 Congratulations Alabama Crimson Tide, you played a wonderful game! You won the National Championship! On that same note, congratulations Garret Gilbert! You grew up from a true freshman, on the nations biggest stage!

 In the same breathe, I am gonna say, BAD BAMA, BAD BAMA! I congratulate you only to scold you. The Good Lord, or whom ever you worship, handed you a blow out win, and you couldn't do it. You took out the nation's premier passer for the game, and you couldn't put it to shame.

 We handed you a true freshman Qb, something that should have taken the Horns out of it completely. Instead in the second half, Gilbert shredded you apart, brought it to 21-24. The game was yours. Jordan Shipley helped a young man out, and made it a game.

 The vaunted defense could not stop the pass with the qb's eyes shut in the second half. This article is gonna come up a bit short. I am gonna say, it, and I expect argument, lots of argument. If McCoy does not leave this game, I say that Texas blows you out, or at least wins. Like I said, arguments are expected.

 Your gonna say, your just mad you lost. Your gonna bring up the two late fourth quarter plays. I am gonna bring up that you did it against a true freshman. I am gonna bring up that, if it wasn't Gilbert in there, we would have been running the ball to protect the win. So bring your arguments, and your whatevers, but this game was way closer than the score said.

 While Alabama and their fans should be happy with the win. However, should be very unhappy with how they won the game.
