Anyone else upset on how Saban descided to run up the score and not kneel the ball when they scored their last TD when there was about a minute left?? Would have been classy but I guess they didn't have any.
The Heisman shouldn’t be won or lost by one game. It should be the whole year and highlights. That’s why it is for most outstanding player of the year, not what you did right before voting takes place The vote is also becoming laughable. The vote seems to be influenced by the BCS standings more year after year. There is precedent for a winner with career records (Ricky Williams and Ron Dane). Colt has the most wins and highest comp % of any QB ever and the first QB to record 12 wins in back to back seasons. If you look back at past heisman winners, especially before the BCS, I know there are winners on teams that didn't finish in the top two in the country. I'm not rooting for or against Colt, but I believe that he is a worthy Heisman winner in my book and to not be included with the winners of past Heismans would be bad for the trophy. They risk the Heisman trophy becoming irrelevant in college football.
Just a though. Hypothetically speaking. If A&M would have won last Thursday, wouldn't it hurt A&M (and Big 12) more by winning the game then losing the game? As far as money A&M would receive by the shared income it would bring in the Big 12 by Texas probably missing out of the National Championship Game if A&M had won? Granting that Texas takes care of business in the next game vs Nebraska. With that said it would hurt the Big 12 and Nebraska by the same token if Texas fails to beat the Huskers. I'm not trying to start what's better for the coference, but at this point, anything but a Texas win in the Title Game would not only hurt the Big 12, but the other teams as well in form of money and exposure.
I expect the Texas Defense to be back and on for the Big 12 and the game after in Janurary. I suspect that the main reason that the Defense was torched in Thursday's game was because the limited time to prepare and the tired legs from the quick turn around especially in the secondary.
