The Alabama Crimson Tide convincingly defeated the Texas Longhorns, and it happened on the first drive of the game when Colt McCoy left the game after being introduced to a SEC defense.

Yes, Texas fan, welcome to man's game.

I felt that Alabama would win the game, I had no idea that Alabama would eliminate the enemy's general in the first quarter to do it.

Clearly, the SEC owns the BCS.  Four years in a row, and five out of the last seven seasons, teams in the SEC have brought home the trophy.  LSU has two, Florida has two, and now Alabama has one.

Does this mean Alabama will bring home their second one next season?

Obviously it is way too early to tell. 

Nick Saban has brought the Tide back into national prominence within three years of his arrival in Tuscaloosa.  Only one question remains—will Saban remain the head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide?

If he stays in college coaching then yes.

Alabama is the Notre Dame of the South.  There is no other program as coveted or loved as Alabama.  My Florida Gators is powerful and one of the top five programs in the nation, but Alabama is Alabama.

What we saw last night was total domination.  If it weren't for a rough start then Alabama would have blown Texas out of stadium early.

Colt McCoy is an unfortunate victim.  Passed over last season by Oklahoma last season, no Heisman trophies, and an unceremonious departure early in last night's game.  Let's hope his NFL future is bright.

Will the SEC continue it's dominance in college football?  Alabama, Florida, and LSU have been powerhouses the past decade, and until the NCAA creates a real playoff system, then the SEC is in a good position to continue their dominance.

Alabama Crimson Tide—congratulations!  They deserved, earned, and won it.
