Oregon getting a rematch against LSU in the national title game if Okie State loses? Absolutely not, says Paul Finebaum. The Ducks have had their chances and whiffed twice.
Um, twice, Paul? I thought Oregon only has one loss this season.
So tell me why some now think Oregon, which has had two shots against the SEC (remember the Auburn loss in January), deserves another opportunity, assuming the BCS meltdown scenario plays out.
So a loss to last season’s Auburn team combined with a loss to this year’s LSU team disqualifies them from consideration. And that’s different from Alabama’s resume exactly how?
Of course, I’m kidding that he’s even engaged in a rational discussion here. SI.com ought to use this photo on the header of his e-magazine page and be done with the pretense that he possesses a shred of objectivity.
(By the way, since we’re on the topic of pundit logic and the title game, note that Herbstreit is poised to modify the Herbstreit Doctrine… again. You’ve got to admire a man who keeps an open mind like that.)
