I've been to 4 Rose Bowls and it used be a magial experience. It is a beautiful game played in a beautiful stadium in a beuatiful part of the world.
The Rose Bowl used to stand for everything good about college football: tradition, pomp and circumstance, New Years Day, etc. Now it stands for all that is wrong with college football: arrogance, stupidty, greed etc
I now hate the Rose Bowl because the B1G AD's and commissioner are using it as a shield to deflect the fact that they are too weak or too stupid to effectuate play-off games in the north.
So in the name of preserving the tradition of the Rose Bowl they are taking that tradition and wiping their ass with it. Thanks Delany.
