Abstract: K. Grove, L. Verdiani, B. Wilking and W. Ziller gave the first examples of cohomogeneity one manifolds which do not carry invariant metrics with non-negative sectional curvatures. In this paper we generalize their results to a larger family. We also classify all class one representations for a pair $ (G,H)$ with $ G/H$ a sphere, which are used to construct the examples.
