Oklahoma 14 - Florida 24

WHAT A GAME!!!! Two powerhouses pitted against each other for National Bragging Rights. In the end, the stronger team won.

Florida played a magnificent game. Their defense was stronger and more efficient. Tebow was, indeed, Superman. (except for that one surprising unsportsmanlike penalty)

I had to laugh when Bradford was charged with that last interception; if the entire Gator team touches it, should it REALLY be an interception? ;-) That will certainly be a game highlight!

Congratulations Florida Gators!

Boomer Sooner!

With you...not Tebow!

Roll Tide Roll!

Well, I'm amazed at the number of people (and MANNER of people) who hold such a strong feeling about it. Don't get me wrong; I'm a MAJOR SOONER FAN! (and ALUMNI) I think my posts and comments will show that. But when it's all said and done, it's just a game.

Disappointed? Sure.

Crushed? Hardly.

No one hates a sore loser OR a sore winner.

Sorry for your disappointment but I saw a video yesterday that said both Tebow and Bradford were Christ-followers. Either way God would get the glory! I didn't nor do I watch f-ball although I did read about some loud mouth on OK team. Maybe should have kept his mouth shut? Serves as a notice to all that we should not be tooting our own horn.

Great game! I have utmost respect for Stoops and Bradford, too. The defense played well and we had our opportunities. I was impressed with Tebow in some ways and not in others. He was intercepted twice and Bradford's interceptions were in the hands of receivers. Oh well! IT IS A GAME, like you said. To make it to that many bowl and title games is amazing to me. What a run for Stoops. I've had a friendly ribbing going on all year with a Ute like M. Steve and you, Rick. It's all part of the fun.

As for Bill's comment, I think we just have to remember these are not quite mature adults that are on the field or talking to the media. LOTS of pressure and excitement. Some handle it better than others, huh?! There is another side to that story, too, started by Tebow. (Only Tebow proved it on the field instead in the end!)

You remember Greg Brooks, Rick? Jeff went to the National Championship game with him - the one we won - as well as another couple on either side of that one. Just curious if you remember him.
