Alabama won it’s second national championship in three seasons by crushing previously unbeaten LSU 21-0 at the last night in New Orleans.
I do not know what was more impressive: Alabama spanking LSU the way it did or the fact that Alabama did so in what was considered a home game for LSU. I mean sure ‘Bama fans traveled well to the game last night, but make no mistake New Orleans is LSU country through and through.
Last night’s game also signaled just how strong a football conference the Southeastern Conference is. Sure Alabama didn’t win the SEC (LSU did). Hell it didn’t even win the SEC West (again, LSU did). I just do not think it is fair to penalize Alabama because it plays in by far the best conference in college football. Alabama and LSU were head and shoulders the best two teams in the country, the final score notwithstanding.
And to you Oklahoma State fans who STILL feel that your team should have been given a chance: enough. You had a chance during the regular season, but you lost to Iowa State. And I do not care if you were dealing with a horrific plane crash, it’s not an excuse for the Cowboys to lay an egg with so much on the line. That’s like Alabama or LSU losing to Vanderbilt – that (spit) shouldn’t happen.
Plus, giving up 38 points to Stanford does not prove you are the best either. Hell Oklahoma State may have given up 50 to either Alabama or LSU.
As I said in an earlier rant, the BCS done its job. The two best teams in the country played last night.
Congrats to Alabama for being the best team in college football. Congrats to the SEC for being the dominant league (again).
