When it comes time, depending on the situation, whoever is calling the PAC-12 Championship game or the Oklahoma State-OU game would have to really push for a 1-loss team over Bama, like how Gary Danielson got Florida into the BCS Championship in 2006.
The best thing OU has going to them is that their game against OSU is the same day as the SECCG, meaning they don't have two weeks without playing like Michigan and Ohio State did in 2006, and they will be playing, and Alabama will not.
Also, it is a bit ironic that the LSU-Oregon game may have helped Bama more than LSU at this point.
It's funny, but I don't think many schools have the "relationship" that we have with Miles. I mean, recently I told someone how awesome it has been to see him "grow as a coach" over the past 7 seasons. He started as a guy who was thrown in over his head, and then had a hurricane to deal with, and responded almost perfectly.... ALMOST. He kicked off his star player. He has dealt with "replacing" coordinators flawlessly, even if he did make the mistake of putting them in positions they couldn't handle. He had inconceivable coaching lapses in 2009 and 2010, and followed those games with last minute comebacks weeks later. He had to suspend his starting QB. He now is coaching the #1 team in the biggest regular season game in LSU history.
With all that, I read that article with a huge smile on my face because we have a special coach in Baton Rouge.
He very much is the best analyst I have seen. He knows and understands the game. He frequently tells you what will happen on a play before it happens, and he sees the entire field every play. Fans hate him because he shares his opinions. Guys like Gus Johnson are fan favorites because they live in the present and have exciting voices, but he brings nothing to FOOTBALL. That is why Johnson can be plugged into any sport (insert Verne "OH MY!"). Danielson, on the other hand, is a football analyst, and he is damn good at it.
LSU fans have zeroed in on that Ware isn't in Richardson's class (which he isn't), but they also seem to miss that about 10 times Saturday, Danielson said that he cannot find a weakness on this team.
He's right. Ware is a good RB. Richardson is an elite RB.
You are not an elite RB when your career long run is 26 yards. Richardson had an insane run today that showed he was on another level. Don't get bent out of shape about Bama having a better RB. Ware is not the best in the country, but he is good enough to win a championship with.
I was saying these exact things to the TV. If Moore was wearing purple and gold with the #12, few LSU fans would have seen the difference. Lee has proven he can complete a very high percentage of passes against weak teams. Two of his TD passes tonight were lame ducks that were just begging Toledo to intercept.
All inside our own 30 yard line. MSU, on the other hand, had 4 drives start outside the 40 yard line. LSU suffocated them on those drives, giving up only 3 points (they started at the 50, and gained 25 yards).
I started in 2004, with a large influx of freshmen. I think it was the largest number of cuts Tiger Band has ever had to make that year, with most of them coming from the woodwinds. Conveniently for me, I was a clarinet player. I did make it, but that was more than nerve-wracking.
