Florida Defeats Oklahoma 24-14 To Win BCS National Championship
NCAAF, BCS

Percy Harvin & Florida Defense Dominate; Lead Florida to National Championship

1/9/09 in NCAAF   |   Michael_Luchies   |   17 respect



A hobbled Percy Harvin and an underrated Florida defense led the Gators to their 3rd NCAA National Championship.  The Florida Gators defeated the Oklahoma Sooners 24-14 in the BCS Championship game.  Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford was limited by the Florida defense, and held to 257 yards, 2 touchdowns, and was intercepted twice.  The game was decided by Percy Harvin, the Florida defense, and Tim Tebow doing what he needed to do. 

Percy Harvin was nearly written off before the start of the Championship game.  Harvin was considered a go for the title game, but many wondered if he would help or hurt the Gators playing at under 100% health.  The answer was obvious as the game got underway.  An 80% healthy Percy Harvin was better than any 100% healthy player on the field.  Harvin had just 9 carries for 121 yards and a touchdown, averaging an amazing 13.4 yards per carry.  Harvin also added 5 receptions for 50 yards.  Harvin put together an amazing performance and kept the game balanced so Tebow would remain effective. 

How could anyone have underestimated the Florida defense?  The Gators were 5th in the nation in points allowed, 2nd in interceptions, and 8th in yards allowed per game.  Somehow everyone expected the Sooners to have their way with the Gator defense.  This was not the case.  The Florida defense forced 2 Bradford interceptions, 2 sacks, and blocked a field goal attempt.  The most impressive performances by the Florida defense came at the end of both the 2nd and 4th quarters.  In the 2nd quarter two drives by the Sooners were stopped inside the 10 yard line.  The Sooners decided to go for the touchdown with 5:30 left in the second when Chris Brown was stopped at the one yard line.  Going into halftime the Sooners were driving and were down to the 6 yard line.  Bradford was intercepted by Florida's Wright after the Gator defense had defended his pass towards the endzone.  Then in the fourth quarter the Gators knocked down several Bradford passes and left no breathing room for the Sooner receivers.  The Gator defense held a team that averaged over 50 points a game to only 14 points.  The Florida defense was the deciding factor in the 2009 BCS Championship Game. 

As for Tim Tebow, he was not spectacular, but was exactly what Florida needed.  Tebow went 18 for 30 for 231 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions.  Tebow also added 108 yards on the ground and picked up several crucial first downs.  Tebow was the better quarterback in this contest because he did what his team needed for victory.

The Florida Gators deserve the National Championship after an impressive victory led by their defense and the magnificent Percy Harvin.

I think we are arguing the same thing...but hey we like to debate, eh? You are strictly talking about Bradford's performance vs Tebow's. I think. Well, they were even, passing wise. Bradford had to deal with a better secondary. Tebow ran it for over 100 yards. //////////////////////////////Why do you jump on me about Tebow? Are we talking about who is the better college football player?, Tebow or Bradford? Or are we discussing their prospective NFL opportunities and abilities? I didn't say he was always an accurate passer, but clearly YOU are biased if you don't admit he threw SOME accurate passes in that game. Overall, my opinion of Tebow is he will have a short and uninspiring pro career. Not because of his abilities, but I think once he gets to the pros he won't have the same dedication he had in college. (Tebow Lovers don't read the rest)/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Why? Because he will find endeavors outside of the NFL that will interest him and drive him more. He'll see that in the cutthroat world of the NFL the toll these guys put on themselves to succeed is just something he won't match. He once told Danny Wuerffel when asked about pressure, 'Pressure? That's when you just got laid off and you need to feed a family, football has nothing to do with pressure.'//////////////////////////////////////One last note about NFL requirements on QB's Probably none of the QB's that have been mentioned in this thread can check down through progressions. After watching all of them, I think Graham Harrell is the closest to being pro ready.

Maybe we arguing about the same thing who knows lol. Tebow threw some good passes. Yea he sure did. But you could throw an accurate pass here and there. Ive thrown a perfect ball down 40 yards in an intramural game but I know damn well I could play for Jacksonville University if I tried. Colt McCoy impressed me with that last drive against OSU. He told his slot to run a slant if given that look again and boom TD. Impressive. Bradford can go to the second maybe third if given a ton of time to throw.

that is your problem your shit is strictly on stats and not game time performance. Nowhere did i take away the play any florida D made.

Nor do i blame BRADFORD for the play where black took it from Iglesias. I blame Iglesias!

Tebow is not an accurate passer, accept that he has some flaws. OMG TIM TEBOW HAS FLAWS EVERY TEBOW HOMER FLIP OUT!! THIS IS YOUR CUE!

He doesnt know how to progressionally read defenses(which you have to do in the pro level to be successful ask any Manning) You also have to throw it accurately downfield! at least with a little consistancy. Fact is Tebows picks were no one but TEBOWS fault and somehow people seem to forget that. Tim running the ball up the middle more than twice in a row in an NFL game would result in him getting stuffed and losing the game. If you would pick him as a QB for your NFL team then im happy im not a fan of your team cause you would waste a pick on him to be a QB.  I dont care if you research more than the announcers on gatorbait.com or whatever site is your favorite. You dont watch the god damn game If you even believe for a second he is an accurate passer. And if that is the case then I no longer have any respect for your research attempts. Its painfully obvious. Tebow has pure Quarterback flaws. I dont blame him for that either. I blame Urban Meyer for that but thats a different day of discussion.

He threw the best pass of the night: the 29 yard laser to Nelson. He also threw some of the worst passes of the night. I'm not arguing I'm just stating what everyone saw: Tebow at his best and his worst. Florida's D was the difference in the game and Tebow did his job. Don't sit there and make shit up when you watched one or two Florida gmmes all year, he threw bombs aplenty. By backlashing at the media for overhyping Tebow you've just conformed to all the other ignorant fans who say he sucks without actually watching his strengths and weaknesses. //////////////////////btw, if you are trying to compare National Champions Utah to Boise State...I have three letters for you : TCU....figure it out

Hey it was good game and it could have been either teams game to win.  Florida played a tough game and OU proved that they belonged there.  Even though they did not win, they played a great game against a great team.   Both teams deserve mad props for putting up such a great fight and not rolling over for the other team.

I am not much of a trash talker, never have been. 

Even when I get so pissed off that I could b-slap the crap out of the haters--I pretty much still hold my tongue. 

I have heard people say "well now we can stop hearing about how good the Big 12 is" or "how good OU is".

Please tell me where you hear this-because ever since OU beat OSU and Tech to clinch the Big 12 South THREE WAY TIE ( NOT TWO WAY TIE--A THREE WAY TIE!!)  and move into the #2 spot is how OU does not belong, OU does not stand a chance, Florida is going to blow OU out, so forth and so on.  I have heard this from fans in the real world, fans in the digital world, sports broadcasters, sports news writers and even one pompous a-hole from Duncan Oklahoma who claims to be a Big12 supporter--just not for OU.

Either way, I was born and breed to bleed CRIMSON and CREAM--and as long as their is air in my lungs and a beat in my heart I will do just that--BOOMER SOONER!

Congrats to Florida and their fans! Job well done, enjoy it and don't let anyone take the moment from you with their whining and complaining.  You earned it.

I am out...see you all later.

Look, Tebow's a great college player. No one's debating that. But he just didn't deserve the Heisman this year. He did win the championship though, which i think he prefers. It's just illogical to argue that somehow Bradford had it much easier at Oklahoma with the weapons he has. Tebow has plenty as well. These aren't guys playing for Hobo State for God's sake.

I'll tellwhat, if Antwain randle el from Indina  a few years back had the players to throw to that  Bradford & Tebow have had this year the record books would be closed for many more years as far as total season TDs anbd career TDs. That guy could ball for a team that had noone!!!!!

Hell  i could throw 30 TDs with that team!!!

Yeah I understand your point. Bradford had a great team and benefited from it on some level. Meanwhile Tebow has no talent around him at Florida and has to do everything himself. Percy Harvin? Yeah, what a talentless joke, except for the fact he should have won most outstanding player.

Didn't Tebow win his teams bowl game last year? I think they vote to early for that award.

Bradford was clearly the better QB this season, just like Tebow was last year. Bradford absolutely deserved the Heisman this year.

Saying Bradford didn't deserve the Heisman this year is like saying Tebow didn't deserve it last year.  In both cases, its flat out wrong.

Seriously? what a damn joke. Just stupid beyond belief. It was Harvin by a million miles.

But did Percy ever circumcise Philipian boys?  I think not.

I like that the author said that UF's defense in under-rated. I agree. I actually thought Oklahoma would punish them more. I knew that back four of Jenkins, Haden, Black, and Wright were very good. I didn't realize that Major Wright and Ahmad Black are both first day picks and Haden is probably a first rounder. Jenoris Jenkins will be the first defensive player in a long time to win a Heisman Trophy. They are the sickest defensive backfield I've ever seen at the college level. The front seven took their lumps but rose to the occasion when they had to. Great performance by the Gator "D"

Taylor Mays has a problem with your logic.

I'd agree with that.  I used Sproles as a comparison just because they both are undersized.

On top of that they are getting the #1 corner in the draft....errr out of high school. They must have a endless supply of hookers to through at recruits

The decisions Stoops made in the first half seemed predicated on OU being able to blow Florida out like they had been doing to most other teams all year. OU's record in bowls compared to their record in the regular season suggest that he's a great recruiter but not the sharpest coaching knife in the drawer.

So you're saying he has Pete Carroll disease? Oh wait, Carroll at least wins the BCS games he's in.

Harvin was insane ...would like to have that medical staff . As far as Florida goes enjoy your "championship" and be thankful for another season of a flawed system.

He's a Darren Sproles type guy.  You get maximum value from him on a limited set of plays.  Use him too much, and eventually you get severely diminished returns.

Although if I was picking late in the 1st round I'd take him.  He's special in the open field.  The offensive coordinator is just going to need to find creative ways to get him in space.

Harvin was pretty ridiculous tonight. Although, in all honesty, I would never draft this guy in a million years. He's going to get killed in the pros unless he bulks up.
