Thoughts on New LA bowl name

There was a point when jimmy kimmel was really funny. That time has passed.

Still it could create some dope content featuring USU or MWC teams, so long as it’s tied to JKL and not just slapping a name on.

Could you imagine Guillermo interacting with players, coaches, etc like he dies during the Oscars or nba finals? Or a trophy featuring Guillermo? Mean tweets could be funny too. Kimmel could feature USU and our players both on his show and bring interest to our game by integrating the show to the game. It could actually be huge.

But it could just be slapping his name on our bowl which is a slap in the face at that point.

I think it is fine. The only comedian i liked to watch was Leno, but have no problem with the bowl game being named after Kimmel. I honestly could care less what the bowl game is called so long as the Aggies are in the bowl this December.

Agreed. On its own it’s a really good bowl for a really good season.

But this bowl has so much potential.

Way better publicity in being featured on JKal than lobbying for months to be in Psych where it’s a second of 2 girls walking into a bar with your non-drinking school featured.

I find myself less and less interested in bowl games. They are just glorified exhibition games that rarely involve an intriguing matchup until we get to the big boy bowls.

Brutal Mr. S but so close to the truth. Bowls have become so pedestrian, almost like the ubiquitous Participation Trophies we now choose to inflict upon our pampered young.
