BCS Championship Game: Auburn vs. Oregon, 5.30p

So here we go, nine days after New Year's Day, with the game that America wanted to see (sorry TCU, I know your undefeated record has somewhat of a claim to this, but the truth of the matter is that no one wanted to see you play for the title). Will this game prove to be the offensive explosion that most pundits predict? Get out your Tostitos...and while you're keeping score, keep track of here to see which lucky SoSG reader takes home the goods!

Making tonight's game slightly more interesting for a few of us, the final standings for SoSG Bowl Mania will be finalized. If Auburn wins, the Professor will have yet another trophy completing the sweep of the '10-'11 SoSG Fantasy season. If the Ducks prevail, I will end the Dittmore Dynasty (said with the Oregon mascot's Daffy Duck lisp and spittle).

Josh S. said...

Tostitos, among the worst chips in the world, gets TWO bowls?

Steve Sax said...

what's the other one?

Jason, what's Bowl Mania? Do you ahve a link?

Spank said...

An injury on the kick-off! YESSS

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

So far this game sucks.

Spank said...

Defensive stops by both teams on their first possessions. Who Knew?

Spank said...

It is almost "Both offenses are nervous" time.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Karina might just win.

Spank said...

It is starting to look that way.

Eric Karros said...

Wow. Yup, Karina's 11 is looking pretty good right now.

And it doesn't even have Clooney or Pitt.

Jason said...

Bowl Mania was another ESPN game that spun off of SoSG FF...

Josh S. said...

Isn't it still the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl too?

Oh, and I think my 55 refers to the number of picks in the game.

Eric Karros said...

BTW, here on the East Coast the game just ended. So I know the final score.

But I won't ruin it.

Spank said...

Tostitoes Fiesta Bowl it is.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Woo! Only 64 more points and I win!

(cries)

Spank said...

Now we're rollin'

Spank said...

51 more points and it's all mine.

Josh S. said...

Karina still alive. Though, it's a bit nuts to think there will be fewer than 14 more points scored tonight.

Eric Karros said...

Quad's got a healthy 9-point range to work with. If there was a real-time accuscore on this contest, his stock would be rising especially after that 4th down stop.

Spank said...

16-11 Auburn

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ah, there it is. The classic "Touchdown-no, wait, he's brought down" Musburger call.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Ducks!

QuadSevens said...

Hmmm. I've got a fighting chance here!

Spank said...

I think almost everyone is out of this contest already.

Fred's Brim said...

Has a hurry-up-style offense ever won a big game?

Eric Karros said...

Has it come down to Karina's Eleven vs Quad's Double Triples?

Spank said...

WTF did they do to that field? Everyone is slipping.I thought that shit was state of the art?

Fred's Brim said...

@Spank - they said they replaced the entire field after the Tostitos Tostito Bowl

Dusty Baker said...

Where the fuck is everyone? *kicks trash can over*

Dusty Baker said...

What did they replace the turf with, guacamole?

Spank said...

They should have used a layer of queso dip on the field to help the traction.

Fred's Brim said...

Newton is sick
he's been loopy since that hit

Dusty Baker said...

I don't think Newton knows where he is now. And that's scary!

Fred's Brim said...

They'll deport him if he's not careful!

Dusty Baker said...

I love it when the commentators tell me when it's a huge third down. Because otherwise I would have no idea.

Dusty Baker said...

Or shoot him.

Spank said...

Oregon has changed their uniforms look more times this year than I changed names in Fantasy Football.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh shit, now the commentators tell me that time is a factor for the Ducks.

I wonder if the score is a factor, too?

Fernie V said...

Punt and then here comes the 8 pointer from the ducks to send it to o.t. Then we are all back in it

Dusty Baker said...

Looks like Auburn may be going into the prevent offense.

Spank said...

OOOOOOOOH!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Might one say that that was a big fumble?

Dusty Baker said...

Maybe they'll go to OT and MRLASC will win the points prediction contest.

Spank said...

Oh Snap!

Los Patos are going to score?

Spank said...

Pass the MOFO,MOFO's

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, are time outs important?

Dusty Baker said...

Los Patos or Los Putos? What'll it be?

Spank said...

That was a big third down!

Fernie V said...

Yeah OT baby

Dusty Baker said...

That was a big #2 I just took, too.

Josh S. said...

QUACKSEVENS!

Eric Karros said...

Snatched out of Karina's hands and into Quad's...for the moment.

Dusty Baker said...

He wasn't down! Wow!

Josh S. said...

A TD would snatch it from Q7.

Dusty Baker said...

Karros said snatch.

QuadSevens said...

I'm looking for a game winning field goal now! Come on kickers!

Fernie V said...

That sucks freakin Jerry Rice play

It's gotta be the shoes.

Eric Karros said...

It just might happen, Quad.

Eric Karros said...

or not.

Dusty Baker said...

Not. SEC up in dis bish!

Spank said...

FUCK!

Eric Karros said...

or maybe?

QuadSevens said...

D'oh!

Dusty Baker said...

Looks like a knee may have been down. But was ball crossing plane at same time?

Is this what might be called a big review?

Eric Karros said...

Quad and rnblaw are the only ones who care about this replay call...

Dusty Baker said...

I care, Karros. I care.

I care so much it hurts.

Spank said...

Either way Auburn scores a TD.Fuck it.Give it to em

Fernie V said...

South Florida Kicker does anyone remember wide left

Dusty Baker said...

Newton will take it in.

Spank said...

Oh Shit! I did not see the time.

Dusty Baker said...

FG attempt...interesting. I'd try running it in once.

QuadSevens said...

Kick it!!!

Eric Karros said...

...and DB.

Looks like Chizik gets to decide who wins this contest.

Dusty Baker said...

I would not attempt to throw it into the waiting arms of an opposing player. #RyanMallett

Spank said...

Laces In! Laces In!

Eric Karros said...

run it/center it

Dusty Baker said...

I don't trust these coaches not to outsmart themselves.

Eric Karros said...

Perfect time for a flea-flicker. Nobody's expecting it.

Eric Karros said...

^ I made that comment before reading DB's.

Dusty Baker said...

SEC UP IN DIS BISH!!!

QuadSevens said...

Woohoo!

Spank said...

Booooooooooooooo!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

el montanero said...

Eric Karros said...

Congrats Quad.

So I'm guessing it's #1 Auburn, #2 TCU, #3 Oregon, #4 Stanford, #5 Ohio State

Steve Sax said...

Quadsevens, you are a winner! Shoot us your snail mail address please

el montanero said...

congrats, quad!

Eric Karros said...

Hey, Quadsevens was a winner before this contest.

Eric Karros said...

Congrats Cam Newton and Auburn.

What is the average number of amazing sports redemption stories per year?

Dusty Baker said...

Medic! El Montanero was knofed in the robs!

Dusty Baker said...

Little Rock, Arkansas' own Michael Dyer.

Damn I wish he were a Hog.

Fred's Brim said...

aint nobody wipin they ass in Auburn tonight

Dusty Baker said...

Just like any other night in Auburn, FB.

Josh S. said...

I couldn't get a measly 7 points more from each of these scoring powerhouses?

Spank said...

I am going to create a Spank App for the IPhone.

rbnlaw said...

Knofed in the robs. Fucked in the armpit.

Goddamn review officials.

Spank said...

99!

Dusty Baker said...

A Spank app! I love it.

Dusty Baker said...

What would a Spank app do? Steel Reserve ads along bottom scroll...random drunken jibberish texted to you at 2:45am?

I LIKE!

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, wait, did you mean THAT kind of Spank app?

Fred's Brim said...

The most amazing thing about this game? ESPN went from the start of Oregon's second-to-last possession (the one before Newton's fumble) to the on-field interview with Newton before they went to commercial. If my DVR is right, they went 42 minutes uninterrupted.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

It was interrupted by Muffburger's shameless "For all the Tostitos" plug.

Spank said...

That and and the other, DB.

Fred's Brim said...

hmm maybe not 42 - I was a few minutes begind. But it's at least 30 minutes

Fred's Brim said...

yeah that was pretty shitty. Brent knows when to step up in the big games

Big Daddy DeShields said...

Great end to the game. But Cam Newton and his Dad both should have been booted from the NCAA long ago.

Spank said...

Tru Dat,BDD.

Fred's Brim said...

gnite all

Dusty Baker said...

True, Big Daddy.

Dusty Baker said...

Where'd everyone go?

*bites the turnbuckle; rips out stuffing*

Fernie V said...

Spank app there's a app for that
That fletch pic still makes me giggle

Big Daddy DeShields said...

@DB YES!!
Always room for a George the Animal Steele reference.

Now the day is complete.

Dusty Baker said...

Thought you'd like that, Big Daddy.
