Congratulations. That's the most USC-centric thing I think I've read on this board for some time. I don't think most of the Pac 12 thinks they're fortunate that USC was chosen to play in the Rose Bowl. Probably most of the Pac 12 wonders whether they will also get leapfrogged by a USC team that finished below them in conference play, even though they won their division.
Maybe USC will honor the Pac 12 next by taking a shit in the bathrooms around the conference.
