I figured their defense would be a huge issue; the Big 12 is a passing conference, NOT a running one; #1 in rushing was highly skewed from the get go, w/ M. Ingram being possibly the hardest player this yr. to tackle

The AL coaching staffs are what I'm talking about: Their decisions seemed lacking, some way more than others.
The Big 12 is just too much of a seven-on-seven conference; it's just not physical enough. That's the reason the SEC has dominated the BCS since its inception - it's a very physical league, as evidenced by Alabama knocking McCoy out of the game within five minutes.

Texas fans have been really annoying today with all of their excuse-making due to McCoy's injury.

You might be able to get away with letting a skinny quarterback run all over the field in the Big 12, but you can't do that against an SEC defense. You're just asking for trouble.

Calling a QB option around the goal line against Alabama's front seven under the line of thinking that "nothing will go wrong" is just retarded. UT's offensive schemes are what got Colt knocked out of the game; utilize your QB as the focal point of your running game at your own peril.

And I do agree that Alabama's coaching staff did a poor job. But so did Texas'.

At half, Alabama just thought they had the game won. They thought, "hey, we're up 24-6 and they can't move the ball on us, so let's just sit on the ball and not risk any mistakes and play into our defense and we will win this thing comfortably." As a result, they went into a complete offensive shell.

And it almost proved costly.

So, in essence, McCoy's injury almost ended up costing Alabama because it allowed them to ease off the gas and alter their game plan.

Would the game had been different had McCoy not gotten knocked out of it?
Probably
Would the outcome had been different?
Probably not. Not unless McCoy could also play defense.

Which obviously he can't, as the many Florida fans remind us, Tim Tebow is the only player that can play every position, while also acting as the offensive coordinator and (inadvertently) the team mascot.

This, pretty much. The game would have been different, but the W still would have gone to 'Bama.

does anyone disagree that the sec is the best conference in the nation now?
both sec teams in their bcs games won, one completly destroyed the other though, while the other was close. Then again one was against the Big East, who i think are overrated, and the other is the Big 12, in my opinion the 2nd best conference.

eh, the big 12 has 1-2 teams then a huge dropoff...Its definitely SEC #1 but I think that #2 is big10, at least for 09/10.

The Big Ten also won BOTH of its BCS games and yet they don't even get a nod from you as second best huh?

Bowl games are an awful way to judge conferences, they're just exhibition games apart from the National Championship. The SEC is the best, simply because they get the best talent. The Pac-10 is all west coast teams, so they have easy access to the proverbial hotbed that is the California talent pool, making them the second best conference.

Agreed 100%.

I'd rank the conferences something like this:

1. SEC
2. PAC 10
3. Big 10
4. Big 12
5. ACC
6. Big East

The Big 12 was pretty ****ing awful this year after a marquee year in 2008.

For 10/11 maybe, but I dont' see how you can say the Pac10>Big10 for 09/10
