Oregon has never really struck me as a deep ball passing team. They do a lot of stuff underneath and move the ball laterally, and only going deep when everyone's all up at the line of scrimmage, sucking wind, with substitutions barely in place, expecting another 15 yard pass. Alabama's seen that style of play, so there would be no surprises against them in this regard. They're well-conditioned, except against physically superior linemen. Oregon's not physically superior. A few years ago, yeah, Alabama might be in trouble against this kind of offense, but in recent years, Alabama actually seems to like and prefer Oregon's style of play and seems to have thoroughly disliked the deep passing game of teams like Oklahoma and OSU. A reversal from 3-5 years ago.

It was a 3 point game with under 5 minutes to go when the Biggest QB Bust in UT history (a freshman with almost 0 playing time all season - thanks Mack) turns over the ball twice near Texas' own red zone.

Afterwards those Tide fans strutted around like they had it in the bag and Texas never stood a chance in the first place. Yeah... sure. They should've sent Gilbert a nice thank you note afterwards.

McCoy plays the whole game - Texas wins by 2 tds.

I wouldn't bring that up, but too many Bama folks continue to delude themselves.

Excuses, excuses.

I think it's fair to say that we'll never know what the outcome would have been if McCoy had been uninjured, but you can't assume that Texas would have won anymore than you can assume Buffalo would have defeated Dallas in Super Bowl 27 if Jim Kelly had not been hurt. You can speculate, but that's all you can do.

No question, Colt McCoy would have made a difference, but who knows, maybe Colt McCoy performs no better than Mariota did on Monday. Oregon moved the ball well in the first quarter against Ohio State, but the Buckeyes made adjustments. Alabama probably would have made adjustments as well.

In the end, it doesn't matter. Alabama won, and those two programs have gone in completely opposite directions since that time.

Everyone deals with injuries in football. It is part of the game.

Ok, with Cupcake week done, it's time to dust off the old thread and see what's ahead.

Rough 2-5 bowl performance last season, the SEC West still have 5 teams in the top 25 and two in the top 10.

We'll have to see how it goes next week when some of these teams start playing some competition, aka other SEC West teams.

I'd like to see LSU arise to the top of the SEC West this year. Been a while for them.

How do you think everyone looked? Were you surprised about anything?

I'm never surprised when an SEC West team beats a non-SEC West team. Neither is the scoreboard for that matter. The only time the spread is less than 30 seems to be when they play each other.

Would like to see MissSt win, but LSU is supposed to have an awesome running game I hear.

Arkansas blew it.

When an SecW team loses, it's national news.

Had Auburn lost today, it would have been World News.

Jacksonville State threw that game away.

Shanked punt.

Kneeling with 39 seconds left and 1 timeout. Game proceeds to go to overtime.

JSU loses.
