This is true, but it still doesn't change the fact that we have to beat Alabama if we are to be the best.
It's basically comedown to a one game season.
It sucks, just the way it is.
true, unless you're 2011. then you have to beat them twice.
i wonder how different things would be if Bama doesn't get a mulligan and LSU wins the title. then LSU and bama would both have 2 since 07.
in fact, i'm going to go back and say i don't think it's a one game season at all. LSU has to beat bama. but after that (not literally after just looking at schedule as a whole) they still play UF and UGA. Two chances to lose that bama doesn't have. beating bama might be useless if we win that and lose to UGA on the road (very possible) and UF at home (possible).
