Ndamukong Suh is a beast. He is a monster. He is an animal. A stud. A man. A game-changer. He is any other adjective related to dominance.

I found all this out while watching the Big 12 Championship game. As a big Texas Longhorns fan and an even bigger Colt McCoy fan, I yelled and screamed and threw things for a majority of the game.

All because of a man named Suh.

Suh was double-teamed every single play, triple-teamed on some. He was held several times and still made the tackle. He had four and a half sacks in one game, which is unheard of for a defensive tackle.

In fact, it reminded me of the Eagles-Giants game from a couple of years ago, when Donovan McNabb was sacked 13 times and Osi Umenyoira went unblocked the entire game by Winston Justice.

Except Ndamukong Suh was blocked. Every play. But it didn't stop him from throwing aside offensive linemen and going after McCoy like a seventh grade boy after a cute girl. He utterly destroyed the entire Texas offense. It was amazing to watch, and awe-astounding in sight.

Ndamukong Suh is the best player in college football. He deserves to win the Heisman Trophy, even though he probably won't. I'd vote for him.

And remember, I'm a Longhorn fan.
