sustainability

, college football–not to mention bowl games–and sustainability do not intuitively go in the same sentence. The long-term sustainability of many of these games themselves come into question considering how many of them there are; 6-6 teams have an opportunity to play in showcases such as the Beef-o-Brady’s Bowl. Then, you have the dubious “charity” distinction and questions about whether these “nonprofits” contribute to local communities as much as they say; the nonprofit organizations that organized 24 bowl games two years ago donated less than two percent of total proceeds to charity. Most bowl games claim to do a significant amount of community work, though year to year such activities are spotty–take the Pinstripe Bowl (really?), for example. For now, the low-hanging fruit, recycling , is the norm at these events for now.
