We should have had Florida vs. Utah. The BCS draw was unfair to Utah, and they should have had their chance for the title.
too bad

pretty sure that last line is going to draw the ire of the Drunken', I mean Fightin' Irish fans ...

National championship? The game was a bore. Texas-Utah would have been a lot more interesting...and deserving.

would not have minded seeing UF vs utah but texas vs utah in no way was more deserving...

and as far as boring? Your kidding right? UF in the first half has to withstand two OU drives at the goal line? Then second half both teams turn it up and game is not decided until the final 3 minutes of the game...

After seeing OK play a few games this season and listening to the announcers talking about their quick set hurry up offense, I found Oklahoma's game plan a bit unusual. Oklahoma's offense would start to call a play, the whole team would stand up in unison snd stare at the sidelines like slack jawed yokels for 20 seconds, than proceed.

Big game Bob indeed.

I dont know why but I love to see Stoops keep losing. The ego playcalling of four straight runs into the teeth of the defense, and the failure to adjust at halftime. Change his nickname to Big-Game(not!) Bob. Stubborness in playcalling---looks like Lovie!

Ummmm, why was Texas left out of the poll for the #1???? They also beat Oklahoma and we won our bowl game. We should have been in that game against Florida!

I'm born and raised SEC but this could be a 4 way tie among UF, Tex, Utah, and USC (although UF did play 14 games).
Let's see, 4 teams...how would you fix that?!

Ya, thanks for the pot shot on the Irish. Classy move, loser.
