I honestly feel sorry for anyone who did not watch that game. In terms of next day water cooler talk it was on par with Super Bowl commercials, to be quite frank.

Every ku fan who works for me in the office "had it on in the background" lol.  It was the NCAA version of Taylor at SOFI.

Unrelated:  did our classy Af team of gentlemen let the Wolfpack players come out and eat some of the Body Of Tart after we devoured his face?

It wouldn’t have surprised me one bit if Avery broke off a piece and served it to each ncsu player willing to take what would effectively be PopTart communion

What I find interesting about the Pop Tarts Bowl hype is the same people in charge of the bowl, the publicity, social media, etc. are the same people who have been in charge of the Cheez-It Bowl. Last year's Cheez-It Bowls, there were two of them, had some juice. This year's Cheez-It Bowl has absolutely zero juice. No one seems to be the least bit excited for Iowa vs. Tennessee.

Yeah, the Cheez-It Bowl and the Cheez-It Citrus Bowl. They provided the exact same perks to the players too and had the same marketing initiatives. They obviously had a hard time distinguishing both so Kellanova just changed the first game to poop tarts instead of Cheez-It.

I read that Kellanova used their internal marketing for both, could be wrong but that's what I saw. It seems if they did, they spent like 20x more and had the far more creative people on the Pop Tarts team.

i wonder then if it was pop tarts who gave the agency more latitude with their creativity versus the cheez-it corporate bros.

or maybe they just decided to try something new, these people aren’t robots

either way, they collectively got the PTB right

They were probably like well it’s the most boring football team on the entire planet ever playing in the cheez-it citrus bowl so why waste any effort on it?

of course he had that sign but did anyone test him to see if he was telling the truth?

Yeah, as much as it's fun to "admire" Iowa and their shitty offense, sometimes I need them to be mushed like that out of pure cathartic release
