    SEC lovefest

    Anyone else sick of listening to all these announcers selling the Ala-LSU rematch? Rick Reilly had a great column Thursday selling OSU as just as deserving as Ala. ALA has already lost to LSU, give someone else a chance. I am sure this is one of fifty threads about this but watching the LSU-GA game I am about to puke listening to these guys tell me why we should see a rematch.

    Yeah, CBS is always way, way over the top with their SEC love... gotta justify that SEC contract.

    If it happens this guy will not be watching. Yes, I'm sick of talking heads trying to tell me we need to see a game that was already played this year.

    Yep. The whole point of the BCS was to tell us who #1 is with the highest degree of accuracy.

    LSU playing alabama either tells us nothing we dont already know, that LSU is better than Alabama, or it confuses things, as they both are essentially tied on the year.
    LSU playing OSU (assuming they beat OU) settles whether they'd beat the best team from the best conference. (or second best according to the voters. the computers say b12 is better last i saw)

    I had to turn the post game off after listening for about 2 minutes. They were literally talking about the Alabama/LSU rematch as if it had already been announced, and throwing it in the face of other teams saying they didn't take care of business.

    Guess what? I'm not watching an LSU/Alabama rematch. That's not just me being irritated. It's because I was bored out of my freaking mind watching the first one. Nothing like two teams going three and out and playing field position the entire game, trying not to lose.

    That part particularly irritates me. Its not like theyre both undefeated. Alabama had their chance and they lost to LSU. Nobody other than LSU took care of business completely this year, and OSU has a better body of work than Alabama.

    And i'm with you, i have no desire to watch that rematch game.

    There has to be very little national interest, personally I'm hoping for the TV ratings to be terrible so they won't let this ever happen again.

    Basically if LSU and Bama play again, and LSU wins a second time... People will always wonder if any other team would have beat them

    If OSU beats OU and does not get in the championship game it would be an outrage. Alabama had their chance to beat LSU, OSU has not.
