Incidentally, neither grew up to be head basketball coach at LSU......

The national championship in football should not be to reward the "best team". If that were the case, we should have had a chance to play for it in 2001, 2006, etc.
It's to reward the team with the BEST SEASON. That's why Alabama, even though they were the better team, should not have been in t...

The ball was passed just before Czcz took him out, so if it was a card it should have been yellow.
My beef with that call is that you gave them 2 chances at goal on the play. The referee waited until after the first shot to blow the whistle and award t...

If another pair of schools were determined to play every year, such as Missouri and Arkansas, then the others would play each other 9 times every 24 years, and play the rivalry schools 6 times in that 24 years.
| Tiger Rant|| Permanent Opponents - Simple Solution - Tiger Phil on 12/26/12 at 4:31 pm|
The SEC should come to a compromise solution. Basically, the schools that want permanent opponents can keep them, while the schools that do not want permanent opponents can not have them.
If we assume that Alabama/Tennessee and Auburn/Georgia are the ones that want to to keep, then we could sche...

Great examples. If Dennis Erickson were "tactically elite", why did he get fired from Arizona State?
And can anyone seriously argue that Osborne was "tactically elite"? His offense was as conservative as they come.

Alabama also benefitted greatly these last few years from their permanent bitter rival being in disarray. There is no denying that.
Every game between LSU and Alabama (save one) in recent memory have come down to one or two plays per game. The two programs are even in ability. We have just wou...

It's not about being tactically elite.
Alabama benefitted from schedule and a unique set of circumstances to have a chance never afforded to another before last year.
Florida had a transcendant quarterback.
Neither had to do with coaching acumen.

Here's the thing. There are more than just two results to a season - championship or misery.
