Bowl Game Bling

December 21, 2006

Once upon a time, college football players that were lucky enough to get the opportunity to play in a post season bowl game received a gift bag that consisted of a sweat shirt, a ball cap, and some sort of commemorative souvenir. Well, those days are over.

Bowl games are big business now, and the people that plan those events try to sweeten the pot, so to speak, in order to make their individual event just a little better than the next and to get the top teams to sign on the dotted line. With the NCAA now allowing bowl gift bags to have a value of $500 per player, the pot has never been sweeter.
