Justice has been served……I guess.
The relentless defense of the Crimson Tide defeated LSU 21-0 in the Bowl Championship Series Game (in Baton Rouge no less……HA, great job Les Miles). I guess you could say it was a good game, somewhat more entertaining than the last time they met. But then again, these two teams have already met with LSU defeating the Tide 9-6 on November 5 (gotta give a shout out to the kickers for that one). Hey must have been a hell of a game, it made Nick Saban crack a smile= WoW.
It was nice to see the Tide step it up and shut down the Tigers and better yet, the Honey Badger. Seriously, the Honey Badger didn’t take what he wanted last night. I was disappointed. Lo siento Mathieu, but I don’t think that nickname will stay with you once you enter the NFL. There will be far more Honey Badgers, Mastodons, Saber Toothed Tigers, and all the other ultimate badasses of the jungle in the NFL.
Did you know that the trophy Bama will now be displaying in their athletic offices, the crystal football, is worth $30,000. ShooOOOOoot. Thank the LORD the Buckeyes weren’t competing for the National Championship because if they had won, the players would have pawned that trophy fasho in exchange for some black light mood color changer tattoos that can do your laundry and wash your car. And maybe a lifetime supply of easy mac for those hungry hard-working football players. Seriously, $30,000??
The only criticism I have about the game is the BCS’s choice for the Offensive Player of the Game Award ( aka MVP), AJ McCarron, Bama’s quarterback. In hindsight, he deserved but he didn’t score a touchdown until the fourth quarter (4 minutes and 36 seconds left in the game to be exact). That touchdown was the first touchdown Alabama has scored against LSU all year. Yikes. But the real player putting up the points for the Tide was their kicker Jeremy Shelly, who kicked 5 field goals before the touchdown ever took place. 15 points were put on the board because of Shelly, not the quarterback. To be fair, the quarterback assisted the kicker to reach field goal position. But remember last time, if the kicker doesn’t make the field goals, then there are no points and no point mean no win 😦 Never in a million years would any bowl game association, let alone the BCS, give the Offensive Player of the Game Award to a kicker. Sad. Too Bad, Shelly, maybe you would have gotten some more action on sorority row next semester……well,for a kicker.
So what does this say about the SEC conference? Can we all say, OVERRATED. Seriously. The SEC conference isn’t the best conference in the land of college football. They aren’t so mighty. They aren’t so tough. I think SEC fans can safely say that they have watched more compelling things, like watching how ice is made, than last night’s game. So will this game shut everybody up now? Will this now stop the over-hyped drooling and noise from the SEC? Probably not, but at least we can shove it back in their faces if they get out of line.
So will there be a tie you ask?? Knowing Les Miles, he would. He has done it in the past with USC even when they didn’t compete in the National Championship, so what would stop him now when his team has actually played in the National Championship game and has already beat the Bama Champs back in November. He should be ashamed of himself. His team only passed the 50 yard line once, only had 5 first down conversions, 92 totaled yards….so clearly they just suck at life……and WE LOVE IT.
So this is college football’s grand conclusion for the 2011 season. Yawn. You have to be either sad or mad,mad or sad, or both = a raging biatch. Hopefully the BCS is swallowing a hard dose of their own medicine. Stop sucking up to the SEC (they suck and now the whole country knows) and really review your punishments before handing them out. Maybe if you actually did that, your championship game would have scored a touchdown in the first quarter…..but what do I know? Nobody wants to see touchdowns, they are boring and put up only 6 points, 3 points is way more exciting.
How about USC-LSU showdown? Now that would be amazeballs. If Les had any say, that would never happen. He knows his Tigers amazingly inept team has no chance against SC and the glorious return of Matty Barkely. That would shut up the SEC now and (hopefully ) forever.
Here is to the new 2012 season. May it be free of mishap, controversy, and the SEC.
