A scandal with the Fiesta Bowl has been simmering for a while out in the Arizona desert, and it has just boiled over. The nonprofit organization that runs the bowl fired its CEO John Junker today over allegations of a whole slew of improper ways of using money. Illegal campaign donations, a $33,000 birthday party, and flowers for the University of Texas admissions office are all there.
It doesn't mean anything in the grand scale of the BCS; if the Fiesta Bowl somehow crumbles over this (which is unlikely), it'll just be replaced by the Cotton Bowl or something. It shouldn't be too long though until the Playoff PAC guys start crowing about this one way or another.
