Obviously LSU needs to win these next two, but what would be wonderful is to see ND actually help BK/LSU out by beating USC and getting them off our back and out of the conversation.

Sometimes it's about WHEN they lose. Not to mention losing their starting QB, they are on a downward trajectory

The fact that Bama still has a mathematical chance, however small, of getting into the CFP is ridiculous.

Why? LSU is 5th and has the worst loss of anyone in the Top 10. Bama has lost to two very good teams.

Bama’s chance at the playoff is not small, sorry to say. Just look at who’s in front—of the top 5, four play each other.

The main problem BAMA has is they don’t play at all next weekend, the committee likes to jump teams who didn’t play with conf champs

The fact that LSU football has rebounded to this point this quickly is encouraging. We are top five and have not reachec our ceiling. They said O would not be the third consecutive coach to win a natty here and now indications are that we may have a fourth consecutive coach to win one.

10-2 Bama doesn't jump 11-1 Michigan or 11-1 TCU. LSU, at 11-2 would jump those teams because they will have won the SEC title and would be the hottest team in college football.
