    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.

    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.
