As of Halloween, the Horns have shown they are a very realistic contender for the National Championship, more so than any time this season. While there are still four games left in the regular season and one to follow in the Big XII Championship game, we're looking at all the other top ranked teams, trying to determine who the likely participants will be in Pasadena, wondering if and when they are going to lose a game.
I realize the importance of not getting ahead of ourselves - one game at a time. But, each week I am watching all these other teams, learning about them, trying to decide who would give Texas the hardest time.
As of right now, I can't decide. Most people seem to immediately assume Florida will be there and are the faves to win it. I'm not sure I buy that. Alabama has looked very strong most of this season, although that Tenn game has left a bad taste in our mouths, so we lose sight of that. How about the other undefeated teams? Do any of them pose a threat to Texas if they were to meet in the MNC?
Again, don't want to get ahead of ourselves, but I plan to watch each of these teams even closer in the coming weeks to see what we might be up against.
