People would still find plenty to complain about---they'd say one team had an easier bracket than the other, etc. I think you'd see about the same amount of arguing.

The SEC had proven they are the best the last 5-6 years- not NFL caliber like some of these SEC space monkeys think, but they have the results in the big one.

I think OU has the talent to beat either team- but WTF was that Tech game? I do think they beat OSU because they always beat OSU (that is one loppsided series). Boise State would get worn down and lose IMO (40-17ish). My Ducks...hmm, I think we are looking at next year (for another undefeated run) and if we can continue to pull in talent than the next few years look good. I'd be content with a Rose Bowl victory...I mean, it is the Rose Bowl still.

Lots of football to play and it seems like it just goes so darn fast. Soon, we'll all be sitting around at the end of the bowl slate looking at the calendar..."How long until the 2012 season starts?"
yeah, after seeing the ducks at #8 in the BCS we don't have a chance in heck....Lets just beat Stanford, USC oh, and of course those Dawgs are still waiting.

Tonight cannot come soon enough- Washington! I hate UW! This is the only school I actively root against in everything, even...women's table tennis. I am looking forward to another pounding of the Doogs!

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (November 6, 2011) – The Southeastern Conference Presidents and Chancellors, acting unanimously, announced today that the University of Missouri will join the Southeastern Conference effective July 1, 2012, with competition to begin in all sports for the 2012-13 academic year.

The addition of Missouri will increase SEC membership to 14 institutions. The additions of Texas A&M, announced on September 25, 2011, and Missouri, are the first expansions for the SEC since September of 1991 when the University of South Carolina joined the league. The University of Arkansas joined the SEC in August of 1991. With the addition of Arkansas and South Carolina, the SEC was the first conference to split into divisions and add a conference championship game in 1992.

“The Presidents and Chancellors of the Southeastern Conference are pleased to welcome the University of Missouri to the SEC,” said Dr. Bernie Machen, President of the SEC Presidents and Chancellors and president of the University of Florida. “The University of Missouri is a prestigious academic institution with a strong athletic tradition and a culture similar to our current institutions.”

“The Southeastern Conference is a highly successful, stable, premier athletic conference that offers exciting opportunities for the University of Missouri,” said Chancellor Brady J. Deaton. “In joining the SEC, MU partners with universities distinguished for their academic programs and their emphasis on student success. The SEC will provide our student-athletes with top flight competition and unparalleled visibility. We came to this decision after careful consideration of the long term best interests of our university. We believe the Southeastern Conference is an outstanding home for the Mizzou Tigers, and we take great pride in our association with this distinguished league.”

Missouri, located in Columbia, will also be the fourth institution in the Southeastern Conference to hold membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities, joining University of Florida, Texas A&M University and Vanderbilt University. Missouri has an enrollment of 33,800 students, which would be the fourth largest institution in the SEC, with Florida, Georgia and Texas A&M having a larger student body. There are more than 260,000 “Mizzou” alumni around the world. The State of Missouri borders three SEC states: Tennessee, Kentucky and Arkansas, and they bring an existing rivalry with former conference foe Texas A&M.

I'm glad to hear that a decision has been made, however, it appears there are still some unresolved issues with Mizzou exiting the Big 12 for 2012 due to WVU's problems getting out of the Big East for next year.

Missouri would be better off in the Big10. I don't think the SEC benefits from this, and I don't think Missouri really benefits all that much either. But I guess Missouri might get part of a bigger TV contract with the SEC if it happens, which is probably more than they'd get with the current Big12 or the Big10. Maybe it works for them, too, then.

So after NCSU's win over UNC yesterday, we need 2 wins to be bowl eligible. Though we have 5, I'd feel better getting above the 6 win mark.

I don't know about anyone else, but I would kind of like to see Oklahoma State in the national championship game.

I know Im gonna get hammered for this, and I know now that we don't have a chance in he## to be in the championship, but after watching those two teams yesterday in the "Game of the Century", I think Oregon (or Standford ) could NOW beat LSU. Yep, I know we blew our chance, but we were missing key players...They were also missing a Key Player, but as it turns out, both the QBs are outstanding, and they have gone undefeated with both. Ill go further, I think that Boise St beats Bama, and OK St. Im not ready to give it to them on LSU yet..but I wouldnt rule them out either. Bama, I thought you would kick some butt, but you should reconsider kicking anything all together. GO DUCKS, Next up, LUCK. Honestly, I thought the the Huskies would give the Ducks more of a challenge, being the last game at the Mistake by the Lake.
