FAQ: GoDaddy.com Bowl

Saturday January 7th, 2012

The 2012 GoDaddy.com Bowl is just hours away. We're sure you have so many questions. We're here to help. 

What's all this, then? Think of the GoDaddy-Dot-Com Bowl as a refreshing, tangy sorbet to cleanse your palate between the grim Saturday horror of the BBVA Compass Bowl, the January existence of which will never, ever stop upsetting us on a cellular level, and the Monday cavalcade of competent football and title game pageantry.

Where will this game be played? Mobile's Ladd-Peebles Stadium, home of the fledgling South Alabama Jaguars and the Senior Bowl.

When is it on television? Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. on Sunday, January 8. The game will be televised on ESPN.

Whom does it feature? Current conference tie-ins include the Sun Belt and MAC.

What about this year? The promise of real entertainment looms in Mobile, with conference champs Northern Illinois (10-3) and Arkansas State (10-2) in town.

Who will call the game? Clay Matvick, Danny Kanell and Cara Capuano.

Who sponsors the game? GoDaddy.com, a web hosting company that serves as a front for a lucrative business model of convincing gullible gentlemen there will be naked Danica Patrick somewhere, somewhere on that website if they'll only just keep clicking.

• Say. Hasn't this company been in the news recently? It sure has!

Enough about the football. What about the loot? Surprisingly choice for a middle-tier bowl game! Nikon Coolpix S80s await participating players, among other treats.

What mild indignities/wacky activities will visiting teams be subjected to while in town? For the second time this postseason (first was the Military Bowl), bowl teams will be entertained by a hypnotist! We renew our call for photos of either squad's players making chicken noises in trances.
