The game just started for the national championship.

I have to go for LSU as Dad went there during the Great Depression.

Is anyone else interested in the game?

Let me fix that for you:

Ain't that the truth. Tigers need to Defense to score as the Offense is making a lot of errors.

I'm a life long Arkansas fan, went there for a couple years.

My brother-in-law is a life long LSU fan.

Since his Cardinals beat the Rangers for the World Series - I at least want to see LSU not win this game.

Oh don't get me wrong, I am as obsessed with college football as they come, but this "title game" is making a mockery of the sport. Alabama had no business playing in this game, win or not. What a pitiful game, I'm glad I'm not watching.

Cheers,

Well my post got deleted because it referenced another post that was deleted. Seeing as there were not any other warnings, I still think what I wrote applies. So:

Facebook is on fire because Erin Andrews is wearing LSU colors. Who cares!?

I respect that people enjoy the sport and get fired up about it... but so many seem to go so far overboard when compared to any other event/hobby/interest.

I'm sure somebody is going to come along and tell me if I don't want to watch it then I don't have to (and I don't), and report this post as off-topic, but there are few other things in life that I can think of that people get so incredibly fired up about and rant and rave about on social media and in person than football and other sports.

I'm starting to be legitimately worried that some people are going to kill themselves (health problems, not suicide) from the stress levels they incur over such events.



The above post is my opinion. Don't like it? Don't read it.

Well, a team from my home state won it again. Congrats, Tide.

That being said, I always thought that this should have never been the pairing for the NC. I would never say this to my friends back home in HSV as they would all crucify me, but I still believe this even after Bama's convincing win. The BCS really needs to go away and there needs to be a playoff.

In a way, I'm kind of relieved. If Bama had lost to LSU again, who knows what Updyke would have done? Implode the Superdome? Reflood the Ninth Ward?

But this is the way it is. So, congrats to Alabama on their 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th or 14th (depends on who you ask) National Championship. Wish my team would get just one.

Was painful to watch, but LSU had their head delivered to them in this game.

Both sides, IMO, did well on Defense. Bama did far better on offense. They clearly had the best play caller and the best quarterback. There's good and bad news for Bama in that area. The good news is that the outstanding quarterback is only a sophomore - they get two more years out of him. The bad news is that the play caller just called his last game for the Tide. He's heading to Colorado State.

On the LSA side, their quarterback just played his last game at the college level. He did show one good point for the NFL in the entire game. When he threw that horrid interception he made one hell of a tackle - for a quarterback.

In the end there is no doubt that LSU lost to the better team and Alabama deserves some major congratulations.

I'm so glad the BCS was here to straighten out this mess and tell us which of the five one loss teams is national champion.  

Dear Ebenezer Scrooge (a.k.a. Jim Delaney), can we pretty please have a playoff now???

While not an OSU fan, I do feel bad for the Cowboys this year. Without the one overtime loss to Iowa State they would have had a shot at the NC game.

Quoting HSVXJ (Reply 10):
That being said, I always thought that this should have never been the pairing for the NC.

One of the poorer arguments I hear for a playoff is that two teams out of the same division in the same conference should not play for the NC. If the BCS existed back in the day this would have happened many times before. The "Game of the Century" between Oklahoma and Nebraska comes to mind in '71 where after OU lost to NU in conference play they could have have played Nebraska again in a championship game. Three Big 8 teams finished in the top 3 that year.

As a Missouri fan I'm happy to latch on to some of that bias now! But, it's not like the media attention to the SEC is undeserved. An SEC school has won the past 6 college football National Championships.

That said, an incredibly boring football game. It will be interesting to see how an offense like Missouri's does in a defensively dominated conference.

The only thing that Missouri gained by going to the SEC is 1) Money and 2) An easier basketball schedule. Be prepared to go win no more than 5 wins in football for the foreseeable future. Missouri is now the SEC West whipping post.

Except that Mizzou is in the East.... Where we'll play Georgia, SC, Vandy, KY, Florida and Tennessee. Outside of a yearly rivalry game against A&M we'll play each team in the West only once every 6 years. I see 4 wins in the east on our schedule next year and we own A&M, so there's your 5 outside the non-conf. schedule.

Missouri gained stability most of all moving to the SEC, the money too of course, but comparing the Big 12 to the SEC no team has left the SEC since Tulane in 1966...the Big 12, well..

That stability and yearly strength of the conference (like we saw this year) is one of the reasons the SEC is a media darling. Looking forward to playing another basketball school that starts with a k in football next year.

Under the incredibly flawed system that promotes SEC teams being placed in the game.

People don't object to non-conference winners in the title game or series over conference winners...provided that they are there as the result of winning some kind of tournament, not being selected by a computer. NCAA 1A football is the only subset of any NCAA sport that doesnt have a playoff--heck, 1AA football has a playoff as well. Stewart Mandel wrote a great column on this for SI.

You may be interested to realize that the BCS computers selected Oklahoma State to play in the national title game.

PEOPLE fudged this result so that Alabama would get its rematch.

Multiple sources are reporting that the LSU-Alabama snooze-fest from last night is actually prompting serious, deliberate discussion about implementing a true playoff system. Hopefully some good will come from all of this.

In any case, I still don't see Fizzou winning out on going to the SEC. But hey, one less decent basketball team to have to deal with for Kansas in the Big 9.

I'll go along with that, but family has gone to OSU over the years.

It would have been a different game if OSA had played.
