Technically, you could get naming rights to a college bowl game too if you wanted. All it takes is money. It ain’t as if Jimmy Kimmel is some beloved celebrity in the NCAA. He just paid for it. That’s all.
And here’s the thing… this is hardly the most absurdly-named college bowl game. It’s much better than some of these others from BCS history:
- Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl
- Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl
- Visit Florida Tangerine Bowl
- Guaranteed Rate Bowl
- Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl
- Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
So hate all you want. My suggestion? Make more money and name it something better.
