I disagree. I'm going to have to side with the Aggies versus LSU. In 2012, Manziel wasn't a fully developed quarterback. I don't believe the game would have played out the sam...

LSU didn't shut down Ole Miss in 2010, 2012, and 2013, but I suppose "rivalry" games are excluded from your argument even though said rival hasn't been an SEC power in half a century....

Read CockRocket's response to your post. There you go. I don't know why people are acting like this an old topic.

I have a few ideas of my own, too, on some topics that haven't gotten nearly enough conversation:
1. Saban to Texas
2. Alabama's easy SEC schedule
3. Mark Richt losing control of his program.
4. Johnny Manziel's personal life.
My best idea is one that has not been...
