Tonight is a bittersweet evening for us here at the College Football Blog. On the surface, we're all extremely excited for the title game between Auburn and Oregon tonight. No matter how you feel about the BCS and the way that college football settles things, it's hard to argue that the matchup between these two teams isn't as good as it will get in college football this season.
Underneath all of that, though, remains one rather depressing fact. After tonight, we don't have any more college football games for nearly nine months. That's an entire pregnancy. That's right, an entire living human can be conceived and formed in the time that will pass before you get to see your favorite schools line up on a Saturday afternoon again.
Still, we'll deal with that crippling withdrawal when we have to. For now, we soldier on and look forward to the legends that tonight will bring. No matter where you're watching the game, just know that the boys and I will have you covered. If you like, you can join me, Tom Fornelli, over on our Facebook page as I'll be holding a live chat throughout the game. If Twitter is more your thing, then follow our Twitter account (@CBSSportsNCAAF) where Adam Jacobi will be making observations about what he sees. Or, if the social media thing just isn't your scene, you can stay right here on the blog. Chip Patterson will have live updates here on the site all night long.
So join us tonight as we celebrate the culmination of what has been our first season here with you at CBSSports. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and in the end, you'll know that no matter what happens, you're a better person for just being there. Or you'll just have spent a few hours watching a great football game. Whatever you prefer. Just join us, won't you?
