Agreed. I really don't understand why some sort of formula isn't used.
A win over a winning program = .5 point
A win over a winning program in a BCS conference = 1 point
A win over a BCS program with 3 or less losses = 2 poi...

I disagree. One of the biggest sells of LSU and Bama is the fact that they are in the SEC. Last I checked Texas is not. It'll be tough, sure. But I'll take Saban at Texas over Saban at Bama any day....

Bama was off. Coaching, execution, penalties, were all worse than usual.
Home field helped.
They didn't make many "momentum swinging" mistakes.
They stuck with their game plan and it kept them in the game.
A little bit of luck on top of all of that got them the W..
ON a side note. Did anyone el...

I hadn't thought about that, but with the new and ridiculous reprocussions for "targeting", I wouldn't doubt it.

The defense was frustrating.. especially in the Georgia game.
3rd in the SEC west, having beaten the number 2 team isn't bad for replacing the entire defense.
So, good year overall. Finish st...
