“We’re really happy to be here. The Cotton Bowl people have been wonderful. It’s been great hospitality for everyone. The function we have gone to this point (and) the organization at the hotel have been outstanding for our players. I think this is a great venue to be involved in for our team.

TEXAS HEAD COACH MACK BROWN

Did all of the student-athletes arrive on time?

“Yes they did, Chris Simms sat on the runway in New York for two and half hours, which we were really concerned about him. We were concerned about some of the west-Texas kids but I think the snow was up more near Amarillo and it didn’t get down to Lubbock as much so all of our guys were able to get in. A couple of guys were a little bit late but everyone made our 10 o’clock meeting last night.
