Aside from the win, my favorite part of the game was the SEC commercial "You're watching Number Six". Hell yeah.
Quite a few of my friends also commented on that commercial. Friends who aren't even fans of SEC teams. It was very awesome.

LSU managed 92 yards of total offense.



Great win for Alabama. They are a very well-coached team. One penalty (on an insignificant play), no turnovers, everyone staying inbounds in the 4th quarter....nicely done.

Succinctly put. That's the game in a nutshell.

Re: College Football 2011 Discussion

It was as much Jefferson's fault tonight. He played without any kind of urgency or aggressiveness for the most part.
That's what head coaches and quarterback coaches are for--to yell at a kid to get his ass in gear. This is on Les. He didn't have his kids ready to play. Saban had his kids ready to play. That's it. That's all there is. Saban was prepared. He had his team motivated and prepared. LSU....I don't know what the hell they were doing.

God, I wish there was a +1. Bring it on, Oklahoma State.

Jerry Jones should make it happen, outside of the BCS. Call it an "exhibition game". Let's do it in February after the Super Bowl.

Re: College Football 2011 Discussion

I was really disappointed in the BCS championship.

Admittedly I was rooting for LSU. But the opportunity to see Alabama be beaten wasn't the only factor in play. I was just really, really disappointed that we didn't get to see a more even game. I did not want to see someone get steamrolled. That just got boring and disheartening. I didn't turn it off...but I definitely thought about it, many times.

Re: College Football 2011 Discussion

You know I know the whole thing about preserving the regular season, but aren't finales supposed to be grandiose and epic? Some years we get that (Rose Bowl between USC and Texas which I still think was the best college football "championship game" in the last decade) but last night was boring and really really bad. Yeah I know we need a playoff system, but even if it was just a +1, it would be a huge improvement without tarnishing the regular season but making the end of the season feel a lot bigger.

It was boring. Game was over mid-2nd quarter. Shouldn't the playoff system have weeded out the Raiders as a "boring" team?

Just a little devil's advocate here, as I hate the BCS as well. Obviously, it worked out for me this year.

I think the real complaint that a lot of people have about last night's games is that it featured two teams who are extremely similar, yet didn't have the now-popular spread offense. Any game involving Alabama or LSU and a team with a spread offense would have been exciting, but I truly believe Alabama and LSU would beat anyone else in the field. A 4, 8, 16 team playoff very likely would have given us the same result (unless Alabama and LSU were in the same bracket).

People who don't understand football (which is A LOT of people) just want to tune in, drink a beer, and watch a receiver haul in a 50 yard pass and run untouched into the endzone. They UNDERSTAND touchdowns. They don't understand sacks, tackles for loss, broken plays, or well-defended receivers forcing the incomplete pass. They barely understand how that receiver got the ball in the first place for the touchdown; they have no concept of developing plays or even an offensive gameplan.

See what people were talking about in the Denver Pitt game. People upset that Pittsburgh's safety bit on the run and was two steps behind Thomas on the 80 yard OT reception. They don't understand why he "missed his assignment" when in fact he was doing his job, and just got outcoached on that play.

Re: College Football 2011 Discussion

Alabama or LSU may well have beaten Stanford or Oklahoma State. My point is, as one less teams (and Oklahoma State as a 1 loss team with a superior strength of schedule to Alabama) should have had the opportunity to do that on the field in a plus one, national semifinal, what have you. If Bama wins, fine. I can accept that if it's decided on the field.

However....seeing LSU founder and flounder because douchebag the wonder coach was so shell shocked he couldn't even tell his QB to open it up a little just to try and get something going on offense since Bama's defense was a concrete wall, it makes the whole thing seem even more egregious. O-State would have had a shot at that LSU team, last night. Not during the regular season, but last night? Oh yes. Les couldn't adjust for shit. The triple option isn't going to work against corners and defensive backs like Bama's, douchebag on the bayou.
