Yep, the LSU Nation and Jarrett Lee all got royally screwed and tortured on the rack by the head football King of Louisiana State University. Thulsa Doom should have been sent back to the Castle in the second quarter.

That game ranks as the biggest "mystery" in LSU football history IMO.

However, all the Royal subjects might just forgive King Lester if the Prince Cameron hire works out like we all hope.

re: Top 5 screw jobs in LSU history


My #1 screw job memory is from LSU's 0-3 loss to #2 ranked, unbeaten Notre Dame in 1970. IMO, we had the game won, or at worst, a tie. Mac called a characteristically brilliant defensive game. But then came that really, really questionable "pass interference" call against LSU that put ND in position to make the winning FG. As hhstigerdad wrote in a thread on this topic back in 2010...

The game film clearly shows that our DB made no contact with the ND receiver.
South Bend home cooking cost LSU that game, I'm sure.

Try to imagine that. 2 teams that didn't win their conference playing for the national title, while the SEC Champ UGA goes to the Capital One bowl because of the retarded "no more than 2 teams from one conference" rule.

actually that's the one scenario where one conference could get three teams in BCS bowls, they talked about it quite a bit prior to the game

I knew about this game, but was too young to know what happened. I always heard it was a bad call on Casanova. LSU got some nice revenge the next year.

You are accepting the fact that BAMA was the much better team that night.



No, I'm not.


We already played them and beat them. They never should've been there.

Ala. got an unfair advantage to get into the game.
LSU did not get screwed.
It screwed itself with an inexplicable, failing game plan to which no adjustments were made.

There ya go. If LSU beat Bama in that game Nobody would have said they were screwed. Sounds like a bunch of whining to me.

I was in grade school but remember this well. There was not an LSU player within 5 yards of the ND receiver and the flag came out after the play was over.

Really a bad deal...

re: Top 5 screw jobs in LSU history


According to my avid LSU Fan father, LSU was 'hosed' a number of times by the referees during the 1970s against Bear Bryant coached Bama teams with a single suspect referee call making the difference.

When we beat them in 2004, with that non Pass Interference call in the end zone my dad screamed 'just desserts. Now we need about 5 more of these to even things up.'

Also, if I'm not mistaken, wasn't Texas running the wishbone at that time?

Yes they were. I am not so sure that LSU doesn't get creamed by Texas.





I am sure. They would NOT have. LSU set an NCAA record in 1969 for least rushing yards allowed per game: 39.6 yds/game. It would have been tough, but I think we could have beaten them.

Arkansas had them 14-0 and lost 15-14 (the same Arkansas that lost 27-22 in the Sugar the following month).

1908 undefeated, and no NC! (at least not on any legit polls, but Bama would still claim it) So what if some of our players had "eligibility issues".

But how many teams that LSU played used the wishbone/??? LOOK I think the '69 team is a top 5 LSU team EVER. But Texas and that wishbone would have given them fits.

It's both.

We play Bama every season. We beat them, it should've been over and done. That's why we have the regular season.

It's a screw job for us because we had to play an extra game while a team we had already beaten, on the road got to sit for over a month to get prepared and gets awarded a do over? That's garbage. But I'm not turning this into a 1/9 thread. Just answering the OP's question.

It screwed OSU because they were the next best team. Gundy didn't handle that right, IMO.

Enough said.

3. Auburn 2006 - This was a bagman game from beginning to end. Pick any of several plays. This game flat out sucked.


Worst called game I have ever seen followed closely by

5. Alabama 2009 - Peterson interception was the ultimate, but there were many other plays. JJ's 1st down that wasn't. JJ gets speared by a player launching himself...no call. 4th and 6 and LSU jumps...5 yard penality, but Bama gets a 1st down.

I agree with what he's agreeing with; those two games were a parade of bad calls against us.

re: Top 5 screw jobs in LSU history


I have to say I agree wholeheartedly that Bama did not deserve to be in the 2011 BCS championship.
If you're honest with yourself though you realize that only Oklahoma State ( and maybe college football) got hosed in that situation.
LSU could have still won the game regardless of how fair or not it was that Bama was in it.( I think Les and company had enough time to game plan and rest. They were just beaten that night).

My number 1 then would have to be Auburn 2006 for all the reasons already mentioned. LSU's game calling could have been better,but this was an incredibly hard fought game on both sides.
In games like this one play or call can make the difference much less several highly questionable ones that seemed to all go against one team.
This one really made me question the ethics of the SEC.

Yep. and it very well could have cost LSU another possible shot at a NC. It definately cost LSU a shot at a SEC title.
