Will be interesting to see what O does with their defense next year.

I'd be jacked up about the prospects on offense with MM coming back, and you know that Oregon will get role players in the skill position. Y'all need some sumo wrestlers on offensive line, I reckon, but I still think that Oregon's chances of getting into the final four are pretty good.

That's all true, but like I said... too many cities, too much money.

P.S., don't count on the weather and other factors to always be perfect....

Someone mentioned USC as QB U.

Not actually.

Stanford has the most QBs ever drafted with 12.

Ohio St 11
USC 11
Florida St 10
Washington 10
Brigham Young 9
Purdue 9
Nebraska 8
Ariz St 8
Tennessee 7
Michigan 7
Cal 7
Penn St 7
UCLA 7
Miami 7

Others to mention I never thought would have so many ---

San Diego St 8
Maryland 8
Virginia 7
Boston College 6
Utah St 6
US Davis 6

Under hit. It's amazing how the total was close. Lucky for me I had the UNDER.

at worst they'd have light rains, and never colder than 50s on a cold spell....

I do understand the other cities vying for it, but those could be the play in games. It wont happen, but if any venue could, seems like the games there are always great.

Auburn had a solid year. Personally, I think they took advantage of a weaker conference, with Alabama and LSU having sent a ton of starters to the NFL over the past two years, but college football is college football - they coulda' said the same thing after the 2010 campaign, when they lost Nick Fairley and Cam Newton.

A post-script to this: Big Boy football still reigns supreme over the gimmickry of the pistol and read-option - at least for another year. The irony is that Florida St. played big boy ball and Auburn played gimmick ball.

Next year oughtta be way awesome. Imagine if Michigan St. and Alabama had been in this thing.
I thin best I saw on both sides of line are Bama ;LSU towards mid season ;auburn and FSU. Best explosive offense A&M but totally lacking a SEC defense. Manziel still amazing through out just like last year.

In the Pac 12 Oregon, UCLA should be great with possibilities from Stanford and USC

and lucky for me I took FLS, it killed me, i am a huge SEC supporter, but we have a family pool. I knew a lot of the family would take Auburn, so I decided to go with FLS. We also picked total points in case of a tie. Well there was a tie, I was the closest to the final score (not over or under in our case) and I just won $125.00. The sad thing, it is the first time I have won in the 25 plus years we have had the pool.
