The Corner

Dissing Cal

I want to be very clear: I don’t care about this subject at all. I know nothing about it and desire to read no email or anything else on it. But in the interests of those who do, here’s a note from a reader:

Jonah,

Nobody in the Corner seems to give a twit that a supreme act of injustice has denied Cal its rightful berth in the Rose Bowl. It is outrageous that the #4 team the nation should be relegated to playing the #23 team . . . in the Holiday Bowl? Is that a ceramic something with trees and Santa Clauses on it that you put out at this time of year to hold the nuts? Besides, anyone with any sense of tradition at all knows the Rose Bowl is a Pac 10 POSSESSION, not to be invaded by interlopers. Come on; the BCS has to be an Islamist plot.

Now I freely acknowledge that I am probably one of the very few Cal grads regularly in the Corner, but we need some support here!
