Good team effort by Texas so far. I'm impressed that they stayed in it mentally.

Seems like the teams I cheer for (Broncos, Sooners) never have that kind of mental fortitude.

Also, I think Arenas is a great college player, don't get me wrong. So was Derrick Strait, but for whatever reason, his college dominance didn't transfer to the NFL at all. Maybe Arenas's skills will!

Texas is the better of these two teams. Texas has stayed in this game after losing McCoy. Imagine Tebow going out for Florida and Florida staging a comeback behind a freshman.

Thats just stupid logic. Texas is better than Bama even if they lose? Why? Because Ingram also went out for a portion of the game where Texas came back? (before you throw out the Colt thing, since Ingram was also hurt too, but came back)

You can't just throw out unfounded stuff like that, then say that we don't know whether or not Texas and Florida match up.

Bama played very poorly in the 2nd half. I expected alot more from Alabama this game and they didn't bring it.

Texas controlled the game. When Froshboy was inserted, they made some crucial mistakes (as to be expected when a young player gets put in the star QB's place in a natl. championship game). Once they got their feet back about themselves, they took back control of the game. Alabama's 3rd down conversion rate was awful. Had McCoy been in that game, Texas wins by 20.

McCoy is a gamer. I think that its pretty safe to say that Texas plays a less confused offensive game with McCoy throwing the ball. I think that its also safe to say that the difference in the game was 'Bama's two big turnovers inside Texas' 10 that were both converted into TD's...the only points that 'Bama scored during the second half were after Froshboy's turnover. The play that took the game from 17-6 to 24-6 were also given by a Froshboy turnover. If Alabama were good, they would have separated from Texas in the 3rd quarter. Instead, Texas mounted a comeback behind a freshman with poop in his pants.

Alabama: not impressive.

Not sure I could validate putting the losing team on top, no matter the circumstances. It's a team game, and injuries are a part of it and nobody should get special sympathy for having to deal with it.

That said, if Colt is healthy Texas wins by 10. At least. I too thought Bama would be the clearly superior team, but Texas made McElroy look downright awful and Shippley took over the game in the second half. Take away a couple big runs or a couple catastrophic turnovers and Texas wins with Gilbert.

I had no real rooting interest in this game, but it was frustrating to see the better team shoot themselves in the foot like this (though it's to be expected from a QB who has played so little). SEC is clearly the best conference in terms of how many good teams it boasts top to bottom, but this game showed that they ultimately were just as lacking in a juggernaut as every other conference this season. Just lots of parity, some good squads, no real great teams.

I cant remember the last time I saw the better team lose the title game outside of this year. I thought that Oklahoma was just about as good as Florida, but where Oklahoma's playmakers failed (mainly the wideouts...dropped balls left and right), Florida's made the plays late (Harvin and Tebow both converted). Thats the difference in a champion and 2nd place. Florida was that much better. Not much, but enough.

However, I didnt see anything in this game that led me to believe that Alabama was better.

And it's not like they even think to ask another single player about their father. Just him because of the "unique" story angle. I like the way Ingram plays and he seems like a genuinely good kid, but that's pathetic journalism.

They just keep going and going.... It's not like it's a special story or anything anyway, he was just dumb and broke the law, got thrown in jail, and still talks to his kid. I get it. But don't need to hear it like 12 more times.

I'm proud to be a Longhorn tonight. No excuses, we lost. Our team fought like champions. And the future looks bright with Gilbert under center.

Gotta hand it to your 'Horns. They got dealt a bad hand and made a run at the chips with it. They stayed in the game despite Gilbert soiling his drawers and then the Texas team's collective deflating after that.

Congrats to Alabama. They deserve to be champs. But I am sad that we were robbed of what was shaping up to be a classic game. Congrats to the Horns for not giving up and coming close in the 4th quarter but we'll never know which team was really the better one.

I think if McCoy had not been hurt, both teams would have played better.

And if Bradford doesn't get hurt early, Oklahoma beats Texas this season. If we're playing what-ifs, let's play them all. Can't have it both ways.

Credit Alabama for playing physical defense, that was the reason they had the goal line stand early, and that's why McCoy got injured. 'Bama brought the wood and Texas paid the price.

That and I am happy I bet on the Roll Tide!

Fine, dip****.

Texas beat Oklahoma the year before and Bradford played the whole game so don't pretend Texas couldn't win that game with Bradford playing four quarters.

I understand you can't blame losses on injuries and I didn't try to. What I was saying is that history was robbed of a great game, which it would have been had one team not been handcuffed to the point that they were no match for their opponent.

So many good players tonight. Shipley, Johnson, Cody, Thomas, McCoy(though he didn't play much), Arenas. Most of all I'm impressed with Rolando McClain. Whoever gets this guy(hopefully my Chiefs :thumbsup:) is getting the best LB that I have seen in a very long time. IMO he is going to be even better than Patrick Willis. He studies opponents as hard as Peyton Manning does and his smarts rival Manning's. He is rarely out of position and always making plays. There were 3 plays tonight where he pushed the Texas Center back 5 yards into the QB. This kid is as good of a defender that I have seen since Ed Reed.

But enough of my liking of McClain. It was a good game and props to Texas for fighting as hard as they did to win.

That game was pretty interesting. Both teams pretty much had to throw out their entire game plans (Alb D vs Texas O) and just call plays on the fly. Thats why you saw a lot of bonehead plays, neither team prepared for something like this to happen.

Did anyone notice how one of the best defensive teams in the country could only get to the QB on a CB blitz and Nebraska was eating the Texas O-line for lunch all game.

If you don't think that Suh is going #1 overall compare these two games. Cody is a joke, Texas got what they deserved.

i cant remember the last time i saw the better team lose the title game outside of this year. I thought that oklahoma was just about as good as florida, but where oklahoma's playmakers failed (mainly the wideouts...dropped balls left and right), florida's made the plays late (harvin and tebow both converted). Thats the difference in a champion and 2nd place. Florida was that much better. Not much, but enough.

However, i didnt see anything in this game that led me to believe that alabama was better.

in all honesty, the guy's the backup at UT as a true frosh for a reason--he's got talent. still, the Bama defense clearly wasn't playing with the same intensity that it had in wrecking the kid's confidence in the first half. they took their foot off the gas pedal and, to the kid's credit, he found his groove and executed.

Considering 63% of his passing yards, both TD's and 60% of his completions went to their best playmaker and WR in Shipley who will be leaving, I question how bright the future looks.
He could be a player, or he could be Rhett Bomar.

Pretty good game to watch considering the draft.
There was no almost victory. The stat line is telling.
He'll have to do better next year or it will be a long season.
Luckily they won't have to play Alabama every week.

When McCoy was in the game, Alabama was screwing up all over the place, giving Texas the advantage, and he managed two fgs. They couldn't score from the one. I'm sure all those Texas whiners have heads full of fairy tales of all the TDs that might have been, but the truth is, the writing was on the wall. Texas would never have won that game. McCoy, or no McCoy.

there were several incomplete passes that were on target but dropped by the reciever. even the shovel pass was fine.

Bull$h!t. Alabama played bad and still lost. They played uber conservative in the second half and tried to just run the clock out. Once the score got close again Bama made the plays and ran away with the game. The difference in the coaches is huge too. The better team won regardless and your argument could of been used that Nebraska was better than Texas. This was a classic case of the worse team played better but didn't make enough plays to beat the C game of a better team.

The game was broken open by two mistakes by a true freshman QB that resulted in TD's.

Texas was the better team. Unfortunately for them, they lost their best player.

I know its hard for you after Texas swabbed the deck with your "greatest team of all time Reggie Bush Leinart Trojans", but I think that just about anyone who watched that game with an unbiased opinion came away impressed more with Texas.

I simply said that one team was better than the other. There are obvious circumstances that would mitigate the outcome that you suggested.

The big story from this game is that Colt McCoy got hurt and lost a shot at the title (when he went out, Texas was leading...just a little factoid), not that Alabama won. Why? Because I think that most people would default to the conclusion that Alabama would win if Colt McCoy didnt play.

The scoreboard tells a different story. The only reason Texas was even in that game was because the incompetent coaching staff of Nebraska gave them the Big 12 title. The big story from this game is that Mack Brown is a nincompoop and defense win championships. But I do enjoy a vintage Texas whine. ;D

I was just disappointed in the game. I thought that McCoy gave Texas a shot to win, and when he went out of the game Texas folded up the tent until half time. It was just disappointing because it ruined what I had hoped was an entertaining game. Texas made it interesting, though, to their credit. Alabama almost flubbed up what they were supposed to do.

Yeah, I almost want to go back and watch a replay. I bailed on the game at halftime, it looked like a complete disaster for Texas capped off by the shovel pass INT for a TD. Had too much work to do to justify watching a blowout involving two teams I could care less for. I was rather surprised to see that Texas made somewhat of a game of it in the 2nd half.

McCoy went out when it was 0-0 with a 2nd and 10 upcoming from the 11 yard line. I think the game play of Texas would've been vastly different than what they did with McCoy in, but I still don't know if they would've won.

Yep then Texas had 1st and goal from the 1 and couldn't get it in. The team that forces FG's in that situation or scores TD's instead of FG's usually wins and guess what Alabama won.

Alabama brought their C game and won.

Ok so them losing McCoy is a bigger deal than the portion of the 2nd half where Ingram, the HEISMAN, was out? It goes both ways.

No, it doesn't go both ways dumbass. A RB vs a QB. If you can't see the difference there you don't understand this game. The Horns could have lost any other player on the field and not suffered as much as they did by losing their QB.

Hats off to Alabama for winning the Championship. I think we would have seen a completely different game had McCoy not been injured. Not necessarily a Longhorn win, but a different game entirely. It would have been a much closer game at halftime and Alabama wouldn't have gone into cruise control in the 3rd Quarter. McCoy being in the game would have made both teams better and therefore a better game for fans to watch. It is what it is though, Alabama is your National Champion and Coach Saban has done a remarkable job turning that program around in such a short time. Congrats!
