LC, Dr. Saturday is my best bud and lives right here in Austin. Known him since we were little tykes and the dude has always been hardcore about college football. On the plus side, he's also a huge Saints fan. Let me know and we'll all get together and shoot around some college FB talk.
Oklahoma may be seen as having one of the best programs in NCAAF these past 10 years and Bob Stoops has done a possible HOF coaching job along the way but to some of their most vehement critics, their the almost kings of this generation's college football great teams. Yes they won one in 2000, like Ohio State did in 2002, but as any solid college football fan has seen, Oklahoma has gone bust far more then they have broken through the big door. They lost to LSU in 2003, to USC in 2004, to Boise State in 2007 in a BCS classic, they lost to West Virginia the next year, then they got beat by a Gators team that some said they would be able to handle.
That's a hard thing to bear if you're a Sooner fan, having your team wipe everyone else off the map, go one to beat some pretty good teams along the way, but fall apart on New Years Day and blow a BCS National Title again time and time again.
Whenever you get to the BCS, you obviously have a very good team,but when you lose over and over again, that hurts your credibility to some hard shell observers and critics, they will never leave you alone claiming you choke on the biggest stage all the time.
Sure Texas may have been willed mostly by Vince Young in 2005 vs USC to win the big one, but they've have moved on since he's left. Colt Mccoy has actually done a remarkable job filling in some huge shoes left over by his predecessor. I'm no Texas fan by any means but I have been steadily impressed by McCoy these past 3 years. He had a huge void to fill in and last year was sort of his coming of age. He led a great game-winning drive in the Fiesta Bowl to beat the Buckeyes that was highly contested and had some tense situations. A 11-1 record and a Top 5 final ranking is not that bad for a man who had to replace a living legend at Texas and is considered one of the top 5 all-time premier players in Longhorns history.
Nonsense. VY is arguably #1 over all college football. No way does Colt surpass him without a BCS Championship and a Heisman trophy and even then, it's arguable. No one in their right mind would ever start a college football team with Colt McCoy if Vince Young were available.
