An LSU/Alabama Rematch Would be Terrible for College Football
I made plans all week to make sure and watch the #1 vs. #2 showdown of LSU and Alabama on Saturday and I wouldn't go as far as saying I as disappointed, but I am comfortable saying that I would not be in favor of a rematch.
Lets get this straight, Alabama had the opportunity to knock off LSU at home where they were a five point favorite and they couldn't get it done. That was their chance and they need to be satisfied with going to another BCS bowl game if they win out, not the National Championship. There are plenty of other teams that deserve their shot at the Tigers. First off, if Oklahoma State wins their remaining three games, they will be the team. There is such a wide margin in the standings between the top two squads and everyone else that there will be no controversy whatsoever.
Boise State fans can complain all they want about the newest edition of the BCS Standings, but the real team that got the shaft was Stanford. How can an undefeated team in the Pac-12 still be behind a one-loss Alabama squad? I hope that if the Cardinal can beat Oregon this Saturday that they will leapfrog the Crimson Tide in the newest edition of the BCS Standings.
If you haven't figured it out yet, the human polls will not allow Boise State to play in a National Championship. If Oklahoma State or Stanford wins out, BSU has no chance and I believe that if Oregon beats Stanford this weekend OR Oklahoma beats Oklahoma State on the first Saturday in December, the Sooners would jump Boise State as well. I said it after the 3rd week of play and I am sticking by it, Boise State can not make the BCS Championship, but going to the Sugar Bowl or Fiesta Bowl is a pretty good consolation prize if you ask me.
