Conference Championship weekend thoughts...

First, the Heisman will be won this weekend.  Whether it is Spiller in the ACC, Tebow or Ingram in the SEC, or McCoy in the Big 12, whichever player has the best game wins the Heisman.  Spiller is more of a throw-in after his loss to SC, but he is still an incredible player on such an average team.  The rest are pretty solid on solid teams.

Second, the TAMU game was not an establishing of a now-vulnerable Texas Defense.  Muschamp & our defense resembles the Omnidroid from The Incredibles, we just learn and get better when a weakness is exposed.  Tebow can lick his chops all he wants, we won't be fooled twice.  Had Griffin been healthy and played for Baylor a few weeks back, we would have faced a running/throwing QB before A&M.  That's the main reason Johnson got the deserved jump on Texas. Film is one thing, but facing it is another.

Third, because UF and Bama have played mediocre at times in big games, this one is hard to predict.  I don't think it will be a shoot out.  I will cop out and say first team to 20 points wins because I don't see more than 44 points total in this game.  Bama/UT would be a low scoring, old-school BCS Title game affair whereas UF/UT would be faster-paced and definitely more exciting BCS game.  Either way, I am definitely pumped that UT has a chance to finally prove themselves on the main stage yet again in the same decade!

Fourth, Houston wins their conference game with their high-powered offense & low-voltage defense, GT rebounds from a Georgia loss to take out Clemson, & the rest of the unbeatens stay unbeaten.

Finally, who's going to the Big 12 Championship game this weekend?  I am & looking for some good tailgating! :)
