Nope, not rooting for TCU. Just rooting against Texas. They are clearly NOT one of the best two teams in the country. I think they'll get stomped by Alabama, ala Ohio State in 06/07 vs. Florida. Just because Texas went undefeated in a very mediocre Big XII does not make them better than a whole host of other teams. That's the nature of the BCS though, so there's nothing that can be done about it.
I do think Colt McCoy is a vastly overrated quarterback though. People always harp on his completion percentage, but when 90 percent of your passes are <5 yards, you're bound to have a pretty high completion percentage. I'm glad he was exposed by a good defense against Nebraska and happy another mediocre quarterback won't win an undeserved Heisman (see: Danny Wuerffel, Chris Weinke, Eric Crouch, Jason White, Troy Smith, Tim Tebow, with Tebow of course being the biggest outrage of them all).
You're right that this criticism was unprovoked but I figured this was as good a place as any to share (despite the fact that this is the Cornell thread and not the UT thread).
