re: LACK OF OUTBACK BOWL ADVERTISINGPosted by teeMike on 12/26/13 at 1:41 pm to oneg8rh8r
Watched the 30 minute Outback Bowl preview on ESPN yesterday FWIW. Production was lame. As far as Bowl promotion, this doesn't surprise me. With the Rose Bowl being the top bill on Wednesday, an unranked Iowa against LSU at 12pm is just not exciting from a Network perspective. To be honest, it's interesting that an unranked team coming off a losing season last year gets a New Years Day Bowl.
They had a half hour segment just for Outback Bowl preview. I had never seen that for any bowl before, maybe the championship game but that's usually part of a college football show where they talk about multiple topics.
The closer it gets to New Years, the more advertising you'll see.
