Jay Jacobs, please.

I know breathless lobbying about the BCS title game is a college tradition, but this is a little over the top, methinks.

“It’s already happened in 2004, and it would be a disservice to the nation if we got left out,” Jacobs said.

“A disservice to the nation”… weak sauce, bro.

Besides, he’s a little premature with the rhetoric, isn’t he?  With the way Auburn’s season has gone, just wait another week.  We’re probably about to witness Auburn winning the SECCG on another fluke play and, hell, Duke upsetting FSU in the ACC championship.  It’s been that kind of year.

    How amusing that Mizzou gets to ATL before A@M after all the JFF hype and such. And damn, what if Spurrier had beat them Dawgs? Nice to have been a fly in his ointment.

  2. charlottedawg

    Interesting how nobody is talking about Mizzou. Those tigers are 11-1 as well.

    It would be a disservice to the nation, an affront to the Constitution, blasphemy against all that is holy and would hurt the middle class not to mention throw poor, innocent children out into the street.

    • Dawgaholic

      Really would be BS if Mizzou is not in the game if they win. OSU has played no one that is decent all year and Mizzou has several quality wins and their lone loss was in double overtime to a top ten team.

      The Barn on the other hand has won by smoke and mirrors and got beaten soundly by LSU.

    I just wanna know when our lucky season gets to roll around…

    • Ron

      Maybe writing should start openly breaking rules and recruit ex-cons?

    • TennesseeDawg

      Our reward is in the next life

      • BCDawg97

        You are a better man than I. I have a family, job, home, etc that I am grateful for and well aware of the truly important things in life. I don’t get near as depressed over losses that I used to. Would my life be unfullfilled without another NC? No, but it sure is right below my children and wife on the bucket list…

      The thing that worries hell out of me is that we have already had that lucky season.

      • Really? Which season would that be?

        • Scorpio Jones, III

          You know, that one…that 1980 thing that BC mentions down below…two miracles…maybe three in that one.

          • Ah. Thought you might be referring to something more recent.

              • I don’t know. That’s why I asked him the question.

                • Mayor of Dawgtown

                  OK, OK. Since everybody else is dancing all around it I’ll say it–Georgia’s lucky season was….2012. That is the year we were supposed to win it all. Destined after the Sean CALLOUT–played like champs the rest of the season. We had Bama dead to rights in the SECCG and once again, like always, Bobo (he’s really the one who did it) and CMR blow the game at the end. Their strategy of not spiking the ball would have been fine if CMR hadn’t frittered away the TOs earlier. But with no TOs left, you simply cannot do what they did. Our all-world QB was signalling for a spike and they over-ruled him-and look what happened. 2012 was UGA’s year. It was pissed away by the same kind of end of game screw-ups that we have all come to expect from CMR and Bobo. Lose one for the Gipper! That’s Richt’s motto. UGA will never win another SEC Championship or a National Championship as long as CMR is HC. As long as he stays–Dawgnation, get used to disappointment.

              By “magical season” I assumed, correctly or incorrectly, he was talking about a national championship…we have several “coulda-woulda-shoulda-seaons but to me, no magic since 80.

              It’s hard, sometimes, being a Dawg, but this morning I am really glad we ain’t Bama…think of how much more special it will be when we get another.

              • Ohhhh..I see.. Yeah…feeling so giddy this morning….I’m gonna call ’em over there and rub it in ….very tactfully of course. You know….Bless your hearts…cannot even imagine how you must feel.

      • Bulldog Joe

        Yes. We were only nineteen points from being 3-9 this season.

      • BCDawg97

        I assume 1980?

  5. hunkerdowndawg

    I hope all of Auburn continue thinking like this and worrying about getting into the MNC game. I am pretty sure Michael Sam, James Franklin and Gordon Beckam-BenJarvus-Green are focusd on winning in Atlanta. I will be pulling hard for Mizzou and Sparty next Saturday.

  6. Scorpio Jones, III

    It seems to me a truly weird thing that Saban, for all his attention to detail, winds up with a kicker who can’t make a field goal against Auburn.

    Guess kicking is not part of the process.

  7. Vindex

    Of course we could expect no less from the head of the SEC’s premier rogue program. But if Mizzou beats Auburn and the urbster’s buck nuts lose to as party, I can almost hear the same thing coming out of Saban. There must really be something different in the water on the other side of the Chattahochee. Strange place, enveloped in a state of delusional entitlement…

    • Vindex

      “….lose to Sparty…”….I don’t know about this “self-correcting” spell-check here…..

    • You have no idea how right you are! 22 years in ALABAMA….It’s like being in another Galaxy.

      • PHDawg

        CBS Sports ran an article this week about how the Iron Bowl is the greatest rivalry in the country. It basically came down to the fact that Alabama ain’t got anything else to hang its hat on besides the Bammers and the Barn.

  8. FisheriesDawg

    Y’all can correct me if I’m wrong, but I seem to recall Auburn getting manhandled by LSU. If that’s accurate, this would be nothing like 2004.

    • Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner.

      But again, with the roll Auburn’s on, I fully expect FSU or OSU to lose their conference title game.

      • Scorpio Jones, III

        Late last night I consulted the Oracle…did not get a clear reading on Awbun….it is possible The Miracle of the Dead Trees used it all up, but we shall see.

        You gotta pull for Sparty just cause it is the mind of Urbanmeyer.

        • Scorpio Jones, III

          Seriously, you think Bama and LSU are more capable of manhandling Awbun than Mizzou?

          I don’t really have a feel for that.

      • Macallanlover

        One of those (FSU) would be a monumental upset, the other game looks like a near toss-up to me. Can’t decide if I want Ohio to win and get humiliated in the BCS game, or humiliated in some other bowl. Hate that I will have to vote them in the Top 10 in the Mumme Poll this week, I really don’t think they belong that high so I may not. How can they struggle with Michigan in a game they need to look impressive in?

        Rivalry week really had some teeth this year. All year the favorites were taking care of business but there were several upsets, or near upsets, the past three days. I don’t recall a year where the rivalry cliché of “throw out the records” was appropriate in so many games.

  9. Scorpio Jones, III

    Just so we are clear here, I would rather see Awbun in the big game than the mind of Urbanmeyer….ya know? Go Sparty.

  10. SouthGaDawg

    Joke of the day – What’s worse than Alabama winning the Iron Bowl? Auburn winning the Iron Bowl. Folks, I’ll be here all week…

  11. Will

    As a true fan of the SEC, and a Georgia partisan, I can honestly say that I’ll be thrilled to see Auburn sitting out on the bleachers while Ohio State and Florida State play. It will, at a minimum, confirm that the world is a fair and rational place for me to know that the Wareagles have used up all their lucky just getting to the conversation. Additionally, 2002 Mark Richt approves.
