During last season’s inaugural Duke’s Mayo Bowl, fans expected to see a mayo bath instead of an energy tub at the end of the game.
Well, everyone was disappointed when the normal Gatorade containers splashed over Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst after the Badgers beat Wake Forest. However, there is still hope of a mayo bath for this year’s Duke’s Mayo Bowl between North Carolina and South Carolina.
On Sunday, Duke’s Mayo Bowl chief executive, Danny Morrison, spoke in a video apologizing for last year’s disappointment and he added that the winning team could endure a mayo bath this year like that. No matter what: the winning team must pour mayo to their coach, and then $10,000 will be donated to a charity of the team’s choice.
So it looks like the mayo bath is entirely up to this year’s winning team. Last year, the Duke Mayo Bowl’s Twitter enticed viewers by posting a bucket of mayo, even though they never used it to pour it on the winning coach. This post proves that a mayo bath is possible, the winning team just needs to act on it.
Neither the Tarheels nor the Gamecocks have responded to Morrison’s request. But, it looks like their answer probably won’t be made public until after the bowl game to keep the element of surprise.
If UNC wins the Duke’s Mayo Bowl, you’ll likely find head coach Mack Brown the victim of a mayo bath. Or, if South Carolina wins, you’ll likely see head coach Shane Beamer covered in Duke’s mayo.
Stay tuned on December 30 when the Duke’s Mayo Bowl kicks off to see if a coach is covered in a creamy white mayo.
