SUGAR BOWL: WHY GEORGIA WON
Thanks for telling us why Georgia Tech won (SI, Jan. 9) rather than, like many newspapers in this area, why Pittsburgh lost the Sugar Bowl game.

THE VIEW FROM PITTSBURGH
I fail to see the justice in your treatment of the Sugar Bowl contest. Being a student at the University of Pittsburgh I am naturally partial to the Pitt team. However, since almost a week has elapsed, I feel that I can now look at the game somewhat impartially, and my picture scarcely resembles yours.
All of us from Pitt were heartbroken that we should lose a game in score that we had won in every other respect, and Georgia Tech fans were fervently thanking rabbits' feet, lucky stars and fairy godmothers.
Just one last thing I might add: Pitt's varsity marching band. They were magnificent.
COTTON BOWL: OLE MISS DEPLORES...
We are not particularly proud of the attitude you take in your article on the Cotton Bowl. You seem to think the Rebels backed into a win in this hard-fought contest.
I would like to quote to you a remark by my friend Mr. Carl Walters, of the Slate Times, Jackson, Miss., concerning his views toward the victory of Ole Miss over TCU.
"Friend, you use all that you have that is ready, willing and able, and if what you have is not enough, that is just too, too bad."
We note that it took a total of 44 lines for you to tell just why TCU did not win, then gave only 12 lines of recognition to the Rebels of Ole Miss. Was it that you picked TCU, then had to come up with some excuses?

?Picked TCU? Not on your life! Herman Hickman was one of the few who picked Mississippi over TCU (SI, Dec. 26). He called it his "special upset for the day."—ED.
THE TCU APPROACH
With the football season over and the bowl games behind us, I want to thank you for the wonderful coverage you gave Fort Worth's fine university, Texas Christian.
