OK… the “Biggest Rip-Off in College Football History” might be a bit of an overstatement, but I’m listening to Brent Musberger call tonight’s college football game between Alabama and LSU and he seems to have the privalege of overstatement. Boy, does he!
I boycotted this game. I wasn’t going to watch it, and I really didn’t. But, I did have an interest. I saw a lot of great football during this Bowl Season, but was not looking forward to this game. I already saw it! And, a 9-6 game repeated as a National Championship did not generate any anticipation on my part. This was a totally new experience in in my life! I used to anticipate these “National Championship” games. This a was total farse in my opinion! Admittedly, I did watch the last quarter.
It’s amazing to think that a National Champion can be crowned without any decent quarterback play! Imagine if LSU would have had a QB? Better yet… imagine if LSU would have faced No.4 Stanford! Andrew Luck might have made them look really bad! And, not by himself… Stanford had a balanced offense. They average almost 3,000 yards rushing with a pro passing offense (287 yard per game) with two fantastic receivers in Montgomery and Whalen.
Imagine what Oklahoma State might have done against this Alabama defense… who never really faced a true passing, high-powered offense. Brandon Weeten could have torn this defense apart! Justin Blackmon averaged 23+ yards per catch, and Colton Chelf over 19 yards per catch.
But, we never had the opportunity to see those games! These are the match-up I believe we were entitled to. I’m pieved! …something just isn’t right!
Alabama has no right to celebrate this win, nor claim the National Championship! This is a hollow victory against another conference team. It was not a good match for a National Championship!
But, this is just my opinion!
