NCAA BCS Championship Thread - Auburn V Florida St (-10) 8:30pm EST ESPN TV. Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., on Monday, Jan. 6, at 8:30 p.m. ET.
Temperatures in the upper 60s.
I’m on it. Bobby Bowden was just on. Fabulous!
I like both teams. I guess I don’t really have a favorite.
I will say Auburn is the luckiest team I have ever seen. Still they had to be fairly good to take advantage of the luck.
Is this one of those “Not Good Enough to Make the Real Bowl, the ROSE BOWL” bowls?
a very proud Michigan State Spartan fan ;)
TIDE Fan Here,Wife is an Auburn Fan...You’re right Auburn has had a run of luck this season,though I think they’re on their way back.Have to root for AU Tonight.
Winston is overrated. The ACC has had a terrible bowl season. Auburn has played a tough schedule and Florida State will not.
Lack of toughness will mean, Florda St. (much like the previously undefeated number 2 Ohio State Buckeyes) will find out that playing a really good team is a lot different than beating up on a pansy.
This Gator says, “War Damn Eagle!”
“Lack of toughness will mean, Florda St. (much like the previously undefeated number 2 Ohio State Buckeyes) will find out that playing a really good team is a lot different than beating up on a pansy.”
OSU was beaten by Clemson, which had the dog excrement beaten out of it, even after FSU took their foot off the gas in the second half. FSU is the real deal. Check out their margins of victory this season realizing they backed off in all of those games.
Auburn is in for a gang-rape.
(Not an FSU fan here.)
I know what you mean. I have a Sister who is an FSU grad and a Brother-in-Law who is an Auburn grad. I have a bunch who are Florida alums including one who attended way back in the early 1900s.
Me, I am a Troy grad.
The ACC was the underdog in every bowl but two, counting this one. FSU is now favored by -10.5 in this game.
+1. May Auburn win, but I fear not...
I am for AU in this one but it seems the team I am for finds a way to lose.
Here is a stat for you,
Except for MSU, OSU played 5 bowl teams. All of them lost except for one where two of them played each other.
OSU is a great example of team beating a bunch of pansies and then when they play a real football team, they fold like a cheap suit.
If you don’t play quality competition during the season, you will fail when you play a real football team.
I hear lots of pundits say that FSU hasn’t “beaten anybody.”
I saw that Clemson game, after I had seen Clemson beat a ranked (at the time) Georgia team a couple of weeks earlier. Clemson is a very good team, and they beat a good Buckeye squad in the Orange Bowl.
And FSU crushed them. And they beat a pretty good Duke team that just lost a wild one with Texas A&M and Johnny Football.
I do give Auburn a shot in this one, but they’re they only team in the country I’d even give a shot to.
At least if Auburn wins, we can still boast more titles than FSU (3 to 2).
What’s an “Auburn?”
Your analysis is spot on.
“If you don’t have at least five flat screen TVs and a couple of iPads positioned throughout your house, you might need them to take in the full ESPN experience of the BCS National Championship game Monday.
Otherwise, how else are we supposed to fully drown ourselves in the BCS Megacast coming full force into every crevice of our personal dwelling?
ESPN will go into its own extended spread offense when it experiments with a new multi-channel saturation of the Florida State-Auburn title game from Rose Bowl. Maybe it’ll be standard operating procedure for the network in years to come. But consider yourself one of the trained monkeys asked to participate in this clinical trial involving a half-dozen TV and online platforms all amped up for a retina-challenged simultaneous presentation.”
Alabama’s loss to Oklahoma says SEC isn’t awesome
Baylor’s loss to Central Florida says Big 12 isn’t awesome
Ohio State’s loss to Clemson says ACC is good.
Florida State easy victory over Florida, LSU’s ok win over Florida, and Auburn’s ok win over LSU all say that Auburn would also have had an easy victory over Florida.
It’s an evenly matched game with the edge to Florida State.
FSU by one score.
Is this one of those Not Good Enough to Make the Real Bowl, the ROSE BOWL bowls?
Yeah, congrats on that BCS Championship that was at stake in the Rose Bowl! Oh, wait...
Roll Noles Roll.....just saying....
Have to watch with the sound turned way down, unfortunately. That war chant gets to me quickly.
As the hit song from last goes with this title, Auburn simply “got lucky”. Best wishes to both teams.
I will not be surprised if FS wins it, because of its very motavational quarterback.
It does look more that the ACC is starting to look very good and showing it can be more than a “b-ball” conference.
Even from the brand new AAC, UCF showed that a team from that conference can win.
Editing: hit song from last year.
That’s mighty big of you. I’m a big Gus fan from Arkansas.
Not many have outcoached Alabama but that last play was coached.
Next year look for the college football to begin the journey to resemble over the course of time what they have in college basketball in March, a bracket system.
War Eagle. No idea who will win. It is going to be a bare knuckle affair regardless. AU FSU games always are.
Extremely cold. -99 °F, Wind: 0.00 mph/SW

Please, Saying thst the SEC was overrated this year is like saying that Chris Christie is a little overweight. Alabama got exposed by an OU team that did not have one of it’s better years.
Auburn is in this game because Saban got greedy. FSU stops the running game of Auburn and this game will end like the rest of FSU’s games this season. In a blowout.
In light of Clemson’s victory over OSU the other night, it really brings FSU’s season into a clearer light.
To recap, FSU went into Memorial stadium with Clemson ranked #3 in the nation. Final score 51-14, FSU.
Clemson scored it’s second touchdown with 13 seconds left in the game.
The biggest problem for Auburn tonight is that they will not be playing Notre Dame.(Wonder who got that SEC/BCS payoff money this year?)
Hoka Hey! Go ‘Noles!
Series AU 13 FSU 4 Tied 1. Means nothing but a little history.
Oh lordy. I will leave that alone:)
Few Videos for the AU faithful. Most of these people didn’t see but were wonderful watches.
Best Montage of Bama game I found... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6FyxnS6qX8
Here is another gem of a video that I missed earlier (Georgia game)... I will name it ... TAKE IT EASY ON YOUR ELDERS... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxTL39KoDuQ
This one is a sweet one... A little girl is playing w/ her girly toys in her bedroom and dad is watching the game in another room. She is making a little video for her friends and happens to record (audio) of her dad in the other room. Cracked me up.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWecniY6JQE
Anyone know a reliable source for watching this game free online? I know ESPN is streaming it, but you need to be a cable TV customer of theirs to be able to access it.

A Sooner is a land thief or dirt burglar.
My dear daddy always said it was a dog that would just as soon crap in the house as he had the yard.
War Tide-Rollin’ Eagle!
In that case, you are now for FSU. Trust me on this one.
Only the finest little village on the plains.
I thought maybe it came from Viking raids and razing whole villages.... All Burn...
