BCS National Championship: FSU vs. Auburn Game Thread

I don't know about you, but I don't have any vested rooting interests in this game. Who are you hoping will win?

So we're obviously not included in this one tonight, but it's still the biggest game of the season, everything that everything gears toward all year. SB Nation has you covered with a hub, a storystream, and, of course, live coverage of the game itself. If you want to see what the participants are saying, each of the blogs for the respective schools in the game tonight are represented at right with this neat little widget I just love using. Also, check out Bill Connelly's expansive preview for the game linked below.

And vote in the poll, of course! You can help me resolve some internal conflict I've been feeling about this game. For a while, I've tried and failed to figure out who I want to win. On the one hand, almost nobody outside the SEC wants them to win again so we can all hear about it incessantly. On the other, it feels wrong to me to root for Florida State. I definitely like Malzahn and his offense better, and in a vacuum, I'd feel almost like kindred spirits with Auburn fans ... but I can't. I still feel like it's pretty likely they bought a national championship with Cam Newton, who I really have no problem with other than the fact that I think he got paid. Even that is only an issue because it was against the rules, but I hate the rule. And again, FSewwwwwwww.... This is really tough.

I've been looking at that picture of the two coaches on the cover of the storystream all day thinking that I had no idea Jimbo Fisher is so short. Because I don't think Gus Malzahn is exactly a giant. What is it with short coaches and dominant football?
