What’s your take on a Rose Bow matchup between say USC vs. Boise State?
Well, under a new provision, that can be invoked once between 2011-14, the Rose Bowl would be required to invite a non-BCS conference team like Boise State, if that team is in the top 12 of the final BCS standings and either the Pac-10 champ or Big Ten winner is in the national title game.
Here’s the story I wrote in today’s paper about the new BCS provision.
Ohh Thurmond: The perfect picture is always when someone makes a play against ‘SC
Hi all, I’m here at Pac-10 Media Day, and wanted to let know that former West Covina High School star Walter Thurmond, now an all-conference defensive back at Oregon, is also expected to be in attendance. He will join new Ducks coach Chip Kelly sometime afternoon.
I will follow with comments from Thurmond a little later.
By the way, they just handed out the Pac-10 preseason media poll and, surprise, USC is No. 1 with rival UCLA No. 7. California is second and Oregon No. 3.
Walter Thurmond: “I’m just happy to be the position I’m at. God gave me the ability. I really can’t stress enough how hard it takes to be the position I’m in. It takes hard work, and you just have to have love for the game.”
