    I think I get this. I think. No, no I don't.

    Multiple police escorts, and I don't mean to jail. Good food. Chances to take pictures with your favorite coach. It's a delightful experience.

    I bet the Bluebonnet Bowl was a hoot to cover. Don't know why but it just sounds like it was.

    So what are the giveaways?
  6. I have set a personal best in Most Attractive Women Seen In A 5-Day Period.

    We got a really nice fleece. And a really nice hospi stronghold. And great food. And tickets to Mavs, Stars and Cowboys games. And a great hotel room at $92/day. On and on and on and on.

    Glad to see somebody praising the Gator Bowl...I enjoyed my lone Gator Bowl trip a couple years back.

    Plus, it's nice to see someone praising Jacksonville on this board, just for variety's sake.

    And the Cotton Bowl giveaway -- at least for the humble scribes -- is a very, very nice Columbia fleece, emblazoned with the Cotton Bowl logo. Plus great trips.

    Players get iPods, I think, plus various other goodies.

    (Murcielago beat me to it, but that doesn't mean I'll just let all this typing go to waste.)

    All bowls seem to be giving players iPods these days. I know one team that got them three straight years.
    What's the hotel in Dallas?
  9. Omni Mandalay. Gets a 4 of 4 on the Murci Grading Scale.

    Apropos of almost nothing here, the ACC basketball tournament hotel rate is 199.
    92 is indeed a bonus.

    Plus, the folks at the ACC Tourney act like they're doing you a special favor by allowing you to cover the world's greatest event.

    Our paper has always been very good at not making writers bunk up. You need a little space, you know?
    But at that rate? Bring in the rollaway.
