I watched the LSU/Alabama game and thought that Alabama was the more TALENTED team but the scoreboard showed at the end who was the BETTER team that day.

Championship teams aren’t always about talent-it’s more about finding a way to win crucial games.

Last year I thought Alabama “outplayed” Auburn, but Auburn found a way to win an important game and went on to win the BCS championship game.  Did Auburn go into that game and think ,like Alabama obviously did this year, “We don’t really need to win this game because we're the best team and we’ll get another shot?!?”

Overall talent doesn’t always win championships. Were the Longhorns really the most talented team in 2005 or was it Vince Young who beat USC? Was Auburn really better than Oregon and Alabama or was it Cam Newton that just got it done? Either way those teams had tests during their seasons and they came away with wins.

Good or bad the way the “system” is set up you don’t usually get a 2nd chance…ask Boise, OK St, Stanford…and even Houston…..Unless you happen to be  a handpicked National champion…look at how most of the quoted experts rated Alabama at the beginning of the season.

My problem isn’t with the talent of Alabama; it’s with their lack of character..They didn’t win when they needed it and just assumed that they would have the unprecedented privilege of a 2nd chance. That to me is not championship material.  I could argue that OK St won when it needed to and has much more of a championship team character.

I would be OK with a rematch if it happened as a result of a real playoff system but not when it's decided by a popularity poll.

Bottom line the BEST team (National Champions) find ways to win and they don’t make excuses for a big loss. I think LSU will find a way to win this game. Alabama(and a lot of commentators) will still say at the end of the game that they are the best team in college football.

Trent Richardson = The most PHYSICAL RB in the NATION! 

Dont'a Hightower/Courtney Upshaw = The two MOST PHYSICAL LB's on the field when those two teams match up. 

Mark Barron, Dre Kirkpatrick = Physical in the secondary, hence them being two of the top NFL draft prospects at their positions.

Physical, defined...

2 minutes is out of the question........... 2 seconds is a better comparison.

Fried will lighten up as soon as Tappy admits that LSU is.......

"Physically Superior To Alabama"........... and with Sophmores.

As soon as I hear that, will back off a lil.

In meantime.......... think Tappy needs an intro to JC Copeland.........

Cope was in the November game but didn't have Hilliard rocking it.

I hope it's Alabama, but I'm afraid it will be Lou State U.

Bama moved backward too much in the 1st game, and shied from the win.

LSU wants it more. Like rippin a ball from a receiver's hands should tell you that.

How the darn is this thread still alive and bumped? This board is that dead, which means the off season is in full swing and depressing.

I bumped it for the new FriedShrimp of Covers.  Not to mention it is entertaining to revisit some old FriedShrimp stupidity in the offseason.
