    I don't think so. Texas defense is awesome.

    I don't know about that. A&M had a pretty good day against them. & so has a couple of other teams this year. Nebraska's offense made Texas look good last night.

    I'm not saying Texas is bad deffensively... I'm just saying I don't know that they are all that. Alabama looks pretty balanced on offense, & stout on Defense.

    I just don't think this is going to be a high scoring game. Probably more along the lines of Last nights 13-12 win.

    Alabama has a stronger running game than Texas by far. But if Texas can get it's passing game cranked up, Alabama could be in for a long night. I know that a lot of people around base their perspectives almost entirely on the last game played by a team, but Colt McCoy has some very impressive passing statistics for this season. Some people may have forgotten already, but Colt McCoy was in fact the leading candidate for the Heisman trophy just 24 hours ago. Here is a link to McCoy's statistics at ESPN:

    http://scores.espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=175772

    And everyone should try to keep in mind, both of these teams have been inconsistent on offense this year, not just Texas.

    In any case, the defenses are likely to rule the day for this match-up. Offense sells tickets, but defense wins championships. The team with the better defense on this day will go home with a national title.

    Bama's D aint no joke either.

    What ought to worry Texas fans is that the 'Horns have been a slow starting offense ALL SEASON.

    If 'Bama's D holds up and gets field position and puts 2 TD's up first...could be game.

    Florida was a great team and got ANNIHILATED last night. What non-poof team has Texas ANNIHILATED this year.

    A&M - No

    OU - NO

    Tech - Dude, UH beat them before losses to UCF and UTEP...UH has NO D and still beat them.

    OSU - Again....not like they were even a great team as it turns out.

    I will root for Texas and am not hoping they lose by any means. But as I am not a Longhorn fan, I feel like I am seeing them for what they really are. I want to see UT win only so the VY n*t guzzlers here in Austin forget about him and demanding that Titan games be played on TV here. That's my prize if Texas wins. I want the whole city of San Francisco....err....uh,.,....Austin to finally fully commit to leg humping Colt.

    Here's praying he wins the Heisman, wins the National Championship, gets drafted #1 overall...TO AN NFC TEAM!!!!!!! AAAhhhhhh what a scernario that would be!:smiliedance:

    It kinda depends on which Bama and which Horns teams showup.

    If the Bama that played Tennessee or Auburn shows up, then they are not the feared Bama. If the Texas that played A&M shows up they will get rocked. However, if we see the Texas D that played Oklahoma or Oklahoma State, it will be a solid game.

    Remember, that each side will have over a month to prepare for this one game. There will be time to rest injuries and get healthy. I think it will be a good low scoring game and the winner will come down to which D can make that last big stop.

    I think it will be a 20's 20's game. With the difference coming in the special teams.

    based on horns last two games, Alabama should kick their teeth in.

    But why would you base it on only the Horns last two games?

    The Texas defense has had one bad showing in 13 games. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that the A&M game was the aberration and not the other way around.

    I'll have more to say about the game as it gets closer. This last game was too exhausting for me to even care about the next one yet.

    One thing I will say is this: NOBODY gave Texas a chance when they played USC. Remember what happened?

    After watching the replay, Texas will "find a way" to win.

    Colt McCoy is the new Vince Young. He just wins games. Period.

    There's no team that deserves a bid more than UT. There are a few that are as deserving, but again, someone gets screwed every year. Last year it was Texas' turn to get robbed. This year it's TCU's (I don't buy the Cincy/Boise arguments. Those teams haven't beaten anyone either. They will get squashed when they face a team with speedy recruits on D).

    Sure the Big 12 had a down year. But invalidating UT's undefeated season and snubbing a top 2 team on the nation's longest winning streak because their opponents had an injury plagued season is like saying the Rockets titles don't count because the NBA was in rebuilding mode. No one deserves it more than they do.

    I am very worried about Texas' line, which has had a tendency to get abused against top notch D Lines. I think Texas' defense has been ignored all year. People constantly make excuses (Nebraska just doesn't have any offense. Apparently OSU, Missouri, and Texas Tech have no offense either) and overlook the tenacious and talented players that Muschamp has molded into a top unit. I'm expecting a defensive game myself, and I am not certain that Texas wins. But I don't think Texas gets blown out. They earned their spot.

    Bullshit. Name me another team that gets away with what they did last night. Pure and simple bullshit. Was there 1 second left? Yes. Is there another team that would get the call? Hell no and you know it.
