Lucan - You may not like it but 'Bama is not going to win the National Championship every year and LSU will win another title at some point. The Tigers will be tough to beat next year,It's not bullshit.
I know Alabama can't win every year, i'm not on an Alabama band wagon. I have said in many post i don't think Alabama will repeat as National Champs next season. But LSU will not beat Alabama next season, i don't care if its in Baton Rouge, La unless Alabama has its best players on IR.
And people can't say that Tyrann Mathieu, will be a factor. Alabama went at him and exposed he was not that great. He was giving a title by his team mates only and he didn't live up to his expectations in the NCG...the most important game of his life.
Great players step up when needed...
He's just an over hype player that made two TD's while playing defense, that had no right being invited to the Heisman selection.
Now you and i know theres alot of defensive players across the country that done alot better the that. Mathieu was a media driven player. It's laughable thinking he so good.
I also don't care what players will be leaving Alabama on defense or offense.
The Alabama players stepping up/in have plenty of playing time and talent as they played most 3rd qts and all 4th qts last season, and A.J. McCarron will be better next season and as we know he took Alabama to the NCG his 1st year as a starter and won, now we can say it was because of the Alabama defense, or Trent Richardson that won the NCG.
In the NCG Trent Richardson watched his backup Lacy play as much as him if not more from the sidelines and as far as the defense they were good but Saban and Smart thats their memo every year with a defense.
I don't think LSU will be that hard to beat next year, now thats just my opinion, so lets not take this and blow it out of the water after all i'm no Lee Corso but then again he picked LSU to beat Alabama in the NCG.
I'm not always right, and i will eat crow when due. I'm not getting into the hype of LSU next season and you should not either.
Maybe USC yes.
As far as Steele putting Michigan in the top 10 is stupid Alabama plays them the 1st game of the year, he should put Clemson there instead.
The media is going to try and put Michigan back into the spot light, and they are desevering of it sooner or later. But so is ND, Texas, and some other teams. Hell i miss the days Michigan was a top contender, but i also miss Nebraska there two.
I think Steele has this pecking order wrong!!!
