AMERICAN'S PASTIME? American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco yesterday said that the conference will "consider creating its own bowl game, potentially in South Florida." Aresco: "We think ESPN's done a heck of a job with some of the bowls they've created, and we think it's time we did something like that. We like the idea of it." In Tampa, Greg Auman writes Marlins Park is "one potential venue to explore." The Big East has a "strong recent history with bowl games in baseball stadiums." Its current agreement "includes the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium and the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl at Tropicana Field" (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 5/22).
