BCS: What A Finale
That was some serious college football last night.
Though I was obviously rooting for the UT Longhorns, I give great kudos to the Alabama Crimson Tide in their victory. The Tide was definitely on a Roll.
I give many kudos to UT senior QB and Heisman trophy finalist, Colt McCoy, who had to sit back and watch his last game as an active player for the Longhorns from the sidelines after an injury at the start of the game. I know that could not have been easy, but once back from the locker room, there he was, fully suited and cheering on his team.
Also outstanding, freshman QB Garrett Gilbert who got rolled through the 1H of his Walter Mitty-like college football debut before turning it on in the second half to almost send the tide rolling in the other direction.
Without that late 4Q blindside, who knows what might have happened. But due credit also goes to the Alabama defense…those guys were like a human Maginot line last night and all season, but one that you could hardly ever flank.
Regardless of the outcome, I think both teams demonstrated why they both absolutely deserved to be in the BCS Championship game and, in the process, gave all of us a joyride that we’ll certainly not soon forget.
I also enjoyed all the social media smack talk that was going on across the country and around the globe.
I love American college football, and based on the Twitterstream last night, apparently I wasn’t the only one!
