They were talking about this on 97.5 the other day. The point they were bringing up is the loser of the game still has a good shot if they win the rest of their schedule. As we know with college ball losing late in the year hurts more than losing early. You drop down in polls, etc., with little to no time to move back up.
So if A&M wins out the rest of the way and beats LSU and Alabama loses to LSU you could end up with a 3-way tie in the West. How it is decided from there who knows. None have amazing out of coference schedules. So LSU is the key for both at this point.
In any case, much props to Manziel. Hell of a game and gutsy effort. He is proving to be as good as advertised whether you like the guy or not. I still miss the days of the Wrecking Crew. That defense has issues to say the least but it will probably change in time. A game like that pulls recruits in comparison to what the Horns are doing right now.
Think it's time to hop on the fire Mack Brown train unless he pulls a miracle out of somewhere.
