No Profanity this Time; Great Bowl Game Names

4 posts in this topic

Tonight's college bowl game is called: Bad Boys Mowers Gasparilla Bowl. 

The rustling sound we just heard was Knute Rockne and Bear Bryant rolling over in their graves.

Everything is about sponsorship now. I hate it.

I miss the days of just normal bowl game names: Peach Bowl, Orange Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Rose Bowl, etc.

In addition to the ridiculousness of sponsorship- driven names: New Years Day used to be one of my favorite days of the year.  6-8 bowl games, all with names such as you listed, and all with some meaning.  The college playoffs may have solved the "mythical title" issue, and further enriched the networks and the NCAA, but for this guy, it has ruined New Years Day bowl watching. 

Note: I put may in bold above, because there is clearly still some controversy over who belongs in that final four.
