No conference title but a national title?

It seems to me everyone has already decided that LSU and ‘Bama are going to the Championship, — the season isn’t over until its over buddy!

Apparently, even if LSU loses to Georgia they still get to go to the national Championship game. Why is this fair?

My arguments against LSU if they lose to Georgia

1.Bowl games don’t like to invite teams that lost their last game of the season because of the feeling fans get after their team loses. Ya know the feeling – “I can’t believe they lost I am not going to another game ever again!” We have all felt it and it goes away after a week. But Bowl games sell most of their tickets that first week, they don’t like to invite teams that lost because of it, even if it would basically be a home game for the Tigers.

2. Since when are you the best team in the nation, if you can’t even win your conference? If LSU loses, then Georgia wins the SEC. I know at this point everyone has one loss but you still have to win your conference. In case you forgot, Georgia lost to Boise early this season, haven’t we decided Boise isn’t so super awesome? And if Georgia lost to them and then Georgia beats LSU, then maybe Boise (I doubt it) could beat LSU. But we will never know, because LSU can’t play anyone but ‘Bama and SEC teams.

Most likely, LSU will beat the Bulldogs and rightfully claim in their title game spot. So if they win, they win the SEC and are undefeated and truly deserve that spot. However, ‘Bama didn’t even win its division and gets to play in the title game. If you don’t win your conference, you don’t deserve that crystal football!!!

We have already seen ‘Bama vs. LSU  and it is time move on. LSU won, sorry ‘Bama, but you lost. A conference shouldn’t be able to fill the two team limit in the BCS in the same game (poor Arkansas.)  If you stick ‘Bama back in there against LSU, then you’ll never know if anyone else with a different playing style could beat them. It is just so predictable.

Let’s make a game of it and put the Cowboys in there. (Of course I am biased, but I mean I have a point.) It would be an all out shoot-out if the Cowboys were allowed to play. (I said “allow” because the Big Conference Series wouldn’t allow a little dog to play for the crystal football.) Our defense would struggle and LSU would put up points. But LSU, doesn’t know how to stop the passing yards racked up by the classic Weeden to Blackmon because they have never had to and we would put up points.

OSU has never had a chance like this and the big bad BCS does not want to give the spotlight to anyone in the Big 12 besides Texas and Oklahoma. It sucks to be number three and shut out of a chance we have earned. Come on voters, if we can beat Oklahoma, who lost to two teams we stomped, give us a shot! I don’t wanna go to Arizona! Luck wouldn’t have any luck against Weeden and the Hokies can’t handle the pressure!

But unfortunately, I think OSU is in luck for a Fiesta.


About Lindsey Adams

Sports have always been a passion of mine. When I was little it was playing them in kids leagues, until one day I finally realized I sucked. When I got older I went through a phase that I call fan-ization, defined as the process of becoming a well-informed sports fan. I became fan-inized by spending to many Saturday afternoons in the living room with my father. And He, as I see it, is a world renowned sports buff. He knows everything there is to know about all sports-history, rules, players, stats, coaches, and techniques. Obviously a little bit of his passion rubbed of on me and hopefully a little trivia. So incase you didn't know Saturdays in the fall are full of college football so inevitably the NCAA became my first love. I learned players, teams, rules, conferences, and started reading up on news. Now I am a self-proclaimed college football junkie. I have now extended my viewing and knowledge to all sports. Now, my days of spending all afternoon in the living room with my dad have passed because I have had to get up off that couch and go to college. (Theoretically to learn something I guess.) This year I am a sophomore at Oklahoma State University and recently official sports media major. I am originally from Amarillo, Texas and I was born in the Dallas area. So my heart lies with the Dallas cowboys, the Texas Rangers, the (dissolving) Big 12 and the NBA champions the Dallas mavericks, but my fan-ship truly lies with OSU Cowboys. I believe my sports knowledge is unique and being a girl it is odd, you will not find another girl as informed or as passionate about sports as I am.
