Auburn Breaks Drought to Win National Championship!!!

It wasn't pretty and it really shouldn't have been that close, but Auburn's resiliency comes through again to outlast the Ducks and win the Crystal football. I've never seen a crappier field in the history of sport than what they served up in Glendale because it negated so many plays for us. It was like we were playing on glass.

LaMichael James was shut down and Auburn could defend 3rd and short but had problems with 3rd and long. Nick Fairley played the game of his life and will soon be a very rich man. He will have earned every penny of it.

We'll summarize every detail of the game tomorrow. Everybody celebrate into the night. Congrats to the Ducks and their fans who proved to be every bit as classy as we thought.

War Eagle!
