Forget the actual bowl gifts, here's what each bowl game SHOULD give out


Earlier this morning we published a list of bowl gifts, courtesy of the Sports Business Journal.

While those gifts are great, we couldn't help but think: What kind of gifts would fit these bowl games even better, or better yet, what SHOULD they really be giving out?

This is one of those ideas that we have on occasion that can only reach its true potential with help from creative minds like yours. We took a stab at nine of them below, but all bowl games are fair game.

If you have something fitting that you'd like to add, send the bowl name, and the suggestion to me @CoachSamz or email them to me at

The best / most appropriate ones will get updated in the chart in red font, with credit to the Twitter handle / email address.
