I spend most loyalties following the Bulldogs of Georgia, and the Longhorns of Texas. I suppose North Texas actually counts too since I sort of discovered them through NCAA Football games, but the Bulldogs and Texas are where it is at for this gamer.
Georgia is the 2005 Outback Bowl Champion, with a hard fought 24-21 victory over the pesky Badgers from Wisconsin. Georgia made it too close for comfort, but really the Dawgs controlled the game the whole way.
To underline the above point, Georgia trailed for all of 7 minutes in the second quarter, managed to put up 460 total yards on offense to Wisconsin’s 230, and whipped the Badgers on the ground 196-60 (rushing yards).
Texas (I was born in the great Republic of Texas for those keeping score at home) is the 2005 Rose Bowl Champion after an entertaining 38-37 victory over Michigan. Man, that was the most entertaining football game I have seen in some time! Last second winning field goals are for the faint of heart!
Vince Young was freaking awesome! 180 yards in the air (16-28-1 and 1 INT), and 194 yards on the ground with 4 TDs on 21 attempts. Tremendous performance! And what a way to win Texas’s for appearance in the Rose!
I am off to a rotten start with my gaming resolutions, but yesterday was a great day of football so who gives a flying $@$*^! I may analyze both of these in-depth when it is not so late, but for now, Go Dawgs! Go! And Hook ’em Horns!
