Philosophy football

(Not these people, who no longer seem to make a Wittgenstein t-shirt, sadly.)
Tonight the football teams that represent two great American philosophy departments square off in the Tostitos Bowl Championship Series National Championship Game (which surely needs a better name).

Oregon has cool uniforms, a team called the Ducks (a refreshing change from the usual things-that-could-beat-you-up kind of nickname), and Don S. Levi (among others).

Auburn comes from a part of the country where I think football belongs (basically the Midwest and the Deep South--is this a thought I should give up?), has a better team, and has not only individuals like Kelly Dean Jolley, James Shelley, and Reshef Agam-Segal, but also a great department all around.

So I'll be rooting for Auburn.
