Beating the 10th ranked team in the nation is "performing poorly"??
Must be a Sooners fan...
really? They set a Fiesta Bowl record with almost 500 yds of total offense.
i guarantee you USC wouldnt have hammered that Ohio state team on a neutral field. did you miss the part where terrell pryor barely played in the first game? the defense was much improved and beanie wells didnt play?
so its all about winning convincingly to you? if it was about that, OU would have gone undefeated because they blasted everyone, but thats not how it works, its about players making plays when it matters most, like tebow showed today and colt has shown again and again.
That's rediculous. USC lost to an inferrior team. Texas lost to a top 5 team on the road. Texas came from behind to beat a very tough Ohio State team. USC beat Penn State who has zero offense.
And for the record, Utah had the most impressive win beating Alabama who was number one for a good period of time, and they beat Bama in all phases.
I'm not saying USC couldn't have beaten either of these teams but I am saying that they didn't deserve to be there more then Texas did.
then again, I know I'm never going to hear an OU fan say Texas deserved it so it's cool. I understand how it goes.
Well thats all we have his opinions on it, because they dont play a real championship game.
Pac 10 was 5-0 in bowl games, Big 12 was 4-3. IMO USC was the best team in the country all yr, save one slip up on the road on Thursday night.
I'm an SEC guy, but dont think Florida was the best team this yr.
I'm not sure the Buckeyes couldn't have beaten both these teams CC.
Hell No !!!!!!!!!!!!
yeah u played them at home.......they didnt have Beanie Wells...and Pryor was just beginning his college career. Everything was in your favor for that game.
you know OSU is a totally different team with Beanie in there. Even with Beanie....Texas was only down 6-3 at the half. If not for Colt pulling a Romo, it could have been 6-6.
You like 24-14 better then 45-35?
ya, for real, people ehre are acting like we were playing akron and not THE ohio state university. i think theyll beat USC next year and win the big ten
Funny, cause Texas was the best team in the country till one slip up. They were 8 seconds away from being undefeated. Can USC say this?
I would have loved another shot at Florida!
Texas would have beat the Gators tonight....
If it wasn't for OU 1st half coaching stupidy the Sooners would have won...
I do too.
Can't wait to see Pryor next year with more experience.
they did almost come back and win that game up there you know
hey its splitting hairs here...I do agree Texas deserved a shot before OU, no questions asked...and Texas probably would have beat Florida
I just think USC would have beaten any of them
