    LSU was the most talented team & the draft will soon reflect that. I guess I keep forgetting that slingblade is on the sideline & his asinine decisions will always negatively change a game or 2.

    While I do think that Notre Dame was not the #1 Team in the Country, and still being a little aggravated with Bama not playing Florida, Georgia or South Carolina for 2 years in a row during the regular season, it's really hard to say 'They aren't that good'.

    In fact I’m not sure anyone would care b/c all you have to do is simply look at the trophy case.

    We all said it before. The REAL NC Title game happened on Dec. 1st. This January game was just for the REST of College Football Fans

    The fact remains though that LSU is one Crystal Ball away from being tied with BAMA on 'BCS' NC Titles
    at least that makes me smile lol!
    Yeah, I give up on LSU winning another BCS NAT CHAMP as long as slingblade is there. He alone is to blame for the loss @ home this year.

    On a serious note. McCarron did break Peytons previous record of TD-INT ratio.. Ended the season with 30TD'S-3ints. Not to bad right there.

    When did Pay A Ton become Sam Bradford? Terrible troll attempt @ best.

    I said he would light up y'all's secondary, which he did.

    Eh, I was far from the only person who said as much. St. Nick himself said that this was the biggest group of overachievers he's been a part of. So again, don't act like I just pulled this out of thin air.

    So many people are saying the same thing .....
    He's too loyal to make the right decisions to put us over the edge.

    No, you pulled it out of some other physical location that will go unmentioned.

    Let's translate for you beyond the X's and O's that you don't understand particularly well either.

    Saban said, "Basically, I think this team over-achieved." Translation: They managed to win back-to-back BCS championships which hadn't previously been achieved. And they did it with a heavy complement of four- and five-star recruits (Landon Collins, anyone?), with a smattering of three-stars and three All-American offensive linemen and three more AA's on defense and a couple more soon-to-be All-Americans like next season. So there wasn't a whole lot of "overachieving" necessary. Capisce?

    “To be honest, I think this team has kind of exceeded expectations,” Saban said. “If you look at all the players that we lost last year, the leadership that we lost, the injuries that we’ve had

    'Bama did indeed exceed expectations. They were the preseason No. 2 and finished No. 1 by winning the national championship. So that's exceeding expectations - though it's all relative of course to what expectations you're exceeding - or unexceeding (thinking of those co-consensus preseason No. 1's the Who and USKitty-LitterC).

    Whatever dude, I'm just showing what Saban actually said. I took it similar to what Jacob said in context as it was repeated on ESPN Radio. Saban thought this team were indeed over achievers and did not expect to see what he saw as the year went on.

    The over achievers were in College Station. Bama did what they had to do and are the champions. The BCS title game was a joke but until we have a playoff we will get to have these debates every year.
