I don't understand. We have only 3 NCs in over 50 years, and fans expect one every 2 years now?
I think its ridiculous and embarrassing that people want to fire our coach with 10 win seasons. I haven't checked, do Texas fans want Mack brown gone? Lots of great coaches don't win the championship every year, but keep the team competitive. I mean shit, we start in the top 10 year in and year out.
The OP's post hits the nail squarely on the head. There are 124 FBS teams and maybe 30 that have a legitimate chance to win the BCS Championship any given year.
LSU will be ranked in the top ten this year, and with some help may go to a BCS game. The rest of the country is getting tired of the SEC so I wouldn't count on it.
Want to complain about LSU? Watch games from the 90's playing the Gators, or Bear kicking our arse almost every year in the 70's, hell even Ole Piss gave us a good game back in their day and helped create a legend in Billy Cannon's epic run.
Is LSU going to win the BCS Championship every year? Of course not, but I admire the effort, time, blood sweat and tears our players and coaches expend working to be the best they can.
LSU goes 10-2 in the toughest league in the country and apparently that isn't good enough for TD's many anonymous coaching experts.
I suppose that's part of the appeal of anonymity, criticizing every mistake big or small.
On the other hand, there are many who post intelligently, without degrading the coaches and players. I've learned some things about the complexity of the game from them.
LSU is in it's Golden Age of football, and win or lose I'm going to enjoy while it lasts.
