Looks like people in Oregon can stop quacking about a BCS snub since they couldn't even handle a weak Oklahoma squad.
Imagine what Ohio St, Notre Dame, Georgia or Penn St would have done to them.

Well, it could just be another classic BCS-snubbed team not getting up for the game (though it was close). Either way, it reflects poorly on Oregon.

Oregon had one loss in the regular season. Texas and USC went undefeated.

There is no snub here. It actually worked out this year, for a change.

i think the USC-Texas game is over by half time with USC winning.

I hope I'm wrong 'cause it would be nice to actually have a nice, tight, exciting game... but I think i'm gonna be right.

The perceived Oregon snub was not for the title game, but for one of the at large BCS bids which went to Ohio State and Notre Dame (the other 6 BCS bids go to conference champs from ACC, Big East, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 10 and SEC).
Oregon had 1 loss, and it was to #1 USC and OSU and ND had 2 losses each.
The payout per school for a BCS game is $14-17 Million, Oregon's payout for the Holiday Bowl is somewhere in the $2-2.5 Million range.

Yes once again its all about the $$

Anyone watching the Sun Bowl? Its very entertaining. UCLA was down 22 to 0 in the 1st Q. Has now come back to tie in the 2nd Q.

Its the number 111 defense vs the 117 defense.

I saw some of the Sun Bowl, but then I had to leave the 'party', and get on the road again

how'd it turn out?

Any more historic plays happen in the closing seconds? (and fail? )

well, i'm not crying right now, but i am scratching my head over the sugar bowl...my beloved dawgs lost. that first quarter will forever haunt the Bulldog Nation. why it took 28 points for us to finally make adjustments is beyond me!
still, that was a GREAT game (if any of you saw it past the first quarter--final score was 38-35)...
well, for a team that was expected to only finish THIRD in the eastern division of the SEC this year---(we finished FIRST in the east, then won the SEC title, and went to a BCS bowl game)---i'd say "We done GOOD"
can't wait for the last 2 bowl games.....
and God Bless College Football!!!!!!!!

Man, I wanted to see that game, U2doggie, but I didn't catch it. I missed it.

I think I wouldhave liked to see UG win, though.


God Bless CF, though, I agree
(even if the bcs and other things are weird, it still deserves a blessing)

Sun Bowl had quite the interesting finish, UCLA returned not 1, but 2 onside kicks for TD's (same player too) thwarting Northwestern's comeback attempt twice.


Is it me or was Brent Musburger the world's biggest Ohio St. cheerleader during the Fiesta Bowl yesterday?

Both games were horrible. Iowa State did their usual choke and poor play calling.

Iowa did their normal, start very slow, come on during the middle, and finish just short. Although the calls in that game were horrible. That offside on the onside kick was the wrong call to make.
