A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

The National Championship

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on January 10, 2011

It would be tough for me to be more excited about a college football game that doesn’t have Stanford playing in it. The line has moved to Auburn -2 (it was -3 for most of the last month) and the over/under has dipped to 73 (after hovering around 74.5). I have NO IDEA what’s gonna go down tonight. My SEC bias tells me that Auburn is going to beat Oregon fairly easily and I just don’t think it’s going to be a hugely offensive game (at least not over 100 pts as I heard the Yahoo guy predict yesterday). I’m looking forward to watching the whole thing unfold. I’ll say Auburn 41 Oregon 31 (with Ore scoring a last min meaningless td to make the score look closer than it really was)……

    I think your analysis is dead on, I have it 45-38 with Oregon scoring that late td to tighten it…

    Auburn 45-41. If Auburn wins, I win the office bowl pool. Go Tigers!

    44-31 Oregon . . .

    Tigers wear down in the end . . .

    Biggy I’ll take some of that action from ya. I’ll put my money on Oregon and take the points. if you’re so confident Auburn is going to run away with it this should be a no brainer for you. How much you good for?

    On another subject, has anyone noticed the Associated Press has been including playoff wins/loss to the NFL 2010 season win/loss numbers? For example after Seattle beat New Orleans, they said Seattle was 8-9 and New Orleans was 11-6. They did that with all the teams. Is this a new thing or have I just never noticed before?

    • delmardennis said, on January 10, 2011 at 11:15 am

      No, they’ve been doing that for as long as I can remember. Seattle still not bowl eligible at 8-9.

    I’ve got plenty riding on this, bird dawg. I started 12 parlays in Reno and 11 of them are still alive heading into this final gm. I’m giving 2.5.— quite nervous about the outcome but I covered on Oregon– had too

    You couldn’t find a Raquel Aurilia pic for #35? I am depressed.

    Just to be a little different, I’ll say it’s gonna be a relatively “low” scoring affair. 30-25 Quackers.

    Schulman just put up an article on Pablo’s progress. Apparently he’s lost some weight, is working out. But, the story is an example of what POs me about Schulman. Lazy ass reporting. How did Aurelia see him at a Phoenix mall– you mean they just bumped into each other by accident? Why is he working out with Dan O’Brien? I thought he was supposedly working out with some big, famous training group — or is O’Brien part of that group? Why is Panda apparently paying his own way for the training while he’s still under Giants control? Are the Giants or their trainers monitoring anything or participating in any way? If not, why the fuk not? Is he just training for weight loss and muscle strength, or is he doing baseball skills, too? If these local scribes are going to report something once in a blue moon, dig a little for some damn information…

      Franklty, I think the less written about Pablo and his weight the better. He needs to be left alone. He’ll either get it done or he won’t. And that seems to be the tact the G’s are taking.

    Surgery 1-21.
    Auburn by 14.

  10. edward415 said, on January 10, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    I’m with Auburn, too
    And best wishes on the 21st

    I think Auburn wins comfortably, but would love to see Oregon pull it off.

  12. Kevin said, on January 10, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    That was an INT

    • xootsuit said, on January 10, 2011 at 6:36 pm

      no it wasn’t he was bobbling the ball until after he got upended, then he came down beyond the sideline

  13. Kevin said, on January 10, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    So much for high scoring offenses

  14. Billy said, on January 10, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Dang that was a sweet play. go ducks! -and what a conversion to boot.

  15. Rough Trade said, on January 10, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    That 2 pt conversion was good news if you gave 2.5.

  16. twinfan said, on January 10, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    Well , it’s a crime for the game to be decided on a total fluke..

  17. snarkk said, on January 10, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Pretty much an even game. I wouldn’t say Auburn was far better than Oregon. Time ran out, and Oregon was down when it ran out. There’s your national championship…

    • snarkk said, on January 10, 2011 at 9:26 pm

      Auburn wins by a field goal at the very end. THAT confirms the SEC is a cut above the rest of the country? Bulldust…

  18. Nipper said, on January 10, 2011 at 11:19 pm

    The South has risen again. Even playing Dixie. Yes the SEC is consistent winning champs for five years running. I tip my cap.

  19. xootsuit said, on January 11, 2011 at 6:23 am

    Both teams looked like thug gangs, very talented thug gangs. Both quarterbacks threw as many bad passes as good ones. But the game was entertaining, in ways I certainly didn’t expect. Congratulations to Oregon: Their program has now acheived a level of excess and corruption formerly reserved for SEC teams and second-rate private universities blessed with too much money (USC, Notre Dame).
