Ohio State won its eighth Rose Bowl today.

While the Granddaddy has ceded its importance in the playoff era, Pasadena will always be an historically important and revered figure in college football history.

Speaking of history, all of Michigan's greatest moments took place during the standard definition or black and white era, and well - this will likely ruffle some Baby Boomers' feathers:
