Was anyone expecting anything different? The Oregon Ducks made history tonight by winning the first official Pac-12 Championship Game. They beat UCLA 49-31 at Autzen Stadium to advance to the Rose Bowl.

Would definitely make things interesting!  But I think we have probably also heard it here last.

UGA is playing well so far. If they could catch the ball they'd be up by 21 points. But LSU will wear them down in the second half. Tigers will still win by two TD's.

As the regular season was melding into the postseason, TCU took care of business against UNLV in masterly fashion--never mind it took them a quarter to get on track, probably due to the bye.  OTOH, Texas couldn't get it done against once-woebegone Baylor.  Similarly, Houston lost its chance at a BCS bowl, but LSU stayed true to form and gave Georgia a real good whupping.  Michigan State's leading Wisconsin ATM, and Clemson's leading VT.  What's really surprising is the extent to which Okie St. is dominating the Sooners.

We waz wobbed.

Anyway, the Tebow-Train keep chugging along: Broncos 35, Vikings 32. Broncos are now tied for first in their division.

Quote
MINNEAPOLIS -- Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos were close to being knocked out again. They haven't flinched in more than a month.

Tebow led yet another late rally, passing for a season-best 202 yards and two third-quarter touchdowns to help the unflappable Broncos win their fifth straight game with a 35-32 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
....
Tebow didn't wait for the closing minutes to start the rally. The Broncos drove 78 yards for a score right after halftime to cut the lead to 15-14 on the first touchdown to Thomas. McGahee tore up the Vikings between the tackles on that possession and finished with 111 yards on 20 attempts.

Ponder, a college rival of the former Florida star Tebow while at Florida State, responded right away, though. He completed a 52-yard touchdown pass to Harvin, another Gators star, when Chris Harris fell down trying to cover the out route, letting Harvin race untouched to put the Vikings back up by eight.

Quan Cosby's kickoff return past midfield put the Broncos back in position, though, and the next big play was all Tebow. Pushed out of the pocket with no one open, he ran left and delivered on on-target across-his-body throw to Thomas, who ran the rest of the way for a 41-yard score.

Tiger wins!

Quote
The former world No. 1 won the Chevron World Challenge on Sunday at sun-drenched Sherwood Country Club, his first victory in 749 days. Woods, who vaults from No. 52 to No. 21 in the world rankings with the win, knocked in birdie putts of 15 and 6 feet on the final two holes to defeat Zach Johnson by one shot. Woods emphatically punched the air after his putt on the 72nd hole disappeared.

Woods finished with 3-under-par 69 to wind up at 10-under 278.

Paul Casey finished solo third at 5 under.

"It feels great," Woods said. "It was a lot of fun coming down the stretch. I hit two good putts on the last two holes."

Well, the Cincy game was pretty pathetic. Every one of their losses thus far I've been able to pin on a couple lousy calls or one rookie mistake, but that was just sad. We objectively deserved to loose. I'm not even that mad. Just a little depressed.

This is for all the whiners who don't have a clue about college football and somehow think the National Championship should be a popularity contest. The two best teams in the nation are playing in the National Championship, and that's how it should be. Period. It's not about who anyone wants to see play, it's about allowing the two best teams at the end of the year deciding it on the field- at the end of the year. And if you aren't interested in watching LSU and BAMA play again, then you aren't interested in college football. Go watch some Canadian Football League and stop your whining!  ;)

Screwy bowl selection process did something interesting this year:  put all my almae matres in Qualcomm Stadium for their bowl games.

TCU vs. Louisiana Tech looks, at first blush, like a slaughter in the making, though I din't know enough aout Tech to say further.  But Texas vs. Cal could be very interesting; their records match, and this year, both have been mercurial--won't know which one to root for.

Well, the Dawgs game pretty much went as bad as everyone expected. Oh well. I was proud of our defense in the first half.  Some of the best defense ive seen from anyone all year!  I wish we caught those balls at the beginning so the final score didnt look like quite as much of a blowout.  But honestly, I dont really have a problem losing to a team that is genuinely that much better.  We'll be back in the championship game next year!

Now Im torn on who to pull for in the title game. Normally Id pull for Bama, but i tend to root for teams that beat my team (unless is Florida).  If youre gonna run all over my team, you better go out there and win it all! You cant blame us for losing if no one out there could beat them.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

Agreed. But let's say hypothetically, that Alabama beats LSU, what does that prove? Both teams would have beaten eachother (practically) on the road. Both teams would have only one loss. So would it be a split AP-Coaches Poll Natl Championship?

No that I'm worried, I think the Bayou Bengals will pull it out. ;)

A statement with which I tend to wholeheartedly agree, but one that is worthy of discussion.  Other sports (and other leagues) make no effort to define it this way.  Does anyone think the St. Louis Cardinals were one of the two best teams in baseball this year, for example?  Or in how many years has the Super Bowl featured what amounted to #1 vs. #3 or 4 or so?  (#2 and #1 having already squared off in a conference championship.)

Quote
It's not about who anyone wants to see play, it's about allowing the two best teams at the end of the year deciding it on the field- at the end of the year.
But technically, the BCS system doesn't attempt to match the two best teams, it matches the two highest-ranked teams.  And since the rankings have a decidedly human component, the who we'd like to see is already factored in, whether deliberately or subconsciously.

Quote
And if you aren't interested in watching LSU and BAMA play again, then you aren't interested in college football.
Well, yes; with this I completely agree.  Nothing to add!

What should be dawning on us — especially those of us who greeted Tebow’s Broncos career with skepticism — is that, thanks to a rock-solid, two-parent upbringing, Tebow is quite different from Young and Vick in terms of mental and emotional makeup. Those differences raise the real possibility that Tebow is the athletic-freak quarterback an NFL franchise should embrace with a revolutionary offensive approach.
 
What do I mean?
 
NFL quarterback is a 24/7-365-day job that Vick and Young were unprepared for coming out of college. NFL quarterback is a position best played by young men who were raised by strong fathers. Quarterback is the ultimate leadership position. You have to be taught how to lead. You have to be taught how to prepare.
 
Vick and Young, athletic freaks on par with Tebow, do not have Tebow’s nuclear-family foundation. Vick and Young entered the league emotionally immature and with a set of values inconsistent with the values that lead to consistent, strong QB play. You can wing it in college and get by on sheer athleticism and talent. You can’t do that at the quarterback position in the NFL.
If you will, you can become all flame.
