#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).
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.
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
