    Bowl Game Responsibilities. Could it be more?

    I believe it was noted on this site awhile back that the Liberty Bowl has a charitable partner in the Shriners Children Hospital network, a corportate partner in Auto Zone, and the City partner in Memphis. This model brings me to some questions…………

    Do all bowl have a charitable beneficiary from the events?

    If they do not why is this not being done more often to become common place? These events after all are celebrations and exhibitions for the schools and cities that are participating. Why is there not a giving back promotion around these events that can highlight how generous these corporate sponsors are as well as getting into the holiday giving season?

    This seems like such an awesome way to put a positive light on college football that seems to be in a corrupt and greed covered persona these days.

    Anyone else ever think about ways for college football to do good for America other than just paying coaches and schools a lot of money that just goes back into football?

    Silly Rant Over


    Smoke um if you got um

    I don't know if all bowl games do it, but the charitable aspects of the Liberty Bowl seem pretty cool and looks like they take it seriously. Great game to be a part of. BTW - It is St. Judes, not Shriners, but I am sure both organizations are wonderful.

    The more you look at the Liberty Bowl website, the more impressive this entire event is. I am not going down early enough to do much of this, but there is a golf tournament, a HS football all-star game, a BBQ contest, a sold-out rodeo event, a parade, and a ballroom gala -- all tied into the Liberty Bowl.

    Very, very cool events and I am so happy we are going to Memphis instead of Independence or NYC. Tulsa is a no-win matchup, lord, if we lose I will be crushed. But other than the opponent, I think this will be a great time!
