I hate LSU with a passion but their fans shite on Seahawks fans. If Tiger Stadium was designed like Qwest Field and LSU fans were allowed to bring in noise amplifiers like Seahawks fans do, Death Valley would be completely unplayable. LSU would never lose a game there. ...

I'll make another point. The caliber of coaches in CFB has dropped dramatically. In the mid '90s, CFB was loaded with great coaches like Tom Osborne, Steve Spurrier, Bobby Bowden, Lou Holtz, Joe Paterno and many more. There are two coaches of that caliber right now: Nick Saban and Urban Meyer. Chip ...

I'm pulling for FSU because they're the superior team. I might be the only SEC fan on this board who really liked watching Pete Carroll's USC teams play. I also didn't mind Urban Meyer's Florida teams either. I love watching great teams play. CFB would be in a better place if teams of that caliber w...

It should be 2012 without question.
A) It was on the road.
B) 2012 was by far the best team out of the bunch.
C) They beat a 100% healthy Johnny Football. He was definitely not 100% in the 2013 game.
