Borrowed from Cosby Sweaters, here’s the list (as compiled by Sports Business Daily) of what each player who plays in a bowl game will receive in swag for playing in said bowl game. The list of items for each game is pretty sweet in its own way, and it’s hard to determine which game is offering up the best stuff.  All I know is, reading this list makes me wish a) I had some football skills, b) that I went to college, and c) that at some point in my life I had a pony (unrelated I know). 2012 Bowl gifts to participants Gildan New Mexico Sat., Dec. 15, 1 p.m. (ESPN), Albuquerque, N.M.
