Recalling hijinks of the past
and a bad jinx of the present
T HAS BEEN called the Rose Bowl and it has been called The Grand-
daddy of Them All.
And over the years, it most certainly has been a grand 'ole game. Dating
back to its inception in 1902, it has been a magnificent event from which
many a tale has oft been repeated.
There was the first contest, in which Michigan's famous "point-a-minute"
team shellacked a hapless Stanford squad, 49-0.
In 1929, California's Roy Riegels returned an interception the wrong way,
forever enshrining his name in infamy.
In 1939, Duke went into the annual classic without having been scored upon
all season. With 40 seconds to go in the game against USC, the Blue Devils led,
3-0. But in a storybook finish, the Trojans' fourth-string quarterback Doyle
Nave completed a 19-yard touchdown pass to Al Krueger, giving USC a 7-3
And the list of classics goes on and on ...
All of which makes this year's run for the roses in both the Big Ten and
Pac Ten so confoundingly befuddling. Most seasons, squads from the two
conferences battle tooth and nail in order to achieve a spot in this New
Year's Day extravaganza chock full of tradition and personality.
But this year has been shockingly different. This year, the Rose Bowl has
been "The Game Nobody Wanted To Play In."
This game of renowned fame has been something of an enigma in the year
1982. The mere thought of a holiday in Pasadena has sent team after team
tumbling to defeat.
Early in November, the "Rose Bowl Jinx" seized its first unsuspecting
victim of the year. Illinois proudly flaunted a 5-2 record in conference play
and was still doing some California dreamin' when 6-0 Michigan rolled into
Michigan left town 7-0, and the Fighting Illini's New Year's Day hopes had
seemingly been thrown away. Er, make that run away.
With 27 seconds remaining in the closely contested ball game, the Illini had
the ball on fourth down at the Michigan two-yard line, trailing 16-10. Illinois'
offense came up to the line of scrimmage and lined up in a running for-
mation. Surely the Illini were trying to fool Michigan into thinking they'd run
the ball, when in fact they planned to pass. After all, Illinois had one of the
most dynamic passing games in the nation. Furthermore, the Wolverine
defense's strength was against the run; its Achilles' heel being the pass.
But no, Illinois tailback Dwight Beverly took a handoff from quarterback
Tony Eason and was promptly buried by a bevy of defenders.
The Illini had lost one for the Rose Bowl.
In the Pac Ten, the contenders were faring no better, quickly turning into
Two weeks after the Michigan-Illinois heart-stopper, Washington
travelled to the lair of arch-rival Washington State needing a victory to clin-
ch a berth in the Rose Bowl. Going into the game, the fifth-ranked Huskies
were 18-point favorites.
If ever there was a mismatch of monumental proportions, this was it. The
Huskies had talent and incentive on their side.
But alas, Washington was unprepared for but one opponent-the 1982 Rose
Bowl jinx. And so, the Huskies fell flat on their face, among other things,
Washington had lost one for the Rose Bowl.
Next to burn its fingers on Rose Bowl hopes, in the Pac Ten, was Arizona
State. The Sun Devils needed a conquest over Arizona if they were to sun-
bathe in Pasadena. ASU wasn't a prohibitive favorite, as Washington had
been, but it was believed to be the better squad.
And under routine circumstances, the Sun Devils probably would have
shown this very fact. But these were not normal times. The Rose Bowl jinx
was running roughshod over everything in its path, and that's exactly where
Arizona State found itself. Arizona and the jinx rolled over a Sun Devil
squad that never knew what hit it, 28-18.
Arizona State had lost one for the Rose Bowl.
By this time, Rose Bowl officials were becoming a bit perplexed. A quick
check of the schedule, however, gave rise to a deep sigh of relief. UCLA,
which was now atop the Pac-Ten standings, had already completed its season.
There was no way it could screw up as others had so pathetically done. For
the time being, the Bruins were immune from the jinx.
It was only fair, of course. UCLA had already suffered enough from a bout
with the jinx. On November 6, the Bruins played against Washington in a
game that looked as though it would have great bearing on the run for the
roses. The Huskies triumphed, 10-7. UCLA had lost one for the Rose Bowl,
but thanks to Arizona State and Washington, a holiday in Pasadena was
All three teams were struck by the jinx. The difference was, UCLA sur-
vived it while Washington and Arizona State proved to be fatalities.
The Rose Bowl's other combatant, Michigan, did not go unscathed by the
jinx, either. Head coach Bo Schembechler was too stubborn to let the jinx get in
his team's way against Purdue and the Wolverines clinched a Rose Bowl bid
by beating the Boilermakers, 52-21. But the following week, Michigan was
almost apologetic for having cheated the jinx, and handed Ohio State six
turnovers and the game, 24-14.
It was a year to remember. It was the year nobody wanted to go to the
Michigan defensive back Jerry Burgei reaches over
receiver Cormac Carney to deflect a Tom Ramsey p,
31-27 win earlier this season. Carney's face in the
shows his disgust at the turn of events the play took.
