After decades of debate, and the hot mess that was the BCS scoring system, we're finally having an NCAA football championship game! Although this isn't going to be an easy one for us to watch.
The Oregon State/Oregon rivalry goes back to 1894, so it's difficult for this Oregon State Beaver Nation family to ever root for the Oregon Ducks.
When Sweetie was attending OSU, this was the logo for the Beavers:
Then they updated it:
Another update to this current, more streamlined one:
Unfortunately, Benny Beaver won't be at the game tonight. He'll be sitting home watching it like most of the rest of us. I don't know who he'll be rooting for, but we're reluctantly going to be for Oregon. Because 1) we just can't vote against any PAC team and 2) unfortunately, they're deserving off all the accolades. Because they're really, really good.
Still, betting on college football, when emotions run so high, is never a smart thing and Ohio State is definitely under appreciated by the national press. So an upset is certainly possible.
Meanwhile, if you're watching, who will you be rooting for? And if you're not a football fan, may I suggest reading a good book? :)
