I'm not one of those people. I think they deserved to be there as much as, if not more than, the other participants that all suffered a regular season defeat. I'm from the old school that you have to knock the champion out to win the belt, and, well, Oregon did just that, bringing FSU to its knees. They didn't just beat them; they embarrassed them. The defending national champs who had been called "unflappable" earlier in the week, fell to pieces with four fumbles and an interception and in just less than 13 minutes allowed the Ducks to extend their score from 25-20, to 59-20 – the first time in 101 games that someone had scored 50 points in the Granddaddy of Them All, the Rose Bowl.
