Let me amend my earlier statement. I don't want an Alabama-LSU rematch. Oregon-LSU I could maybe stomach but not two SEC teams in the championship. The outcry for playoffs would be too loud to ignore. Why you ask? Just look at this game. Who would have thought ISU would beat OSU? Any team can beat any other team. No Alabama-LSU rematch.
OT: Oklahoma State Vs. Iowa State
Holy Crap! ISU just might do this.
WHEEL OF DOOM (illinois '10 flashbacks!!!!)
Great defense on that opening touchdown of overtime.
Welcome to Big 12 Football.
Anyone having else having an Illinois 2010 flashback?
Does it remind you of anything? It was the same play Illinois burned on us Last Year
Gonna get close and throw fades to Blackmon until he snags one
Oh my v2.0
wow. this one might as well be over
that should be it.
Every game's a playoff game.
and more WOW, INT
How bad does it suck to be an OSU fan right now?
so who shall it be:
oregon or alabama?
No matter what, it looks like a rematch.
I think Oklahoma jumps both of they win out...
I'm with Oregon, if they win out. They've vastly improved since the LSU game in September, and peaking at the right time.
Please anyone but Alabama/LSU again! Watch LSU lose in the SEC Championship game.
Listening to the media slobber over 2 SEC schools in the national championship game...that will suck beyond words.
To beat LSU and/or Bama.
If they set up an in conference rematch where the SEC is guaranteed another title after 2006 where everyone said "nooo, we can't do that", I'm going to strangle somebody.
It's definitely better than the PSU lion growl.
Did anyone really think that OSU was the legit #2 team in the country? I think not. And Bama needs to keep quiet, you scored 9 points on your home field.
They scored 6 points at home. Oregon scored 27 against the same defense on a neutral site. West Virginia put up 21. Hell, Kentucky put up 7 in Baton Rouge. Western Kentucky put up 9. Alabama does not have a good enough offense to get a rematch.
to compare scores. The game dictated that both offenses be more conservative to not lose it for their defenses. Bama's offense has been qute good in every other game against a competitive schedule, and they outgained LSU. A lot of people don't like the way Saban does things, but look at the product on the field and there is no other team as good.
Now, whether the BCS will agree or not? That's anybody's guess. Oregon definitely has a leg up with the opportunity to play in a conference championship game.
You guys hearing the song choice? Hahaha
Reinforces everything Brian's been saying about piped-in music around here for the last three years.
Yay, 2 SEC teams going to the championship game! Isn't this a great day you guys? Won't that be fun?
Had to be some of the worst defense and tackling I've ever seen from a top 10 team.
Great game for Iowa State.
After '06 I hope to never see a rematch in the championship game.
The two teams who seem most likely to play LSU in the title game—Oregon and Alabama—have already played LSU once.
Realizing that was the inspiration for that comment. I especially don't want to see 2 SEC teams in the championship game.
At least it would be two conference champions. Alabama won't even be a division winner. I guess I'm mildly pulling for Oregon. Oklahoma's loss at home to Texas Tech is by far the worst loss by a top 10 team this year.
so what if Arkansas beats LSU now? and is OU screwed over now because now they don't get a shot to beat the #2 team in the country? will anyone care if houston goes undefeated?
Flag on the final td play?
I saw that too. Well I saw ESPN's flag indicator thing come up for a second, not an actual flag. Maybe it was a mistake by ESPN, or maybe it was just on the D.
The winner in Bedlam is still going to be in the title game (especially if it's Oklahoma). Voters will jump them to avoid a rematch.
I have watched quite a few games the last 2 years called by Joe Tessitore and I gotta say he is the man. Very underrated announcer.
#1 LSU still has to play #6 Arkansas
#2 Alabama & #3 Oregon take care of business this week & next
Who plays in National Champ? Alabama vs. Oregon, both at 11-1, with their losses to #3 LSU?
What a joke. The BCS is really causing me to be more jaded each passing year with CFB because it's such a sham. Why do I put so much of my time to invest in watching games & following CFB for such an unsatisfying conclusion?
the trojans they could very well upset the ducks tommorow.
I actually wouldn't mind a 'Bama/Oregon NC game, simply because it would screw over one of the biggest douches in college football.
That being said, fuck Saban.
It doesn't make a difference. If the playloffs had LSU and Bama in different brackets they would meet in the Championship game anyway. Tonight just proved LSU and Bama are the two best teams by far this year. Hate to say it.
It proved that Oklahoma State isn't as good as some were claiming they were. It said absolutely nothing about either LSU or Alabama. I think Oregon would stomp Bama right now.
LSU beat Alabama in ot by a field goal. Oregon couldn't move the ball on LSU. Just face it Oregon doesnt win big games. Oregon beats up on teams with half-assed defenses.
Oregon dropped 27 on LSU. They moved the ball quite nicely, especially considering the injuries they had at the time. LSU/Bama was a close game, but I think LSU played way better in the season opener, Bama looked awful, and Oregon has gotten stronger as the season has gone on. But we will see what the coming weeks hold.
