The refs didn't do the last kick off for Nebraska.

When you are needing to stop a team from getting into field goal range, you don't have your kick off go out of bounds.

Surely there are some farm boys in Nebraska who can kick off between the lines.

If you can't---------you shouldn't be kicking off for a college team.

Keeping a kick off inbounds is not very difficult.

Marmac is right. If there is any crucial time for keeping it in bounds it is when you are 2 points up with less than 2 minutes to go in the game, it is that one. But give credit to Nebraska. Nobody gave them a shot and they almost pulled it off. Their program looks to have a bright future.

I was tempted to predict a higher score for Texas but I think Nebraska's defense will be very tough.
TT Dave got it.

No one else was remotely close in this one, besides me and flying writer, but we both had Nebbish the winner.

I think Florida was a bit of a paper champion this year. They played a weak schedule and frankly, should have lost before this, cough, Arkansas, cough. Alabama looked better last night. However, there have been times that the Tide have looked beatable and should have lost, cough, Tennesee, cough. I do think a team like TCU would bring a stout defense and solid offense against Bama and it would be a great game. Since it won't happen, I would love to see TCU do some damage against Florida raising even more questions regarding the superiority of the major conferences, cough, SEC, cough.

Texas played awfully, just awfully ... there's absolutely no doubting it from the eyes of this Longhorn. Colt's performance was unbelievably below par and we sat at home, shocked. Their defense however was superb, as was Nebraska's. Nebraska played an awesome game and they damn near kicked our ass. Man, the Huskers taught us a thing or two last night. Nebraska was not robbed, however ... they lost the game in part because they made some critical mistakes that allowed Texas to get in position for the win. Teams that make mistakes usually show themselves to be the lesser team, and both teams had crappy offense last night ... Texas's offense was simply slightly less sucky. I have nothing but praise for the Huskers and they should be proud of their performance last night. They wore us out and almost left as the champions.

At the end of the day, mistakes were made by both teams and nothing short of divine intervention gave us that last second 47-yard field goal. All the whining about bad calls, refs cheating, etc. sounds like nothing more than pissed off fans who didn't get the result that they wanted. I know it's easy to judge a team by it's final performance, but go back and review Texas's stats for the year and look at some of the great teams they played. They were a powerful team that remained undefeated throughout the season and although last night's performance is one to be mocked for certain, they earned their right to go to Pasadena. If they get beat by Alabama, they get beat. Let the game be decided on the field on January 7th, and not online five weeks prior by a bunch of keyboard quarterbacks.

And on to the subject of Tebow ... I can't believe some of the comments I'm reading about the guy showing his emotion out on the field. He just lost the last game of his kickass college career, and he lost it bigtime. This is a big, tough kid ... he's nobody's *****. The fact that he cried only showed how important that game was to him. Give him credit for that amount of passion. At some point in the final minutes of that game he probably saw his entire college career flashing before his eyes - the highs and the lows. He accomplished a LOT during his tenure at Florida and it all ended on the field last night. I'm sure all of you big tough guys at home can say you've ever experienced something just like that, eh?

Cool, lets all rep TTDave and Flyingwriter!

Since I'm a husker fan i think I should also point this out. Anyone else think the Huskers would struggle against a solid High School defense? Because I do. ****, there offense is soooooo bad.

My scores were way off. Who would have thought the the no-defense-playing-Big XII would be the defensive battle of the night and the high-power-defense-SEC would have so many points scored. Obviously not me. That was the first time I have seen Texas or Nebraska play this year. Texas sucks and Pelini (sp?) seems to have brought back the Black Shirt mentality to the Huskers.

It was nice to see a Big XII North team actually look like a real football team. That is usually a really weak division.

Of course Florida was a paper champion. The media had Tebow's nuts on their chins all year long. It was pathetic.

Texas and Nebraska have been playing great D all year long. Hence the fact they are both top 5 D's.
