    Why would anyone be bitter about that kind of program? I'm bitter that ESPN and the NCAA sold out for the cash in this game and the Sugar Bowl.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Not always. Vegas was playing Oregon tonight. They got bailed out.

    I'm not a gambler so forgive me, but does that mean that nobody won or lost? If so then doesn't that hurt Vegas? Don't they want to beat someone?

    Sometimes Vegas takes a side. On this game, the opening line was Auburn -3. 70% of the money was on Auburn, and the line actually slipped to a pick em by kickoff. The Sagarin predictor had Oregon as a 7 point favorite, so my guess is that that the Vegas oddsmakers saw Oregon as the better team as well but were willing to let Auburn bettors give 3 points for tons of money for the last month.

    As it turns out, they came out with a push.

    This is why you just can't be a know-it-all on events yet to be determined in the internet age. Your words will haunt you. Be it in opinion pieces,blogs, or message boards. From my favorite college football writer.

    The NCAA doesn't officially award a title so they really have nothing to take away.

    USCw didn't have theirs taken away by the BCS or AP so I think this one is going to stand.
    Go Gators!

    And really, I fail to see how Oregon and the Pac 10 have anything to apologize for. They took Auburn's best shot, left points on the field, and still only lost by a trey.

    Congrats to Aubie and their fans. Don't know how you can root for someone like Cam Newton, but a BCS title is a BCS title, I suppose.
