Scout Ranks Greatests Seasons
LSU will always be one missed Oklahoma State field goal away from the greatest season in NCAA football history.
Yeah, and if the name on those jerseys lacked the word "State" and the colors were crimson and cream...that missed field goal wouldn't have mattered at all.
Remains the biggest travesty in BCS history. The one time that the media, and more accurately - a small faction of "Human Poll Voters and Coaches" decided for themselves who would be in the NCG - by voting Oklahoma State """" FIFTH OR SIXTH """"
Had they voted OSU 2nd or 3rd, like the other voters - Alabama would not have been in the NC game.
That, plus Saban influencing the voting by lobbying for bama at the SECCG (why was Gundy not allowed to lobby for OSU?) was digusting.
There was no precedent for a do-over. Michigan was not given a do-over vs Ohio State in Jan. of 2007.
All OSU had to do was beat former Oklahoma in the big 10 CG, which they did - by FOUR TOUCHDOWNS, and they would have been number 2 - ACCORDING TO THE POINT CALCULATION SYSTEM OF THE BCS.
But no, the 3rd place team in the SEC (behind LSU and Georgia), who lost at home, was given a do-over.
