    I cared about all the big bowl games too. I never understood why the Rose Bowl was treated as greater than the other major bowls. ACC has/had the Orange Bowl and the Gator Bowl before it's decline. Peach Bowl moved up to take the Gator Bowl's spot.

    This is better stated. It's not that I didn't care about the Rose Bowl. It's that it didn't have any additional importance compared to the other big bowl games. It seems like none of the other bowl games matter that much anymore but I don't know if that's because of the current system or because I don't give enough fucks as an adult to care about the results of all those other games like I did when all I had was college football and grade school.

    The Rose Bowl gained its reputation over time because it was the oldest bowl and had the highest TV audience for years due to its time slot and the huge alumni bases of the schools.

    From 1965-1979, the game also decided the national title in 10 of 15 seasons because the PAC 8 and Big Ten either had the No. 1 team or an unbeaten champ in the game.

    In the 1980’s, it never had that. No team higher than No. 4 even played the game the whole decade. In the 90’s, it was rendered irrelevant by the BCS.

    The BCS didn’t start until 1998. Basically what I’m seeing here is that the Rose Bowl only means something to people 45+? And if it hasn’t really meant anything since 1979 on a national scale, does that mean it was really made irrelevant by the current system? Hard to argue that.

    Sugar bowl was always what we cared about.

    Interest in the Rose bowl depended on the matchup just like any other bowl game.

    I think conference championships mattered way more before the BCS without a doubt.

    Even as a fan of a Big 10 school, I never understood why people insisted about it being the biggest. Why the hell would a UF or Miami fan give a shit about that game? Don’t get me wrong, even as a kid, the win against ASU was unreal. Still, it was really only real for two conferences.

    That game had bigger repercussions outside Pac/Big Ten. If ASU pulls it out then Florida likely doesn't win their first MNC. Maybe Florida doesn't care as much about the Sugar Bowl the following day - not likely since it was a rematch against FSU - and FSU wins the game and another Natty.

    That three year period where Big Ten and Pac Ten refused to join the "Alliance" prevented Michigan/Nebraska and FSU/ASU NC games.

    Regardless I agree with your point. I don't really care about any bowl game's prestige - only if it's a good or interesting matchup.

    It is irrelevant. No dispute there.

    Since the BCS started, Ohio State has finished AP top-5 in the final poll 13 times and won or shared the Big Ten 11 times but this year’s game was only our second Rose Bowl since 1998.

    Seems it was rendered irrelevant by the incompetence of Bo Schembechler.

    Wasn’t the only thing by him that game. That’s a #1 pick in the NFL draft.
