Well hopefully it is. It would be a shame that after all this time and the hype buildup that one team would blow out the other one. Not expecting USC vs. Texas like last year but hopefully it's a good competitive game.

That was the best college game I have seen (along with Boise State and Oklahoma). The game starts at 7:15.

I really don't see how the Tebow run works. Everybody used to talk about how we needed a everydown TE so we wouldn't tip off plays, what the hell about a QB that runs the draw 80% of the time he comes into the game. I just don't understand how they have success with that at all.

Well after Landry missed that tackle on the reverse in the Sugar Bowl, many said that they wanted Nelson now. Well that was a terrible attempt on Pittsman TD run (twice now that I have seen him take a bad angle). I guess maybe we should look at corner, or is Landry moving back up.

I agree, Nelson looks as if he relies too much on his speed, that is the only thing that can explain his bad angles. As for OSU, looks like there is too much speed out there for them & they're having trouble keeping up. I look for OSU to rebound in the 2nd half when Florida gets a little tired.

How is Florida supposed to get tired, their defense has been on the bench most of the game. OSU has speed out of a couple of players on O, Florida from what I've seen has a boat load of more team speed.

I will say this though, I doubted Florida, I really didn't see them as a elite team this year and I was wrong. I'm just glad the voters were wise enough to give them a chance, especially after watching the Rose Bowl. Imagine how many times they probably don't get it right and how many teams don't get to go to the game. LSU vs. Florida at this point would of been a better game, but this issue isn't going to be resolved and were not going to be gauranteed the best matchup until a playoff is in place.

Didn't think he was a number one pick before this game and certainly don't think so now. His stock plummetted today big time.

Even though Brady stunk too, don't think that his reputation will be soiled enough to drop him out of the top five.

Rooting for Florida, but would have been nice for the Texans to see Troy play well. Want to see people taking enough of these picks infront of us to help our picks!

4 of 13 thirteen how the heck did this guy stay a starter, my god.

nice kick there though

Ted Ginn Jr. I think the Heisman guys got the correct team...wrong guy. So can I assume now that Tatter Tot is off the #8 wish list ?

Its all a toss up.. aside from LSU and Florida, the Bowl perfomances this year were really mediocre. The overall lousy play brought down the stock in several players. They had a chance to stand out, and blew it.

Last year's Texas team beat this year's Ohio State team? I must have missed it.

Florida played very well today - their lines dominated. Very impressive.

By the way, your original statement was that neither team in this year's championship team deserved to be on the field with either of last year's teams. Do you stand by that too?

Give me a break, Nor Ohio State or Florida could compete with the teams that took the field last year.

You're right; it was a tough loss to end a pretty succesful year. I'd be careful - you've been complaining about arrogance the whole thread. Aren't you a Texas fan though?

Dear ESPN,
Thank you for hyping me up like my predecessor, Reggie Bush, so I could win the Heisman and my team could be hyped to tremendous proportions.

Signed,
Troy Smith

P.S: Brady Quinn says "thanks," too, we talked about it at the Heisman ceremony.

never said they did, you know that. just saying the media calling this the game of the century after last years was a joke.

Yep, (However I didn't say they didn't DESERVE to be on the field with them, that they just wouldn't be able to compete with them. If they got there they deserve to be there, anyway) Ohio D looked absolutely terrible, Texas had to stop L. White, R. Bush, and Matt Lienart.

Ohio state had to stop avg. at best backs and a QB running up the middle for miminal gains for a rushing game and Leak who played a mistake free game, but dink and dunked all over the field and floated alot of passes

I don't mean to sound arrogant and am not trying to disrespect Ohio State or Florida, both are GREAT GREAT programs, just that the media calling it the game of the century was a joke. I really don't understand why media feels why they have to overhype games. Just let the game itself sell itself. The media certainly didn't do OSU any favors in this game.

Anyways congrats Forida.........great win 2007 NCAA National Champs.

OK. You just pointed to this post:

There is no doubt in my mind the Texas team of last year would of beat this years OSU team.



Vince simply would not be denied in that game, plus our secondary and ovrl. defense was much better. Last years team was a much better team


I certainly never supported this as the game of the century though. Those things are best defined AFTER the fact.

I don't think the average OSU fan should be confused with ESPN hype. I doubt the average fan of any team could live up to that.

I'm not blaming the fans.

Hell even I'll admit I was wrong about this game. I thought it was going to be a blowout just, didn't expect it to be a blowout over OSU.

By the way did they ever go into the extent of Ted Ginn's injury. That was a huge blow to them. He opens stuff up all over the field.

I didn't hear any more about Ginn. His loss definitely hurt - not 27 points worth though. I think his threat and performance would have kept OSU's offense on the field a little more. He was a key piece to go down.

I'm outta here.

I wish their was a playoff system. I think having 51 days off affected Ohio State. In a playoff, both teams would have came in fresh.

I was actually hoping he had a bad Ntl Championship so he could fall to the second rd....If he's there when were on the clock with the 40th pick, I hope we take him....

I think he can be good. A little coaching under Kubiak, and we can have a mobile Drew Brees.

I agree he's not that bad. I think the comparison of Smith and a certain pro QB I saw posted earlier is a little weak. Smith is 10-2 against top 10 teams - last night was the exception, not the rule. If a person only considers one game the evaluation is a little skewed.

I doubt he'll ever end up here - if he falls to the second the Browns might pick him before he falls to us. I don't know if this would be a good place for him anyway.

As a Buckeye fan I'd like to see him go somewhere he'd have a better chance of succeeding. As a Texan fan I have no predictions of how we are going to approach free agency and the draft. I'm not too good at that because I don't watch enough college ball to have an opinion on more than a handful of players; regurgitating other people's opinions isn't my forte.
