    More impressive is the fact that LSU stunk it up in the first half but was able to turn it on with relative ease and hang 42 on Georgia while they didn't score again.

    Does LSU send you a check or something? Why do you care?

    Besides, this is how it works in the NFL Minor Leagues: Schools get good, go to bowl games, reap the profits, get busted for violations, get suspensions, new teams step up in their absence and do the same thing.

    I think this is done for two reasons:
    1. Gotta' spread the money around.
    2. Gotta' keep up the appearance of a clean game.

    I'm thinking some corrupt "Don King like" character runs the whole thing and I wouldn't be surprised if it's all figured out ahead of time just like a Don King boxing match. I said a while back on these forums that you were gonna' get an LSU vs Alabama title game whether anyone liked it or not and I was right. Why? TV Ratings. Because who is gonna' tune in and watch TCU vs Boise St.? No one.

    Impossible you say? Yeah, Congress participates in massive insider trading but College Football doesn't? Right!

    Enjoy your "game".

    At any point in those 50 years did you come to realize 1st downs don't count for points?

    We don't think of it as stinking up.

    This is just my opinion - but it is based on having seen every game thus far.

    It appears that Les's strategy with the tougher opponents is to at first, simply hold them at bay. Prevent them from putting up a big lead. Play semi-conservatively. Feel them out.

    Then at half time him and the coaching staff and the team talk about what they've learned about what the opponent is doing, figure out ways to exploit their weaknesses, etc. But the most important factor seems to be that LSU continues to play with full force throughout the game while the other guy is wearing out. Eventually a small lead is taken - and when a lot of coaches would dial it back and hope to just hold their lead - instead Les dials it up, making more aggressive play calling on both offense and defense - to gain an decisive lead as quickly as possible.


    That's just my theory.

    TCU and Boise St. aren't in the title game because neither of them is the #1 team in the country. By any metric. TCU - really? They finished 10-2, do you even follow college football?

    DUH


    Why do folks who aren't college football fans like to stick their noses into it and whine about it?

    USC did not play in a National Championship Game in 2003. They also do not have a crystal football trophy from that year.

    They lost two games in 2006 and weren't named #1 in any poll. Where the fuck did that even come from?

    Media and ESPN are just tools of the SEC.
