I've seen a lot of football and thought maybe I've seen it all. USC-Texas was a climatic finish with a national championship on the line. After tonight's game, that was the best finish ever and the best play calling with the game on the line ever. No matter the stakes.

I hesitate to call it best bowl game ever because until the end of the 4th quarter, it looked like a Boise ass whopping. But to have Oklahoma even tie the game with a 2 point conversion was amazing enough. Then it just began.

Boise never gave up. Oklahoma just didn't have the defense to stop Boise. Really they were not the better team. They led by 7 points late in the game and in OT and couldn't make a defensive stop once. What a joke.

By that time, I think the whole country was rooting for a Boise upset because they clearly deserved to win this battle and they broke out every sandlot play in the playbook to win this game.

Hook and ladder for touchdown? Check. 4th and game in OT and a wide receiver takes the snap, rolls right, and throws a touchdown. Check. Then the most amazing finishing play I've ever seen and a gusty one. Down one in OT they decide to go for the win. The semi-Statue of Liberty play was run so well I think most at home lost the ball until Ian Johnson was steps from the endzone. Even in replay I wondered how Ian even got the ball. It was fucking magic. It was run to perfection.

I'm still amazed by what I just saw.
