    Fiesta Bowl gets $1 million fine

    And will stay in the BCS.

    Fiesta Bowl fined $1M but will stay in BCS - College Football News | FOX Sports on MSN

    A million bucks is nothing to that bowl...what a joke.

    That's not even a slap on the wrist. It's like a light tap.

    I'd guess to the BCS. BCS is a separate organization from the NCAA. Easy way for the NCAA to spend a ton of money to stay non-profit by outsourcing the upper level bowl games.

    Wonder if those who were investigating this looked in the mirror and realized they're a bunch of hypocrites...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Charity.

    Great tweet by Dan Wetzel:

    Task Force to Feista: 1. Give $1 mil to charity (which you're already suppose to do). 2. Keep paying for our golf
    Wetzel also tweeted that Junker put $770,000 on his Fiesta AMEX in 2006.

    I think it will turn out that the Fiesta staying in the BCS will mean more money for the Big 12. If the Cotton Bowl got moved up to the BCS, the Big 12 would have lost one of their best paying bowls at over a $7mil payout and who knows what the Fiesta would have paid (and if in fact they would stayed a Big 12 Bowl) after the demotion. Plus already having the Insight bowl in Phoenix fighting with it for a date and conference slotting.
