I don't think Texas is as great as everyone makes them out to be. A&M, who has no defense, played them close. Nebraska, who has no offense, played them close. Their offense also struggled against Oklahoma, who is another great defensive team. I just don't think their offense is as great as everyone makes it out to be. Its too dependent on McCoy and they need a running game.
'bama played lights out against Florida. If they play like that in a month, then they'll be unbeatable. Both coaches have coached a nat'l championship team, but my leg up is to 'bama. Offense wins games, defense wins championships. I think 'bama's defense is better than Texas's offense. But again, this isn't going down for another month, so God knows what will happen. Fortunately both coaches have been there and done that, but they might as well be playing the first game of the season.
That being said, I'm hoping Texas Wins. I went to Texas A&M, and during the regular season, I want nothing more than to beat Texas, but once the bowl season comes around, I'm rooting for the Big 12.
I honestly would rather see TCU play 'bama or Texas. I honestly can't stand the BCS system and we need some sort of playoff. People keep arguing the regular season is a playoff, but we have 5 undefeated teams. The TCU vs Boise State match up is a cop out. TCU vs Florida would have been a better match up b/c we need to see what this team can do against the Big Boys. This won't happen when they play Boise State. BCS System blows and for a sport that features such an exciting regular season, it always ends on a down note every year b/c of the BCS bowl game selection process.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.
