And dead on about the playoff thing. I said the same thing. If there were a playoff and you had Bama as the 2 seed and LSU as the 1, you wouldve just watched those 2 teams destroy everyone until they wound up playing in the title game anyway. It wouldve been a complete waste of time. Bama won the title because they deserved it. They were a better team than LSU and they got a chance to prove it after losing a very close game that they shouldve won the first time.
One could argue the only reason they lost aside from missing FGs, was the ridiculous college OT system. If LSU had kicked off to Bama and Bama afforded the opportunity to punt instead of each team getting the ball automatically at the 25, I seriously doubt LSU ever gets into FG range in the first place. Their offense did much of nothing in that game as well. Bama deserved to play in that BCS title game and anyone who argues different is a ****ing moron.
