you don't work for any of these organizations. You're speculating on things you have no clue about.
No, I don't work for any of these three organizations.
But earlier this year, there were mumblings that the Rose had problems with taking a Marshall. This was when they were renegotiating the BCS contract and conceptualizing the new extra game (piggyback) that will start in 2006.
The Rose's attendance dropped off in the 2003 game when non-Big 10/Pac 10 school Oklahoma played Washington State. In the history of the BCS, 4 of the 6 years, the traditional Big 10/Pac 10 matchup took place. They don't want more than the 2 (2002 and 2003) Rose Bowls to be added to in this respect.
Since Miami, Nebraska, and Oklahoma has played in the Rose Bowl, the Rose, if forced, would definitely prefer a team of much more traditional nature than Boise State. At least a school that is Pac 10-like (Major state flagship university or a major traditional private). Bosie State became a 4-year university in 1969. They are not the flagship university for the state of Idaho. They are a commuter school that was a junior college up until 1969. They are like no team in the Big 10 or the Pac 10.
They have only been a Div. 1-A team since ~1996 or 1997. Michigan wants to play a school like them in the Rose Bowl, ala the Big 10. Jim Delaney, the Big 10 Commissioner was the biggest opponent in letting the non-BCS schools better access into the BCS.
There's enough hints that they would have serious problems with Boise State. The Fiesta may not have as much apprehension though.
