BCS title game: notes and thoughts

What is there to say about tonight’s game?

Despite the fact that LSU had been thoroughly dominated in the first half, they only found themselves down by nine. Nothing for the Tiger offense had worked. On five drives, they had four 3 and outs. The Alabama defense was standing on their heads.

But this was LSU. They had trailed in games before. They would come out fresh in the second half and the game would still be competitive…

As a fan of college football, I cannot wait to see tonight’s national championship game between the top ranked LSU Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide. I expect this to be a great game, quite possibly the best national championship since Texas beat USC in 2006.

This will be the second time that the two teams have played this year. In the 13 previous BCS title games, it’s the first time that this game will feature a regular season rematch.
