If it had not been for the earthquake, I had wanted to listen to the Rose Bowl online. Alas, the earthquake severed the the internet in this part of the world and thus, prevented me from listening to the game.

Perhaps, it was a blessing because Michigan lost to USC 32 – 18 in the Granddaddy of Them All:

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — There were no Heismans or national titles up for grabs in this one for Southern California. It was hard to tell, though, given the way Dwayne Jarrett, John David Booty and that suffocating USC defense played.

Jarrett, the sensational USC receiver, caught 11 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns to help the eighth-ranked Trojans finish their season with a statement Monday in a 32-18 Rose Bowl romp over Michigan.

When was the last time Michigan won a bowl game?

I cannot remember.

The NYT describes the Rose Bowl record of the Wolverines and the Trojans:

PASADENA, Jan. 1 — No game in college football’s postseason has more historical resonance than the Rose Bowl. Southern California’s 32-18 victory against Michigan on Monday maintained two long-standing hallmarks of this prestigious event.

No team has won this game more than the Trojans, who raised their Rose Bowl record to 22-9 since their first appearance in 1930. And no team has lost this game more than the Wolverines, who fell to 8-12 since their first trip here in 1902, the first time the game was played.

Bah! I just hope the Buckeyes would screw Florida through and through in the national championship.
