Purple. "It is the color of emperors.
Written by Tom Rinaldi
The shade of the royal.
And today, it storms the game's palace.
In a bowl that's belonged to scarlet & gray, maize & blue, cardinal & gold -- purple enters the picture.
What does a color carry on this day, in this place?
Performance over pedigree.
Ability over lineage.
Confidence over conference.
Today, the Granddaddy welcomes a few new sons dressed for majesty, eager for victory."
It’s a great time to be a Horned Frog. Congratulations on a Perfect Season and being the 2011 Rose Bowl Champions!
