They need to change Stoops' nickname from "Big Game" Bob to "Big Baby" Bob. The guy sat there and chewed out the refs for a good 15 minutes after that holding call (the correct call as OU pulled two Irish defenders to the ground to clear the path) wiped out the rushing TD by the "Belldozer". Seems like the refs should be able to say enough is enough and throw a penalty or toss the guy at some point.
I was really worried Golson would crack under the pressure. Especially when we went so long without scoring and then OU tied the game at 13 in the 4th quarter. He was solid but not spectacular. He managed the game and didn't make the stupid mistakes that he had earlier in the season.
IMHO I believe the BCS should go #1) Alabama, #2) Notre Dame, #3) Kansas State. Again, I think you have to give the Irish a slight edge over the Wildcats because our strength of schedule is better. We beat #8 on the road while the Cats beat #17 at home. Unless schedule strength is overridden by "style points" for the margin of victory.
I was pulling for Michigan to beat Nebraska but they just couldn't put many points on the board. I'm sure the loss of shoelace had a lot to do with it.
Not trying to talk shit or anything, but why should ND be ranked higher than KSU? Nd will not jump a team who crushed a ranked team only 5 ranks behind OU. KSU also beat OU, I would be shocked if ND is number two. I hate both teams, but it makes no sense to put ND at 2 over KSU. If ND plays a ranked opponent in a week KSU doesn't than they could jump them, but not this week.
