LSU did everything to keep viewers around Americana watching. Was for the numbers, regards.
Dang, the 12th Man Foundation is giving away a limited number of Johnny Football t shirts at the campus vicinity of the 12th man statue. Not in the stores yet.
so for all the SEC homers on the RTF: are you pulling for Notre Dame to beat USC, which would set up a ND vs Ala/UGA/FLA MNC game or are you pulling for SoCal in the upset which would more than likely set up some all SEC MNC game
usc, usc, usc!!
-bama and nd would be epic.
-dawgs and nd would show the media/heisman voters what a mistake they made by not giving the trophy to johnny football and giving it to "man-tie tay-ou". headlines next day "MAN-TIE CAN'T TOTE THE RUBBER BANDS ON THE ENDS OF JARVIS JONES' DREADLOCKS"
-sec vs sec not gonna happen!
SEC RIVAL WEEK!!!!
Yes eventually the always touted 'High-Powered-no one-wants to play this team-super duper offense' will eventually beat a Top Rated Defensive Champ team. Then for years we'll re-live the HOPE and Hype that just maybe, Defense doesn't matter if you're offense is run-amuck-to the max. Maybe. B/c from what I've seen, Oregon hasn't been able to do it yet and they have had some pretty impressive Offenses over the past couple years. Some that might have even rivaled a few of those OU, Texas and USC High Powered Offensive Champ Teams. Guess we'll wait and see. Chip won't hang around forever, sounds like he's already got the itch.
Honestly though I'd like to see Notre Dame go. I think they have a good body of work behind them and that they have played a magnificent season. Up and Down the field, and some close emotional games that they've overcome and at some pretty impressive venues. I just don't see them coming out flat against USC. USC Will come out guns a blazing but if the Irish can what? (We all know the answer) -Withstand the Surge!!!- If they can do that and get their feet under them, they should take it home. I mean these kids will SURELY understand the importance of THIS game. It's ALL down to THIS GAME! If they don't know that, somethings wrong in the Locker room.
I do think however that it's going to get ugly in Bryant Denny. Considering the picture of Cam Newton laughing at Alabama is hanging in the locker room and has been there for how long now?, man it's going to get nasty and AUB will QUIT before the time runs out. I think this one will ignite some serious emotions leaving AUB fans feeling like they are getting kicked while down.....and Bama fans not giving a shit either way LOL!
I can't believe anyone outside of CA would pull for USC. I would pull for anyone that was playing against USC. Not to talk too much smack go IRISH. Even the Irish hater should admit that ND is having a great year
i said bama/notre dame "would be" epic. i never said will be epic. with a history like 25% of college football's national titles(ancient, modern, claimed by ad's, et al.) between the participants the game's hype would be enormous! you may note i also gave an opinion on ga/nd as well. i have seen alabama play this year too. i have currently shifted my "poo poo eater into neutral";-)
now as to sec vs sec: if we assume you are correct and georgia beats bama, gators beat 'noles and usc beats nd,....... then the bcs puts ga/fla in the title game, the entire world will protest and put the new ncaa playoff system in place by jan 15, 2013. no possible way they are gonna replay that matchup when it was a beatdown a month prior. had it been close as bama/lsu was last year, maybe a rematch could have been justified? under the circumstances there is no way. if bama wins the sec champ game and nd falls then gators/tide could be possible(i still doubt it though).
just trying to bring you out of the bushes this morning. you will enjoy my evolution into "irish hater". when coach Parsegian and the irish beat bama in two consecutive bowl games in the early seventies i became a "hater". both games were for national titles and were decided by a total of three points. i was seven and eight years old at the time and was traumatized by my favorite team's losses. my respectful but seething hatred continues to this day;-) i did find some comfort in the hit cornelius bennett put on steve burlein in that regular season matchup in the '80's.(though legal then it gets a flag today bobby). i do still cry like a baby every single time i watch "rudy" though!:oops:
