What's Inside Those Bowl Goodie Bags?

If you're a college football player whose team is in a bowl game, life is good. iPods, video games, cameras, navigation systems ... these are some of the items contained in gift packages that bowl games give to each player. Each bag can have a value up to $500. In addition, players can also receive up to $350 in gifts from their school, pushing the total postseason haul to $850 (cheerleader not included). Granted, some of this stuff is crap, but don't be surprised to see postseason gifts end up on eBay. Just remember what it was like back in the day. You could do a lot of damage on campus with $850 in your wallet. And for a humorous look at what's in a bowl gift bag, check out The Onion.

all they get for the nat'l championship game is a Portable XM Satellite radio
and Commemorative Tourneau wrist watch?! guess the chance to play for a NCAA Title is kinda cool too.

Insight Bowl looks like the winner at first glance. Xbox 360 for the insight bowl? mediocrity does pay off.
