Initial Thoughts: This is sure going to beat watching the Nets lose by an average of 26 points each of the last two nights.
Most Awesome Player: Hard not to give it to the reigning Heisman winner, but as Mel Kiper and everyone else has been saying, there's too much star power to give it to any one player in particular. Though it does seem as if the best pro prospect in the entire game is Gerald McCoy, Texas DT (32 tackles, 6 sacks).
Most Awesome Sponsor: Let's just give it to Citi again because I can't find any other sponsors on that website.
The Line: Alabama -4
ESPN says: Alabama 27, Texas 20
Who you should be rooting for: I can't choose - is there any way both teams can lose? Like a 0-0 tie? But then we'd have Gary Danielson slobbering all over the game saying, "What an epic game! Look at these great defenses!" You know, in contrast to people piling on over TCU/Boise State because they couldn't score. There's no right answer here. Do what your heart tells you.
