It took a record-setting rookie from USC tearing out Penn State’s beating heart on national television, but I think bowl games might be good again.
Hey, want to see the ring the Stanford football players just received for winning the 2016 Rose Bowl?
The notoriously “edgy” Stanford marching band performed a skit full of dumb hick stereotypes during halftime of Stanford’s 45-16 thwacking of Iowa in the Rose Bowl. Despite the fact that the skit wasn’t particularly good, funny, or unexpected, everybody lost their goddamn minds. Iowa fans got mad, Rose Bowl officials …
The Stanford Marching Band—a performatively quirky group of college musicians currently banned from road games for “sexual hazing”—is continuing its truly remarkable run of pissing everyone off. They got to go to the Rose Bowl because it was a neutral site game, and they commemorated their trip by taking a bunch of…
Get a load of this Stanford shithead who won’t shut up while ESPN tries to interview Christian McCaffrey, who basically singlehandedly won the Rose Bowl. This clown is relentless. He’s also now become a meme:
Christian McCaffrey proved himself to be college football’s most versatile player this season, and the Stanford star continued his reign by catching a Kevin Hogan pass and finding the end zone 75 yards away on the Rose Bowl’s first play. Here’s how it sounded on Russian television:
Wow. This could not have gone much better for pretty much most of the country.
Michigan State wins the Rose Bowl and Mark Dantonio gets a new contract that makes him one of the "three highest paid coaches in the Big 10"? There are worse days to get caught picking your nose on television.
While tonight's Gold Cup match at the Rose Bowl between Panama and Mexico didn't produce large-scale riots like the recent exhibition in Las Vegas between Liga MX sides Club America and Chivas del Guadalajara, the end result was the same: Idiots and garbage on the field.
Rose Bowl officials—apparently ignorant to various contractual obligations involving ESPN's access to the winning football coach—pulled away Stanford coach David Shaw moments after his team defeated Wisconsin, and interrupted his postgame interview with ESPN's Heather Cox. Cox made every attempt to keep the…
Our weekly college football shame index previews the New Year's Day bowl games.
The custom of calling post-season collegiate contests "bowl" games stems from the granddaddy of them all, the Rose Bowl, so-called for the eponymous bowl-shaped stadium. But our first association with the word "bowl" of course is as a container, most often for food, keys, change, or cereal milk and cigarette ashes and…
Welp, it happened. Kansas State, once thought unbeatable†, loosed the SI-cover-jinx-aided mother of all bedshits Saturday. Call it the revenge of the Southwest* Conference: Texas A&M downs the No. 1 Crimson Tide last week, Baylor (editor's note: LOL) conks the Wildcats this week. This is agonizingly disappointing for…
When last we met, Roger Clemens was the most important defendent, the NBA ended but continued to dominate, and Rick Reilly continued to lift his own material. What would this week bring?
We think this is Wisconsin assistant coach Joe Rudolph pulling a Spaulding in the first quarter of the Rose Bowl; here it is in full forensic-quality slow-mo and zoomed-in just for your enjoyment. [ESPN]
There are three BCS-eligible undefeated teams. Two will play for the national title. The third will play Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl today.
The Badger Herald is pissed off, and taking names. Well, listing names. The names of UW students who snapped up coveted Rose Bowl tickets, and are attempting to scalp them. As strong proponents of public shaming, we stand with you, Badger Herald.
