    Bowl Gifts

    I first heard of player gifts years ago when it was announced that basketball players got gifts at the conference tournament. This artilce and the link to Sports Business Journal indicates a potential bounty of $850 yet, NCAA gripes about a free lunch. I wonder what's in a Sony Suite and if a Fossil watch is really cool.

    Weve got a pretty good football conference, and weve got a pretty good conference overall. Were still walking around with our heads held high and our chest out, about that. Paul Rhoads

    Someone already posted this. My guess for the Sony Gift Suite would be either a PS3 or a PSP. The watch has the Insight Bowl Logo as the face of it. Players are also getting $300 to Best Buy to get "travel entertainment"...yeah, alright.

    The Sony Gift Suite just means they get a list of Sony products and they can choose up to $300 worth of stuff.
