange Bowl.


    The ACC's Orange Bowl opponent will be the highest-ranked team of either Notre Dame, an SEC team not in the national semifinals or the Sugar Bowl or a Big Ten team not in the semifinals or the Rose Bowl. However, in the years the Rose and Sugar bowls host the national semifinals, the BCS commissioners have agreed that the Big Ten or SEC champion will not be placed in the Orange Bowl, sources said.
    Instead it will be placed in one of the three other access bowls, which will be part of the national semifinal rotation.


    Also, the highest-rated champion from the Group of Five conferences (Big East, Conference USA, Mid-American, Mountain West and Sun Belt) will earn a berth in either in one of the six major bowls; except they will never be eligible for the Sugar or Rose bowls.


    When the Rose, Sugar or ACC is hosting a national semifinal the champion from each league or next best available team if they are in the playoff would still receive a bid in one of the six major bowls. After all of those teams are placed, the remaining at-large selections to fill out the six major bowls will be based on the highest ranked teams, as determined by the selection committee, not already selected.

    Not at all. In fact, it should be there - speaking of weather, Dallas does have a knack for getting yearly ice storms - but these typically occur in February (last year was the first year we haven't had one since I've lived in Dallas - 2002).

    Don't remember who it was - Terry probably - mentioned that the playoff committee's office is in Dallas, so I'm sure that had nothing to do with it. DFW and Love Field, huge metroplex, plenty of hotels. Perfect spot and you know Jerry's been chomping at the bit.
