There is a very good chance that Alabama fans will be faced with the question of who to root for in a potential National Championship between LSU and Clemson on January 13.

According to ESPN's Paul Finebaum, Alabama fans will likely rather see LSU win over Clemson winning their third National Championship in four years. Per SaturdayDownSouth:
quote:

“That may be the most painful question of them all,” Finebaum said. “I frankly think they’d almost rather see LSU win than Clemson. Because by Clemson winning, Lance, it suddenly means that Clemson has outperformed Alabama lately. … I still think Alabama fans, based on what I hear, they’re not as concerned about LSU as they are Clemson. They feel like they may have been a one-off … ”

“I think they can live with LSU winning,” Finebaum said. “I frankly believe that Alabama fans would rather see LSU win, as crazy as that sounds, than Auburn or Georgia. Georgia is the team that I think they’ve really been concerned about because Kirby has been such a nemesis in terms of recruiting and now I think they’re exhaling even on that one.”

Bama fans viewed LSU as a “one-off” from 2000 to 2007, when we dominated them back to back and won two national championships. One of those championships with their current coach (who they thought of as a joke at the time).

From 2000-2007 we beat them 7 out of eight. Our best run was 5 in a row.

Bama does not care, they only care if they in the Natty. They only play like a team when they in the Natty. Clemson is not the fan favorite across the country tho. I'd imagine everyone wants to see LSU vs Ohio State match up. I just hope LSU can change Malcom Greene mind in signing with Lsu over Clemson. An Lsu commit but seems to be trending toward Clemson as of late.

Nobody cares! Finescum has to keep Bama relevant to pander to his fans. Also, it has nothing to do with Clemson and everything to do with the conference raking in more money. If LSU wins, Bama gets more money.

I don't give a crap if Bama pulls for or against us. Just so they are at home watching the SEC Champions play ball. Geaux Tigers!!!

Bama should absolutely be rooting for LSU to win it all just as any SEC team should be rooting for any other SEC team in the playoffs/championship. Reason why... a significant part of the equation for ranking and selectimg teams is based on human judgment (the committee). If a team plays in what is perceived to be the best conference (SEC) then that carries a lot of weight when they do their rankings. SEC teams wins it all = SEC continues to viewed as the toughest conference. Helps all SEC teams out for the next year.

I agree....frick Bama but you can't deny it benefits all SEC teams when SEC wins. If it where a true playoff then yeah it wouldn't matter.

Why would a coach leave a school and go to a school that is a step down from where he is ..... That would make no sense.

**BREAKING NEWS** This just in Finebaum......LSU Fans don't care who Bama cheers for

THE SEC WEST Where would college football be without it?

Here are the facts: It does not matter who they cheer for, because either way, they will be at home watching us play... It will not be about them, it will be about LSU... And like a good money shot, they are going to have to sit there and deal with a load of purple and gold all up in their eyes and ears... Put that in your pipe and smoke on it.

This is PF's way of belittling LSU's phenomenal season. He is trying to say that, no matter what, it is always all about Bama.
