Potato Bowl Already Attracting Jabs

The digs are beginning to roll in re: the newly named Famous Idaho Potatoes Bowl. Graham Watson of rivals.com offers: “I would be highly disappointed if every meal didn't include some sort of spud and if the players didn't compete in a potato sack race. It's hard to fathom what kind of swag this bowl will be handing out: A sack of potatoes? Mr. Potato Head dolls? Bags of the TGI Friday's potato skins chips? Or maybe, in sticking with the logo theme, normal items made to look like potatoes. Like the limited edition potato Xbox? Or the potato iPod? What about the Bose potato-shaped noise-canceling earphones?” More here.

Question: What will Chris Berman and the sportscasters at ESPN say about this newly named bowl?
