Today it does feel like a let-down, but will be ok

Frankly we earned our little downgrade here in that crap game the other night. All the Rose Bowl committee needed was one excuse to get their beloved USC into the game; they will pack more fans in, generate more revenue, and the headlines look better with two more traditional powers. If I were on the committee and wanted to generate the most money, I'd have to pick USC unless CU had played a close game. With that said, the positives for us are:

1. We don't have to play again in CA. There is a recruiting advantage to play outside of California and especially in Texas. Feels like the Pac12 conf season is too long playing 9 reg. season games plus the additional conf. champ game. We really need more exposure outside the state.
2. I really wanted to play a Big 10 team to see how we stack up, but at least we get a top 12 team with OSU. We don't hear a lot of fanfare about B12 any more, just like they don't hear much about CU any more in Texas, I think just based on geography. I'd rather have played Oklahoma but I think OSU is well-respected this year. I'm glad to play a quality B10 or B12 opponent and maybe finish in the top 7.
