Years ago, a top 5 finish and trip to the Rose Bowl would be considered a great year. If we've gotten to the point where the Rose Bowl is a turd sammich, then we have allowed the NCAA to totally screw up college football.
I'd rather go back to the old system with all it's ambiguity about "who's #1" if that's the case.
Don't give me the years ago rant. Years ago, women couldn't vote, blacks couldn't sit at the same counter as whites and homosexuals couldn't get married. Things change daily and so the significance of the bowl games. I will say that the more the day goes on the more irritated I am that we didn't get in. Washington basically played 2 less games than us. OSU got in sitting at home while we beat OSU and won the Big 10, the best conference in football. And F Michigan- I cannot wait to get them at home next year and make Harbaugh our dog.
