Too much time left. I'm worried.
at least it's not just us?
Too much time left. I'm worried.
I like UT more than Nebraska, so I hope they win. But I wouldn't mind seeing TCU vs Alabama.
But we've seen this end-game scenario many, many times.
1. BOOM! that's the noise of Colt and Tebow falling PDF the first round today.
2. I hope Texas doesn't win.. There's no way they score on Bama..
3. If Nebraska wins only on field goals.. I'll lol
Speaking of jinxes...
Read my post again.. I didn't jinx them..
At no point did I imply the game was over..
Man, that was a bad kickoff. Shades of Patriots-Panthers Super Bowl.
Why kick ball out of bounds?
Either Colt wins the Heisman in the next 1:44 and sends UT to the MNC or down in flames for both of them.
No way in hell does he win the Heisman for that "drive."
Bad, bad, bad. Really? Settle for a long FG attempt?
Saturday this has been.....
LES MILES CLOCKWORK. What are they thinking.
Let's see TCU and Alabama go head-to-head. I'd love to see 'Bama lose back to back bowl games against a MWC team. Just sayin'
In any case, what a game, eh?
Charlie didnt get a review.
Texas does not deserve to win after that.
That was an absolutely horrible last few plays by Texas. I understand that they want to run the clock down, but that was an incredibly risky last play.
Please miss this kick.
THE dumbest play ever. texas almost cost themselves a BCS championship berth with that beauty
They should have rolled that last second on general principle.
If Texas plays Alabama, expect 3-of-4 for the SEC.
CMU kicker style.
Never should leave a timeout on the board in this situation. Worse than the Miles game management in my opinion.
What a great game!
Did you watch the first 55 minutes?
so no. I just saw the last quarter. But a game winner with a long field goal is always awesome.
...will destroy Texas.
Mark it down.
Texas will deserve the whuppin it receives from Alabama.
Agreed. They needed a last second FG against no22, and Bama smashed the (probably overranked) no1 team.
Oh man, I hope Texas is ready to be bulldozed for 4 quarters. They look horrible against a very good defense; Alabama's defense is going to grind them up all day. Ugh, another overrated opponent for the SEC to cream and "prove" how great a conference it is.
What a disgrace of a game. Nebraska got jobbed in a way I don't think I have ever seen. I hope Bama tears them apart in Pasadena.
Are you disputing the 1 second call or something else? It looked like the right call to me.
It just seemed like there were quite a few "questionable" calls throughtout the game that helped Texas. In the end the guy who kicked off for Nebraska lost them the game. I usually don't think one player is the sole reason for a team's failure to win but he was in this instance.
That and the horse-collar penalty. Texas got it by the skin of their teeth and IMO earned the win, but they really couldn't have had any more breaks go their way on the final drive.
Wow. Could you imagine being the Nebraska team running on the field thinking you won the championship, only to have it ripped away 2 minutes later?
I feel soooo badly for Nebraska. This was their game...they got robbed.
Sweet redemption seeing Nebraska come out on the field thinking they'd won, and then have to hoof it back to watch themselves get beaten.
That is pretty callous. This isn't the same Nebraska that we had to share a MNC with. This team deserved to win and to get joy out of that is ridiculous. Grow up
Has nothing to do with the National Championship, and everything to do with the Alamo Bowl. I was there. It sucked.
And if they deserved to win, they wouldn't have done everything they could to help Texas get into field goal range. They basically handed UT 40 yards of free yardage between the kickoff and the horse collar.
Ok, substitute Alamo Bowl for MNC. You're jaded bc they beat us in a bowl that happened almost 4 years ago?
It's called historical Schadenfreude. Sorry, I'm not a Nebraska fan...
Why can't we learn from Nebraska?
It is obvious a tough D can make spread look like middle school scheme. Hats off to a great game by Nebraska. Their linebackers had speed and made plays - Ezeh and Mouton please see this game x 100.
I think an elite defense can make any offense look horrible. Look at Alabama vs. Utah or Alabama vs. Florida, or USC vs. anyone from the Big 10. Talented defenses can make offenses work for their points.
The only saving grace for Texas will be that Alabama has a pretty simple/predictable offense. Sure, they have some wrinkles that can flummox a team, but Texas has a great defense as well. I still think Alabama will run through them in the end, but the more I think about it Alabama has the type of offense that is going to have a hard time moving against Texas. We might have another 13-10 score for the MNC.
Well it proved that an elite defense is better than an elite offense. If Nebraska's offense would've had a pulse they would've come out on top tonight. It may not be pretty but I think that between the Bama/Florida and Texas/Nebraska games we found that defense is more important than offense.
One game doesn't prove anything. In recent years we've seen plenty of strong defenses get ripped apart in the national title game. The safest conclusion we can draw is that you have to be solid on both sides of the ball to win it all, and may have to rely on either one at times.
