NFL 2010 Draft 2nd round results


NEW YORK, N.Y. – The 2010 NFL Draft has been full of surprises. After much speculation about teams trading for the2010-nfl-draft-logo St. Louis Rams first pick in the 2nd round to land Notre Dame quarterback, Jimmy Clausen, the Rams kept the pick and Clausen dropped all the way down to 48th overall where he was selected by the Carolina Panthers.

Clausen’s drop in stock was one of the biggest surprises but he wasn’t alone. As Clausen squirmed in his seat, dropping 44 picks lower than the slot ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper, Jr. had him in, Texas Longhorns quarterback Colt McCoy dropped all the way into the 3rd round. McCoy was selected 85th overall by the Cleveland Browns who threw in the towel on the Brady Quinn project, trading Quinn to the Denver Broncos in the off season.

Alabama Beats Texas 37-21 in BCS Championship


PASADENA, CA. – The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide defense knocked Texas Longhorns quarterback Colt McCoy out of the BCS title game early Thursday night, then made a big play to save the win late, going on to a 37-21 victory for their first national title since 1992.

McCoy injured his throwing shoulder on the Longhorns fifth play and watched most of the loss from the sideline. “I would have given anything to be out there,” said McCoy. “Because it would have been different.”

Garrett Gilbert, a highly recruited freshman who is the Longhorns’ quarterback of the future, had only thrown 26 college passes coming into the game and was thrown into a pressure-packed situation, stepping in for McCoy in the national spotlight. He responded well, throwing two touchdown passes to All-American Jordan Shipley to trim the deficit to 24-21 with 6:15 left.

After an Alabama punt, Gilbert and his Longhorns had the ball at the 7-yard line, 93 yards away from one of the most incredible comeback stories in the history of the game. But that changed when Tide linebacker Eryk Anders forced a fumble on a blindside sack of Gilbert with 3:02 to play and the ball was recovered by the ‘Bama defense.

Three plays later, Ingram, the offensive MVP, took it in from the one yard line for a 10-point ‘Bama lead. A few minutes later, after Gilbert threw his third interception of the night, Richardson scored another to make it 37-21, making a close game look like a blowout on the scoreboard.

Ingram finished with 116 yards rushing and two touchdowns, and Richardson had 109 yards and two scores, earning the fourth straight national title for the SEC.

“I don’t think anybody in the country worked harder than us,” Ingram said. “We played a great game today.”

Texas (13-1) went into the game ranked No. 2 and got there due to the play of McCoy. After the injury, McCoy was asking to go back in to finish his last college game but Texas coach Mack Brown decided to err on the side of caution, and McCoy spent the second half wearing a headset on the sideline while Gilbert took the snaps.

“It’s a hard learning curve but [Gilbert] learned fast,” Brown said. “At one point, I thought he was going to win the ballgame.”

Alabama coach Nick Saban became the first coach since the polls began in 1936 to win national titles with two schools. He won the 2003 BCS championship with LSU.

“Everybody has made a great team and that’s why this team is good,” Saban said. “It’s not just because of me. I’m proud of the team and proud of the way they played today and I’m really proud of the state of Alabama.”

Mark Ingram Wins Heisman Trophy


NEW YORK – In the tightest vote in the 75-year history of the Heisman Trophy, Alabama Crimson Tide running back Mark 2009-heisman-candidatesIngram, shown in center of photo, won the award.

Ingram, the Flint, Michigan native may have gathered several votes last week after he led his team to a lopsided 32-13 victory in the SEC Championship game over Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators.

Running Back Toby Gerhart of the Stanford Cardinals came in second, just 28 votes behind Ingram.

Texas Longhorn quarterback Colt McCoy was considered the favorite but would leave New York without hardware on this night but will be vying for a bigger prize on January 7 when his team plays in the national championship game against Ingram’s Tide.

Other nominees were past Heisman winner, Tebow and Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

NCAA Slugfest #1 Texas hosts #7 Oklahoma St


The No. 1 Texas Longhorns are coming off back-to-back victories against then-No. 1 Oklahoma and No. 11 Missouri while scoring a total of 101 combined points. They were rewarded for their performance; becoming the first team since the 2006 Ohio State Buckeyes to receive all 65 votes from the media and becoming a unanimous No. 1choice in the AP poll.

Texas Coach Mack Brown is attempting to take all the attention in stride and is keeping his players focused on striving to improve as he prepares his Longhorns for another tough match-up this weekend against No. 7 Oklahoma State Cowboys. “We’re playing at a high level, but we’re not a great team yet. We’re at a point, unless we play well, we’ll get beat.” he said.

In last year’s meeting Oklahoma State blew a 35-14 lead in the 4th quarter and suffered a heartbreaking 38-35 loss to the Longhorns.

This match-up features two undefeated teams fighting for position in their conference and orchestrating runs for the national championship game. Both teams are 7-0 overall and 3-0 in their conference and have two great players taking the snaps from center.

Cowboys’ Zac Robinson (14 TDs) and Longhorns’ Colt McCoy (19 TDs) will try to light it up on Saturday when these two offensive powerhouses take the field in Texas.

Texas has given up 275 yards passing a game so Robinson may find success in the passing game. McCoy praised the Cowboys’ offense, “They can score pretty much every time they have the ball, so we’re going to have to keep playing to that standard.”

McCoy’s Longhorns have proven they can do the same.

Sounds like an offensive slugfest, one we won’t want to miss.
