Texas 41, USC 38

Wow. That was one badassshithell of a game. Vince Young is one of the badinest badasses to ever badass the college game. And he's charismatic as shit, apparently, as I watch the postgame celebration. Let's hope the agents find a way to get around the Chinese Wall Mack Brown's gonna try to build around him and tell him he's gonna go number 1 so that he GETS THE FUCK out of Texas before September of next year when the Buckeyes roll into Austin. [/praying]

Speaking of number 1 in the draft, the OMG superhuman Reginald Bush was pretty much a non-factor. Matt Leinart, in his last college game, was anything but: 29/40 for 367. Whoever gets him in the draft is gonna be VERY happy.

And, of course, one now has to comment on ESPN's ridiculously masturbatory USC pieces which clogged up the airwaves for a few weeks. As Fiu said in his game preview, it is not a good idea to piss of the CFB karma Gods by prematurely pulling out the "greatest ever?" card. In pointing out '83 Nebraska, '02 Miami, and '03 Oklahoma as the most obvious examples, he said "the college football karma Gods tend to kick teams in the cheese and biscuits when they're being called the best ever before the job is actually finished," and even likened ESPN's idiotic series to "Dewey Defeats Truman." His SOC is already up, finishing with this line: "Never ever ever ever run a Greatest Team of All-Time series until the game is played." Amen, good sir. Amen. Brian from MGoBlog has already chipped in what will probably end up being my favorite crack about this whole business, as he asked on an EDSBS post "is USC the best one-loss team of all-time?"

My only other lingering thought is that - and I never thought I'd say this - there were hotter cheerleaders on the field than the USC Song Girls in their white sweaters. The Longhorn cheer team's ultra-short-shorts-plus-chaps combination awakened the libidos of thousands of prepubescent college football fans. HOTT. Yep. Two "T"s.

More tomorrow. Maybe.

"Simmons blog is kind of like some idiot from Cleveland live-blogging a Patriot playoff loss this year and saying Belicheck blows just like he did with the Browns." -From the comments on the EDSBS on Bill Simmons quasi-SOC of the rose bowl.

I thought that was the best one, too.

Oh, and the bit we're referring to in the comments can be found here:

Yeah, I loved that quote with extra special affection because one of my favorite things to do (you know how much fun that would do?) is to provoke Cave into a rampage about how much he hates Belichick for "sucking with the Browns and then winning a Super Bowl with New England"... as if Belichick made a conscious decision to try to murder his infant head-coaching career simply to aggravate the Browns fans.

Also, I was actually planning on surprising everyone with an SOC of the Rose Bowl since I didn't get to do one earlier, but I got disrupted a few times by desperate phone calls early in the game from the boss and the disruptions broke my flow and I had to trash the SOC. It's a shame, too, because I think I had some good things going...

Bummer - that would have been totally badass and rocked my world to its very FOUNDATIONS.

Also, as I'm sure everyone here will love, I've read in multiple places now a phrase about the game which can probably best be paraphrased by Fiu in his SOC: "Vince Young is a Michael Vick who can throw and win." Beautiful. Quite simply, Young is everything the media has been trying to tell us Michael Vick is over the past five years.

Michael Vick, as we have said on here so so many times, is a running back who happens to be able to throw the ball really hard at no one in particular. Vince Young, on the other hand, is a QB who can also run like an elite-level tailback. The QB position is gonna undergo some changes, boys...
