To me we'll never get to really find out who the better team was with McCoy healthy.
Not trying to discredit Alabama because they deserved it for doing their job, but we got a very incomplete ending to the national title game and I'm still disappointed we never got to see who the better team was in my eyes
I still think Texas has a better shot,and maybe would win with Colt McCoy in the game.
Yes Alabama racked up a bunch of yards rushing, but McElroy didn't do jack either.
Colt McCoy more than likely finds a way to score from the 1 yard line and that's 7 instead of 3.
With Garret Gilbert in the game, the offense didn't move the ball or run any clock since they went 3 and out.
The defense in the 1st half was worn down and had their backs up against the wall and that's why Alabama was able to exploit it for so many rushing yards. With McCoy in the game Texas was moving the ball and more than likely would have still moved the ball and took the pressure off of their defense and gave them a minute to rest.
The back breaker was that forward shuffle pass that was recovered and returned for a TD. A senior QB like McCoy wouldn't of let a play like that happen.
Not saying Alabama doesn't deserve to be champions, but I'm disappointed we'll never truly find out who the better team was. It was a very incomplete ending to the season
In what was a really evenly matched meeting, and had a chance to be one of the all-time great national title games now all it will be known for is a star and hiesman candidate at QB getting injured on the 1st possession
