Dienhart: What's in your B1G team's bowl swag bag?
Street and Smith Sports Business Daily is out with its annual rundown of bowl swag. What is swag? I had a guy affiliated with the military tell me once that it stands for “stuff we all get.” And, well, the thick-necked Big Ten players are gonna get some nice “stuff.”
Check out the items the players will find stuffed in their bowl goodie bags upon arrival at their postseason destinations. You won’t find any socks on this list—or giant pink bunny costumes from Aunt Clara.
