Old stadium: For years and years, the last thing attended to when it came to updating the Cotton Bowl, was the press box. That’s changed. The bathrooms are a great improvement and the counter space for computers and notebooks and the like is a great improvement. But not everything was improved. If you wanted a dependable Internet connection, you needed an Ethernet cord. The stadium provided, yet not every journalist’s computer includes an Ethernet port. In a wireless world, who needs it? The Cotton Bowl may be the last major stadium in the nation without a dependable wireless connection.
Relative peace: It couldn’t have been so everywhere outside the stadium’s boundaries, but Sooner and Longhorn fans were seen enjoying the wonder that’s the Texas State Fair, almost together, not even an hour after the game concluded.
Good thing. After an 11 a.m. kickoff, there’s bound to be a lot of mingling between the Longhorn and Sooner Nations.
