    Didn't Georgia win over Michigan?

    Georgia beat Michigan State in a close game. There's no reason Georgia, with all their talent, shouldn't have beaten MSU bad and had a much better season over all.

    Are you saying that USC is not a 'real' football team? What are they then? They sure looked like a 'real' football team on Thursday. Did Penn State lose to a baseball team? :lol:

    I'm saying that every football team (College and Pro at least) should absolutely have to play some games in cold weather. This could be done by bringing some bowl games North East.

    Also, it's my thought that if that game had been played that same day in State College or somewhere 11 miles from State College (as Pasadena is from USC) the results would have been different. It's been proven in the NFL that warm weather teams often struggle in the cold. It's a MAJOR factor. Also California and Florida teams should not get home games for their bowls. However, did you see how many PSU fans showed up out there?!?! WOW!

    Sounds like sour grapes to me.

    USC would have beat Penn State no matter where they played the game.

    I am Big ten guy, graduated from a Big ten school, but face it, the Big ten is overrated.

    No way do I think that's a given, at all sour grapes or not. The Big Ten does have issues! I wish PSU would have entered the Big East instead dominating the weakest conference out there but still got to a BCS or National title game frequently because of it.

    Alabama should NOT be where they are at, given their YOUNG team. They are playing more true Freshman than anybody in the nation from what I understand. They missed Andre Smith, their All-American Guard. It exposed their lack of depth at the position by having to move people around and play another freshman on the other side of the line. I also agree with the comments about their defensive backfield being somewhat weak. Utah has the same offense as Florida. They looked even better than Florida In my humble opinion and Alabama played much worse against Utah than against Florida. They played above themselves this year, for the most part. IT would have been nice to see what might have happened if Smith's selfishness had not made the rest of the team suffer for the $$$ signs he had in his head. He gave Alambama 3 good years; you would have thought he could have given them one more good week. I'm sure Saban will lecture the kids even more on not talking to the vultures till after their playing days end. I'll get off my soapbox now...:(

    Except that they had a total of 19 players suffer season-ending injuries this year. Injuries decimated them, especially the defense. And they weren't 100% this game (offensive line problems still, Green was nursing an injury, etc.). And, of course, they played terribly in the first half. The second half was rather nice, however. :D

    How can you say that? NO ONE respects the Big 10, at least not in the media.

    Don't forget, the Big 10 is 10-9 against the SEC since 2002...

    I can say that because I have watched the games.

    The Big Ten is overrated and everytime they come up against an SEC, BIG 12, or Pac 10 team in a big game they get their head handed to em.

    Before the bowls I thought OU would win. Now that I see the quality of the Big 12 defenses, I'm going with the Gators.

    Florida 38, OU 28

    I think Florida wins and I can't help but somewhat admire the strong faith of Tim Tebow.

    Hopefully, we might see another reality check like this after the game tonight:

    Tebow is running the option beautifully this game....

    Florida pulls it off with Tebow playing amazingly in the last quarter but his little taunts didn't do much for his character, I suppose he does have some things to learn. I still admire his faith though.

    Yeah, this was all Tebow. I didn't see him taunting anyone, but that's disappointing to hear - he certainly sounds like true salt & light in his school and team.

    Congrats to the Gator fans out there on the PB...

    Well, Tebow did play great on that last drive, but the game was already the Gators' to win at that point; he was just salting it away. It's not like he "won" the game by leading them from behind.

    I know the talk will be all about Tebow (the Obama of college football), but it was really the Florida defense (two great goal line stands) and the play of Percy Harvin (playing on an injured ankle, no less) that really carried the game. If the defense doesn't make those two goal line stands (plus the spectacular interception by Black in the 4th quarter) and Harvin isn't able to go, we aren't having the same conversation right now. And we would most likely have seen Tebow cry again after the game. ;)
