    It was insane. I had to keep reminding everyone around me that there still was another half to play. Both offenses didn't play as well as they should have, though. Tech could not move the ball in the red zone at all while Texas only moved the ball late in the game. Tech outplayed Texas, end of story. But that's the problem with trading field goals for touchdowns. Honestly, I'd be so pissed if Texas won, because we should have put the game away much earlier.

    Also, Texas' punter kicks like a damn girl. THAT was irritating as hell.

    I think Alabama is overrated and Texas Tech is the real deal this year.

    The Red Raiders still have one tough game to go, while the Crimson Tide has a couple of patsies.

    It will be hilarious to see the two in the BCS championship, if it happens.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I actually expect both of them to lose, tell you the truth. If both of them do win out, and they play each other in the championship game, I'd have to favor Tech. Tech is a great team... but I don't think they go into Norman and win, the way Oklahoma's been crushing everyone right and left lately (granted, not teams as good as Tech, but I wouldn't pick *anyone* to go to Norman and win now). If the game were in Lubbock I'd call it a toss-up (Tech was very impressive beating Oklahoma State). But not in Norman. Alabama is a very good team... a very good team that I think will lose to Florida in the SEC championship. I think the championship game will be:

    Texas Tech/Oklahoma/Texas (whoever comes out on top, tiebreaker-wise, obviously Tech is on top if they beat Oklahoma)

    vs.

    Florida

    I've got no clue who to pick as the winner of that game. Sentimentally, I'd pick Texas, but not confidently. USC's the only other team I'd give a good chance to beat any of those 4 on the field, but they won't get that chance - at least not in the championship game.

    I know Mizzou hasn't lived up to expectations, but should they play Tech in the Big 12 Championship, don't just assume the Raiders are going to win. Mizzou has OWNED Texas Tech the last few times they've played. Mizzou just seems to be a bad matchup for Tech.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Hmm, that's true - they have done well against Tech lately. Given that matchup, I'd *like* to see Mizzou win, too. Mizzou has another advantage... the conference championship is in KC this year, and although I'm sure a lot of Tech/Texas/Oklahoma fans would come, KC's just a couple of hours from Columbia - not quite but almost a home game.

    I agree with your analysis. And I think USC would beat Tech, Oklahoma, and Texas. They're just KILLING people. Florida is red hot, maybe not them.

    Watching all the big-confrence action really makes me pissed off that my hometown team (BSU) is in the WAC. Jesus the WAC sucks. The only moment of glory we had was when we took it to Oregon's house. Now we have to sit, wait out the last couple of absurdly easy matchups we got and cross our fingers for a generous BCS Bowl matchup. :steam:
