"What's the term today, 'swag'? I don't even know what that means." -- Brady Hoke
Well, Brady, sit tight and learn all about swag. Bowl swag, that is.
It's time once again to look at what Big Ten players will be receiving at their bowl games later this month and in early January.
Sports Business Journal has the entire bowl gift breakdown:
Little Caesars Pizza Bowl (Purdue): Timely Watch Co. watch, leather duffel bag, commemorative football
Insight Bowl (Iowa): Gift suite, Fossil watch, cap, Ogio Convoy backpack
Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas (Northwestern): Toshiba 32-inch flat-screen television, Fossil watch, belt buckle, T-shirt, backpack
Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (Illinois): Soundmatters Personal Audiophile loudspeaker, Fossil watch, cap, Timbuk2 custom messenger bag
TicketCity Bowl (Penn State): Gift suite, Timely Watch Co. watch
Capital One Bowl (Nebraska): $420 shopping trip to a local Best Buy, Timely Watch Co. watch

Think the Michigan State and Northwestern players are the big winners, but I need a new TV. What do you think?
