I’m all about the rings so its time to give props to our newest Champs congrats to the 2011 Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tide redeemed an earlier loss to the LSU Tigers by making the Kicks they missed back in November. The Tide rolled with strong D and efficient offense to a 21-0 win that was well YAWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alabama is a great team and they showed that last night. They probably should have beat LSU earlier this year but missed 4 kicks and lost by 3. They play terrific D, have a Stud RB and an offense that is efficient. They are an excellent coached football team on all levels. Nick Saban deserves a lot of credit for the way they play. I got a good chuckle when he went ballistic on a offside call with 5 min left up 21, it was Bama’s 1st penalty of the game and it shows how much of a perfectionist he is. Game is in hand you completed your goal and you still get pissed about 5 yards love it.
Les Miles LSU Tigers went thru a murderer’s row of a schedule unscathed only to get a rematch with a team they had already beaten once. They played 9 ranked teams, their out of conference schedule pitted them against 2 BCS bowl game winners 1(Oregon) on neutral site, the other (WV) on the road. They finished the season with Wins over 4 of the 5 BCS bowl game winners, Oregon, Arkansas, West Virginia and Alabama. It all went for not after getting shut out last night.
Alabama held LSU to 92 total yards, IN A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!!!! Bama’s D definitely deserves credit but Jordan Jefferson and Les Miles deserve some blame as well. Saying Jefferson was atrocious is an understatement. It’s a gross miscarriage of justice. Miles had run 2 qb’s all season long but decided to go with the more athletic of the two. Adjustments are a big part of Football and great coaches make the necessary adjustments to win, Miles didn’t do that. In the 1st half the Tiger’s yardage was 6, 0, 17, -22 and 7 for a grand total of 8 yards. Now what do you do at half, make adjustments. Try something else. I mean WTF give Lee a shot.
Look I love college football and I don’t want to take anything away from Alabama, but the NC game should be the best game of the year and it seems like every game has been a yawn fest since the USC VS Texas game. Something must be done. I don’t really care about a playoff system, yes it would be nice but im not a proponent of it but it would give use more meaningful exciting games. Could you imagine if the OSU Stanford game had more meaning? Or make a rule 2 teams from the same conference can’t play in the title game. Or conferences can make a rule that no matter who wins what division the top 2 teams in BCS poll play for conference championship and the right to play for the national title.
Kids need time to study, 95% of collegiate athletes don’t end up playing professionally so school is important. Playoffs would make the season longer and likely take place during Finals and the longer season would be more taxing for the kids.
I’m getting off topic this is a post about the Champs so congrats again for the 2nd time in three years the Alabama Crimson Tide are our National Champs. For Nick Saban it’s his 3rd BCS title and the way he coaches he could be in line for a couple more.
