Have you ever been to a college football bowl game pep rally? It’s the most proper of propaganda for the institution of higher learning; and football. Everyone should attend at least one in their lives- but not your alma mater. A school you have no connection to will give you proper perspective and objectivity.
Or go to an Oregon Ducks BCS Bowl pep rally, because they have the hottest cheerleaders on the planet. That works too! Plenty of pics after the jump.
By the way, Oregon alums Joey Harrington (sorry to bring that name up Detroit Lions fans) and ESPN SportsCenter’s Neil Everett rocked the mic.
Some photos are from the official Rose Bowl pep rally at Santa Monica Pier. Others are from the Rose Bowl Kickoff Luncheon outside the Rose Bowl Stadium.

He helped the Oregon Ducks get their first Rose Bowl win in 95 years. Before the big win yesterday, De’Anthony Thomas wasn’t known to many college football fans outside the Pacific Northwest.
Just a freshman, he’s still rather obscure, but that will certainly change next year. Thomas name will be household on a national level, as he’ll make tons of highlight reel plays next...
Is the third time a charm for Chip Kelly and his Oregon Ducks? Will the 2012 Rose Bowl end differently than last year’s national title game and the 2010 Rose Bowl?
The knock on Kelly’s Ducks is that if you get an entire month to prepare for them, then stopping the 3rd in the nation in total yards Quack Attack isn’t so difficult.
However, the Ducks are 6 point favorites in this...
