I think people focus way to much on the "home field advantage" Ok, the home team gets a little more rest, and familiarity. I have played through the college level myself, and it never made that big of a difference to me, or most of the guys I knew. All football fields are made the same. IDK it has something to do with the regulations. At the college level there are enough big time fans that you have plenty of support in the crowd. If anything to me there was a small advantage to being the away team. I know every player, current or former, knows what I am saying, there is nothing like coming into their house and beating them in their own back yard. I don't think the away factor will hurt Bama too much. Bama generally has the more powerfull guys, but with the loss of so many guys can they put something together for LSU? IDK!! On the other hand, I think they had more talent than LSU without those guys. I would be inclined to go against the grain on this one, and give it to Bama. One of the two will play in the NC, although I don't see them winning, but they shouldn't play USC, there are better teams than USC, that should be in the NC.
