BCS National Championship
#1 Alabama vs #2 Texas
I was listening to the rants of Jimmy Johnson and Marshall Faulk about how people at TCU feel like they were robbed of the chance to play in the national championship. They must have known pretty well that if Texas won that Texas would pretty much be a lock for the championship. I guess they will have to do as Utah did last year and go to their senator and waste everyone’s time.
This matchup seems like it will either be one for the ages much like the last one Texas played in, or it might be a blow out. One thing is for sure if Bama plays like they did against Florida and is Texas plays as they did against Nebraska it will not be very good for us Texas fans.
#7 Oregon vs #8 Ohio St.
This is probably the most exciting bowl besides the national championship in the BCS bowls. I will be playing my chips on Oregon to win this one. Mainly because I never ever go for Ohio St. (just dont like em) Both teams were strong down the stretch but Oregon seems to be flying high since they got their act together as a team and being coached by Chip Kelly didn’t hurt them either. Ohio St. needs a massive performance from Terrell Pryor to even seem to have a chance in this game. The Buckeye defense even as good as they are will have trouble against this Duck offense that can pretty much score anytime and with many different people.
#3 Cincinnati vs #5 Florida
Florida is in dangerous territory when coming into this Sugar bowl. Much like the Oklahoma vs Boise St and Utah vs Bama games, they must not sulk and say they deserve more. Cincy is ready to lay the wood to each opponent it comes up against and they will not back down when they face the Gators. This might turn out to be a great game but I am not holding my breath, Urban Meyer doesnt lose too often and coming off of an SEC loss the Bearcats will have their hands full with a newly resolute Tim Tebow and company to face.
#4 TCU vs #6 Boise St.
I will anxiously be awaiting this game. I know Austin doesnt agree with me on how exciting this game will be but I so so so want to watch Boise St. lose. I hate them and I hate how they have become such a fake by playing so many horrible schools. Yes they get good wins off once or twice a year. I refuse to respect a team that makes its name off of a weak conference. On a sidenote I would totally back up a conference shift to take teams like Boise St. and TCU out of their conference just to promote more competition in strong conference (i.e. more conferences like the SEC)
TCU does not deserve to be in the national championship but I do believe they should have been #3 in the BCS and not shaved out by Cincy. Oh well guess all you can do is sit back and wait for things to work themselves out in their own bowls.
#9 Georgia Tech vs #10 Iowa
Probably the least exciting bowl out of all the BCS games this year. Zeekgeek made the point to me that Iowa travels well but I dont think that will help out to get me interested in this matchup. I want Iowa to win this one because I just think the ACC is laughable this season and is even more laughable at BCS games this decade. Honestly I think Iowa needs Stanzi to come out with the victory but I guess anything can happen.
