    Oregon. I'm so confident that I have five doubloons riding on it.

    [MENTION=6007]Wheretheheckistottenham?[/MENTION] - 1,000 Doubloons on an Auburn win (Cam Newton will be a factor), fancy a wager?

    Auburn's defensive backs are horrible, I have a feeling this will be the difference. Oregon...

    Oregon solely because I hate the SEC.

    [MENTION=6007]Wheretheheckistottenham?[/MENTION] - just quoting this just in case you decide to edit :302:?

    Guess I'm the only one (so far) who thinks that Auburn could win.

    Would it be worth logging on tomorrow or should I hide for a day should the result go the other way lol?

    Auburn could definitely win but Oregon are being overlooked simply because they're from the Pac-10. My gripe is with the SEC, that's why I'm rooting for Oregon. The commentators in this country refuse to do any logical analysis and basically are picking Auburn because they play in the SEC and they have won the past 4 championships. They way they make it seem is that the SEC was so dominant and steam rolled their way into those games when a lot of things had to happen for them to get there. Take last year, Auburn plays a little better defense and Alabama doesn't get there. In 2007 if everyone didn't collapse LSU never goes into the title game. Also, if Clemson makes a field goal against this years SEC representative they're playing in the Sugar Bowl. Then look at who they beat, I mean who hasn't beaten Ohio State and Oklahoma?

    The "dominant" period from the SEC IMO is a little overrated because they never played the most dominant team outside of the SEC, The USC Fighting Trojans. Partly our fault but also the media never gave the Pac-10 the credit it deserved. So when we would lose to Stanford or Oregon, it would kill how we were perceived nationally. I think now some fans are starting to realize what we were dealing with. Pac-10 teams never played a brilliant OOC schedule but it was competitive in conference. This reason among many others is why we need a playoff. Teams mainly SC typically play their best football come the end of the year but because of one slip up earlier in the year our whole season is ruined. Bullshit.

    I'm totally good for it @HeroesComesandGoes although you might have to jump into the poker room and help with the transfer.

    As for Oregon, I got my degree there when they were living in the bottom of the Pac 10. I can't help but root for them now. Doubly so since they're not a traditional powerhouse. Nothing like having new blood at the top.

    Oregon blew it, again. Well let me rephrase that Darron Thomas blew it, he had a terrible game. If he made better decisions Oregon wins by two touchdowns.

    At least they have the consolation of having this game wiped from the record books when the inevitable investigation starts.

    It was a close game and Auburn did play well with their 2 point conversions and trick plays.

    All in all it was actually a decent game. Better then last year which was decided in the first quarter. The NFL playoffs already has been much more entertaining then this years entire bowl season.

    I agree - Seahawk's win over the Saints was amazing...

    Oregon (as a whole), you never fail to disappoint.

    [MENTION=4008]HeroesComesandGoes[/MENTION], there are some interesting NFL games coming up. Care for the opportunity to double your winnings?

    Well, Auburn were very active spenders in the transfer market last spring, not surprising it paid off for them.

    I predict the following teams to win their next games:

    Steelers, Patriots, Packers, and Seahawks

    Take your pick :302: [MENTION=6007]Wheretheheckistottenham?[/MENTION]

    You picked the way I'd like to see it go! Maybe there's a curling match we could bet on?
