Bruce Snyder passed away yesterday. He won at Cal, Arizona State, and Utah State, but we'll remember him for coaching in the 1997 Rose Bowl, one of the better games we've ever seen. The neurochemical magic wrought by a great game erases any memories of winners or losers; at the end, there's simply a spectacle exploding before the eyes, and in the end, for one rare instance, the outcome is largely irrelevant. That game was one of those, and for that we're grateful.

Bruce Snyder, R.I.P.
