    Well, it is getting paid to play. The other kids are paying for their educations. At least some of them.

    Might as well get this started; assuming the top 3 BCS teams win out, which team deserves to play KSt for the championship, Oregon or Notre Dame? :evil

    I'm uncomfortable with the word "deserves", but I would vote for Nike. Pac 12 Champ vs Big 12 (-2) Champ is good match this year.

    For the media spectacle....Notre Dame. What a story it would be. There is still some ball to be played and anything can and will happen. Even though there are some wagon hoppers, there were very, very, very few that did not expect Alabama to win out. And certainly not to lose to A&M. Nobody in the BCS running can get complacent or deserve anything yet. That is what makes college football so interesting. Even if I can't fully comprehend the computer formula fabrication.

    Oregon, obviously. ND is squeaking by, and robbed Stanford, so they don't get the nod from me.

    for anyone interested in a bit of humor, here's the latest hot topic in the usc - ucla rivalry:

    Trojans agree to UCLA's request that their drum major not plant the sword at midfield before the pregame show Saturday. But some fans won't let it go.

    link: http://www.latimes.com/sports/college/usc/la-sp-plaschke-ucla-usc-sword-20121115,0,7007753.column

    personally, I agree with the opinion piece. I think it is taunting and typical of sc arrogance. what a bs "tradition."

    that said, I'm a bruin so I probably can't be impartial.

    I wasn't aware of this USC thing. I wouldn't allow an opponent to do that on my field.

    FSU has a similar tradition...BUT..they only do it home. And only against UF does he get of the horse first. Pretty good stuff for a clown college.

    Do it on your own field. If you do it on the road, expect the teams to meet at the 50 for a pregame brawl. UF and UGA usually end up doing this before a game these days anyways, but no one knows who's field they are really playing on, so it is ok. :lol3

    exactly. the last thing I need on my home field is some dipshit in mandles sticking a sword in my team's logo.
