The entire nation minus the pompous folks from the SEC is rooting for Mack Brown and the underdog Texas Longhorns to put the carpetbagger Nick Saban in his place in the BCS Title Game. Some key factors:
Bama has not committed a turnover in 22 quarters.
Colt McCoy will recover from his horrendous effort in the Big 12 Title Game and connect often with roommate Jordan Shipley. To do this he must get a big game out of running back Tre Newton.
The Tide as usual will rely on on its Heisman winner Mark Ingram and the receiving corps led by Julio Jones. My guess is that Texas will scheme Julio and Ingram out of a major role which means look for #4 Marquis Maze to have a big game.
Ultimately, Alabama gives up too many big plays, their top rusher Cody is no Suh, and Colt, still stinging from the Heisman snub, will rise up and eventually lead the band in The Eyes of Texas after the game. So with apologies to my friend– former Tide and Baltimore Colt linebacker, Barry Krauss, tonight Alabama and its 25 million dollar Coach are going down.
Tune into Terp Talk tonight as Texas fanatic, Tim Rosolio will provide a live report from Pasadena.
