Let’s talk Bama-Texas

Kickoff is less than 20 minutes away and I’m picking Alabama to beat Texas 24-13. An Alabama victory would give the SEC it’s fourth straight national championship.

I’ll share a few thoughts as the game unfolds. I’ll be interested to read your take on the game .

Let’s start here. I just don’t think Texas is going to be able to block Alabama’s defensive front well enough to give quarterback Colt McCoy any room to operate. Am I wrong?

Man, Texas has a good D. BAMA QB is not doing much of anything. This is probably the most boring NC game in recent memory.

BAMA is lucky McCoy is down. Otherwise, BAMA would be lucky to be close.

SEC wheres the proof

LSU beats OSU, FL beats OSU and OU, Bama beats Texas. Yeah, yeah, SEC is best.

What is OSU’s record in big games since they cheated (Dan Fouts…bad call, bad call, bad call) in the Miami game.

Stoops is 0-5 in last 5 BCS games. The Oregon game was not a BCS game was it?

Texas (Mac Brown) had done what in big games….1 NC. Correct me if I am wrong.

Give Texas credit. The defense has stepped up and kept the Longhorns in the game. Gilbert finally gets the big play and now it’s 24-13. Now what does Alabama do? Ingram left the game with a tweaked ankle. Does he come back?

True Crimson and South… thanks for trying to answer my questions! I am really disappointed that Tony doesn’t have enough class to respond! He has really defined himself in this readers eyes tonight! I will go back to Bradleys site at least he responds! You may not agree but he responds! And he has MANY MANY more people who blog on his site! I guess I know why now!
Go BAMA! Great job of representing the SEC!!! See you! Out of here!

This game after 3 qtrs does not leave a good taste in your mouth at all. We won’t get the pleasure of a real win with McCoy and the way Bama is laying down. I agree this is poor NC game.

These two announcers are clowns. I’ve always know Herbstret is a Big 10 homer, but his bias against the SEC is really showing. Watch Bama take it 80 yards to shut them up.

Still no comments from the announcers on Ingram, the Heisman trophy winner, not being in the game. This is worst coverage than FOX using NFL announcers to do the other bowl games.

Let’s get real, Lets get real – it’s got nothing to do with class. Tony is busy covering the game, and doesn’t have time to sift through comments on a blog that’s intended to be about the national championship game, and not an open forum for questions about next season.
