Haha ok, not really!
Just wanted to drop by and congratulate the Horns on their victory in the Big 12 title game, and their upcoming berth in the national title game against my Crimson Tide.Clock Controversy aside, it was a very gutsy performance, and the Longhorns should all be proud of a team that played their hearts out. Close, hard fought defensive games like that one are my favorite kind of football.
I also wanted to express how happy we, the Bama nation, are that we will be playing Texas in the NC game. (Before anyone makes any accusations, I'm NOT saying this because we have some stupid idea that it will be an easy win.) Texas is one of the few schools that Alabama has NEVER beaten, and is a program every bit as rich in tradition as is ours. We were hoping for a Texas win in the Big 12 game so that we could have a NC game of two historical powerhouses, and I know I am expecting one hell of a game. We will have to defend one of the best QB/WR combos in the nation in McCoy/Shipley, and will be going against an outstanding coaching staff. This should be a war for the ages, and I absolutely cannot wait to see how this one turns out.
As a side note, I'm a Bama grad, both my parents and most of my family are Texas grads...this is a game we have been wanting to happen for a LONG time now. Best of luck to the Longhorns in their preparation for the game, I hope our teams can give each other the absolute war that both of our fanbases want to see.
Roll Tide, and we'll see you all in Pasadena!
