Do you really think Alabama played their A game?
Sure LSU helped Alabama looked bad, but Alabama made mistakes too like the two unforced fumbles and all the missed tackles and mental mistakes that the defense made. LSU brought their A game, and still for whatever reason lost to Alabama's B- game.
I saw Bama player quotes talking about how this game was circled before the year started. They brought the best they could bring. Tiger Stadium tends to have a weird effect on people and their decision making.
You don't think LSU had mental mistakes? We had seven penalties to their ONE. We had a 15-yard late hit penalty after a huge run that killed a drive for us. We had a false start coming out of a five-minute timeout.
We attempted a 54-yard field goal...we faked another one on 4th and 12 to throw it to the kicker. We missed another FG. We went on 4th and 1 with our RB at QB and got stuffed. We had mental coaching and playing errors. Don't forget about the missed tackles on Bama's last offensive play - the TD. And LSU dropped a number of balls in the first half before seriously picking it up in the 2nd half.
Sure LSU looked great in the second half but don't act like you didn't get Alabama help.
LSU didn't help Alabama?
