This is my one rant, then I'll get back to basking in the glow that is.
Matt Leinart is not only a bitch, but a sore loser. "I still think we're the better team, but they made the plays." The problem with that statement, asshole, is that the better team makes the plays. Later, Leinart went to the UT locker room and congratulated Vince and Mack. Good show of sportsmanship. But on National TV, he dogs the team that just beat him. What a cowardly punk.
As for Pete Carroll, I have a tremendous amount of respect for Coach Pete Carroll. Not only is he a fantasic coach, but a very humble and honorable man. He deferred the post game comments to Texas and said that it's their night. Because they earned it. For that he earned my respect.
