Congratulations to the University of Texas Longhorns on their national championship, beating the two-time defending champion USC Trojans 41-38 in what was one of the most exciting bowl games in recent memory. Having family in Texas and loathing the general attitude of most sports “fans” born and bred in Southern California, I was rooting for UT the whole way. Although the players from USC are surely disappointed at failing at a chance to three-peat, their group is still one of the most talented to ever see a football field, and we’ll be seeing people like Leinart, Bush, White, and Young playing on Sundays in the near future. In particular, Vince Young set himself apart even from the two Heisman Trophy winners playing on the same field. Some people are calling it the best clutch performance by and individual on the college football field…ever.
I have to admit, as screwed up as I may think the BCS is, it has been responsible for a lot of great games, including four more this year. If you’re looking to celebrate the win, there is a party in my pants, and you’re all invited. Can’t wait for the NFL playoffs!
