Guaranteed to at least have a much lower percentage of CC talk than just about any other thread put up today.
Rose Bowl Open Thread
It will be interesting to see what TCU's 4-2-5 scheme can do against Wisconsin's rushing attack. If they can stop Wisconsin, then I will support our 3-3-5.
A team from Texas is playing a team from Wisconsin yet a lady from Georgia is the Rose Bowl Marshall. What am I missing?
I hope both he and Wisconsin lose.
game intro video with students and campus shots best one i've seen in a while. no stereotypical top 40 garbage music with big hits and touchdown clips.
Rose Bowl does not allow RAWK
im gonna enjoy watching a power big ten offense run over some bitches.
I still can't figure why Wisconsin was a 3 point underdog.
TCU pulled a Purdue with their helmets.
It's weird seeing the crowd about 75-25% in support of the B1G Ten team in the Rose Bowl. That's to be expected the way Wisconsin travels and TCU not being a Pac-10 team, but still weird.
But both teams have way more fans than what Michigan usually has there. Blame it on lack of local interest(USC) for increased ticket availability
I think TCU not being a local Pac-10 team is the biggest factor, but Texas is also a divided state several times over (thus diluting the potential non-alumni fanbase) whereas Wisconsin only has the Badgers and it's been 11 years since they played in Pasadena. That, and TCU has about 9,000 students versus Wisconsin's 42,000 so they have a smaller alumni base.
Mlive reporting Greg Robinson out and RR retained
This is a great game
Doesn't play in the night game.
That "downed kick" is coming out to the 20 if reviewed.
The TCU player clearly carried it over the goal line. Position of the feet is irrelevant.
Wisconsin's rather confident they're going to get the 2 pt conversion they way they're draining the clock...
Wasn't too impressive either. Seems to me that he could have had a touchdown (assuming they could have made a 4th and inches) if he'd used his timeouts better.
That may be the wine talking.
why the hell would you not give it to clay on the 2pt conversion. stupid, stupid call on the shotgun pass. at least try a play action
Humiliating post-season for the Leaders and Legends alike.
I can't think of a worse day for the conference (somebody's going to say the day the logo/names were released, but let's get serious) Arguably the best team in the conference, which was being considered for the NC game should either of the top two had lost, loses in the Rose Bowl, where the Big Ten has only won one game in the last decade (screw you, Pryor.) Your player of the year is shut down by a middling SEC team, two of your teams are blown out, and you go 0-3 against the SEC.
This morning the Big 10 was 2-0 in bowls, and the SEC was 0-3
Now the Big 10 is 2-5 (!!!) and the SEC is 3-3.
