[NCAA] Fed-Ex Orange Bowl

Recommended Posts

Typical response from someone located in Arlington, Texas. Let me guess, a Texas fan? Guess what, OU loves to hate Texas, but Big 12 is always better than non-conference. Just as I cheered for every other Big 12 team, including Texas, in their bowl.

Anyway, for the second year in a row, OU goes to the National Championship and hands the trophy to the other team as a gift. Once again we played horrible. All I can really say positively is that a lot of guys will be gone next year and we can rebuild, primarily Jason White. He really isn't all that good, and I'm glad to see him gone so that other players have a chance. I feel sorry for people like Paul Thompson who had the chance to be great players but never got their chance. We have a lot of talent in QBs right now, and I am glad we will get a chance to actually see them now.

I guess this pretty definatively shows who is national champs. USC played very well, and with that combined with OU's horrible playing, came out with a huge lead. I'd be surprised to see many polls go to anyone other than USC.

Great job to USC, Auburn, and Utah, all going undefeated this year, and best of luck to all of them next year. I'm looking forward to another great year of football next year. I think the way this season ended just sets up an even more exciting year next year.

All I can say is wow. Complete opposite that I expected to see (after Cal almost taking it to them earlier in the season). Good job to them though, they completely blew out the national championship.

Worst. Bowl. Game. Ever.

OU was absolutely pathetic, now all we're going to hear all week is how Auburn should have played USC. Congrats to USC though.

Boise State lost...

Im so glad USC won that game big. Im sick of listening to OU fans say that Auburn may be good but theyre not on the same level. USC pretty much knocked them off their high horse. OU has played sloppy football all season. Ive been saying all along that USC will pick apart OU's weak pass defense.

Go Trojans

I couldn't agree more. Bring it on :p

Oh, crap, I knew that, sorry. I got lost in thinking back over the season at the teams that did very well and accidently put them in there. They DID lose their last game in a heartbreaker for them. I'm surprised it got all the way to you before anyone noticed that :laugh:

To respond to the rest of what you said... I'll be the first to say that OU wasn't an incredible team this year. All year I saw holes in the team that never seemed to be exploited too much, and therefore were never a big deal as we continued to win all our games. However, the OU team that played tonight, was, again just like last year, not the same OU team that played all season.

I have said all along that Auburn was good, I just don't think they are #1 good, and I still don't. I think that USC would beat Auburn if they played. I also think that if Auburn and OU played, it would be a very close game, too close to predict. I have never said Auburn wasn't at the same level, I just think they are at the same level, but not quite as good.

I would have much rather had a difference system that would have given them the chance to play OU and/or USC though. I'm hoping that next year they will get another chance to do well, although it's unlikely as Auburn will be losing a lot of their big players just like OU is.

Oh well, it's all over now, the past is the past. There is no point on looking back on it and complaining about things that wont change. Lets just cheer on the new champs USC.

I don't think anyone thought it would be that easy, not even USC. I hope Matt Leinart goes to the NFL (49ers) & John David Booty steps in and lights it up.

USC has a shocking amount of talent... Kind of like THE U a couple years ago.

The worst part in the game was the Halftime Show :x Ashely Simpson needs to stay off live stages :laugh:

Haha, oh yeah, did you hear how many people booed when they first announced her name, and then after she finished? That was incredible. I was laughing my ass off. Hell, if I had been there I'd have been booing right along with them. She's absolutely horrible.

I never watch the stupid halftime shows but I had to stick around long enough to hear how the crowd would respond to that no talent having girl. :laugh:

Wow...That was one of the worst beatdowns i've ever seen in a national title game...OU got taken behind the shed and spanked :)

585235780[/snapback]

That wasn't even close compared to the absolutely disgusting, most lopsided victory I've seen...

Nebraska 62 Florida 24, 1995 Fiesta Bowl.

Nebraska absolutely destroyed Florida in every single area of the game. And they didn't throw the ball too many times like USC did tonight. They ran for 524 yards and Tommie Frazier had 200 yards rushing by himself (a freakin quarterback!). I still say his touchdown run where he ran over 8 Gator defenders was the greatest run I've ever seen.

Wow, that was an ol' fashioned but whoopin.  Oh well, at least USC got to win a National Championship this time around ;-).

I'm being serious here:

Would LSU consider re-hiring Nick Saban if and when he fails with the Dolphins?

I am sure they would IF Les Miles does not have any success. Nick Saban was like a GOD in Louisiana. I was down there with family for Christmas and plenty of us were in a bad mood because he was leaving. LSU football is BIG TIME down there.

How does OU end up being ranked number 3 at the end after that loss? What a crock!

if there was a playoff, we wouldn't have anything to argue about ;)

OU was an absolute joke last night. OU has ruined the MNC game 2 years in row. White is the most overrated Heisman winner in the history of college football (since winning, he lost 1 of 2 big 12 champtionship games and 2 of 2 MNC games, and the only reason he won the 2nd big 12 CG was because it was against a .500 colorado team).

thank god OU will not be a contender next year.

Actually, he hadn't won the Heisman before the Big 12 Championship against Kansas State :p I don't think White is overrated he just plays terrible in the biggest of games.

I agree, though, OU has not shown up for the big games lately, which is really disappointing. I was really hoping for the opposite of last year's NC but instead they were even worse.
