    Insight Bowl Gift Bag

    Our players will receive a Sony Gift Suite (whatever that is), a Fossil watch, a hat, and Ogio Bounty Hunter or Hermit laptop pack.

    Seems to be a pretty standard gift bag. Here is a link to what all of the bowls are giving.

    I know these gift bags are standard practice, but how is this not some sort of NCAA violation?

    I'm with you on this one. When my brother ran for ISU, he wasn't even allowed to accept a free pair of shoes after winning a local 5K, but these guys can accept all this stuff? Is it because they are calling it "a gift" and not a reward or payment?

    Re: Insight Bowl Gift Bag

    I think the "gift suites" are where the sponsoring company (Sony in this case) sets up a display of their products at the team hotels and the players can pick what they want up to a certain dollar amount. Kinda like how some bowls give the players a $300 or $400 Best Buy gift card and let them have a private shopping spree after normal store hours.

    From the bottom of the website, I linked to.

    Notes: All times listed are ET. Product details are provided as they were available. Most watches, rings, clothing and luggage are custom-made with the bowl logo. Gift suites are set up as private events in which game participants, and often bowl VIPs, are given an order form and allowed to select a gift, or gifts, up to a value that is predetermined by each specifi c bowl, not to exceed the NCAA limit of $500 per person.
    Sources: Bowl committees and vendors
