In terms of the fanbase's hatred, is Bama on the level of USC circa 2003?
2 missed FGs is all that is separating LSU from being probable NCs the last 2 years:
1. Okie State miss vs Iowa State in 2011.
2. Alleman miss vs bama last November.
this is so stupid yet you keep saying it....ridiculous selective evaluation
Your opinion. The key word I wrote is is """""probable.""""""
1. If Oklahoma State makes that FG vis ISU, they are in all probability 12-0. There is NO WAY 11-1 Bama with no SEC title goes to the NCG ahead of unbeaten and Big 12 Champ Okie State in 2011.
Now would we have beaten Okie State? Who knows?
2. If Alleman's 45 yard FG hooks in vs Bama on 11/3, we lead 20-14 and WE have the momentum, not Bama. Plus, more time runs off, we kickoff, more time runs off, Bama may have started inside their 20. They had no timeouts.
Now would we have beaten Georgia in the '12 SECCG ?? Who knows?
All I was trying to illustrate is how truly close LSU is to accomplishing what Bama did the last two years. That's all.
That's why I 'keep saying that.' Because it's true.
