GROUP SEEKS DOME FOR THE COTTON BOWL
An citizens group in Dallas, headed by attorney Darrel
Jordan, is discussing a plan that could dome the Cotton Bowl,
increase seating capacity to 90,000, and add as many as 40 luxury
suites. Cost of the project is said to be "in the millions" and
Jordan said promised full private financing (Steve Richardson,
DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 8/24). The group hopes a dome "can lure"
the football championship game for the Big 12 Conference, which
begins play in '96, and that the Cotton Bowl game "can become
part of the bowl alliance and play host to a potential national
title game" (Wendell Barnhouse, FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 8/24).
