COUNTDOWN

Just a few more days now. While you're waiting, I added 10 more photos in the latest slideshow from the California practices and other activities.

Most prognostications I see now have Alabama winning by 7 points. I do think it will be that close of a game, maybe even closer, but I think Texas will be on the winning end.

Why? Because our man Colt McCoy doesn't want his last game in burnt orange to be anything like his next-to-the-last game where he was one second away from defeat.

I've also heard "stop McCoy and you stop the Longhorns." Nebraska came thisclose to stopping him, and I just wonder how many times the Alabama coaches have watched the Big 12 championship game. The Crimson Tide doesn't have a Ndamukong Suh (who does?), but their defense is very, very good.

I haven't heard anyone who's said "stop Ingram and you stop Alabama," but I bet their QB Greg McElroy will be as ready as McCoy since he wants to prove he's better than the winningest QB in college football history.
