Auburn over Oregon in Tonight's BCS Title Game: My Top 10 Observer-ations

Cam can. And will.
A year ago I was correctly predicting Alabama over Texas in college football's national championship game. In tonight's Oregon-Auburn clash my heart says Ducks but my head says no way the Tigers don't prevail.

Why?

10. Oregon usually wins with its speed, but no conference is faster and more athletic than the SEC.

9. Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas is just a guy, a system quarterback who piles up prodigious numbers. See Kliff Kingsbury.

8. Auburn has won four games by three points or fewer; all but one of Oregon's wins were by 11+ points. In a close game, advantage War Eagle.

7. The Southeastern Conference is 6-0 in BCS title games including winning the last four. And we saw how good it is this season in the bowls, with Alabama, LSU and Florida winning and Arkansas almost beating Ohio State.

6. Ndamukong Suh, meet Nick Fairley.

5. Former Texas defensive coordinator/Auburn head coach Gene Chizik is 8-0 all-time in bowls.

4. Don't really have an answer for how the Ducks blasted Stanford, 52-31. Because we all saw how good Stanford looked. Maybe I'll point to Auburn's rally from down 24-0 at Alabama. Because we all saw how good Alabama looked.

3. Auburn will be able to run over Oregon's defense at will. The Tigers, anchored by All-American tackle Lee Ziemba, outweigh the Ducks by 50 pounds per man. Fifty!

2. The football gods won't let a team with Oregon's ridiculous and inconsistent uniforms win a title. What color is Oregon these days? Yellow? Green? Black? Pewter? I hear they are wearing neon yellow socks tonight. Auburn is traditional. Auburn is better.

1. When in doubt go with the best player. Auburn's Cam Newton is a bigger, stronger, faster, better version of Vince Young. The Heisman Trophy winner has played in this game nine of the last 11 years, and Newton may just be the best of them all.

Fuck Cam Newton. The fact that there hasn't a been a fucking revolt over the fact that he's even playing shows how few people give a shit anymore. ESPN and the NCAA said "Fuck off. There's nothing to see here." And everyone said "Meh. Ok."

Seeing as how my beloved Horn's have chosen not to participate in this years post season, I'm rooting for Auburn. Cam does remind of the greatest college qb in history, except for the stealing computers and having his daddy try to score some samolians for him. OU (not Zerou, but OU) is gonna have their hands full tonight, and thus the lesson to learn for all the kiddoes out there will be: Sign with UF, cheat on several tests and steal a laptop, get kicked out of UF, transfer to Brenham cc, rebuild your rep as a dominant playmaker, tell your Pops to get some scratch for taking your talents to where ever pays the best, Win a championship and become a top ten pick in the NFL...winner, winner ...chicken dinner (that's not raycess, just a saying) Good to see Kergo around, salute.. brutha.

Nobody cares about this game. Real smart having your made up championship game 2 months after the season ends. By the way, aren't you the same guy that guaranteed the Cowboys would turn it around and win the Super Bowl. You have no sports credibility schtick stealer.

I'd rather watch a high school JV basketball tournament where the participants in the championship game are not voted in.

F the BCS and their sponsors.

Cam Newton doesn't remind me at all of Tim Tebow, Roger Staubach, Steve Davis, Jack Mildren, Andrew Luck, et.al...Actually VY reminds me of Pryor at OSU. Tall, athletic, throws like an eighth grader, IQ about equal to their shoe size.
