    I was there and loving every minute of it haha. Wouldn't be as much fun without a few things like that. What excludes Nebraska and A&M from this behavior?

    I've always heard Nebraska and Texas A&M fans to be somewhat classy to their opposing fans compared to a lot of other teams.

    I've been to a couple Nebraska games in Lincoln and I can vouch for their manners. It's much more of a family event in Nebraska for some reason.

    The last sentence is true, yet counterintuitive. Bigger game, big rivalry shouldn't really equal more drunk (which I equate to rowdy for students) as you'd want to see and recall more of the game. I made this mistake with Boise-MSU this year and have watched the MSU abominations that have followed through more sober eyes.

    I can vouch for the Nebraska people at least when they're visitors which is different. They were cordial around town the night before and at the game this past Saturday. One of them sneaked a red balloon into the stadium and released it after their first touchdown which was neat.

    RIP Darrell Royal. I hope to God that Mack Brown has the offense line up in a wishbone on Saturday.

    Already said the first play from scrimmage will be.

    Royal will be missed.

    It seems somebody forgot to tell Alabama they're not Oklahoma in January.

    Hallelujah! The SEC stranglehold over the BCS Championship Game is finally over.

    That would have been awesome to have had this happen in College Station but there's also something sweet to go into Hooterville and beat them on their own field.

    HOLY CRAP - just woke up in Hong Kong to see the last 2 min. of that game.... WOW

    Let's hope UGA earns the rematch and can find the same weaknesses in Saban's crew.

    Until an SEC team doesn't win the national title I think a one loss team from there should still be penciled in to play. It won't happen that way, but I'd still take the SEC's best over an undefeated Oregon, Notre Dame, or K State.

    No, yes, probably.
