Congratulations. Last night you surely proved that Alabama was the best team in the nation in the 2011-2 college football season. I'm proud that LSU won the SEC West and the SEC Championship and you can't take that away from us - your kids may one day ask you why Bama doesn't have an SEC Championship trophy from 2011/12 - but in the end, you'll be able to point to the crystal football. It was a great ride and I'm looking forward to next year. Most of LSU's players are returning (thankfully Jordan Jefferson and Jarret Lee will not), LSU's schedule is a LOT easier than it was this past year, and I really think a veteran LSU team with a chip on its shoulder is going to be something very dangerous. Almost certainly the biggest game will again be Bama. The LSU/Bama rivalry under Miles v Saban (which stands at 3-3 now) is truly the best rivalry that college football offers.
