Actually I feel bad for the Texas backup quarterback Gilbert. But, a championship team doesn't rely on one player. If they can't adjust and overcome the loss of McCoy then they don't deserve it. I'd say the same if Alabama lost Ingram.

They are being quiet about McCoy's injury. I sure hope it doesn't affect his NFL chances. I know he must be devastated.

All of a sudden, I am not feeling as confident as I was a few minutes ago!

I thought the biggest bone head play was the fake punt by Bama. It was too early to do that (but that is usually when it works). Also on defense you DO NOT CATCH THE BALL ON 4TH DOWN. That Texas player cost his team 15 yard by not knocking the ball down.
Bama won the game when they held Texas to FG on the first two.

I love close games. Congrad Dave.

Gary,

Same thought here. When Alabama tried that fake punt I screamed! "No! Too Early for tricks"


I have to say I am impressed with Texas. I am not sure Alabama would have won if McCoy played the whole game. Alabama's key plays really were the result of the rookie QB for Texas making mistakes.

I think Saban might be the sores person one the team tonight. That looked like a pretty good head with the water jug.

I am afraid that this game will always have an asterisk beside it. Colt would have made a difference but my coach used to always say that the football field is like a battlefield. In battle, your first objective is to locate and take out the enemies communication ability and primary weapons system. Mission accomplished early in the battle.

I always remember Super Bowl XXV when the Giants won with back-up QB Jeff Hostetler, who had to start with two regular season games left after Phil Simms got injured. Of course that game will be remembered for Scott Norwood missing a FG for Buffalo at the end, which would have won the game. But it also shows the importance of a team still winning without their primary weapons.

To me asterisks belong when something illegal happened. They used steroids, the ref was running bets on the game. But I have no doubt there are many Texas fans who think otherwise.

The thing with Alabama is they are not losing many of their star players next year. We could very well repeat. Ingram could also repeat with the Heisman. Plus, Florida will be in trouble without Touchdown Jesus.

More to the story:

It was in this morning's paper that McElroy played the whole game with some rib fractures he sustained in the SEC Championship game with Florida. This was kept quiet. He said he was in agony by halftime.
