    He is sitting on Rome is burning, still claiming USC was a better team than Texas and gave the game away. He also says he should be the #1 pick

    Well, Matt, number #1 teams do not give games away. Teams that lose are not the best. It is fairly simple. You had better learn how to deal with losses and not dwell on them or your going to have a miserable time in the NFL. Using your thought process, i say the Texans are number #1, we just gave away fourteen games so we could draft your teamate #1.

    1) Carr gets dogged for not saying stuff like that.

    2) It was awfully close - a 2 yard gain by White would have changed a lot of things.

    3) I know a lot of Miami players said the same thing about Ohio State a couple of years ago. So what? OSU was still the champ.

    Hey Matt a Team consist of all facets of a "Team", Offense, Defense, and Special Teams. Texas was better is every facet of the game. When you have a OVERATED DEFENSE that is a liability to your team and was all year and in the end cost you the national championship, guess what you don't have the better TEAM.

    How about, We had a good run but just did not get it done. Hats of to Texas. There a great team. I expect to be drafted high in the first round. There are some good athletes, including my own teamate. I think there are a number of us who could be selected #1. I'm just thankful i will have the oppurtunity to play in the nfl and look forward to working hard to take my game to the next level.

    Miami had a legit gripe, They suffered the worst call in NCAA history.

    just out of curiosity, would you take 2005 USC, 2001 Miami, or 2001 OSU if the teams were to play again today? I only include OSU, because they beat Miami, but I feel 2001 Miami was the best college team ever.

    yes, but he had a 1st down already. Are you implying that UT would not have scored from 4 yards out with 4 chances?

    Talking about the pass interference call. That was one of the worst calls in a championship game i have ever seen.

    Do you really think USC would of stopped Texas on a 1st and goal from the 6 yard line. Texas also had a INT that wasn't called that would of ended one of USC's scoring drives.

    I know, I was just pointing out one of the calls. I truly think that Texas was the better team. That does not mean there was not some bad calls though.

    I have no doubt there are a handful of teams that want to jump to #1 to take Matt. But unless they give a sweet enough deal, then it wont get done.

    People mostly trade up for QB's, before RB's. History is on my side.

    bleh.. he is loyal to his team and feels that they are the best, even if they did lose to Texas..he feels they kept themselves from winning, not that they got beat.

    Can you really blame him? in your position wouldnt you feel the same way?

    He can keep saying that until the day he dies...but UT will still have the 2005 NC trophy.

    Matt is doing the same thing any competative person would do in a close lost. Thinking of things he should have and could have done differently to help them win. But it's too little too late. To me Vince showed he wanted it more.
