I don't remember the game like that. If you want to look at stats other than what the final score says, look at what LSU did to Alabama when Bama had the ball in the red zone-turnovers and net negative yards. And I don't buy crappy special teams as an excuse that "Alabama would have won if"-that is like saying that Texas would have beaten Alabama for the National Championship a few years back had Colt McCoy not been injured in the game. Bottom line, Alabama should not be rewarded for losing their only 'big' game of the year at home, for not winning their conference (never mind their division) rather than just hanging around and waiting for others to self destruct. The SEC has a tradition of 'proving it' on the field. Losing and then hoping others lose is completely contrary to this. Bama had their shot. They blew it. The end(in my biased mind). Let Okie State have their shot at #1. Do we really need to see LSU and Alabama grind it out again? We know how that one ends. And if you think Okie State has no shot at winning, that is not accurate...I think the experts were saying the same thing about Florida when they beat Ohio State. Okie State might not drop the passes Georgia did in the first half last night-UGA was moving the ball well...who knows what would have happened had they gone up 21-0? If LSU has to play Alabama again, so be it;they will likely beat them again and get to rag them about the 'hat trick', but it just makes me sick to think they get a free pass for squandering their one true test and given the biggest Mulligan, ever.
Same as OU playing Florida 2 years later. OU was the greatest offense ever that couldn't be stopped.
But that was Ohio State from the Big Ten Playing the SEC champion. That's the bottom line. Same as OU playing Florida 2 years later. OU was the greatest offense ever that couldn't be stopped.
I for one am interested in seeing Bama and LSU play again but not that excited. If I was an LSU fan I would be dead set against it. I know the feeling.
Oh, and UGA had not a chance and you know it.
Skunky,Maybe we'll be the cobra and Honey Badger will have to take a little nap.
Congrats to LSU and Bama for the trip to the BCSNC....as it should be...
BCS is a screwed up mess and will continue to be until a playoff system is put into place. If there was a playoff system this discussion would be mute.
Not focused on my Hogs, but in general with this statement....BCS#6,#7,#8, #9 don't get to play in a BCS bowl game, but #11,#13,#15 and #23 go to a BCS bowl game? System is flawed....big time.
Oh well, bring on the games! I'll send you pics from Jerry's World Jan.6th when we play K-State!
You going to Big D? That stadium is amazing and don't be surprised if you find yourself watching the game on the gigantic TV instead of the field.
