    that would be a good game - 2 contrasting styles.

    Oklahoma St deserves to be in the title game after their rout of Oklahoma.

    apparently not enough voters agreed with you.

    I guess they see losing to an unranked Iowa State as a bigger loss than losing to the #1 team in OT.

    And about it being a good game because of contrasting styles? Ask Oregon, West VA or the other offensive powerhouse teams about how well that contrast worked for them.

    LSU didnt get a freaking first down until the 3rd quarter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IfGeorgia recievers hadnt dropped a couple of TD passes they would have been in a huge hole.

    Where lucky to bein the game at halftime.

    They lost to Iowa St. Iowa St. finished 6-6 and is not in the Top 25. Iowa St held OSU's supposedly awesome offense - who turned the ball over 5 times - to only 17 points in regulation. LSU's defense would tear that pathetic offense a new one.


    Wouldn't even be close. The "contrasting style" would begin to show at some point in the 3rd quarter when LSU takes a 7 pt lead and proceeds to run it up to a 34 point lead before the game ends.

    LSU and Bama are far more evenly matched. I think OT is a stupid way to settle a game anyway. This gives LSU the chance to finish what they started beat the gumps in regulation. They are evenly matched on offense and defense, what will make the difference is Bama's dismal special teams performance - esp. in the area of field goal accuracy - and LSU's excellent special teams performance,

    Turns out you don't get any points for 1st downs. You do, however, for touchdowns. LSU doesn't really need an offense. Their defense and special teams sets the offense up with easy scores (or scores it outright themselves). And by the 3rd qtr - our offensive line has worn the crap out of the opponents defensive line - and they break, allowing our running game to pound the victory home.


    Right - if Georgia were a better team - they would have won - you're right.


    The score at half time doesn't count.

    If you look back, lots of teams were doing well against LSU in the first half. But by the end of the game they were thoroughly thrashed. One of the biggest advantages LSU has is their depth, especially on defense. That is also one of the advantages Alabama has had throughout the season. By the 4th quarter the other team has been beaten up and run over so hard they cannot play worth a damn.

    BCS is a joke. You should go check out the Harris and Coaches poll and see where some people put some teams. Its just absolutely absurd. Playoff Now!!

    The really funny thing is that Mike Slive (SEC Commissioner) suggested a Plus 1 playoff for the championship back in 2008. The ACC people were willing to listen, but not one other conference would even entertain a discussion about it.

    That would have put Ok State and Bama in a game to play the winner of LSU and probably Stanford.

    Maybe if someone had listened back then......
