Can Texas Focus?

Posted on: January 5, 2009 2:25 pm
 

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- They don't really want to be here. They don't think they should be here. The Texas Longhorns believe they should be playing several thousand miles away in Florida. They might be correct.

But they're here, now, playing Ohio State. One of Mack Brown's messages before the game was a simple one. When the Fiesta Bowl was set last month, Brown told the team: "We don't like it, we don't appreciate it, we don't think it's fair. But it is what it is, and we're moving forward."

How far they move we won't know until after the game. Brown will have to pull off a splendid coaching performance because his players, no matter what he says, have the perceived national championship slight in the back of their minds. Even Brown admits this is dangerous territory for his team. "My experience in bowl games is the teams usually win that want to be there," he said.

"Don't say, 'Oh, poor me,' Brown said, explaining further what he told his players. "Don't say the system was just poor to you this time. It has been poor to a lot of people."
That's been Brown's message.

But has it sunk in?

Yea Mack, you're right.  Its not fair.  By your logic, Tech would be in the Fiesta Bowl.  I mean, they did beat you right?  But the rules that YOU voted in agreement with are what they are.  So shut the heck up.

Its a NO WIN situation for the Buckeye's...

Ohio State WINS = Texas was not motivated to play in the game

Texas WINS = Ohio State chokes

Ridiculous...
