Ten Thoughts on the BS Championship Game

  1. No, that wasn't a typo.
  2. In 2008, Oklahoma entered the game hailed for their fast pace offense. They ran 70 plays compared to Florida's 74, and lost the game 24-14.
  3. In 2010, Oregon's fast break offense ran 74 plays to Auburn's 85.
  4. You know you're old realize former NFL QB Jeff Blake has a son playing WR for Auburn as a sophomore. And Blake left East Carolina in 1992, four years after I used up my undergraduate eligibility at Oklahoma.
  5. Oregon's fast paced offense finished the year averaging 78.84 plays per game. They would have been fourth in the Big 12, behind Oklahoma (86.5), Texas Tech (81.1) and Texas A&M (79.5). Not so fast, my friend.
  6. Cam Newton will return to Auburn for his senior year. It's an uncapped year in the SEC in 2011, and there's too much uncertainty in the NFL labor agreement.
  7. I'm wondering if Cecil tithed the money paid to him by Auburn.
  8. Nick Dyer is a heckuva back.
  9. Great shirt I found today while following tweets of Frosh WR Kenny Stills
  10. My theory on why the S-E-C keeps winning championship games. They are more physical up front than other conferences, and have speed to boot. Other conferences have focused on the speed, but don't have the depth in the lines to handle the physical strength throughout the game.
