PASADENA, Calif. (GMC) -- The football landscape has changed dramatically in the last decade, and although it was wonderful to see the Stanford Cardinal playing in the Orange Bowl two years ago and in the Fiesta Bowl last year, for those of us who are above a certain age and remember a time when the Rose Bowl was the only thing that mattered for Pac-10 schools, Tuesday afternoon was special. It was more than just a BCS bowl game, after all. It was the Granddaddy. It was single greatest game in the history of the sport. It was the Rose Bowl.
