The Rose Bowl: Why Not Boise State?
There is much speculation over the opponent Rose Bowl organizers will invite to play Michigan. The Los Angeles Times’ Chris Dufrense runs through the likely options which include Notre Dame, LSU, Louisville or Rutgers.
Why not Boise State? The Broncos are 12-0 and BCS-eligible, and are the only undefeated team other than the mighty Buckeyes. All of Idaho will drive down for the game and the Rose Parade, and the country would eagerly tune in to watch David take on, if not Goliath, then the second biggest Philistine. Every college football fan would be cheering for the Broncos, and the build up would be immense.
C’mon Rose Bowl Committee. Do the right thing. Invite Boise State.
