If we somehow make it to the MNC game...

Big if, but if somehow everything breaks the right way, is Texas good enough to win a NC?

Texas has played great and im real proud of the overachieving season weve witnessed.  The defense is mean, the offense is doing what it needs to do. 

However...

Is this team ready for a stage so large?  I think Bama, and Tech are beatable.  The Gators look good though.  Now many will say "what do you mean are we ready?  We are texas.  Why would you turn down a chance to play for it all?" . Let me be clear if we get that shot, then great.  But if not perhaps its a little blessing in disguise.  This program is building momentum.  If we get pantsed in the title game (see OSU 06, 07), all that momentum comes to a halt, or at least set back.  On the other hand, if we go to the fiesta bowl, take care of business, build some more confidence, national respect, we are in good position for the real drive to the title in 09.

The team still needs to improve.  The defense is coming around still and the full potential of our new offensive playmakers (williams, whittaker, etc) has not been reached.  We need a little more seasoning.

I guess what I'm asking is at the end of the day, line up texas with the best in the country, on a neutral field, can they take anyone down?  Can you say it definitively? 

And please dont call me out for being a doubter, this is just something I ponder.
