Before we get down to that BCS stuff, let us take a moment and reflect on how Kansas QB Todd Reesing defied laws of physics, let alone remained alive on this play:
We're pretty sure that violates Newton's First and Third Laws of Motion, but that's fine, Economics and Finance double-majors from Texas don't concern themselves with such things.
Oh yeah, not only did he stay alive, but we forgot to mention that he threw a touchdown on that play, too. Too bad Kansas lost the game.
But seriously, what are they feeding these quarterbacks from the Big 12? Reesing, Colt McCoy, Graham Harrell, Sam Bradford and Zac Robinson, just to name a few.
Anyways, here are the rest of our thoughts on the weekend that was:
- College football fans outside of the Big Ten can breathe easy. With Penn State's last-second loss to Iowa, we can be assured that there won't be another Big Ten team getting annihilated on the big stage in Miami this January.
- On that note, it looks as though the BCS National Championship game in Miami will likely be between the Big 12 champion (if it's Texas Tech, Texas, or Oklahoma) and the SEC champion ('Bama or Florida) if they all win out.
- Graham Harrell is a win at Oklahoma away from winning the Heisman trophy this season. McCoy and Tebow are right there with him though if he slips up. Tebow, since the Ole Miss loss and his postgame press conference, has been on a tear, looking more and more like last year's Heisman winner.
-Bobby Bowden had a great 79th birthday. On the 79th anniversary of his birth, Bowden's team treated him to a 41-27 win over son Tommy's former team, Clemson. What a stand-up father, avenging his son on his own birthday. Classy. Happy belated birthday, Bobby.
