Yes, he has huge numbers; Brennan had a chance to justify big numbers in a joke conference. Hawaii had played only two real teams but somehow talked their way into the Sugar Bowl because of the 12-0 record. I still think the BCS should judge you on strength of schedule more. Hawaii looked like a team way over their head and their super hero QB looked scared and weak. The coach argued that Brennan deserved the Heismann over Tebow; anyone agree now? Even in a bad game Tebow still looked solid and clearly is a great QB.
Brennan said he had never seen speed like UGA and a team that could hit as hard on defense; in his career; welcome to the SEC. There are many college football teams in several conferences that would have woke him up. His stock will dive but this will be a geat experience for him and may help him have a future somewhere in a system team that has a great line.
USC and Georgia finished strong with Georgia winning 7 straight. I bet several teams like the BCS now and are glad there is not a playoff system.
If I had to schedule match ups: this would be my top 5:
Georgia vs. USC- Rose
LSU vs. Ohio State- Championship
Missouri vs. VTech- Orange
Iliinois vs. Oklahoma- Sugar
West Virginia vs. Kansas- Fiesta
*I know the Big 12 cannot have 3 teams in the BCS but they would have been good matchups.
I know some would be in a bowl game that their conference allowed but these games would have been fun to see. At least we get to watch one that probally will be a good game but you never know with the SEC. LSU healthy is a dangerous team.
I am for a playoff team; USC and Georgia would have been fun to watch in the playoffs. There are others that would have been given new life and might have surprised us. I do know one thing...If we are going to have the BCS; please have a system that teams like Hawaii; who play two real games; stay out until they play a real season. Coach June Jones said they were out classed and could not come close to that level of play. Why were they there? Illinois had a great season but we all knew that USC would destroy them.
Great upsets and a great year. We still have 3 more decent games and I know we have shocks in store the next week.
