    OSU may play USC in the Rose Bowl. This would be an awesome and classic match up. And a great way to lead into our two game series with them (at USC in 08, at OSU in 09).

    I would rather Arizona St beat USC & play in the Rose Bowl while Oregon goes to the title game.

    I could also do a match up against one of the fellow largest U.S. universities; a 1997 rematch. Only time we've been in 20 years.

    Ole Miss will beat LSU. Oregon (#2) and Kansas(#1) win out and are playing in the national championship.

    Kansas is going through Mizzou and OU? I will be cheering for Ole' Miss. Makes me made EVERYONE talking "stuff" about how undeserving undefeated OSU was of #1 while LSU keeps barely winning games.

    Well Ohio State was undeserving obviously.

    I agree that they should have been ranked #1 at the time, but I also believed that by the end of the season, they would not.

    Right, I agree. But as an undefeated team, everyone kept saying LSU was better. Really? One loss, two miracle from God wins? I think OSU (Oregon) deserves #1.

    Like Andre Ware said on ESPN the ONLY reason Ohio State was #1 is because it is a popularity contest. OR, because we were the best undefeated team? I wasn't aware rankings are based on "might lose in the future."

    Back to topic, I knew we were a one loss team (before day 1, I thought at Penn State). I'm happy we have a shot at the Rose Bowl.

    But game #3 may be a tie-breaker. I hate being 1-1 with UT :)

    The Rose Bowl actually getting a Big 10/Pac 10 matchup like they're supposed to?!!?! It seems like every year they get screwed out of that matchup. Or maybe I'm imagining things

    that was tradition.

    Oregon wins the PAC-10, screw the BCS & play in the Rose Bowl vs. the Big 10 champion Ohio State who are gonna crush Michigan this weekend. let Kansas get served LSU then listen for the next year once again how we need a College Football playoff system :cool:
