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.
