Many Oregon fans can still feel the sting from their 22-19 loss to Auburn in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. It is widely assumed that Alabama will be back in the national championship game again this season, so Ducks fans have been walking around this year wearing shirts that read “We Want Bama” across the front of them. Yeah, about that.
Oregon’s chance of facing Bama — or any other team — in the BCS National Championship Game all but evaporated on Thursday night when they lost to Stanford. As if the loss didn’t sting enough, CBS Birmingham’s Jim Dunaway shared a photo of the new shirts Bama fans are selling to remind the Ducks that they should not have overlooked Stanford.
“We Forgot Stanford,” the shirt reads.
That pretty much covers it. Maybe Stanford was simply the better team. Maybe the Ducks overlooked their opposition. If the latter is true, shame on them.
