To Mchigan Fans: The Rose Bowl is the grand daddy of prizes
Don't let the Buckeye/Gator championship overshadow the Rose Bowl.

This is the game that the Big Ten and Pac Ten built and teams used to turn down chances of playing for the championship just to play in Pasadena.

1. As an Iowan I'm not a big fan of Michigan...
But today I am (USC? x( UGH!)

Go Wolverines! (at least for today!)


(I had the honor of attending the Rose Bowl in 1986 - yes to watch Iowa lose to UCLA *sigh*. Colorado Blvd. on New Year's Eve is indescribable and the Parade of Roses unbelievable. I can see why teams would choose to attend the game, win or lose it's spectacular1)

7. I too grew up in Iowa, we always cheered for the Big Ten
team playing in the Rose Bowl, regardless who they were playing.

3. They all have the same payout $21.5M for SEC and Big Ten schools and Notre Dame

and $17M for schools in other conferences in the BCS

4. Thanks to the BCS, today it's the Losers Bowl
That's what my favorite little Buckeye fan called it this morning. I just hope she's not too disappointed next week this time.

Gotta love those Buckeye fans for their loyalty.

5. I'm mostly a 'fan' of having a good game - something rarely seen in the Rose Bowl, sadly.
Edited on Mon Jan-01-07 05:17 PM by TahitiNut
Over the years, the games haven't been examples of the teams' abilities - often mistake-ridden and sometimes zebrakicked, they've been disappointing for those of us who are more interested in seeing good play than in who 'wins.'

That said ... Go Blue! (My heart's 'home' is northern California, not Lalaland.) :evilgrin:

6. Nothing's as good as having 2 teams jump you, and you have no opportunity for rejoinder.

8. A one loss Big Ten team is usually going to be ranked lower than

a one loss SEC champion. The only reason it was a "jump" was Mich wasn't a one loss team until they did lose.
