    I find that 95% of people who have a plan for a college football playoff have a plan that is totally unrealistic. Nearly 100% of these people rarely or never go to a college football game.

    I have to agree that LSU/Bama playing for the National Championship fails... but what would you do about it?

    The BCS Championship game was a showcase of defensive football. If you wanted teams scoring 50 or 60 points, I am sure you were disappointed.

    As far as "seen better", perhaps you have seen teams score more. But there are very few college football defenses that were even in the same league as what was shown in that game.

    Yeah yeah yeah. Thats what you have said before.

    But LSU hung 40 points on Oregon, who were ranked #4 in the final AP poll. (40-27)

    LSU scored 41 points against Arkansas, who ended the year at #5 on the AP. (41-17)

    LSU burned W.VA for 47 points, and the Mountaineers were ranked #17 after kicking Clemson's ass. (47-21)

    LSU beat Georgia 42-10 after being down 10-0 at the half. Georgia ended the year ranked #19 in the AP poll.



    And against Alabama they scored 0 points. They only got beyond the 50 yardline once. And that was in the 4th quarter, after which they were promptly slapped backwards.

    Bama, meanwhile, played an almost perfect game. Only one touchdown, but scored 5 times on field goals, held the #1 team completely in check, had only one penalty for 5 yards late in the 4th quarter, and did not turn the ball over against a defense that prided itself on creating turnovers.


    As I have said numerous times, it was not a high flying offensive football game. But it was a defesnive showcase. Both defenses looked stout during most of the game. (LSU's defense was simply worn-out by the end of the 3rd quarter).

    LSU was #1 in the AP for 11 weeks in a row. You may not have liked the game, but to claim both teams sucked is simply BS. The two best teams in college football for the 2011 season were on that field.

    NCAA is run by a bunch of short sighted idiots

    They are in love with their bowl games which are nothing but exhibition games. They dont mean anything because they don't prove anything

    Who cares if the number 3 team from one conference beats the number 2 team from another?

    And why would you have a regular season, stop in November and then pick it up again in January?

    The best college team of all time was the 1972 USC Trojans - Newsweek had an articleon them titled "Southern Cals Super Bowl." (the best team that has ever been coached???)

    I like that you state it as if it were fact. And just as an FYI, the youngest players from the '72 team would be 59 years old, so I doubt they would have made much of a showing in January.

    According to this link Nebraska's '71 teams is the #1 team of all time. But your '72 USC team came in second. ESPN.com - Page2 - Best college football teams of all time


    According to this link, Nebraska's '95 team is the beat of all time. The Miami '01 team was second and your team was ranked 3rd. PARADE Magazine | Parade.com

    This link lists the '95 Nebraska squad as the best ever too, but your '72 USC team is #5.
    Greatest College Football Teams of All Time (Single Season)

    Wow, another link showing Nebraska's '95 team as the best.
    All-time greatest college football teams: Ten all-time greatest college football teams - Sun Sentinel




    But this is all nonsense. This is not the first time you have posted claims about some team from the 70s in response to current football champions. Even if the '72 USC squad was the best ever, this does not mean both teams sucked. You just hate the SEC.

    But the upside is that you got to see an SEC team lose in the BCS championship game. That has never happened in the history of the BCS.

    No. It was the '95 Huskers.
