Sugar Bowl – Hawaii vs. Georgia – Sony Wins!
The Sugar Bowl is giving the players from Hawaii and Georgia a Sony digital camcorder.
The Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla., Wisconsin vs. Tennessee, is giving a Sony digital camera.
The participants in the Rose Bowl, Illinois and USC, will receive a Sony Bravia home-theater system.
NCAA guidelines dealing with amateurism state that a bowl can spend up to $500 per team member, allowing each school to also give merchandise worth up to $350 per player.
Japanese products win in other bowl games –
The players in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Penn State vs. TAMU will receive a Nintendo Wii.
The Buckeyes and Tigers in the BCS Chamipionship game will also receive a Nintendo Wii video-game system.
The Holiday Bowl in San Diego will give away the Nintendo Wii to ASU and UT players.
Looks to me like it are Japanese electronics makers, Sony and Nintendo, that are cleaning up with the bowl games.
What would you like to get for $350?
