Oregon: We’re Tired of Rose Bowl
Plenty of college football players would be honored to play in the sport’s oldest bowl game. Alas, that doesn’t apply to a few members of this year’s Oregon team.
“I don’t want to play in a Rose Bowl unless I’m playing for a national championship,” WR Josh Huff told reporters on Monday.
RB De’Anthony Thomas shared a similar sentiment, saying, “It’s not a big deal at all. We already won a Rose Bowl, so it feels like, ‘Whatever.’ ” (He later clarified, “It will be a good experience for the guys that haven’t been on this team. It’s a great opportunity for them to experience it and, you know, go out there and have fun.”)
Never mind that the Ducks still have to win two more regular season games and the Pac-12 title game to make it to Pasadena. Or that they could’ve avoided this “disappointment” had they not lost to Stanford on November 7th (a game in which both Huff and Thomas made key mistakes).
Cry us a river, guys.
