2009 National Championship - Not Yo Momma's BCS Game

I somehow never managed to write anything on the Bowl Challenge posts for the championship game. Of course on Thursday night I was preoccupied, but the fact is I hadn't wrote anything on the GMAC Bowl the day before either. Dave locked up the contest the night before the BCS Championship and quite frankly, I didn't know what to put for my thoughts on the game... still don't.

It's known 'round these parts that I'm a Longhorn and things didn't go the way I wanted them to go on January 7th. The championship game was certainly no 2006 Rose Bowl nor was it even the Tebow/Bradford slug-fest (emphasis on slugs) from 2009. What we were given was a game where Saban looked mortal, McCoy's arm was deactivated, and neither offense did jack bleep for the majority of the game. To top it off, in my household, the ladies went down before the game to a violent sort of stomach virus. For a good part of the game I found myself looking for interesting places to set down my beer en route to "holding hair" (that's teamwork my friends). By the end of the game, everyone was asleep.

Between the hair holding, drinking, and reluctant game watching, sometime mid-game I started texting Kirby about Texas' offensive woes. I was emotionally down, nearing six beers deep. In the absence of, in my opinion, the one player that was the most valuable to his team in college football this year, Texas was done. Make no mistake, I think Texas' offensive coordinator called a terrible game in McCoy's absence, and the offensive line coach should be shown the door for years of incompetence.

But it is what it is.

If by chance friends or family of young Garrett Gilbert find their way to this site, understand the following has nothing to do with the kid... these are like "your momma" jokes, only about how much Gilbert sucks... and it was damn therapeutic y'all. Just sayin'.

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said.
