You Have Made It To The Rose Bowl, Now Lets See What You Won!

by Mac D

Curtsey of our friends at The SportsBusiness Journal,  I now know what you get when you go to a bowl game.  I never realized but ever bowl game whether it be the Rose Bowl or the Little Cesar's Bowl get a gift bag.  The NCAA mandates that these bags can not be over $550.  The last gift bag I got cost $10 so these must be super sweet. 

Let's see what the Spartan players get at the Rose Bowl. (pictures are approximation of what the items might look like.  I am not very up on fashion nor anything past 1997)

Fossil Watch

New Era 59Fifty cap

Ogio backpack

A Gift Suite


Actually a Gift Suite is exactly like the old school Wheel Of Fortune Bonus Round where Student Athletes pick which prize or prizes they want as long as the value does not exceed $550.

Let's see what The Wolverines get in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl (pictures are approximation of what the items might look like.  I am not very up on fashion)

Fossil Watch

Ogio Cube backpack 

That Fun Gift Suite


WHAT NO FREE WINGS!!! If I was on Michigan's team I would be upset.  I would want some free wings out of play in the Bdubs bowl. 


Now before you go off on College Athletes getting free gifts think about the millions of dollars schools and other companies make off of College Football players who never see a single dime.
