"Follow the money." Deepthroat
This is a personal online journal to explore the money end of college football. The X's and O' are pretty well covered elsewhere but other forum see the money as the side show while the football game might be the side show.

Gator Bowl Association Executive Director Rick Catlett has the job of filling seats (and by extension hotels and restaurants) in Jacksonville on January 1, 2010. Once upon a time the Gator Bowl had some cache. Second tier but with fewer bowls and a New Years Day slot the Gator invitation was a prize.
In the latest bowl shuffle the Jacksonville game lost ground and now Mr. Catlett's strategy is to rely on gimmicks wanting to sell the farewell Bobby Bowden game (and Florida State by the way). So tantalizing is this prize:
Certainly the relationship between the ACC and Gator Bowl had been strained by the failed championship games and we without a doubt seeing a grab for cash. Unfortunately, the revenge and revenue will not revive the flagging fortunes of a bowl that is sliding into mere obscurity.
