|I'm not crying because Bama lost. I'm crying because this whore just said I look like Jay Cutler.|
First things first, that game was fucking shit. That was a WASTE of 3+ hours. If you aren’t in 100% agreement, don’t worry, you’re just wrong. There’s a big difference between a defensive struggle and complete and utter offensive ineptitude. Yes, both defenses are great. So what? SOMEONE still should have scored. Everyone wanted to bill this year’s Bama/LSU game as the BEST GAME EVER but it wasn’t even close. It was a terrible game and one that I never want to see again.
Second, let’s play Colin Cowherd’s favorite game called “Hypothetical Asshole” for a moment. Say that Oklahoma beats Okie State and Oregon beats Stanford which are both quite possible. We won’t say “what if Arkansas beats LSU” because that isn’t going to happen. Everyone else runs the table as expected. That leaves LSU in the BCS title game with Bama, Oklahoma, Boise State, and Oregon in the driver’s seat to be the Tigers’ final opponent. Obviously, if Okie State wins out, they are #2. Same with Stanford being #3 but we already are aware of that.
I, personally, do not want to ever watch a Bob Stoops team buttfuck a National Championship again. I’ve seen it too many times before. If I’m a voter (and this site is getting close to becoming a member of the Harris Poll!) and have the option of those 4 teams, I’m leaving the Sooners and Good ‘Ol JR off my ballot out of spite. Who would I vote for then? That’s easy, Boise State. Oregon already had their shot, got steamrolled, and has sort of proven that their offense doesn’t fly with SEC schools. Alabama is not even an option to me. They shouldn’t be an option at all.
Do you really want to see a rematch of a 9-6 game? You can’t convince me that you do. Try as you might, no one will be able to convince me that THAT Bama team is the 2nd best team in the country. I had pretty much this exact same post in 2006 during the whole debate about whether or not OSU and Michigan should play again (which I was right on about then since both of those teams got destroyed in their bowls to prove that Michigan did NOT get hosed). What’s that? You want me to list reasons why Nick Saban should make plans for New Orleans but only for the Sugar Bowl? Don’t mind if I do!
*They would not have even won the SEC West (in this scenario so why would they play for a title again?)
*Lost a home game in which they were favored by 4.5 points
*Tried to run a WR pass(?) in the 4th quarter of a tie game
*Put a guy back to return a punt with a sprained ankle
*Couldn’t even score a touchdown at home
*Again, they already had their shot
*That game was terrible
*If you had a kicker that wasn’t doo-doo, you wouldn’t be in this position in the first place
*If the college football season truly is a season-long playoff, Alabama just got eliminated
*Pssssst—ESPN doesn’t want you to know this, but the SEC isn’t very good this year (the Big 12 is MUCH better)
*I never want to watch AJ McCarron throw another football for the rest of my life
*If you can’t beat a team at home, why should I believe that the result would be any different in LSU’s backyard
Feel free to add your own reasons and thoughts in the comments. And while I am a massive honk for the Boise State program, they deserve a shot at the title a hell of a lot more than Roll Damn Tide does. But this isn’t so much a pro-Boise post as it is an anti-Tide post. Much like every person ever born in the South (other than MUDawg of course!), rematches are fucking stupid. So just stop. Leave the title-grabbing to those that know what a touchdown is. Re-match clauses only exist in the world of pro wrestling anyway.
I just want to end this by saying that Tyrann Mathieu is the biggest piece of shit that I’ve ever seen. What kind of criminal just Jim Duggan’s a guy on a punt? I hope he gets Second Miled. HOOOOOOOOO!
