    Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens, the selection committee chairman, has to be wondering what the benefit was of scheduling Auburn.

    Would the Ducks be in the playoff at 12-1 had they opened the season with a cupcake?
    They would be in if they hadn't lost to Arizona State. Auburn is a quality loss, the Sun Devils aren't.

    Maybe....however...

    Quality losses don't mean shit.... that's the reality....there is little upside and lots of downside in playing a side like Auburn....Alabama played pasties in their non conference games....people noted it but few cared...

    Anyways it doesn't matter...everyone in town is happy with the Rose Bowl....by January 1 2 playoff teams will be done and the Ducks will still be playing...

    Btw what's with the South and these State Troopers hovering over the head coach....the LSU coach had 4 at the end of halftime...

    The way it is set up now there is little point in a Big 5 Conference team playing a tough non conference opponent unless the school needs the money ....and Oregon doesn't....

    Look at Minnesota for the most obvious example...

    I disagree. Just look what happened to Alabama after they lost to LSU and look what happened to Oregon after they lost to Arizona State.

    I don't know. I always assumed that was standard protocol with every head football coach at flagship universities.
