My main concern is how the BCS screwed Tech back into UT/OU shadows. At the end of the season, all three teams assumed to be 11-1 are equal in records.
I know we lost to OU. Big time. Still, the records show that our boys accomplished 10 games in a row. Better in streak than UT/OU and identical record.
Come on. Tech was #6 when we beat UT at #1. Now we are #7.

The Big 12 needs a playoff in event of 3way ties. Still the problem is: 3 teams in one game?

Cotton Bowl games used to be cool back the SWC days. Now, Tech vs LSU just doesn’t seem so great of a matchup. Even Ol Miss, who beat Florida and almost beat Alabama, carries a 7-4 record.
11-1 doesn’t mean anything if you are up against two powerhouse ex champion teams in your conference of equal standing?

So, Alabama is still no.1. and not lost a game. This is so sad because everyone knows how SCARED they would be if they had to play the USC Trojans. Only because Troy plays a pair of atrocius teams in Notre Dame and the Bruins is Alabama escaping an automatic defeat. That's the only sad truth. Enjoy your championship even as SC lays 80-0, 74-3 beat downs to end the season.

USC is not scary.
Neither is Alabama really. If only Texas, Tech or Oklahoma all had chances to play Alabama Florida and USC in regular season games.
Final records of all teams would be badly bruised by losses.
SEC would learn that Big 12 has what it takes to compete.
