"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
At no point during that game did I get the feeling that LSU was the better team on that field tonight. Yet they still pulled out the win. Sports... they are a crazy thing.
I look at the rematch talk from LSU's point-of-view. They beat Alabama at Alabama. They should not have to play Alabama again.
How lucky is LSU that every time it has a title-caliber team the BCS Championship happens to be in NOLA? I'm not saying they wouldn't have won their two other championships somewhere else, but it is still extremely fortunate and a luxury that many other teams never have a chance of happening for them.
Here is what I posted on facebook concerning my thoughts on a possible rematch : "They may be the best 2 teams but a rematch would prove what ? LSU wins at Alabama but a Bama win would give them the title yet it would be one win a piece for the season ? I vote no. Bama had their shot and it was a home game."
Hilarious to see Alabama still at #3. Unreal. They couldn't even score a TD at home. As much as I love college football, I will never watch it again until the BCS is gone if they put Alabama in over an undefeated team like Stanford or Oklahoma State. It wouldn't surprise me to see a rematch, as if the first one wasn't boring enough.

I miss Adam Dunn.
I wasn't a big fan of an OSU/Mich rematch in 2006 and I don't want to see it here either.
You had your chance, your done. You can't be a national champion if you don't win your conference. (Which is why I like the Big10 having a Conference Championship game)
Just in case OSU and Stanford stumble though, those that likewise don't want a rematch should become huge Auburn fans on the 26th.
I fell asleep watching the game. Both teams had great offenses but both teams are severely lacking in offense. Its shocking to see teams with the amount of talent up and down the roster struggle to score.
Oregon traveled halfway across the country and scored 27 points on LSU's defense despite turning the ball over FOUR times.
West Virginia threw for 463 yards against LSU and had 533 total yards, and like Oregon, they turned the ball over four times.
LSU has had trouble against great offenses outside the SEC this season.
I miss Adam Dunn.
