In my mind, I think it could be exciting.
It could come down to the final minute. One big play. One big stop.
But then in reality, I remind myself, "Don't bet on it."
I'll be watching the BCS National Championship with some friends on Thursday night, and I hope Oklahoma and Florida put on a show. I want a USC-Texas type game from a few years ago.
Will it happen? Possibly.
You have two tremendously talented teams, two great coaches, lots of speed, lots of athleticism. On paper, you could say this matchup is a push.
But then again, part of me says I'm in for a letdown. Watch Oklahoma, and you'll notice that often the defense can't tackle properly and the offense will go conservative for no reason. Watch them in bowl games, and it's even more disappointing.
With the exception of Vince Young's Superman performance against the Trojans, most of the BCS national title games have been boring. Sure, you can go back to Michael Vick's game against Florida State and the Miami-Ohio State game (which are really the only other two that have been entertaining), but have you really been left in amazement??
Maybe I'm asking for too much. But then again, I was there for the Carroll-Trinity playoff game, and I was in Austin when Kentucky and Michigan State went to double overtime in the Sweet 16.
You'd think this game could join that group.
Something tells me that won't happen. -Trae Thompson
