This ends tonight. The BCS, at long last, is making way for a playoff, which will begin next season. Hopefully, the SEC's streak of seven titles ends with it as Florida State enters the game as an 10-point favorite.

ESPN is giving this game the full monty treatment, with the "BCS Megacast" presentation, which will feature personalities, guest coaches, players and celebrities for coverage on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNEWS, ESPN3, ESPN Classic and ESPN Goal Line among other channels.

One more night to chirp with you boys. 

PittBuckeye's picture

Just got a snapchat from my fat ginger friend (in a mirror) waving his shirt around over his head yelling waited 14 years baby woooooo. And here's to another 14 before I see something that disturbing ever again.

popeurban's picture

Maybe I should cheer for auburn because Gus malzan wears a sweater vest?

Knarcisi's picture

At least Tress's was 90s vintage. 

popeurban's picture

Love tres, I was really hoping those browns rumors were true.  Just to see him on a sideline again.

TheShookster's picture

Even though the last 2 games have shown me that OSU wouldn't have won this game if they made it, I still can't watch without having a sinking feeling in my stomach.

He ain't even stretch doe!!

HighBallAce's picture

Why does every asshole under the sun have to add an extra note to the ending of the Star Spangled Banner?.......lol

Knarcisi's picture

100x better than the Rose Bowl last week.

Not gonna lie, after hoping to see Ohio State in this game all year it pains me to watch this game.

popeurban's picture

It might be for the best we are not?

Knarcisi's picture

It pained me to watch Friday's game. 

popeurban's picture

Ditto, it really seemed like our offense regressed.  Or maybe our competition was that bad all year?

Knarcisi's picture

FSU should be favored, but 10 is a little steep, don't you think?

osu07asu10's picture

What coverage is on the Ocho?

CJDPHoS Board of Directors // Best friends with Homey Hache

The 0 is silent.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Yep, they have what, 4 channels of coverage?

"2014 National Champions...deal with it!!!"

DNARCO's picture

Oh, this game is on tonight...?  Meh.
Laterz BCS. 

 
 

PittBuckeye's picture

But that worked against Bama...

Knarcisi's picture

Herman calling the plays. 

popeurban's picture

Wow, timeout already?

PittBuckeye's picture

They should go with the wr screen, I hear that's always good for 20 yards

popeurban's picture

Too soon, but UV for making me laugh and cry at the same time.

Knarcisi's picture

Not tipped, can't catch. 

HighBallAce's picture

Talk about a bad pass....ouch

PittBuckeye's picture

Philly would have ran that back

Knarcisi's picture

Damn, Weinke looks bad. 

popeurban's picture

Weinke looking rough

You can't spell chump without UM's picture

Does Andy Dalton play for Auburn now?

Brady Hoke ate my comment

Knarcisi's picture

Thank goodness we didn't play these guys. 

PittBuckeye's picture

SEC defense being SEC defense.

Seattle Linga's picture

Any guess on what little nicky sabin is doing tonight

PittBuckeye's picture

He was on set all day, so probably at the game now.

HighBallAce's picture

shit it's cold!!!

Herbie: master wordsmith

KCAlum's picture

Damn man, when did Chris Wienke turn 50?  Was 1999 THAT long ago?

PittBuckeye's picture

I had to check to see how old he was.

popeurban's picture

In 99 he was like 38 as a starting qb at FSU.

popeurban's picture

Surprised auburn is playing off of the wr with all of that speed?

Findog5's picture

Why can't we have a real Defensive Coordinator?  

Raleigh Buckeye

PittBuckeye's picture

We do, we even had 2 all year.

PittBuckeye's picture

I'd take Benjamin on the Brownies too.

Knarcisi's picture

I'd take him one on one with Armani Reeves. 

PittBuckeye's picture

I'd take Jimbo Fishers kid in that scenario too, I meant against good coverage though.

popeurban's picture

Isn't their kicker a freshman?  And won the groza

BGBOY's picture

Yep. He is from my old high school.

You can tune a piano but you can't tuna fish.

Bradyhokescholesterol's picture

I'm pulling for the refs in this game.

TheShookster's picture

Looking forward to ESPN spinning this as Auburn losing as opposed to Florida State winning (if that happens, please god let it.)

He ain't even stretch doe!!

OSU069's picture

Good stop for Auburn. FSU get a stop now. I don't want to hear about this SEC crap.

PittBuckeye's picture

I really hope FSU Notre Dame's these guys.

bucks4nuts's picture

espn 2 is gold right now

popeurban's picture

What in the name of broadcasting are they doing?

PittBuckeye's picture

I think Matt Millen's involved, so nothing good.

popeurban's picture

He is a hurting buckaroo.

PittBuckeye's picture

Every single time a guy gets tackled is there a rule that says someone has to jump up and celebrate?

Defiance J's picture

Yes - considering the state of defenses now a days. 

Mikefletcher24's picture

Espn 2 -Is hoke on there? I haven't heard any grunts or ughs

popeurban's picture

D line is angry.

PittBuckeye's picture

Already muted the tv so I don't have to hear FSU fans anymore.

popeurban's picture

Cheering for auburn?

PittBuckeye's picture

Not a bit, just don't like feeling like there's a group of drunk Indian's chanting all around my house.

OSU069's picture

Damn nice catch

PittBuckeye's picture

Seems like Florida States plan to stop the zone read is to tackle everyone.

Defiance J's picture

Assignment football. 

Knarcisi's picture

Amen.  That's coached, by the way. 

PittBuckeye's picture

Where can we buy that?

Defiance J's picture

I remember it from high school. Haven't seen it in a while. Lol

popeurban's picture

Haha, great plan, it is working.

Knarcisi's picture

Yep, seems like they have 13 defenders on the field. Why did it seem like we had 9 on Fri. 

popeurban's picture

flordia state is basically an SEC team

PittBuckeye's picture

In the pre-game coverage they were saying Fisher built FSU to be like an SEC team. I almost threw up.

popeurban's picture

Lol, I did not watch.  For the record I am not an ESPN hater, but I thought they might say something like that.

BassDropper's picture

Turn on ESPNU for a complete breakdown of each play. They have an all 22 camera and have Kevin Sumlin, Chris Speilman along with others breaking down the game. Pretty sweet feature.

DIRECTIONER

popeurban's picture

Do you mean news?  U is a basketball game here.

BassDropper's picture

yep. my bad

DIRECTIONER

PittBuckeye's picture

Took an hour to blow that play dead. Are they trying to get that rb killed?

Knarcisi's picture

Where is this multi channel view when Beth Mowins calls a game?

PittBuckeye's picture

Name should be considered a swear word.

OSU069's picture

That was a horrible punt 

Mute's picture

To be fair FSU is not really used to punting this year

Arizona_Buckeye's picture

FSU WR is humongous - 6'5... 

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

OSUStu's picture

It is pretty funny to hear them try to say "Vizio BCS National Championship game on ESPN" that quickly so that they can get to commercial.

PittBuckeye's picture

This defense isn't perfect, but I can see how it crushed Clemson. Doesn't look to hard.

OSUStu's picture

If you have corners, you can stop Clemson.

Knarcisi's picture

Wow, turning to play the ball ...

popeurban's picture

Great pass coverage.

Mute's picture

Every time I watch another team correctly defend a pass a small piece of my soul dies

PittBuckeye's picture

Wait a cb who gets his head around and gets his hands up? That's legal?

Knarcisi's picture

Combs needs to run that drill with the CBs 100 fucking times a day til the earth ends. 

popeurban's picture

well, guess this game is over

HighBallAce's picture

If I have to hear that damn Katey Perry song one more time, I'm gonna slap my mamma!

Knarcisi's picture

Katy Perry is hot. 

HighBallAce's picture

She IS hot though!....lol

popeurban's picture

At least Paul finebaum is not on any of these channels right now...

Knarcisi's picture

He hates Malzahn. Wonder how his shit burger tastes?

popeurban's picture

Does he really?  Or you read him that way?  I pretty much tune out when he is on.

Murph32's picture

Is it pay dirt? Or paint dirt?

I just got my dad punched over a can of soup!

What would u compare espn 2 to?

"To The House"

popeurban's picture

Going to a hair salon or a bar just for nagging women.

Knarcisi's picture

I can't stand to keep it on for more than 7 seconds. 

popeurban's picture

I think it bothers me more than the fox dancing robot.

Defiance J's picture

Upvote. Hate that stupid thing.

DNARCO's picture

^ almost nothing bothers me more than the fox dancing robot...
except for this one...he's cool.

Shaky start for FSU. 

EddieG27's picture

over under 1000 sacks the SEC has had in the past 7 nati title games

Mute's picture

Auburn taking a page from our book with a punting penalty!

BassDropper's picture

Guys, maybe it's time we recognize that the SEC IS the greatest thing since sliced bread.

armybuckinva's picture

Espn Classic is the way to go tonight. It's just the game with in game and stadium noise. No announcers. 

Knarcisi's picture

I would but don't have it in HD ...

jamesrbrown322's picture

Looks like a completely different Auburn D.

Toolface4's picture

Good tackling by both teams so far

jamesrbrown322's picture

Fisher flat out getting outcoached. This is ridiculous.

PittBuckeye's picture

Not that I can say it isn't this, I hear this all the time. Sometimes guys just get out played.

jamesrbrown322's picture

Looks like poor preparation really. Busted, wide open receivers. Hard to believe Wazzu and Miss State gave Auburn a game, and LSU beat them by 2 TDs!!!

popeurban's picture

Yeah, I used to think chizick got a raw deal, but malzahn is legit.

PittBuckeye's picture

To whoever said Finebaum isn't on he's with Jamele Hill on the Deuce. Being annoying.

Knarcisi's picture

Annoyed because Auburn is looking good. 

popeurban's picture

I was hoping FSUs first drive would be the trend.  Auburn looks angry now.

Knarcisi's picture

Anyone sick of this Taco Bell commercial yet?

Mute's picture

Are Florida State's starters even capable of playing a full game when they haven't all season?
I think Boston College was the only time they played 4 quarters, maybe Miami too but that game was well in hand

BassDropper's picture

Just switched to ESPN 2 right before the break....do they really have cameras on  PAAAAAAAWWWWL, Reece Davis, and a guy who was on American Idol as they they just sit there and watch the game?
Really?

DIRECTIONER

popeurban's picture

Haha, that is russillo.

Knarcisi's picture

In truly thought it was Taylor Hicks, too. 

teddyballgame's picture

Hope our players and coaches are watching this...
 
this is what good defense looks like

Mute's picture

Auburn's secondary is terrible and yet compared to OSU's they look like the best in the country

BenedictineBuck's picture

By far the worst thing about this season and into the bowl season is that god damn Eminem song they play at every commercial cut away. My ears are bleeding!!!

Because we couldn't go for three!!!

Indy_Buck87's picture

Yo frosty tips any DB who is allowed to grab. Hold and push the WR he is covering can hold up pretty well.
