    Does Alabama Deserve a Rematch???

    This question was just asked to Herbstriet(sp) on ESPN. I for one say no. They had the game at home, they had their shot and lost. I would say any undefeated team should get a shot ahead of them -- even if it is Boise State. Just my thought and preference.

    Re: Does Alabama Deserve a Rematch???

    I am sick of the SEC being the end all/be all. The Big 12 is a much better conference this year and get's almost no respect for it.

    No! They don't get a shot. They lost the game. I would much rather have Boise play for it than seeing another SEC match up. Just asking the question pisses me off.

    Boise has no business in the top 10...I don't care how many crappy teams they beat.

    That said, Alabama absolutely deserves another shot. These are by far the best two teams in the country.

    Re: Does Alabama Deserve a Rematch???

    The only way they should get a rematch is
    1. Okie St loses a game.
    2. Stanford loses a game.
    3. Bama remains a 1 loss team.

    I would still put Bama in the title game over an undefeated BSU team and also a 1 loss OSU or Stanford team.
    I told myself before this game that the only way they deserve to have a rematch is if they keep the game close and its not a blowout. Well, losing by 3 points in OT meets those requirements. Now, all they need is for OSU and Stanford to lose.

    Another thing to think about is how tough a road LSU still has remain undefeated. They still play Arkansas and will probably play Georgia in the SEC championship.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    If there would ever be a rematch, Bama would just buy a good kicker.

    Depends on how things shake out. Bama still has a tough road game @Auburn to play.

    Please no. The SEC love fest is already high enough. We don't need to feed the monster any more.

    Re: Does Alabama Deserve a Rematch???

    No. I hate the idea of two conference opponents meeting in the title game. I get that the SEC is the "greatest conference" in college football but that would be stupid. Remember when this was brought up with Ohio State and Michigan having rematch in the title game even though Ohio State beat Michigan in the regular season. Then Ohio State was blasted by Florida.

    Re: Does Alabama Deserve a Rematch???

    Absolutely they deserve a rematch. No doubt in my mind that these are the two best teams in the nation. LSU's line on both sides of the ball would manhandle OSU's. A closer game between the two best teams in the nation would be the rematch.

    Re: Does Alabama Deserve a Rematch???

    Five years ago, Ohio State and Michigan were "clearly" the two best teams in the country and played a great game. There was debate about whether they should get a rematch. Ohio State ended up losing their bowl game against Florida 41-14 and Michigan lost to USC 32-18.

    The lesson we all should have learned from that is that we can't just assume two teams from the same conference are better than everybody else. Alabama lost, at home no less. They deserve to fall behind the other contenders. It would be a travesty if a one-loss Alabama got in over undefeated Okie State or Stanford. At that point we can pretty much say the games don't matter.

    Jesus, that was great defense by Alabama, but those idiots missed 4 field goals. 2 pretty long ones, but the first miss was 44 yards and even our missed up kicking game made a 42 one to win it.
