I think Alabama will win, but I must go for Texas. (I lived there for about 3 years)

Predictions:

Not a good start by Alabama, but only down by 6 with 2 turnovers...they are dodging the big 6...And with McCoy out, there chances have to go up.

Should also mention that I know it is still very early.

And that is how fast games turn around. I'm looking for Alabama to start rolling. Especially with a backup QB on the opposition.

the game doesn't count anymore...Colt's out.

I'm so pissed right now.

Still a chance he'll come back in the second half. Might already be too late though.

"the game doesn't count anymore"

How does that work? Colt's injury is a bad deal, for sure, but I thought two football teams were playing for the championship. One player gets injured, and the game doesn't mean anything?

I don't think so. And I don't think you'd be saying that if it was Ingram who was injured.

I wouldn't take it so literal. It's not the same as having both teams firing on all cylinders and the better team wins. I know what you are saying, but I get what benjamin is saying too.

Jeff...google Colt shoulder injury. It will tell you plain as day the game no longer counts for anything.

Benjamin,
The game means the following:
Texas was a one man team. They lost their man. They'll be fourth behind FL and Boise State.
Sleep tight!

If you can't get hit by the big boys than you shouldn't be playing in the big game.

I was just kidding about the saying the game didn't count...BUT...when it's all said and done...Alabama wins, everyone will say "well Texas didn't have Colt" and take away from Alabama's win. I would rather see Alabama beat Texas with Colt in than beat a team with a severely inexperienced qb

getting interesting...
Personally, I'd love to see a true freshman QB take them to the promised land.

Ben, agreed on the comments if AL wins. There will always be an asterisk next to it. TX wins....not so much.

Bit of a momentum shift at the end of the 3rd. We'll see how long it lasts.

Officials are SCREWING Texas hard in this one. No pass interference against AL and then to just call a BS pass interference against TX. Gimme a freaking break!!

Hate to guess....but the way the TX defense is playing - TX would be up if Colt was not hurt. But, TX still has a shot! Another 3rd down stop just now! Woo hoo

Texas hanging in there. We have a ball game.

only down by 3 with a little over 6 min left.

Up the Texas defense to stop them now and leave enough time on the clock.

Here we go - getting the ball back with 3 plus minutes to go and a chance to win the game. Stuffed Ingram a few times nicely!!

Hats off to the young freshmen for such a strong second half.

bad time for a turnover

Not enough players on field during that last punt hence the timeout being called. Hold to a FG and still got hope.

makes sense then for the timeout. I'd have to say very little hope, but hope nonetheless.

Texas still had a chance even with the back up. Played good defense in the second half and were making a comeback until that fumble.

bama played one good quarter thinking they had it in the bag, but finished strong in the end. when your up by a good chunk at half you change the way you play. good game though.

That really makes me wonder what Texas could of done WITH Colt. Too bad we wont find out. I see Texas finishing 3rd. The didn't get owned like Florida did even with the back-up quarter back.

I wouldn't be too thrilled with nearly getting beat by a team who's qb was born in 1991 and was playing highschool ball last year...


I like Ingram though. He's a stand up guy and not a thug like some of the other up and comers

Just like a bitter Aggie to root against Texas in any situation. I always root for teams from TX in big games, unless they're playing UT. The only team I can't root for is OU.

I thought the receivers from Texas blew this game. Way too many dropped passes in very crucial periods of time. Even lost a touch down from the freshman, who hit the receiver right in the hands. Very next play he threw an interception.

I think Albama was very fortunate to win. That being said, Albama was definitely affected by Ingram cramping up in the 2nd half.

Exactly. Your OU is my Texas. Bitter? Texas lost their chance at winning a national championship and you think I'm bitter? Oh quite the opposite my friend!

I just can't stand Texas fans plus them winning does nothing good for future Aggie recruiting. Why would I route for them? Because I live in Texas? I also live in Dallas so am I obligated to route for SMU?

Some info on Colt making the decision not to come back in the game, that had to be so tough:

Colt had just lied to the Texas doctors and said that he was capable of returning to the BCS title game against Alabama. A hit by the Tide’s Marcell Dareus, on the fifth play of the game, had sent him to this locker room. He wanted back out there. So he tried to sound convincing despite the fact his arm felt “like a noodle.”...

So Colt gripped the ball, stared at his dad and thought, “It’s just a simple throw.” He threw. The ball went soft and wide. Everyone grimaced. “Give it to me again,” Colt demanded. Brad got the ball and gave it back to his son. The next throw was the same, bouncing harmlessly away. “Give it to me again,” Colt said, again. Brad did.

It was the same. It was over. Colt couldn’t throw it 7 yards to his own father. “My arm was dead,” he said. The dad hugged his son. The son broke down and cried.

“There’s no pain on my body,” Colt said later. “If I was a free safety, I’d go out there and make a tackle. I [just] have no strength to throw a football.”

Say all you want about Colt and his numb arm. Our QB was playing with cracked ribs. Nice job by the entire squad to keep that under wraps leading up to the game.
ROLL TIDE!!!

Alabama didn't show up for that game the way they did most of the season. So yes, Texas was without McCoy, but Texas didn't face a top 5 team in Bama lastnight either.

So in the end, all things given, the W went to the better overall team on the year. An arguement against those who want to "asterisk"the game or moan, "but Colt wasn't in the game."

No worries though, I know how you all feel. Eight games out of ten, Florida shows up and beats Alabama.

Therefore, I propose this as my hypothetical (making excuses) top 5:
1. Florida
2. Alabama
3. Boise State
4. Texas
5. BYU

Fair enough, Eubanks. Just don't understand all the hate that comes our way from such a close neighbor, especially when it goes largely unreciprocated. Inferiority complex, I guess.

Oh the irony! haha I just think Texas has the most arrogant fans out there and it was great to see them get theirs. I do like Colt though and definitely wish him the best. I don't think it is required of me as a Texan to route for Texas University.}

Did anybody get video of that "idiot" that security had to remove off the field? Was it some sort of streaker? They didn't show it up close by when they showed the entire bowl game zoomed out you could see someone scrambling around on the field.

Tings- You might be right about BYU. I don't know much about them but a Top 4 didn't sound right. They were kind of a ranked by association type deal. We can scratch them off.
