The Rose Bowl

Tonight is the biggest game of the year for college football, the National Championship game which happens to be the Rose Bowl this year.

As many of you know, we here at Jiggsblog are for the most part Cal Bears fans. Given that our beloved Bears are once again not competing in the Rose Bowl, I have a difficult decision to make: Who do I root for when I'm watching tonight's game?

Do I root for USC, in a statement of solidarity for the Pac-10?

Do I root for Texas, under the philosophy, "I root for the Bears and whoever is playing the other Pac-10 teams"?

SC: They finished out the year ranked #1.
Texas: They are the underdog.

SC: They are the 7 point favorites.
Texas: They are the underdog.

And lastly:

Should I root for Texas because the USC guys are pompous asses with big egos, or should I root for USC because Texas kept Cal out of the Rose Bowl last year by exploiting the BCS ranking system?

Okay Booty...

(1) Let last year go. It's not Texas's fault that they made it up to 4th in the rankings and were the automatic bid. Can't blame Utah for making the other automatic at 6th. Bitterness does not fit a Cal fan. Sad optimism does. Next year, we sweep the Pac-10 and go to the Rose Bowl.

(2) Fuck USC. Pull for Texas. If USC wins, then it's good for the conference and we can live with it, but nonetheless, fuck USC.

As a resident of the heart of Big XII country I am rooting for Texas. As a hater of Pete Carroll (and pretty much the entire Pac 10) I am rooting for Texas. As a fan of Rick Barnes I am rooting for Texas.

I think USC is sleeping on Texas, they think they're so crazy good that they can beat anybody, well I got news for them Texas is pretty fucking good.

such a great question. alot of times i'm an asshole...so i would love to see Texas fuck up USC in front of their fans and lose a game. maybe see Leinhart break his leg like what happened to my beloved miami hurricanes and willis magahee from a few years ago in what was the greatest atrocity of this generation....how that ref blew that call i have no idea but i digress. anyway, USC has so many weapons, home field advantage, and of course the experience of playing in the big game. texas has a big chip on their shoulder. i have no idea who will win. i'm thinking texas 21 USC 34.

Nick said...

You fucking crybaby. McGahee got his leg broken in like 40 places and that douche still went in the first round. And usurped the running back job from the obviously superior Travis Henry.

The Bush family is from Texas. That is enough for me to root for USC for the rest of my life.

By the way, in Australia, root means fuck.

Brooke - we know. Fortunately for us we're American.

I want the pac10 to look strong, so USC winning would not make me unhappy. In the end, though, I don't really give a shit and I'm not even sure if I'll watch the game.

Brookelina said...

And not from Kansas.

Oh...sorry....

Brooke: The young men on the Texas football team probably had very little to do with W getting re-elected.

Regardless, GO USC!

USC is evil. I wish someone would knock that asshole right off his white horse.

And they have a stupid fight song, too.

Go... anyone but USC.

Nick said...

and that from a Big 10 woman.

Nick said...

Fucking Texas. I have an idea, let's fumble a punt in the first minute and a half of the game. Stupid twats.

At least the 'Noles lost.

Twat is a great word, so much more dignified than cunt!
I don't do much football, but I wouldn't be a true stalker if I didn't leave comments on the majority of your posts. Basketball rules!
