On th question of choosing not to play in a bowl game:

Why should  a young soon to be paid professional athlete play in a stupid bowl game, from which several
Dozen people make enough money to support themselves for the entire year,  and not protect his own financial future?

And keep in mind that most of these supposedly educational institutions did not provide the quality of education in exchange for these young scholar-athletes services as they promised they would and certainly did not help keep them on track for a real degree.

I would hope more athletes decide to not play in these games that benefit others more than they will ever benefit the athletes.

What if they do?
Under that reasoning, why play any game once you decide to go pro? Hell, sit out that 3rd year.

Why indeed, if the athlete thinks that is in his best interest.  In a free market a person can decide when he wants to go pro.  In what other sport is a 18 year-old phenomenon restricted from playing pro ball?
Baseball? Basketball? Tennis, Soccer? Track & Field?   The college folks have forgotten the values they are supposedly teaching their students.  Not to mention, not paying taxes on all the revenue they take in.
(See NYT last Sunday).

Athletes can decide their own future without worrying what the "fans " in the Nut gallery think.

Was that an answer? If so to what?

The first part of his statement is correct. The greatest Rose Bowl of.al.was.the 2014 Rose Bowl, followed by the 1988 Rose Bowl, and the 1954 and 1956 Rose Bowls.
