And that's why you keep the Rose Bowl as Big 10 vs Pac 12. It seems Southerners don't respect tradition.

Nah, let them try it. They'll learn the hard way why it's not a good idea to mess around with palm trees, especially those with lotsa dead fronds that are ready to fall off.

I thought the Rose Bowl was Stanford vs. Michigan State. Didn't know until this article the BCS Championship was being played at the Rose Bowl.

As someone who grew up in Los Angeles, you can't TP a palm tree. I've tried.

What a bunch of shiatstain hicks. Isn't this the same school that had a bunch of trees killed by an overzealous fan. You think they of all people would have a modicum of respect for others landscaping.

Whatever.
I just came here to waste mine (and yours) time saying there's way too many bowl games for a reasonable person to even begin to give a rodents rectum about and how I'm too cool too waste my time watching such nonsense.

Some moran in the AU athletic dept. tweets they wonder what the palm trees would look like rolled.

Because apparently God's Team™ is going to have Jesus himself dressed-out in Pasadena to cover Kelvin Benjamin.

Auburn reminds me a lot of Clemson, both schematically on offense and with all the soft-factor bullshiat -- babbling about "destiny" and so on.

Also, how have we not had a CFB thread for the bowl games so far?  We missed the chance for some epic lulz in that train wreck of a game Ole Miss and GaTech just played.

I'll agree that the original comment was unfairly broad, but is there any fan base in the SEC or southern half of the Big XII that you would truly expect to behave better?

Nah, I was at work, so I couldn't watch.  Have to be content with watching the bloodbath that Oregon-Texas is going to be.

HA!  I grew up a Cal fan since Mike White.  I was at The Play, heard Elway's whining, and I was pissed the 7-4 Bears weren't considered for a bowl.  20-19 forever!

I was stationed in Jax in 1991 when Cal went to the Citrus Bowl and since my parents (both Cal Alums) went to all the bowl games, I got to watch them stomp Clemson and finish 10-2 behind Washington for the Rose Bowl.

I thought I knew what football futility was, then I went to Vanderbilt.

Gouged the Navy QB's eyes and was later kicked out of the game. One of the announcers slammed him and said it looked like he wanted to get kicked out of the game.

The Rose Bowl stadium has two upcoming games -- the Rose Bowl, and the BCS championship.

To them it's payback for the north not respecting their tradition 150 years ago.

I've never heard of Auburn fans rolling anything at the site of a bowl game. Sounds like manufactured drama to keep people interested during the break until the game.

I watched that today and you are right - I am predicting he will be in prison within three years. I was waiting for him to just shoot someone before it was over.

Dead palm fronds stay on palm trees a looooooooong time. Sometimes you have to saw those suckers off.

Oh yeah because racking up anywhere from 300-500 rushing yards a game and against two of the stoutest defenses in the country is very soft factor. Clemson tried to finesse people this season, Auburn lined up and ran right over them.

The entire ACC is a soft factor.
