Camping World Bowl director throws shade at Texas

New, 28 comments

Is it low-key shade or a brutal own? Probably the latter. In any case... sigh.

The man surely meant it in the least derogatory way possible.

On Wednesday, Kirk Bohls of the Austin-American Statesman asked the senior director of the Camping World Bowl in Orlando about the possibility of the Texas Longhorns earning an invite to the No. 2 bowl in the Big 12 selection process.

What happened next was... something.

Those were the expectations for Texas and its fans entering the season, certainly. Now, with the Horns sitting at No. 6 in the conference standings, landing in the Camping World Bowl is close to a best-case scenario that might require Baylor and Oklahoma securing berths in the College Football Playoffs and/or the New Year’s Six bowls.

After those selections, the Alamo Bowl and then Camping World Bowl make their respective selections, meaning that Texas could fall all the way to the Liberty Bowl, the No. 4 selection.

So the Camping World senior director wasn’t trying to throw shade at Texas, it just happened that way.

Consider it a sign of the times.
