Defense wins ball games

Posted by Richard on January 9, 2009

Will everyone who thought the Sooners would only score twice please raise your hands?

Hmm, that's what I thought. I think half of you with your hands up are lying. You other three guys must be rabid SEC football fans.

My hand was half-up. I wasn't that surprised by Oklahoma's mere 14 points, and I fully expected Florida to hold them to no more than 20-something.

Actually, what surprised me was how well Oklahoma's defense played — at least for the first half. But Florida eventually wore them down, and Tebow really made that triple option play work in the second half.

As I've said before, the SEC is clearly the strongest football conference, and especially when it comes to defense. I bet at least half a dozen SEC teams could hold the Sooners to less than half their average offensive output.

Which reminds me: Sam Bradford may have had the more impressive stats this year, but I still think Tebow is the better QB and should have won his second Heisman. His achievements were against those tough SEC defenses, not the largely porous ones in the Big 12. 

Oh, well, Tebow is only a junior, and I suspect he'll be back next year.

Congrats, Gators!
