Oklahoma got stronger as the Season went on. They are freaking good. It was a 3 way tie in the Big 12, you have to count that. Would Texas vs Florida be a better game than Oklahoma vs Florida? I can't say, but I think the best Big 12 team is actually going to the NT Game.

McCoy is the pretty much a one man show on Texas, Bradford has a ton of talent around him and that is why I think Oklahoma is really the better over all team.

Either way, the BCS Committee was right in awarding them both BCS Bowls.

Oklahoma is the Big XII's version of Florida on offense. However, they have not faced a Defense as dominant as Florida. The D down there is one of the most dominant that I have seen. Oklahoma will have their hands full.

Florida though hasn't seen a Offense that can dominate as well as Oklahoma's. It will be an interesting game indeed.

The bowl matchups are very interesting from my perspective. I'll be making two trips to New Orleans - on December 21st for the TROY v. USM game in the New Orleans Bowl and then again in January for Alabama v. Utah in the Sugar Bowl.

I like that Hawai'i v. Notre Dame matchup. GO WARRIORS!!!

Too many bowls. I'm pretty sure 6-6 teams are ineligible until all 7-win teams have bids.

I gotta admire the confidence of the guy who said that PSU will mop the floor with USC. I'll believe that when I see it.

Notre Dame is Notre Dame...that's why they get the bowl. And they definitely reached deep for bowl eligible teams. 6-6 Northern Illinois? Really? How about Texas Tech (11-1 in the toughest conference in football) drawing a bowl bye in Ole Miss?

I find that I generally have the hardest time after a large lunch. I think its because I have plenty of "digestion time" at my desk afterwards.

Its only really a problem when I have to leave the office in the afternoon and sometimes can't find a bathroom quickly.

EDIT: OH! BOWLS! The BCS...

Disregard my post...

BCS pulled a fast one on us all.

By not putting Bama vs Texas it doesn't allow for any of us to bark about a plus one game.

If they had Bama vs Texas in the Sugar bowl, and Texas won, they would be screaming about a plus one game vs the winner of the OU vs Florida game.

Instead, Texas gets Ohio State, so if they win, good job. And Bama gets Utah, a team they are expected to defeat.

They cheated us. Again.
