Thoughts from the Big 12 Championship from an attendee...


1) I think the layout of the stadium including very bad acoustics makes the Cowobys Stadium really inhibits the fans and the noise.  You could tell the Longhorns and Cornhuskers fans were in to it at times, but the you couldn't tell it by the sound.  It's great that it can hold 100K plus, but it seems too spread out (i.e. not really on top of the action).  That's just me, but I also don't like the Cowboys so I may be biased.  I think Reliant makes you feel more in the game than the Death Star.  For a bowl game or pro game, I can see where it would be a better environment.

2) I don't know why people are jumping on the Alabama bandwagon.  I think Alabama, Florida, and Texas have all underperformed at times all season.  With all three teams full of talent, they are going to have the ability to pull it all together at certain times as well.  Alabama finally pulled it together yesterday, but they have four weeks to simmer down. And Texas has four weeks to get back on track.

3) Alabama's style of offense plays well into our defensive strengths.  Not a lot of trickery or zone-read.  Running and throwing is what we do well against.  I feel better with our D facing Alabama than playing Florida.

4) What in the heck happened to Cody Johnson?  It looked like Pellini took the OU game and replicated everything from it - Drop half the team back and rush 4-5 guys every play.  Tre and Fozzy can't pick up the blitz.  Cody is a solid body who can handle that rush as well as dish some back.  In the second half, Cody was brought in and he helped give Colt a few extra seconds on more than a few plays in the third quarter.  OC Davis is an idiot for not utilizing him last night as Colt almost got knocked out of the game and the season.  That is unless he was hurt, but I saw him on a few plays.

5) I think Nebraska should have taken a page out of the "Waterboy" playbook and let Suh win the game for them by kneeling on every offensive play.  That one sack of McCoy inside our ten was a play that could have resulted in a fumble.  Thankfully Colt held on for dear life.
