Pete Carroll wants to go to the Rose Bowl

Emphasis bolded by me.

It's the job of a reporter, of course, to challenge everything, remaining skeptical when everyone else is buying into all the propaganda and hoopla. But I've got to say -- when I hear Pete Carroll talk, I now consider it the gospel.

So the other day when he mentioned for the umpteenth time that USC's No. 1 goal every year is to make it to the Rose Bowl and he doesn't even give a thought to the Bowl Championship Series title game in Glendale, Ariz., I can't imagine him not telling the truth.

In fact I've heard him repeatedly talk about how much the Rose Bowl means to him, how quickly he dismisses any BCS talk, while steering the conversation back to the Rose Bowl and what it means for USC to play in the granddaddy of them all.

I mentioned this Monday to Karl Dorrell, and I've got to tell you, UCLA's coach could not have been any more agreeable when I suggested, "Then let's give Pete what he really wants, and send him to the Rose Bowl."

"I'd love it," said Dorrell, and I think that's pretty darn thoughtful of the guy.

"If that happens, I'll hug you," Dorrell added, which makes me wonder what Carroll might do if Dorrell and I can make his dream come true and send the Trojans to the Rose Bowl.

Let's give him and the Ttrojans what they want by beating $C this Saturday.

GO BRUINS.
