I don't care what anyone says, for the #1 team in the nation who win or lose gets to go to a national championship...LSU's offense sucks.

BuckeyeChief's picture

It is only because they are playing another SEC team, and the level of competition is SO HIGH that it's difficult to score. If they were playing any other conference and 2/3rds of the NFL then they would have already scored 200 point because it would take an NFL All-Pro team to beat them.

But seriously, if UGA pulls this off, then Boise is going to be real bitter, and justifiably so.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Colin's picture

Boise still lost a game though, with their schedule I would assume that knocks them out no matter what. Their complaining was only justified by always being undefeated. If LSU loses I won't mind Alabama going to the title game just because they are in position too, but a rematch would be absolute BS.

Menexenus's picture

If Georgia pulls this off, some people (like me) are going to be VERY suspicious about whether the money that all the SEC teams stand to gain for getting 3 teams into the BCS through a loophole might have affected play on the field.

Count me in.....

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

UGA can't catch the ball on O or D.

Despite Georgia's drops, very impressed with them so far.

The Vest-er's picture

10-0. Uga ain't buying the hype

Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless.

larzdapunk's picture

It appeared that Georgia has a midget male cheerleader.  Of course, could be the homebrew goggles. 

BrewstersMillions's picture

Boy, Mark Richt is pouring a big ol pitcher of ice water on his hot seat huh?

4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off

BuckeyeChief's picture

Yep.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChris's picture

So, help me out, here. If UGA wins, isn't LSU still in the BCS Championship? Or should I serioulsy be rooting for UGA...with passion? Don't want to waste passion....ya know. 

William's picture

Root for UGA to screw over the BCS by beating LSU. 

BuckeyeChris's picture

Will do. Go Dawgs! 

Is there any way at all LSU loses today and still gets in? 

BuckeyeChief's picture

That's what i'm saying; if they win, how can LSU make it in over Boise? (I know because Boise lost to TCU), but it throws a massive monkey wrench in.

Bama also loses points in the computers because the team that beat them is no longer undefeated.

I want LSU to lose by 50, but I'm betting the Hatter is just toying with everyone's emotions and will come out the 2nd half swingin'.

poop's picture

Absolutely. LSU always has that mental toughness regardless of the score.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Man UGA is crushing them thus far.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

How was that not a flag?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

William's picture

That was not only a block in the back, it also should have been a personal foul for launching. The BCS called these refs and told them LSU couldn't lose.

BuckeyeChief's picture

On the replay, there was also another.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I just sd the same thing. There were at least 3 illegal blocks on that return....

Fixed

BuckeyeChief's picture

Watch the replay, dude is going to launch himself for a bloack in the back...dude is still down.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

poop's picture

From Fark: LSU should play while swinging bicycle chains at Georgia. They wouldn't get flagged.

onetwentyeight's picture

See if LSU loses a close one today I can still see them getting in because of their brutal schedule. But Bama? Who have they beat that's any good? People knock Boise's schedule but as of this year Boise's SoS is actually better than Bama's (IMO, and some ranking sites). 

At least Boise kknocked UGA around. What's Bama's signature win? Not-Losing to LSU in regulation? The best team Bama's beat is Penn St. , and ... yeah. 

William's picture

If LSU loses they don't belong either, you should have to win your conference to make the title game..

BuckeyeChief's picture

Man, these guys have it out for UGA.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

Speaking of cheap shots, anyone watch Ohio U last night? Jeez they had some really dirty shots last night. One player got ejected...

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

KenK's picture

So, one of the LSU offensive coaches is under consideration to be hired at OSU? It's almost half time as I type this, and NO 1st downs for LSU? I really can't say I'm impressed.

Johnny Hooker: "He's not as tough as he thinks". Henry Gondorff: "Neither are we".

Colin's picture

Jordan Jefferson is bad, that is why you are unimpressed.

Colin's picture

So the guy tossed the ball to the ref before he crossed the goal line on that punt return...man they want LSU in that championship game bad.

BuckeyeChief's picture

2 blocks in the back, including one that would've been a huge fine in the NFL, and he flipped it before he crossed, but nothing called.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

NW Buckeye's picture

Goes to show how shitty the refs are in the SEC.  Imagine playing them as a non con in their stadiums.  The calls would be even worse. 

BuckeyeChief's picture

Anyone else think "Ivon Padilla Rodriguez" had a better technique than Bauserbomb?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

ThirdLegLouie's picture

Much better football motion.. Bauserman could never stop throwing his curve ball

If you ain't a Silver Bullet, you're a target

 
BuckeyeChief's picture

Really happy she won. Not that I know the other girls situation, or that I had a routing interest, sure she would've been just as emotional, but that was nice to see.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

Who is pulling for a Sparty win, and BB to look like this?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Bucksfan's picture

I want Sparty to win simply because Wisconsin not only embarrasses the conference by losing the Rose Bowl last year to TCU, but will embarrass us tonight as they didn't sell out their allotment of tickets.  You can get tickets to the game for 14 dollars on StubHub.  I'm outraged that Lucas Oil will have empty seats.  WTF, Wisconsin fans?!?!

Gobucks22250's picture

I agree i cant wait till next year we would never have trouble filling those seats

poop's picture

LSU roid raging now.

Orlando Buckeye's picture

LSU's D-Line is some scary shit.  I'm not even talking about the way they play football.

William's picture

That's what steroids can do.

Gobucks22250's picture

Speaking of next year it seems like mike stoops is waitng to see what happens with oklahoma and or nebraska. If we cant land him i think maybe we should give pepper johnson a call. He is a former buckeye an all pro who spent his entire 13 year playing career under belicheck. Hes been a coach on thr patriot staff since 2001 been d-line coach since 2004 and has 5 superbowl rings. So you would think he knows a thing or 2 about D. With vrabel possibly being retained it would help with someone else on the staff who knos the system. Something simillar to what alabma runs. Hankins would make a good nose guard and with washington/spence/williams/steve miller we would have the personel to run it. What do you think?

Will we be able to stream the B1G Champ on Foxsports?

BTW Texas just got blasted by Baylor (!!!!) 48-24. All of a sudden those crazy Mack Brown retiring (and Nick Satan hiring??) rumors ... seem a tad more plausible :

A buddy of mine got it from a friend of his who is a alum and booster...this guy is always right.

Haven't been on here in a while because I am in LA and lost power due to the wind storm of the century. Anyway, did anyone notice the LSU defensive lineman doing that damned cereal eating thing that 'Nard did during the OSU game? Did 'Nard start an annoying trend? What the hell is the point of it and what does it mean? That is the most lame football taunt I have ever seen.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I saw it, but 'Nard didn't start it. I've seen it a few times. It looks much funnier coming from a bug dude.

LABuckeye's picture

Good to know, but I still don't like it. I would be pissed if an OSU guy did it... I think it looks ridiculous.

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Danielson's explanation as to why a LSU-Alabama rematch would be justified compared with the OSU-Michigan rematch that was considered and rejected in '06 ignores the obvious difference between the two: Michigan lost a road game, while Bama lost at home.

I hope they get their damn rematch, and that a Big Bang Theory rerun tops it in the ratings. I already sat through over four snoozeworthy quarters of LSU-Alabama this season. We've suffered enough.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

I like this idiots playoff plan that ignores conference champions for the top at-large teams as selected by committee.
