What's up Yardbarkers? This may sound funny coming from a Trojan, but I want Oregon State to beat Oregon this weekend and get to the Rose Bowl. The Rose Bowl is a great, don't get me wrong, but if this senior class goes to the Rose Bowl again it will be the only bowl game they ever experience and I'd like the guys to get the opportunity to experience something different. When we went to the Orange Bowl it was especially exciting because it's a game I've seen on television growing up and for some of us it was a first time going to Florida. And we were doing it together. It was a great bonding experience and we all have lasting memories of that trip. When you go to a different bowl game it's not only exciting to play in a new game, but it's almost like going to a foreign place. The environment is different, you see new people, hear different accents, try new food, see new fashions, everything is different and to experience that as a team is really special. Plus, I would like to join them and experience something new myself and turn it into a mini vacation. The Rose Bowl is an unbelievable game and it's really fun to play in, but I just want these Trojans get a new experience.
