    Penn State suspends WR Saeed Blacknail & LB Manny Bowen for violating team rules. This totally sucks.

    Are you in SoCal? Ever been to the Rose Bowl?

    Been wondering if anyone has any experience going to the game without a ticket. If there's tailgating during the game or if everything clears out once the game starts. Don't know if it makes any sense to go down without a ticket though.

    If you are near it why not go for the tailgating and fun. Maybe get lucky and land a ticket.

    yeah, this is clearly the marquee matchup outside of OSU-Clemson....Washington losing more luster by the minute with Colorado getting bitch slapped. I hope Bama drops 100 on them

    guess my intel was right, unfortunately....although, I was worried it may be more than them for a bit. Looks like Blacknall still running second team in practice, Bowen no idea, so guessing his offense may have been a bit worse

    Any idea what they did? Some big loses before a big game.

    No idea, Bowen hurts more, we are loaded at WR, but Bowen very athletic LB and can play all over the field.

    I'm in NY it's been a long time since I've gone tothe rose bowl l. I hate to say it but the stadium is nicer than the collisium. Especially as far as tailgating. Did you try stub hub for tickets you may catch someone dropping their price last minute.

    It was good to see Colorado have a winning season. It's been a long time. But I wasn't that impressed with them. You could also say SC beat Washington. Penn State beat Ohio State. And Clemson lost to Pitt. I'm liking the Rose Bowl match up more than all of them.

    That's kind of what I was thinking, but I don't know if I'd be able to watch or at least listen to the game there or if I would have to find someplace else to do that once the game starts if I didn't get in.

    I know the Alumni Association out here is having a viewing party at a sports bar, but it's not right around the corner from the stadium for sure. Would probably just have to head straight there, which is something I'm considering also.

    Keeping an eye on stub hub, cheapest tickets were around $250 a piece a couple of weeks ago. Up to $300 a piece now.

    I would assume so, have to be others without tickets that would stay set up during the game right?

    Ive used stubhub a lot. Its tricky it fluctuates.Its almost like running the risk on the jacked up prices. While trying to catch tickets dropping last minute. So they don't get stuck with the tickets.Its a lot of timing and luck. This game may be rough tho. Its not like previous years. This game is giving the play off games a run for their money.They may match the other games. We need play off expansion

    There are plenty of TV's set up at the tailgaiting on the golf course for sure. Whether they will still be set up after the game actually starts I can't say, I always have gone in. I would guess so though.

    It just makes sense that some would bring a group of fans in their RV, and only so many go in. I would imagine the remaining folks would stay around and watch the game there.

    I may add and i'm sure you will agree. You have to be careful with some USC fans. As much as I don't like it. Some of them can be hostile and pretty bad
