Thoughts on a strange BCS title game


Pete Carroll made a great prediction when he said the first few minutes of the game would be crazy and was he ever right.

1)The fake punt interception - the fake was totally out of character for us, especially with the field position

2) Colt McCoy getting hurt on the fifth play.

3) The botched kick-off and turnover.

The first few minutes were crazy and then the game settled down. Bama took the game over mid-way through the first quarter through the end of the half. I have to admit if McCoy doesn't get hurt we are probably down at least 10 after the two turnovers. But then the TD by Dareus at the end of the half also sort of messed us up more than it did Texas because we lost our intensity. I thought even the defense lost it when we gave up the two big plays on the slip screens.

It is true that losing McCoy effected both sides of the ball for Texas but it also effected BOTH TEAMS. Bama went conversative in playing calling and got relaxed and almost blew the game. But in the end the game was won by the same way most of games were won - defense and the running game. The defense making the big play at the end with the sack and Ingram powering it for the win. (Gladly the defense and running rose up because our passing game was pathetic Thursday night - South Carolina game pathetic!!)

Glad to be a Bama fan and thankful for a national championship. Hope we are all rejoice and not worry about next year right now. Lets enjoy this one for a while.
