Fiesta Bowl Countdown: Commercials

Oregon football coach Chip Kelly starred in his very own UPS commercial this year. You’ve probably seen it already — Logistics! — but if you haven’t you can check it out above.

I’m not the biggest fan of those UPS commercials. It takes lots of work behind the scenes to do anything. Other than calling that hard work logistics, UPS is not doing anything special. But Kelly did a nice job and scored some face time and exposure for his offense.

Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has been in commercials before, too. Check this one out.

He has been in others (I seem to remember a mentoring commercial from a few years back that involved Snyder sending in plays to a child playing a football game on a Nintendo 64) but I couldn’t find them online.

Whatever you think of these commercials, let’s just agree both are better than the one Bob Stoops starred in this year. Stoops says AT&T didn’t even use his own voice when he says “hello.”

Next up on the countdown: For the second straight year, K-State will play in one of the most intriguing bowl games of the season.

Last time on the countdown: Chris Harper, then and now.

Editor’s Note: On Jan. 3, the Kansas State football team will face Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl. With that in mind, I am counting down to the big game at University of Phoenix Stadium by attempting to write 21 blog posts in 21 days. I use the word “attempting” because I can only think of so many blog ideas. I’m confident that I can go 21 for 21, but your help is appreciated. Feel free to send a blog idea (or two) my way at or via twitter @KellisRobinett.
