Oregon has shown in the past several years, despite it's offensive power, it can't match up with the SEC's best or even 2nd best.
Stanford is built more like an SEC team, and so once again, Oregon can't cut it.
At least this way, we can watch Florida St. go up against the SEC for the National ...

Why the hell do some places serve salsa with the consistency of frickin water? The crap drips all over the place trying to transfer the chip from the bowl to the mouth.
