    I watched the game also, and I did think LSU was the better team. The difference, of course, is that LSU actually won.

    Arguing who is better between LSU and Alabama is a moot point. We should be debating who are the two best teams. And LSU and Alabama are the two best teams.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    A good point of course. I can only say again that with Alabama having already lost to LSU, I think another team deserves a shot at them.

    As others have said, nothing is fair about the crappy BCS but allowing Alabama a rematch against a team they lost at home to is bullcrap. Oklahoma State deserves their chance, regardless of who they lose to.

    Why do they deserve it though? Because they didn't lose to LSU? That doesn't really hold much water. Do you want the best two teams playing or do you want the #1 team vs someone they haven't played? I want the best two teams playing and I simply don't believe that Oklahoma State is one of those teams.

    Alabama already had their chance, AT HOME, and blew it. They shouldn't get another chance. I hate LSU, but even as a LSU hater I don't think it's fair to them to have to play Alabama again after beating them once. I also happen to think Oklahoma State is a top 2-3 team in the country. They had one bad game, other than that they have dominated all season long.

    Why should LSU play a tougher schedule, beat Bama in Tuscaloosa, play a conference championship game and then HAVE to beat Bama a second time?

    Because Alabama is the second best team in the country and the current system is set up to try and make the best team play the second best team in the final game of the season.

    Why shouldn't they? I can't stand the SEC in football. I don't like their fans and I really don't think that SEC football is as good as their fans seem to think it is. In every other sport you can play a team you already played and beat in the "playoffs" and that is what the BCS title game is, even though its only a one round playoff. Alabama has only played one bad game this year and it came against the #1 team in the country and they still took it to overtime.

    How pissed would you be if you were LSU and you lost to 'Bama for the NC?

    #1) You've played the toughest schedule in recent memory and went undefeated

    #2 You already beat 'bama on their homefield.

    #3) Bama didn't even play in the SECCG and LSU has to risk 1 more game to get to the NC in the first place.

    IMO, LSU should be crowned NC as soon as they step off the field of beating UGA on Saturday (assuming that happens).

    That's something that LSU is going to have to deal with. The National Championship involves the #1 and #2 teams in the country. And Oklahoma St. isn't one of them.

    1. Doesn't mean anything. The rules for the Championship are what they are.

    2. You were lucky to do so.

    3. Alabama is the easily one of the best two teams in the SEC. They just happen to be in the same division as the other team that is simply better than everyone else in the country.

    The rules are set up to try and make the best two teams play each other in the National Championship BCS Title game. Those two teams are LSU and Alabama.

    The idea that you can't rematch someone in a "playoff" is ridiculous. What sport do we have where rematch's can't happen where there is a regular season and something resembling a championship? Baseball has it. The NFL has it. The NBA has it. The NHL has it. College Basketball has it. College Baseball has it (Where two SEC teams played in the finals this past year). Lower levels of college football have it. Everyone has a possibility of playing someone for a championship that they have already beaten when it comes to sports that have regular seasons and playoffs.

    Re: BCS blather

    What is sad is that LSU can lose the SEC championship game and probably still make the NC game. So you'd have 2 teams from the SEC playing for the NC that didn't even win their conference.

    And while I'm sure LSU will come out and play their hearts out in the SEC championship game, what is the motivation for them to win if they have a slot in the NC game no matter what?

    It's all a bunch of malarkey in my book.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I am hoping that it somehow happens. So that there is only one undefeated team in college football who doesn't sniff the title game.
