I hate to be the hysterical fan over-reacting to the result of one game....
Howeva, evil oversigning Nick Saban is a coaching genius. Hate the guy, but must respect. While Miles and LSU somehow pulled off the victory earlier in the year, Bama was the better team for most of that game as well. Did LSU deserve the national title given the results from the regular season?....probably, as it is really hard to beat a team twice in a year, let alone a conference rival.
Given almost two months to prepare for this game Saban showed why he is the best in the business. Miles has recruited all the talent in the world and has made some of the luckiest/gutsiest calls we have seen in recent college football years, but as a tactition there is no competition. Clearly they are not in the same league. Saban just pooped on the Hat. And I just realized, if not for bama choking last year against Auburn...this could have been a three-peat...amazing for modern day college football.
LSU showed absolutely no preparation on offense, no imagiation, no adjustments from the first game. That offense was pathetic....Alabama came out throwing on 1st down and totally changed up their game plan.
As for next year's game, I fear Bama's defense. I said this after watching what Michigan State did to Denard with their 3 and 4 star recruits. Bama, with Saban and their exclusively 4 and 5 star defense...all the way down to their 3rd string, will eat up our one dimensional offense.
All that being said, congrats Bama, evil Satan, and cheating SEC. If nothing else Saban, you prove that assholes finish first.
