    It would be cool if the Texans were to draft his brother in a few years.

    Excellent idea, plus we'll need a LB to groom behind DeMeco about that time. I hope our scouts are keeping an eye on him.

    That's not a tough decision. The Rose Bowl by a longshot.

    The article goes on to say the Watt family is skipping the Rose Bowl and heading to H-town.

    Well I'm sure their decision makes sense to them, and that's really all that matters... from the outside looking in, knowing that their oldest son will be playing a playoff game next week, I'd go check out the middle son's last game of the season..... in the freakin' Rose Bowl...

    then again, they probably know the State of Texas rules the Rose Bowl anyway (UT twice, TCU once), so they may as well just go to Texas...

    I took a quick look-see at the Badger's roster and the younger brother is only a freshman who's not even listed on the teams DC so he's unlikely to even get on the field and who wants to watch their kid riding the bench for an entire game ? And JJ may have a house in Houston by now, if not a big enough apartment for parents to visit so it's probably also a lot cheaper visit to Houston than LA for his family.

    The Rose Bowl is played on Monday. They have now invented airplanes. There are direct flights to LA from both Houston airports. Heck with the two hour time difference you can see the Texans game, hang with JJ after the game for an hour and still be in LA in time for dinner. Book it as a round trip to be back in Houston for the playoffs on the 7th or 8th. And hopefully the 22nd...

    Isn't JJs Dad a Fireman or something like that, so unless the ole man wants to sponge off of his NFL-son that's a lot of money for somebody like him to cough up to fly hisself and wife all over the place in that short-period of
    time ?

    Easily the Texans. You don't really root for the player in college. Its all about the school and its pride. The Rose bowl is all about atmosphere and is a whole weekend full of festivities.

    Besides... they already went last year.
