Providing college football players with “extra-benefits” is anathema, unless they are the toast of the town at a bowl game, where they may receive up to $550 worth of free things. Sports Business Daily has the complete list of 2013-14 College Football Bowl Gifts. Here are a few highlights.
Little Caesars Pizza Bowl: Leather luggage set. No gift suite…because spending Christmas away from your family in a Detroit hotel wasn’t depressing enough.
Idaho Potato Bowl: Port Authority winter coat, beanie, ski gloves. San Diego State players should get a lot of mileage out of those.
Texas Bowl: Belt buckle, obligatory.
11 Bowl Games: A football. That’ll be useful. No idea where they’d obtain one of those.
Military Bowl: Sony Playstation 4. Slow clap for the military-industrial complex.
Cotton Bowl: Undisclosed. I think we all know what that means.
Sun Bowl: Helen of Troy hairdryer. Lane Kiffin swears by the one he got last year. Not clear whether the sombreros are complementary.
Heart of Dallas Bowl: ESPN Cap. Had to get rid of them somehow.
Chick-Fil-A Bowl: $300 VISA gift card. Chick-Fil-A Gift Card. Yes and yes.
