COTTON BOWL FACES CHANGES AFTER ARTHUR ANDERSEN STUDY
Published October 3, 1995
The Cotton Bowl Athletic Association yesterday announced the results of a study by Arthur Andersen LLP on the Tier 1 bowl selection process, the Cotton Bowl Classic, and the future of post-season college football. The study and resulting changes, were approved by the CBAA Board of Directors in an effort to keep the 60-year-old bowl game "at the top level of college football." Among the changes: reducing the board by 1/3 to 50 members; designating the top volunteer position as Chair & CEO, and naming the Exec Dir as President of the CBAA. The new plan also calls for less reliance on university affiliation for the selection of board members. The study said the game should be played at the best stadium in the Dallas area, ideally a domed stadium or a Super Bowl-qualifying stadium. Cotton Bowl President John Crawford added the work is ongoing to find new sponsorship for the Cotton Bowl (CBAA). NO BIG 12 TITLE GAME? Big 12 Commissioner Steve Hatchell said there is a "possibility" the conference won't have a football championship game in its first year of existence in '96 (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 10/3).
