Cotton Bowl 2011

Cotton Bowl 2011 - The Texas A&M Aggies were offered -- and accepted -- an invite to the 2011 Cotton Bowl at Cowboys Stadium, according to reports. This is good news for the Aggies because they will travel well to the game. According to the report, Texas A&M is expected to make an official announcement soon.

This means that, no, the Missouri Tigers did not get an invite to the 2011 Cotton Bowl. You can't blame any but the system. It rewards teams like Texas A&M that will travel very well to the Cotton Bowl.

But there's no doubt Missouri can make a strong argument they deserve it. Both teams finished 6-2 in the conference, Missouri finished one game better than Texas A&M on the year at 10-2 (vs. 9-3) and most of all the Tigers beat the Aggies convincingly in a head-to-head matchup. That said, Texas A&M is hot right now coming off six consecutive victories. It's not like they're not worthy.

Again, it's not worth getting too upset over. Everyone knows hardly anyone likes the system. It's just the way it is. Missouri's best chance was probably playing against their border-rival Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl but that's not happening.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
