    You gotta feel for the guy, He gets gypped out of a shot at the national title last year. And now after finally reaching the game he gets knocked out after just a few plays.

    I certainly hope so. It would be sweet for a Freshman to deny that midgit Saban another title.

    Texas wins this game easily with McCoy. I thought it would boil down to McCoy vs McElroy since both team's had good defenses, and thought McCoy was the much better option at QB. McElroy played the game of his life vs. Florida, he will never play like that again.

    Bama got extremely lucky to pull this one out. Shovel pass pick 6 with 18 seconds left in first half, true freshman QB, no real threat of a running game from Texas, and a costly fumble by Texas inside their own 10. Bama was not the best team in the nation this year. Florida was. And Texas was 2nd.

    Yup, Alabama got lucky tonight. But a win is a win.

    Tough one for Texas.

    Definitely a solid kid, good football player... See him in the NFL next year and hopefully that injury isn't too bad.

    Just like the Giants got lucky in 2007 hey. You take what you get in championship games. The record books don't care about what happened during the game.. they only care for the result.

    Actually, that would be Carlos Dunlap. Florida couldn't sniff McElroy all game. Much different from their defense thoughout the year. And, by the way, I'm a pretty big Gator fan and have watched damn year every single one of their games this season. Trust me when I say that Dunlap's loss made a huge difference.

    No more than for Tebow. Basically, he and McCoy got swept away when the Crimson Tide rolled in. We can only hope that they're out there somewhere, still alive.

    Injuries are part of the game though and you have to overcome them. Like tonight Texas could say they are better than Bama because McCoy got hurt, it just doesnt work that way. You have to prove it on the field

    Yeah... only Dunlap got a DUI and wasn't injured. Losing him would have been like Alabama losing McClain. To put it in Pats related terms, it would be like us losing Vince Wilfork then getting chewed up in the ground game. Sure, Alabama won the game and the championship. They deserve props. However, anybody that has watched the Gators and the 'Tide this year knows that the SEC Championship game would have looked MUCH different with Dunlap in. He is our best pass rusher, and I personally hope he falls to the Pats. With Dunlap in, McElroy doesn't have a career day and the Gator defense doesn't allow a season-high in yards and points. How anybody could say that Alabama would have still blown Florida out with him in is beyond me.

    Basically, it sounds like you're arguing just to see yourself argue here.

    Take into account that Florida was missing Dunlap. I'm not a fan of either team, so I'm being objective.

    McElroy played the game of his life that day. Florida's defense missed Dunlap and just didn't show up. I'd say if they played 10 times, Florida would have won 7 times.

    Yes I know the only thing that matters is the W. But I thought throughout the year Florida was a more complete team than Bama. Just because they outplayed them on one day doesn't say they are definitely the better team in my eyes. It's just like 2007. The Pats were by far the best and most complete team in the league that year, and the Giants beat them in the Super Bowl. Play that game 10 times, Pats win 9 times.

    To bad we don't have playoffs, would love to see BSU roll up the tide or any top team this year for that matter.

    Gratz to Bama on a great season, mabey next year BSU will get a shot at them.

    Put down the pipe. Boise is good, but they would get CRUSHED going up against Alabama or Florida. I'm not even sure they would beat Ole Miss. Still not sure why someone doesn't make a play for your head coach. He's done a good job with that program.

    I'm sure you were spewing the same bull**** before the Fiesta Bowl a few years ago, your argument is old and moot.

    We are 67-2 at home last 10 years, we are 14-0 this year(only OSU has done that in the BSC era) and we boast one of the great Coaches and QB's in college and young defenses.

    You can say that Bama and Texas and FL would smoke BSU but then again you say a lot of things........


    One Word!


    PLAYOFFS, lets see how big and bad all these big schools are lmao

    Wow. Were you waving your hands around with your middle and ring fingers curled around one another as you were saying that? It always amuses me how fans of teams from other conferences think that they can regularly compete and beat the teams in the SEC. I really wish Florida played in BSU's conference. They would have been undefeated for the past decade. I mean, I understand that you guys regularly have to go up against powerhouses like Nevada while we're stuck with going up against the LSU's, Tennessee's, Georgia's, and Alabama's of the world. But we can only play who is selected for us. :rolleyes:

    I'm sure you're reasonable enough to know that the SEC is just a LITTLE bit better than Boise's conference.

    Talk talk talk

    More Action! You can make all the excuses on why BSU is not in the same league as the SEC teams but all I see is talk talk talk.

    Make a playoff system and we don't even have to have this conversation.

    No.....lay off the pills man;)


    Is Oregon bad?
    Is OLK bad?
    Is TCU bad?
    Is BYU bad?

    We beat them all and we could beat any of the SEC teams, I would love to see FL or Texas come up and play in Idaho in the middle of Nov.....lmao come get some!

    I bet you thought the Rams would just roll over the Pat's in 01 uh? not in the same league bull****.....call yourself a Pat's fan lol:rolleyes:

    On any given sat or sun anything can happen, don't act like you know.....cause you don't.

    You're right. I'll get right onto setting up that playoff system. :rofl: By the way, Texas is not in the SEC. I really would have loved to see the Gators play Boise State this year. Then everyone up in Idaho can see what a speed advantage at every single position on the field looks like. Oklahoma got an up close look at it last year and Cincy got a good look at it this year. To put it simply, there is a reason why the SEC has won 4 straight National Titles and Boise's conference has not.

    Yawn. I really don't care. I highly doubt 90% of country cares about Boise State.

    Mid-major conferences don't get the merit they deserve, I'll give people that. I have always enjoyed watching games from Conference USA or MWC. But if anyone thinks teams from those conferences can play with the SEC or Big 12, well we saw what happened when Georgia crushed Hawaii a couple of years ago. People have to realize that the talent level and coaching in the SEC or Big 12 or even the Big 10 is much greater then the mid-majors. There are exceptions of course, but for the most part, the big name conferences get the glory.

    Teams are so angry with Shipley's performance. He just went from a 3rd rounder, to a high 2nd rounder after last night. He went from being a sleeper pick to a sexy slot receiver pick.

    A lot of those people who root for those teams do not see the type of talent that comes out of the high schools in the southeast, and in states like Texas and Oklahoma. It's incredible. I already gave Boise their props, but I'll do it again. What they've managed to do out there for the past decade is impressive. They've dominated and they've shown that they can compete and beat the bigger name schools such as Oklahoma and TCU. However, to think that they'd be able to compete in any SEC division is just, well, it's just idiotic. Like I said, there is a reason... a very good one... that the SEC has won the past four national championships. The talent level down here is supremely higher than the talent level in the mid-major conferences.
