That's the emotional reaction

The truth is we didn't earn the Rose Bowl.  UW did.  Following the same history that makes the rose bowl great we never would have played there.  

I make no excuses and give no apologies.  We came and we won.  End of story.  But we didn't EARN our presence there in the traditional Rose Bowl sense.  A Decade ago we never would have had the opportunity.  The fact of the matter is the team that earned it turned it down for something better.  The fact that there IS something better than the Rose Bowl is a big deal that not enough people acknowledge.

The fact that the only reason we were able to go at all is because Colorado got an extra L by playing UW in the championship game that we got to duck makes it even worse imo.
