...if CU had pulled out a win againt USC, which they could have easily done, then we wouldn't even be having the conversation...but they still would have brought the fat women and dope to Pasadena. So what? They still earned the right to be there, in either scenario.
USC will almost always produce better ratings on TV, especially in Rose Bowl games. So what? If that's the most important ingredient to the Rose Bowl, then just give USC the Rose Bowl trophy and let them keep it in Heretic Hall forever.
Besides, would we be having this conversation if USC had lost to Penn State, which they almost did? No fucking way, and you know it.
