Remember when CLM was humorously noted as having a pact w the Devil b/c of all the incredibly "good" things happening to the LSU football program:
It's silly to think there isn't an enormous amount of luck involved to win a national championship.
LSU was unlucky in 2011. Tragic plane crash involving OK state before a loss to Iowa State that allowed bama to play "the mulligan" - even though they still shouldn't have.
Even so a better record, won the SEC, and a much more impressive body of work than bama.
And 2012. holy crap. The sh!tstorm!!!
All the injuries.
On the opposite side.
Bama needed an extremely improbably 80 yard drive on a team who hadn't allowed hardly anything the second half.
A boneheaded "non-timeout" by Richt to seal the SEC championship.
Oregon and Kansas state losing to far inferior competitors in the last weeks to leapfrog.
and Not to mention Terrelle Pryor selling his pants on ebay so that it wasn't Ohio State vs. ND in the championship game.
in the aspects of talent, recruiting, and (especially with the addition of Cameron) coaching the difference has been null.
Just time for a little more of that Tiger magic.
