On BCS Championship
Congratulations to Alabama for winning the BCS Championship, as known as the Mythical Champion of College Football. It’s pathetic to think that the new BCS Director plans to stick with the current format.
I feel Texas QB Colt McCoy’s pain. To be injured in a huge game after such a great career must be difficult.
Besides being a political columnist, George Will loves sports – thus the topic occasionally appears in his column. This column about college football is a good read.
On the Sugar Bowl Retrospective
Although congratulations to the Gators, I’m still stinging from the Bearcats poor showing at the Sugar Bowl. Knowing odds were against UC, I was hoping for a respectable showing. Instead, I got a nightmare.
Best Florida Decision: After winning the toss, the Gators’ decision to defer was brilliant. Knowing that scoring on the UC defense would not be a problem, Coach Meyer showed confidence in his defense to stymie the Bearcat offense. I knew UC was in trouble after the first two possessions.
Bearcats Critical Moment: During the first possession and after a first down, RB Jacob Ramsey ran 11 yards for an apparent first down. Wrong – a holding penalty called the play back and the Gator line applied the pressure.
Tim Tebow’s terrific career at Florida is over. Now he awaits the NFL draft and people argue whether or not he’ll make it at that level. Although time will determine his NFL accomplishment, the more I read and hear about the man, I bet he will be very successful in the more important game of life.
I wonder how many people watching the Sugar Bowl checked the Bible verse he displayed on the black under his eyes. For those who didn’t, here’s Ephesians 2: 8-10
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God— not the result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.
