Rose Bowl has long ruled the CF bowl/playoff establishment. Everything evolved around what the Rose Bowl demanded.

Now the Rose Bowl don’t have $hit to say about anything. The two top media teams in the PAC12 in their beloved Rose Bowl has told them “see ya” and joined the Big 10. In the end neither of those 2 schools or the Big10 gave a damn about the Rose Bowl.

The old adage “be kind to people on your way up cause you might see them on your way down” applies to the Rose Bowl.

PAC 12 will cease to exist so the Rose Bowl will not be losing just USC and UCLA, they will be losing the entire conference. While I’ve never understood why people cowed down to the Rose Bowl in the first place, whatever power they had is disappearing rapidly.

I’d like to personally thank the Rose Bowl and their historical arrogance for UF’s first national title.

Thank you Rose Bowl.
Since geography no longer seems to matter, I think Notre Dame should play half their home games in Pasadena. It would be the perfect match of arrogance and lack of self awareness .

Wouldn’t you think the PAC and Big 12 will try to align something into a meg conference?
