    Alabama D > Nebraska D? I'd bet Texas puts up more than 13 against the Tide. Bama is good...but I have not seen them be as dominant as the Huskers were tonight.

    Ok, but if it were a 4 team playoff, wouldn't the team that got left out be screaming? 8 team playoff? Oregon? Florida? Ohio St.? Ga. Tech? Somebody good gets left out and is screaming?

    Texas has never impressed me all that much. They weren't very good last year in the Fiesta Bowl against OSU, with our defense handling them pretty easily for the majority of the game.

    They're a solid team, but Alabama will smoke them off the field. Mount Cody is going to be running through that line all day long.

    Apparently, the decision to review the last play and put a second back on the clock was in violation of NCAA rules. Awesome.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    It can be argued that, despite the game today, Alabama also hasn't seen an offense as good as Texas. Florida has not exactly been lighting up the scoreboard this year. And remember: last week, Bama actually got beat up at the line of scrimmage pretty good by Auburn until the Tigers got a bit too conservative in the second half.

    I think Alabama is the best team in the country. I mean that. But I'll actually be somewhat surprised if Texas doesn't win. Just a good hunch.

    Really? If that's true, is that grounds for a protest?

    I don't feel too badly for Nebraska, as it did appear there should have been a second left. But on the other hand... if the rules didn't permit for that, the game by technicality should have been over and there would not have been a reason to review the clock.

    Ah okay. I don't know if a half second is considered egregious, but there is at least some wiggle room in there for the officials now.

    Clearly a second should've been put back on the clock, I don't see what the big deal is.
    because at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up--Marty B.

    You really have to feel for TCU, they were basically in the National Championship game and had it taken away.
