To be fair, a one loss auburn team didnt jump an undefeated Oregon or Ohio State to make the game...

Technically correct is the best kind of correct

So then the bets invalid!!!

I hope he gave him tickets in the nosebleed section, who are we kidding, no auburn fan that calls into sports radio makes enough to afford a trip to Cali.

Go Semenholes!!!!

Goddamn it I hate ESPN so much this time of year. I cut the cord, and I'll be damned if I'm getting cable again just to watch the BCS. Greedy sons-a-b*tches.

I get the hate but its not gonna change so unless you start your own network you can quit biatching or get a internet plan that gets watch ESPN.

Auburn's not playing in the Rose Bowl.  The Rose Bowl is for pasty 50-year-olds who remember their fathers and grandfathers reminiscing about the days when black folks couldn't play and Ohio State was relevant.

I hated BSPN until I saw Fox Sports.

I'll take Herbie and Dirty Ol' Musberger over those clowns any day.

When did Auburn get demoted to the Rose Bowl?

I get some of the hate but most just hate it because they feel its giving too much credit to the SEC and not enough to other conferences. I can see why but there is a reason since they put the most talent in the NFL.

More importantly there have been two days of 3 games and no CFB thread!

The other option would be to learn how to use the internet. The FIRST website I found to watch an entire ROW of SPORTS was a .EU link. Install Adblock before you try putting it together though.

Nick Nostril: When did Auburn get demoted to the Rose Bowl?


While stanford plays sparty in the rose bowl, the bcs championship game is being played in the same stadium in pasadena on a later date, sometimes referred to as the rose bowl.

We get that but nobody wants to play in the rose bowl...and nobody calls it that either, its called the NCG.

The last time the Rose Bowl was actually relevant.

I love the comments there... rants about Obama lol

It sounded to me like if Mr. Finebaum really had wanted to make things right, he would have been the caller's buddy-date for the game.

I like the sister-cousin f*cker who edited the Wiki page for that game.

Right? It's not like anyone was talking about Ohio State this year...

Paul Finebaum is the hackiest hack who ever hacked.

IIRC on Gameday he said some stupid shiat about how he voted Louisville ahead of UCF AFTER UCF beat Louisville.  It's as if the game on the field didn't matter and Louisville was 'better'.  fark Paul Finebaum.

The fact that Paul Finebaum has any credibility is why college football can't have a playoff, he's the PR agent for the bowls, the bowl system and the BCS.

He needs to be bombarded with ridicule.

Well when they played a team with an actual defense it proved they weren't relevant and when Stanford spanks MSU it will cement that fact.

That's fair.  It depends on who we're talking about though.  The two SEC guys on Game Day -- Pollack and Finebaum -- are miles apart.  I don't mind Pollack at all, since he at least understands the game.  Finebaum doesn't know anything more than his idiot callers, and his sole purpose on Game Day appears to be to say stupid things that allow the rest of them to mock him.

They were.  Mostly in trying to figure out how badly OSU would get blown out by whichever other team they played in the BCSCG.  Alas, OSU was such a colossal fraud that it made Sparty's offense look competent.

It's funny that you'd mention the "black people couldn't play" thing since part of the Big 10/Pac-8 being the conferences involved is because both conferences were pro-integration.
