I don't like to comment on this subject much, but I have read a bunch of stuff today on it so here it goes.
Alabama played four top 25 BCS opponents and won by an average of 14pts in each game
OSU played four top 25 BCS opponents ( including OK ) and won by an average of less than 7pts each game.
Alabama lost to LSU, #1 ranked team and it took OT and it was only by 3pts. ( to some it is considered a boring game, but I like Defense ).
OSU lost to ISU, UNRANKED.
If LSU or Alabama had lost to an unranked team this wouldn't even be an issue.
I am an Alabama fan, being so does not mean I believe Alabama deserves to play LSU more than OSU ( ok, maybe I feel that way a little LOL ).
But if you look at the above info regarding each team and the fact that Alabama is #1 on ALL defensive stats does appear to make them the better
team to face off and to give LSU the best game. It is my humble opinion that OSU would lose and lose badly to either LSU or Alabama. I believe that OSU plays in a no-defense league such as Boise St. ( another that believes every year they deserve a BCS CG shot ). OSU is of the fun-n-gun offense and I feel that both LSU and Alabama would stop them and that LSU and Alabama running games would also slow the OSU offense by holding to the ball for extended drives and eating up the clock. It would be similar to Ohio St. when they got their shot(s) and lost both times.
I am so excited that for the next 36 days I get to hear and read about how much better Bama is than LSU and that Bama beat LSU everywhere last time except the score board (which is the only place that counts), then on 10 Jan. 2012 I get to hear how much Bame should have won the game because they beat LSU everywhere except the score board... We also get to hear that because the game is in NOLA Bama didn't get a fair chance. LSU had home fied advantage....Did I forget anything Bama Fan...waaaaaaan waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan Bama fan!!!

New Orleans isn't a home game for LSU. Both teams get an equal number of tickets. And I don't hear any Bama fans whining. We lost to you in November, but now we get a second chance. The winner is the champ. The loser isn't. No need for whining.
I think people are just kinda bitter because a trip to Hawaii isn't as feasible/affordable as a trip to anywhere in the continental United States. I'm proud of the USM Golden Eagles, they've had good season and deserve a trip to Hawaii.
I think they're upset because Southern Miss turned down Penn State and are playing Nevada instead, along with most fans not being able to travel to Hawaii as mentioned above. A win against Penn State could have done a lot for that program.
Right on, Kieth. Shaking off the haters is a full time job. That's why pimp slapping the Gumps a second time is so important. We wouldn't want them to think back on all of those "things we could have done" to abvoid losing to LSU - twice.
This is the cherry on top of it all, Kieth. Drink it up.
Know how I know the fear, like accumulated man-goo, is welling up inside you? You and your little coach have FAR more to lose. Being defeated by our bad hat-wearing, grass-eating, consensus "idiot" coach would be too humiliating for your team, your coach and the entire state of Alabama. I'm sorry, Forrest, but that's just far too awesome not to happen, so I'm afraid it's going to have to go down like that. And most of the SEC (a.k.a. the teams we've been molesting all season) will be cheering us on. Turns out they don't like you very much either, at least enough to forget why they don't like us. That was actually part of the reason we molested them. To punk them out, and to make them the battered sluts of our college football apocalypse. Our b&*%ches, if you will, and oh, you will.
Because baby, we're going to dress you punks up like Lady Gaga and pimp you up and down the street your mama lives on.
Fake weed is legal. It was a team rule he wasn't aware of, not a criminal violation. They never covered "fake weed" in the team meetings, and many coaches didn't even know what it was.
Yeah, I heard Gary Danielson start the "LSU = Thugs" PR campaign. Answer me this: When was the last time LSU was hit with NCAA sanctions for anything a player did? How about Alabama? Exactly. Barking. Wrong tree. Buttkicking soon. Promise. Blueboy sleep now.
So much talk from a team's fan base that has won absolutely NOTHING this year.....N0 SEC, No West, Richardson won't even win the Heisman!!! Bama has won NOTHING, but think they are somebody......Ya'll are lucky to even have a chance to be on the same field as us! Ya'll should be in the Cotton Bowl.
