I'm having trouble figuring out why the media is so dead set on finding reasons that Texas is unworthy of it gift of a BCS title shot, while close wins by Florida and Bama throughout the season have not been punished in the same manner.
Is Auburn an obviously far superior team than aTm? So much so that a close win by Bama (in a low scoring affair) over Auburn, is more impressive than an all out offensive close win by Texas over aTm?
I'm obviously a Horns supporter, but things like this article seem to want to draw more comparisons to our 2001 team than our 2005 team. (It's worth pointing out that in this article he mentions our clear path to the MNC in 2001, even though that path was not clear until minutes before kickoff of the Big XII Championship game, when Tennessee lost).
Also, is it wrong that I relish the underrating and lack of respect being bestowed upon us by the rest of the nation? I almost want to suffer through the Tebow felating that the media is about to drop on us for the next month, just to shut them up in Pasa-get down-dena.
One last meandering thought. Would you rather face Alabama or Florida in the MNC game? I'd vote for Bama, because I think both defenses are stout, but that we would definitely score more points than them...too simple?
