I get the whole they could of scored thing, but do you really think they would of held LSU or Bama or 0 or just 21? what you saw was 2 of the best defenses shutting down pretty good offenses as well
Oklahoma St held the number 8 offense to 10 points. Sure the defense did not look great all year but most of the yards where junk yards when he were up by 20+ points and threw in our second string guys and we also played some of the best offenses in the league.
Bama and LSU have so-so offenses and I think Okie St.'s defense would have been able to hold them to the 20-24 point range. Meanwhile there is not a defense in the country that could hold the Cowboys to under 28 points.
But this is all pointless now and Bama has "won the national championship." But I must write a thank you note to the SEC for shifting power. Because from here on out the Big 12 will be the toughest conferences. Bye bye weak teams like Texas A&M and Mizzou and hello BCS contenders TCU and West Virginia. Starting next year there will be 4 different teams in the Big 12 that have won BCS bowls in the past two years:
No other conference comes close to that.
