National Championship Game Open Thread

Well, it'll probably be a short thread, since everyone has already said they're not watching tonight. But for those that are, it's the end of college football on the field for awhile. Gameday on. Pregame in about half an hour.  It'll keep us busy till the Two and a Half Men Open thread starts later tonight.

All jokes aside about the quality or boring nature of the game...this Bama defense is SCARY. Who are the big names on this defense and how many can we expect to go pro?

They lose a lot next year.  Add the possible early departures, and they could lose even more.  If Hightower and Kirkpatrick leave, which they very well could, they would be losing 3/4 of their LB and 3/4 of their DBs.

While I don't particularly care for Alabama, I'm rooting for all of its juniors to have big games.  Chase your NFL dreams, gentlemen!

Color me surprised that McCarron is absolutely outplaying Jefferson. Nothing else about this game has been overly surprising, but he's playing a damn solid game right now.

high-scoring than that last one, anyway. Six-zip already in the second quarter! 


Final score: AL 24 LSU 0. All eight of AL's scores are field goals.

LSU looks incredibly unspectacular tonight. Give Bama credit at least for trying to throw downfield and fake the field goal. This game is still boring, though. It's like LSU doesn't realize this is a title game. Then again, maybe it isn't. If LSU keeps it close they could still end up the AP champs.

I think bama has 5 senior starters and up to 4 jrs could leave, I think people expect Kirkpatrick and Hightower to go, possibly Lester too.
