Question by NCAAF Fan: With Texas fans asking for an astrix beside the loss to Alabama in the BCS game?
With Texas fans asking for an Astrix beside the loss to Alabama in the BCS game because of the loss of a starting QB shouldn’t their be an astrix beside the Texas even making it to the game?
Reasons for this:
Texas got lucky when it was losing to Oklahoma when Sam Bradford was injured and Texas went on to win that game by only 3 points. (You can’t honestly say that Bradford wouldn’t have made up a 3 point difference if you are arguing that McCoy would have made up 16)
Texas needed a somewhat controversial call after players were already celebrating on the field to get a second chance to win the Big 12 Championship game in what may be the worst year the Big 12 had in a decade performance wise.
Lets face it the selection of Texas even being in the game was because the school was from an historically better conference. TCU had beat more ranked teams, Cincinnati had maybe the best 1/2 QB punch in the nation (the loss of a head coach could be argued as being as bad as losing a key player) and lets not forget the no love Boise State Broncos who have done nothing but win this decade but get punished because no BCS conference will accept them as a member.
LONG STORY SHORT, do you think that Texas fans need to stop proclaiming the what if statements when they themselves had a few real lucky breaks to have made it that far?
Arizona Buck- Sports Illustrated, Yahoo sports, CBS Sports, Fox Sports. Essentially all the major sports broacasting outlets have addressed the issue in some way or another. The biggest story of the BCS game was the loss of McCoy, do you even watch NCAA Football?

I’m watching two astrixes through my binoculars right now. Next I’m going to be looking for a syntax.
