    Anybody looking forward to this tonight?

    Interested to watch Cam Newton from a NFL draft perspective, haven't seen a whole game of his this year.

    I have Auburn to win it.

    Thoughts?

    Any players to watch?

    It's a toughee for me..Auburn's defense isn't that good - Oregon can score damn near at will & run away from you if you let them get too far ahead - but Auburn has the best player on the field....could shape up to be a good 1.

    The only guy of note to watch as far as we're concerned is Nick Fairley, the DT/NT for Auburn. Absolute beast in the SEC & he'll likely be in Oregon's backfield all night.

    If Oregon sticks with their game they can keep it close. If they get off their game cause Newton is scoring at will, it could be a blowout.

    Final Prediction: 41 - 31 Auburn.

    Will be watching QB Cam Newton, DT Nick Fairley, LB Casey Matthews, LB Josh Bynes and DE Brandon Bair.

    My thoughts....

    War FREAKIN Eagle!

    P.S. - My dad sent this to me as soon as Auburn locked up the National Championship.

    Prediction: Auburn wins meaning the SEC takes the National Championship 5 straight seasons (4 different schools). Amazing.

    led by Houston own Darron Thomas the Ducks have a total of 7 kids who played High School Football in Texas, not to mention I grew up in Eugene, its really not hard @ all to pick sides.

    Darron is just amazing young man who doesn't get the media attention, nor does he seek it but after today if Oregon is to make a game out of it he surely will be recognized.

    If anyone want to console or congratulate him here is his facebook page

    Cam Newton would make a fantastic TE.

    Fairley will go well before their pick. He is likely a top 5 with an outside chance of #1.

    I have not watched Auburn play all year, so this'll be the first time I get to see Cam Newton. On the other hand, I've seen what Oregon can do and that game they had against Stanford earlier in the season was a great game. From a neutral perspective I just hope its not a blowout and that it comes down to the wire.

    I'm rooting for Oregon but it's hard not to choose the SEC team as tough as that conference is. Hoping for a good game
