Looks like OU vs Stanford in the Sun Bowl.

Bascially I thnik that McCoy got it right when he was asked what happened to the loghorns offense;he pointed to the nabraska defnses great game play. Its too bad that their are not more college players will to admit that the other team can have a great game. Some teams rise to the occasion and I think many times it motivates them to play better especially when you have nothing to lose;which is why college sports is so unpredictable. I think that predicting the winner of alabama and texas will be very hard looking at their play.Most gave alabama not much chance of beating Flroida.Texas is a much different team than Florida is and alabama is a very good team, Either IMO could win at that level of college sports which is why they are there.As far as the BCS ;its a business arrangement unlike the past popularity contest we use to see. Certainly matches teams better than the old contest IMO.I am sure tenesse fans too think what could have been but that is college sports.

Lane Kiffin said that Alabama had the better coaches in the SECC. After seeing the way that Bama ran out there and picked the Gators apart with the spread, I would have to agree with his statement.

We'll never know if its true or not. LOL.

Not until Division I has a true championship.

Division III has four footballteams that are 13-0. Three of the four will have a loss at the end of the day December 19, 2009.

Above average maybe?
By the very definition of "mediocre", Nebraska would be closer to 6-6.

Tech is a good team, btw.

I saw weaknesses in the Florida Gators in some of the games they played during the season that were disturbing, commentators kept talkiing about losing Percy Harvin was a big factor,but I saw, especially in the Georgia game(lopsided score)the defense was giving up considerable yardage in the air and on the ground.I think Alabama saw in the Georgia films as well as other SEC games and exposed Florida's defense as well as coming out in a spread defense that threw Florida off.


With all that being saisd there was more hunger and better preparation on the Alabama side.

Good teams don't lose to UH and Aggie.

Texas is the only good team in the Big 12 this year, and IMO they have been less than impressive in numerous games. (OU, aTm, Wyoming, NU)

Everyone else just has too many silly losses.

I wasn't trying to knock NU bro. Just sayin the Big 12 as a whole is very weak this year.
