I think we should have a "Rose Bowl Game" thread on Wednesday stickied somewhere on this board (probably here).

And they, the media, are saying this should be one of the true great games of the Century. Are you kidding me. It's only 2006. THere are still 94 more years left in this century. Granted it 'should' be a great game as the #1 and #2 teams in the nation are playing each other. But I still think it's faaaar to early to be calling it one of the greatest games ever played.

I think it is funny how they are calling it the greatest game ever too. Funny how they forgot that last year's game was #1 v. #2, both undefeated, had two heisman winners going against each other, had 4 out of the 5 heisman finalists, and what was the result? 55-10 USC. And that is after USC called off the dogs in the 4th quarter.

USC's offense is much better than it was last year. Their defense may not be as good, but it is very under rated because they have been plagued with injuries for most of the season and apparently are healthy now.

Texas has a very good team but I am a little concerned that their record might be misleading because of the weak schedule they played. They did beat Ohio State and that was impressive, but that was Ohio State without Troy Smith playing the entire game. After seeing Ohio State a few days ago, I am convinced that they would beat Texas if they played them right now. They are a completely different team with Troy Smith under center. Texas also played Oklahoma with an injured Adrian Peterson. With out Peterson, that team is garbage. After that, who did they play? An over rated Texas Tech team which runs a gimmick offense? I'm sorry but this smells like Oklahoma last year all over again.

Sorry Longhorn fans, I don't see this game much better.

USC 56

The hype machine is always spinning these days. Remember how bad Boxing used to be "fight of Century" "Fight of the Decade" blah blah blah. In 2004 it was "robert Gallery the best Tackle in the draft in 20 years" then this year its "Reggie Bush is the next Gayle Sayers".

I thought that last years Rose Bowl was the best game of the century :confused:

I seriously doubt this game lives up to all the hype & billing, but I'll be watching just like everybody else (where's the sheep?) :sbad:

If I was a betting man, I'd happily accept an offer and bet that USC will win by 10+ points, beyond that I don't know if I'd bet anything. If the game stays close I think UT will likely win, but if one team is going to win in a blow-out it's USC. That said, my prediction for the score is:
USC 45
UT 30

Something tell sme it's going to be a game alot closer than 15 points. This could be one heck of a game. To me it's all about the defensive abilities of both teams. And I do believe that Texas has the edge there. Horns by 9

Entertainment, boxing and football are about the hype. The technical stuff is always down played. If they say this will be a good game between two evenly matched opponents, most people start changing the channel. "Game of the Century" gets attention, because most of us won't be around for the next showing if it lives up to billing.

Thats fine if you want to pick apart Texas' schedule, but lets take a look at USC's.

1. Hawaii (5-7) (A losing season. This team is just bad)
2. Arkansas (4-7) (A losing season)
3. Oregon (10-1) (Lost to that Sooner team that Texas destroyed)
4. Arizona St. (6-5) (Not a very impressive win over AZ St)
5. Arizona (3-8) (3 whole wins for this team. Another great test for USC)
6. Notre Dame (9-3) (USC almost lost to this team. And Ohio St. rocked ND. Another team that Texas destroyed)
7. Washington (2-9) (What a win for USC. A crappy 2-9 team)
8. Washington St. (4-7) (Another great win. 4-7)
9. Stanford (5-6) (Another losing season.
10. California (7-4) ( Didnt hear much from the Golden Bears this year)
11. Fresno St. (8-4) (Almost lost to Fresno St. FS is nothing special this year. Even lost their bowl)
12. UCLA (9-2) (Only great team on USC's schedule)

And dont even compare White to Young. They are miles apart in talent.

So you were worried about Texas' misleading schedule? Look at theirs.

5 ranked opponents and everyones best shot. If you take down #1, you've made your season no matter what the record. I don't think it will be a blow out, but Texas better score a bunch or they won't win.

Oregon lost to an Oklahoma team that had a more experienced Rhett Bomar and Adrian Peterson was playing and healthy.

USC beat Notre Dame in South Bend where Notre Dame grew the grass out to about 10 inches to slow them down and Notre Dame lost to Ohio State when Justin Zwick wasn't the quarterback.

Fresno State is a rivalry game just like Texas A&M is a rivalry game to Texas.

And UCLA dominated Oklahoma when Adrian Peterson was healthy and USC held UCLA to 6 points until garbage time in the fourth quarter.

If you would like me to criticize the Longhorns schedule more in depth I will.

1. La-Lafayette (Wow what a win)
2. Ohio State (This was impressive, but was with out Troy Smith)
3. Rice (Another power house)
4. Missouri (Another great Big 12 North team)
5. Oklahoma (Beat an inexperienced Rhett Bomar and no Adrian Peterson)
6. Colorado (Needs no explanation)
7. Texas Tech (Gimmick offense that gets beaten badly when faces any good team)
8. Oklahoma State (worst team in the Big 12 South)
9. Baylor (second worst team in the Big 12 South)
10. Kansas (second worst team in the Big 12 North)
11. Texas A&M (had a losing record, no Reggie McNeal, and still almost beat Texas)
12. Colorado (see original description)

There you have it. The great Texas schedule.

There you have it. The great Texas schedule.

Your reading and comprehension skills lack.

I'm not defending Texas' schedule. And I never said Texas had a "great" schedule. I merely said, "Thats fine if you want to pick apart Texas' schedule, but lets take a look at USC's."

Basically I want everyone to know that both teams didn't have stellar opponents.

If you are going to dock the Longhorns, then you must dock the Trojans as well.

Hi, Houston Texans fans! :) Sorry for the poor season, and Dom Capers firing, but good luck negotiating and drafting Reggie Bush! I believe he will help the Texans running game immensely if he has an effective offensive line in front of him and the Texans find and hire the right coach for Reggie and the Texans team if both materialize.

I couldn't find a College Football forum thread here in the Texans Official Message Board, but maybe the Mods might still help me if appropriate. Otherwise I like to announce that tonight is the climax to the Bowl Championship Series and American NCAA College Football. The 104th Rose Bowl game, "The Granddaddy Of Them All," will be played at Pasadena, California between #1 USC Trojans vs. the #2 Texas Longhorns. Battle of the two remaining undefeateds in NCAA College Football. Reggie Bush and Matt Leinhart vs. Vince Young. Pete Carroll vs. Mack Brown. Pacific 10 vs. Big 12 Conferences. Snoop Doggy Dog and Henry Winkler vs. Lance Armstrong and Matthew McConaghey.

Keith Jackson and former Oregon Duck and SD Charger Dan Fouts will call the action in this Bowl Championship Series Game for ABC. I have no idea if USC will blowout Texas and going well beyond the spread like they did at the Orange Bowl game last year (Dolphins Stadium At Miami Gardens), but i feel a closer game score-wise will become more cometitive and entertaining, and shoulds help the TV ratings for ABC especially.

I am sure there are Texans fans that are also Texas Longhorns fans who will view this game and Texas is seeking their first NCAA College Football Championship since 1970.

I'm setting my DVDR/TIVo to 5 hours of recording time, better to overrecord than underrecord in case the game extends through the game activities and overtime like last night's Orange Bowl game (My congrats to Joe Pa). ABC will give us a great BCS game tonight. Enjoy your evening and happy viewing! :)

I don't see how there could be a better match up this century. The teams stayed and 1 & 2 all year long from the preseason pole to the end. Both have great offenses, three of the four HEISMAN Candidates, many future nfl players on both teams. This is the match up of the century-will not ever be a better one. Now, there is a difference between match-up of the century and game of the century. We will have to wait and see how the game plays out before we can judge it's place in history.

I was with you till you said "matchup of the century". Cmon now. It is 2006. There are still 96 more years to go. As you said 3 of the 4 heisman trophy candites are here. What if there ws a game in the future which had all 4? What if in the future a team had the number one offense and number two D faced the team with the number 2 offense and number 1 defense? Would that be a better game? A good game: very likely. Game of the century: far too early to say.

6. Notre Dame (9-3) (USC almost lost to this team. And Ohio St. rocked ND. Another team that Texas destroyed)

I guess you hoped no one would call you on this. Ohio State versus Notre Dame was a much closer game than the score indicated. So, no, OSU did NOT "rock" Notre Dame. And Texas "destroyed" Ohio State??? Excuse me, 25-22, does not qualify as "destroyed". And yes, the game was as close as the score.

Why do we make up facts when it comes to arguing who is better? Each team has ACTUAL strengths and weaknesses to discuss.... :brickwall

OU-USC last year was pretty similar. They were #s 1 & 2 throughout the whole year and had four of the Heisman finalists (Leinart, Bush, White, Peterson)

I was just saying you are basing "Game of the Century" on next 94 yrs. and you should base it on 2000-2005. Is it the "Game of the Century" so far. You are judging it on the future and some people are judging it on the past. It will be a good game regardless of the label.

Last year there were 4 out of 5 Heisman finalists. You had two Heisman quarterbacks facing each other along with two of the best running backs in college football (who also were Heisman finalists). Oklahoma may not have been #2 the entire season, but there was a revenge factor too because a lot of people thought that USC, not Oklahoma, should have been in the National Championship game the year before. People have short memories because this game is just as hyped as the one last year.

MorKnolle
01-04-2006, 03:39 PM
Yes, last year featured the #1 and #2 teams throughout the entire season and four of the five Heisman finalists. I thought similarly last year that OU's defense was great and their offense would be able to match up with USC's pretty well, and they lost in a landslide, so I'm sticking with:
USC 45
UT 30

I'm sure you do love it considering that USC has a better run D than Texas.

USC gives up on average 117.3 yards per game on the ground
Texas gives up on average 124.7 yards per game on the ground

Better get ready for the two headed monster of Bush and White.

01-04-2006, 07:03 PM
Let me throw in 2 cents I have to give the edge to Texas by two TD's. USC simply doesn't have the defense this year. They barely beat a mediocre Notre Dame team and slid past a couple other softies. I still can't believe they gave coach of the year to Weis considering I think they beat one team with a winning record and lost to a 5-6 Michigan St. at home. It hacks me off they robbed JoePa like that because of the Irish tradition. :brickwall

Dear Vince,

Thank You,
All Texan fans

No, go back for your senior year. Be as careful as you can, win the Heisman if possible, and we'll be waiting for you when the 2007 draft gets here.

Add the bonehead lateral to the block he missed, and it seems everytime he gets the ball if there's not a hole big enough to drive a Mack truck through, he tries to cut it to the outside, and both times I saw him do it UT's defense brought him down for a loss.

UT runs an option at times, and that play was definitely an option.

I'm not sure who the RB was who scored the TD off of the lateral, but if he wasn't running the option, then why didn't he get out in front of VY, and make some blocks? His place was to stay behind VY and watch for that lateral.

USC's defense has just come apart. This has the potential to get ugly so I'm glad we're sitting here right at the end of the first half. If they all go into the locker room and chill out now we might have a game in the second half.

If this was the middle of the second quarter or the beginning then I think we'd be looking at a 21 point UT quarter or something along those lines. The only reason this doesn't turn into a blowout is that USC gets saved by the halftime whistle.

And I'm not saying USC couldn't come back, just that we're on a huge UT "Mo' wave right now that shows no sign of stopping on it's own.

i hate to say this...but vince young looks ready to be an nfl quarterback.....making throws, calm in the pocket, making plays with his legs........i would take him over carr, and i've never said that before

I have to agree with you. Looks calm, like he's been on the big stage before.

Draftdaddy.com has him ranked in top 11-17 top TE prospects in the country.

oh come on there is no WAY you can compare that game to this, this is a GREAT game

I admit it. I wasn't even looking forward to last night's game but I can't remember seeing two defenses dominate like that in a while. The Texans should take a serious look at some of those guys, especially Hali. I've just been stirring the pot a little but there is nothing like watching USC get so exposed.

I guess ESPN is going to have to go back and think who the 2005 Trojans could have beaten.

2005 Nittany Lions No
2005 LSU Tigers No

i hate to beat a dead horse here, but Leinart plays behind a GREAT O-line.

Carr was a STUD QB when he was drafted. After years of hearing footsteps, you can't expect him to have pocket poise. One of the biggest jobs facing the new coach is going to be to turn Carr back around and make him live up to his potential.

He is so used to hearing footsteps and then picking himself up off the turf, he is a bit gun-shy. I can't say I blame him.

Anyone know where David Thomas is projected to be picked? :drool: now theres something we argee on, I was completely sold on thomas on one play I saw of him this year, he had the complete open field after he caught the ball and the safety was bearing down on him, but instead of running into the open field he ran straight for the safety and lowered his shoulder and absolutely laid him out, granted it knocked him off balace and he fell down six yards later, but I liked the toughness, he is a football player, man this is a long sentence.

I wonder...if the Horns win will Vince feel like it's time for the NFL?

Or if they lose (Heaven forbid!) will he come back for a possible run at the championship and that elusive Heisman?

He's a very mature young man. I do believe he would do fine in the NFL if he were to leave.

I know what you mean, I have to protect our Brad Pitt from haters, but I won't do that anymore. He is inconsistent. He can play great with a lot of pressure, and come back next week and play badly with a lot less pressure (JAX). Something I still like about him is that he has only thrown one or two interceptions under Palmer, not counting tipped ball. His accuracy and arm strength is definitely elite, but he does not have pocket prescence. I hope he gets a good QB coach under the coaching staff.

Superstars SHINE on the big stage. VY is showing that he is a SUPERSTAR, IMO.

Someone earlier said Bush looks like he's playing NOT to get hurt, and that might make the Texans think twice about picking him.

The Colts took Edgerrin James over Ricky Williams with the pick they got from STL for Marshall Faulk. Not a popular decision on draft day, but it turned out OK. LOL.

hang tough, man. I think that some improvements on the O-line (Martz would help with coaching) Carr will be just fine.

I worry that he's already been ruined by Capers and his lackadaisical approach to losses. Only time will tell.

You're right almost 150 all purpose yards in the first half is a really bad game.

If that lateral is completed rather than dropped, it was a highlight reel play. Some times you complete them, some times you don't. This time he didn't.

What about the plays where he has run between the tackles, or the one in the beginning of the game where he ran through the defender rather than around him?

He ran between the tackles once that I saw through a hole a Mack truck could have driven through. 104 of his yards are from receptions and kick returns. What he has done out of the backfield has not impressed me enough to use the #1 overall pick on him.
