An Open Letter to Texas Fans

An Open Letter to the Football Fans of the University of Texas from Cotton Bowl Athletic Association President Rick Baker.

An Open Letter to the Football Fans of the University of Texas:

The SBC Cotton Bowl and the City of Dallas would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the fans of the University of Texas who followed the Longhorns to Dallas on New Year’s Day.

For our 67th Classic, we were thrilled to host a team with a reputation for excellence like Texas. We were proud to host the Longhorns for the third time in five years. The excitement and enthusiasm that surrounded the Texas program made this year particularly special.

Longhorn fans have plenty to be proud of in their players, President Larry Faulkner, Athletic Director DeLoss Dodds and Coach Mack Brown. They are a terrific group who represented your University in a first-class manner. We enjoyed hosting them here in Big D.

It was a great week. Congratulations on a successful season. Thanks again for helping make this year’s SBC Cotton Bowl Classic one of the best ever.
