Can you get bacon for that?

If you haven’t heard, the Humanitarian Bowl has been reborn as the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.  And whoever designed the new logo is a genius.

The football shaped potato is nice, but what really sells it for me is the sour cream and chives adorning it.

Imagine what the design team could have come up with for the new mascot at Ole Miss.  I weep for the missed opportunity.

    Ole Miss should have just come up with generic “what the hell is it” mascot like Western Kentucky has up here.

    Whatever the game’s called, Georgia Tech can’t wait to go back.

      when Tech wins the game that clinches its return trip to Boise, I imagine it’s oh so clever student body will throw potatoes at opposing fans, if the Tech security guards havent taken them into the bathrooms and strip searched them. Probably, they’ll only do that with the nerd girls, which would be a shame because they probably are the only nerds with enough arm to actually get a potato all the way on to the field from a few rows back in the stands.

      Brace for sour cream and chives!

        The genius, Paul Johnson, would do well to take notice of any nerd girls that can hit the field from the stands; as they’ll be far more accurate than any of the QBs on his roster.

        Perhaps not actual potatoes, but waffle fries, for sure!

      The Humanitarian was the ACC’s Independence Bowl equivalent for a while. This doesn’t hold true anymore as the ACC now *has* the Independence Bowl.

    Please let large inflatables of Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head roam the sidelines … We need pictures of GA Paul Johnson and one of those … punching in the nost preferably.


  4. I’d have preferred a football-shaped order of Waffle House hash browns, smothered and covered.

    Will Spud Webb lead the parade of snowmobiles through Boise?

    Or shaped like a taco:” If God didn’t intend man to perform cunnilingus, why did he shape it like a taco?”
