Open BCS Championship Bowl Game Thread

Will Texas pull another big upset in the biggest game (please please please)? Will the great Satan win his 2nd at his 2nd SEC school? How glad are we that we're done with Fox? And will Denise from Taco Bell join us on ABC? All these questions and more will be answered during tonight's game. Here's to us not watching the game and commenting on it here in the near future because we're all AT the game, watching a much more likable team. :-)

They were a great team, but they were playing the "team of the history of college football" or atleast that's exactly what ESPN was making USC out to be. And that was an extremely talented USC team to boot.

So while an amazing team, and the winning team, it was still an upset. Going into that game nobody was giving them a shot in hell.

But I thought it was a very cagey spread by Vegas. A little higher and everyone takes the underdog in. Champ game, a little lower and it's all on Bama's side. They did their job this time.

And let's hope you're right on your next two predictions. Right now the former is looking better than the latter. Yeesh. :-(

I think Alabama will win. I think Texas will hang around and lose maybe 34-20, although the game might seem closer. I don't think Texas has faced a D like Bama's. They play crappy Big12 defenses like Texas A&M. Texas' D is good, but not as good as Bama's.

I think Texas' defense is going to bitch slap Alabama's O. Just a hunch, but anger d/t disrespect could carry them a long way. The one thing I am certain of is that the team that scores the most points will win. Finishing second isn't a moral victory, just gives you the distinction of being the best known and most memorable LOSER.

I'm just excited that the loser of this game will have a conference record in bowls this year of .500 I believe. In addition, even with an Alabama win, the Big Ten will still have a better winning percentage in bowls this year than the SEC. No matter what happens tonight, the Big Ten finished 4-3 and the MAC is on a one game bowl winning streak (after a 13 bowl losing streak). Midwest football is back! Somehow I dont think anyone really gives a hoot, arguably not even in the Midwest. :)

Above is based on my memory of bowl outcomes this year and was not researched for accuracy...that would take too much time and effort

I think 'Bama's lines are overrated, but they're still extremely good. I think 'Bama takes this in the end because in the 4th they'll be able to use Ingram to kill the clock. Even so, likely a one score game. Watch them prove me wrong now.

I want to make picks like Caroll does. "If McCoy can run the ball, I feel Texas has a good chance."

For example my Pete Caroll-esque pick for tOSU-UMich: "If Tressel loses his mind and starts recruiting only circus midgets, I feel Michigan has an excellent chance for dominance in this decade."

I was wondering the same thing about May. They must
have one helluva light system there.

Hook 'Em, Horns

This is going to be a good game, I hope Colt has
his 'A' game on tonight.
