Bama beats them 31-7?
OT - National Championship Game "What If"
LSU has beaten the #2, 6, 7, 18, and 23 ranked teams (final AP poll). Only one of those games was at home.
They are the best teams hands down. They beat Alabama and Alabama didn't play anyone other than LSU.
How awsome would it be for LSU to lose the National Championship game and still be declared National Champions?
It would be the final sign of the Armegeddon. The whole pathetic innane system would come crashing down. Even people in Uzbekistan who think that football is soccer and colleges are where you go to attend classes would hear about it and make fun of us.
This must happen.
in the early years of college football.
Pretty much what I was thinking. Unless LSU loses big to Bama I don't know know how you still don't say LSU is the best team in the Nation.
It's so annoying to listen to all these talking heads completely ignoring this possibilty.
Or am I wrong and the winner of the game is automatically decrlared the champ ignoring the polls?
....for those of us who have been saying for years that the BCS computer needs someone to open "cmd.exe" and type in "Format C:" at the prompt.
A precedent was set in 2006. Even if things are "different" this year, it still shouldn't happen.
it is the National Championship Game...period...feel any way you like but that is the deal
Not really. It's the "BCS Championship" game. I don't believe the NCAA recognizes the winner as an official NCAA National Champion.
Didn't say anything about "official" or "NCAA". Virtually everyone recognizes it as the National Championship game, so it is.
Alabama. They won the game that counted, so they should be the champion.
In the 1992 basketball season, the Fab Five's freshman year, we lost to Ohio State twice during the season. However, we played them in the tournament, and beat them in the Elite Eight, so we advanced and they went home. That's how a playoff works, whether it's 64 teams or only 1 game. It isn't the BCS's fault that the voters and the computers agree that LSU and Bama are the best two teams in the country. This year, it did what it was designed to do.
But the BCS's motto is "every game counts". That is literally their twitter name: twitter.com/EveryGameCounts So according to the system, the game that LSU already won was one that counted.
The BCS bills itself as a not-playoff that preserves the importance of every regular season game. Therefore, there are few situations in which I would say that LSU doesn't deserve the AP championship. If Alabama beats LSU, they get the Coaches Poll but the AP Poll should go to LSU.
The computers in no way agree that Alabama is #2. In fact they give a 4-2 edge to Oklahoma State.
It's a shame OSU didn't get a shot. Blackmon against those CB's would be fun to watch. And WVU put up more yards than anyone else did against LSU and OSU runs the same system, much better too. I'll turn the game on in the 2nd half when LSU decides to show up and blow Alabama up and hope Saban's head explodes.
