Why I’m Picking Oregon

Tonight it finally ends.  I like the Ducks and here’s why:

PAC12 – I grew up in Los Angeles area and have always been a PAC12 fan.  Now with CU heading to the PAC12 next year my allegiance grows stronger.

SEC attitude – The SEC has long claimed its superiority over any other football conference and the east coast bias trumpets the same tune.  I wouldn’t be happier if a team from Eugene, Oregon pulled off the upset.

Oregon has never won a national championship in football.

Cam Newton – He is without a doubt the best player in college football this year, but the controversy surrounding the selling of his services by his father to the highest bidder is a joke.  Worse is the NCAA punishment (or lack thereof) handed down.  This is the same body who stripped Reggie Bush of his Heisman this year for a similar act.

Ugly uniforms – Trend setters, perhaps, but my gosh.

Justice would be served to the NCAA and its BCS charade for a school from an outpost on the left coast that wears ugly uniforms with wings to win the national championship over a player anointed (with help of the NCAA) as this year’s king of college football.

Go Ducks!!
