Put me in the same boat. I often find myself just scouting prospects instead of actually following the game.

What's strange is how if you're a team that actually executes the fundamentals of defense.... can get off blocks, maintain leverage, tackle, cover receivers, and stomp on quarterbacks...

..you're a "boring" team.


95% of these defenses in college football outside of LSU and Bama are TERRIBLE. And they don't even care. They don't even try.

These offenses playing tennis with each other in these bowl games are not 'special'. They can't hang with top SEC defenses. How many damn times does it need to be seen?

I think people have played way too many video games. That is not how football is played... at least not by good teams.

This isn't like the NCAA tournament in March or the playoffs in any other sport where it's a rematch after both teams fought through playoff brackets - it's two teams being voted in and facing each other in a rematch so a split NC would be fair without question IMO, though I doubt it happens since the voters likely will vote the same in each poll.

Did Florida and Florida St. split the national title in '96 when Florida St. beat Florida in the regular season, only to get beat in the rematch in the national championship game? I think not.

Arizona St. was the #2 team in the country at the time, but couldn't play for the national championship because of bowl tie-ins... they had to play in the Rose Bowl.

That's why the BCS was created in the first place. So we could get #1 playing #2 every year for the national championship, and avoid scenarios where one of them were left out due to bowl tie-ins.

The BCS gets it right 99% of the time. You can tell the BCS works because everybody is bitching about it.

It could use a tweak or two, mainly just a +1 playoff. The SEC already proposed this to the other conferences because the SEC knew that two SEC teams were going to play for the national title one of these days and wanted to avoid it. The other conferences (other than the ACC) wanted no part of it.

Fans would have to sell their houses in order to follow their school around the country to attend multiple playoff games if their school keeps advancing.

An 'NFL style' playoff format just isn't practical.

Furthermore, the NFL playoff system is just as flawed when division winners with losing records can get into the playoffs, leaving better teams with 10-6 records out because they play in a tougher division.

You're not guaranteed to get the two best teams in the superbowl either... the only thing you're guaranteed is to get the two teams who got the hottest in the playoffs.

The regular season means something in college football. You have to prove you're one of the best two teams all season... not just in the playoffs.

You might think that the BCS is flawed and blah blah blah...

But you can't tell me you aren't excited to see Alabama and LSU go head to head again. This game is gonna be awesome. If you're a draft nut then you are watching the right game because several players from these two teams get drafted in the first round.

Make a thread about BCS fallibility, but don't take away from how awesome this game is. It is the best two teams in College football because they can play defense.

Agree. No matter what i think of these two teams it's going to be fun to see some people play defense. Beyond the talent it will be interesting to see if what they do can carry over to some of these other outfits that dont seem to have a clue.

The crybabies in the media have bitched and complained about every single system that there's ever been in college football, the BCS is no different.

Although the BCS is the only system in which matching up the 2 best teams in the country for all the marbles was the ultimate goal.

They could start randomly drawing teams out of a hat and it would suit some perfectly as long as an SEC team wasn't drawn.

O yes I can. I'm NOT excited to see this game. I think it is ******** and even MORE ******** after reading this crap: http://espn.go.com/college-football/...cs-winner-no-1

I may tune in to watch a few ppl, Trent and Honey Badger and I like watching LSU's QBs make complete asswipes of themselves.

So if they bitched and complained about every single system, and their bitching about the BCS system proves its validity, using your own 'logic', every other system also was valid, because like you said, they were bitching about it.

Once gain, that was a hideous abuse of logic.

No it wasn't... I never said that the prior systems weren't valid to begin with. Should we strip every team of their national titles prior to the BCS? Followed by stripping every team with a BCS title when we implement a different system?

Just because a system is changed doesn't mean the next one is any more or less valid.

People are going to ***** and complain no matter what system is in place. The BCS was designed to get #1 vs. #2 in the national title game.... and that's exactly what it does. It's doing what it was designed to do.

People are only bitching in ANY given year because of the two teams playing for it, not because the system failed to deliver what it's designed to deliver.

Should we go back to #1 playing #7 because of bowl tie-ins, while #2 plays #10 because of bowl tie-ins?

call it whatever you want, in the end it's a game in a neutral site that wasn't reached via playoff. It's not like the super bowl or championship game in any other sport, that's the thing with CFB. LSU beat them in Alabama, so if Alabama barely beats LSU in OT on a neutral site, logically they are both deserving of the #1 ranking. The only difference is one win happened later in the year. I know that the voters won't split it, but you certainly could argue that LSU deserves to ranked #1 just as much as Bama. LSU won all their games to get to the NC whereas Alabama didn't and teams like Ok State and Stanford didn't get a shot.

Florida State/Florida was a little different b/c that rematch was not a close game - Florida blew out FSU, so it doesn't serve as an example of my point.

Also, if we didn't have the BCS that year then Florida would not have went to the NC game, ASU would've, so the best team that year would've been left out.

You're using hindsight to blow off an example of why we have the BCS in the first place. Nobody knew that Florida was going to blow out FSU in the rematch.

Alabama could beat LSU by 4 TD's in the rematch the same as LSU could beat Bama by 4 TD's.

I'm well aware that we didn't have the BCS then which is the point. The BCS matched up the best two teams in the country.... it doesn't matter that they've already played each other. Just like it doesn't matter if the two teams have already played each other in any other sport.


Furthermore, Stanford did have their chance. They got blown out by a team LSU blew out. Oklahoma St. had their chance. They had already passed Bama in the BCS and were ranked #2 after Bama lost to LSU. All Okie St. had to do was win their games and they're in. They lost to an unranked team that was a 4 TD underdog.

If that's not the definition of having your chance and blowing it, then nothing is. We just saw Oklahoma St. should've lost to the team that lost to the team that LSU blew out if the kicker makes a chip shot field goal.

The problem is that you're refusing to use logic because it doesn't fit the anti-SEC agenda.

I know damn well if it was Ohio St., all of this 'logic' would suddenly make perfect sense.

^Yes.

Also, these are the two best teams in the country. Period. Any argument otherwise is a weak one.

But I kinda wanted to talk about the actual game in this thread...

As for the game, it's going to come down to a mistake somewhere by one of the quarterbacks, or a big special teams play.

LSU has the advantage on special teams. I think Bama has a very slight edge at QB. McCarron is pretty good at protecting the football and managing the game. He just can't fail to identify mismatches in favor of LSU and test the DB's. (Like Brad Smelley matched up against Morris Claiborne... which is how he threw the INT).

Bama showed they can move the football on LSU, probably better than LSU can move the ball on Bama.

Trent didn't get a single carry in overtime in the first matchup, and it's why the offense faltered. Feed the stud.

It's going to be an incredibly physical game.

Both of these teams are two of the best I've seen in the past decade. They don't really have a 'weakness'... there's only one phase where they can't be considered 'dominant', and that's at the QB position.

Every big play is going to be HUGE. That's what fascinates me about this matchup. Okie State-Stanford, a long TD didn't mean as much because there were so ******* many. A 30-yard completion in this game might be the difference. That, to me, is awesome.

Two points:

1 - McCarron's been playing better since the first matchup.
2 - Look out for Russell Shepard, especially in the red zone and on the edge.

I just love that every single snap is going to mean so much because points are expected to be at a premium. Again, Robert Meachem catches a 30-yard post over the middle in GB-NO, no one blinks. It's just whatever. Anything like that in this game... it's huge.

I may tune in to watch a few ppl, Trent and Honey Badger and I like watching LSU's QBs make complete asswipes of themselves.
No I agree it is a really weird situation. I'm completely with you on that. I'm an LSU fan and I'm not upset we are playing them again. I'm not arguing wether the Championship system is wrong I'm just saying this thread Alabama vs. LSU is an exciting chance to break down a game. It will be a great game! You don't like low scoring football at all? And you said exactly why it is so exciting for me - Mathieu v. Richardson. I can't wait to see them square off again.

I agree with you though on your thoughts of the BCS. It is screwed, but I think we can say these are the two best teams in football. You can't enjoy #1 facing #2?

Edit: It is controversial, but I think the BCS got it right this time. It won't get it right all the time, but I'm looking forward to this game because it is the two best defenses and in my opinion teams.

This is exactly why I'm excited for this game. You put into words what I couldn't quite explain. Low scoring games are enjoyable for this reason.

the oversigning bowl 2.0.

alabama and lsu combined signed 19 more players than the limit last signing day. i wonder how they freed up those scholarships....hmmm....

after this game, there will have been 5 national champions from the mecca of oversigning (the SEC West) over the past decade between Auburn, Alabama, LSU twice, and whoever wins Monday. Of course this is not a story at all on "sEcSPiN."

[/necessary mini rant,vent].

Two anecdotes:

-The LSU punt coverage team has given up 6 punt return yards all season. That's incredible.

-Some are saying 20 of the 22 starting defensive players in the game will play in the NFL.

If the score is 9-6 Alabama, I say split it.
