LSU or 'Bama? (3rd option for those cave dwellers who have no idea what this thread is about).

Either way, if it is anything like their last game it won't be worth watching live. That was about as exciting as watching trees grow.

I'll prolly just grab it on the DVR & fast forward to the scoring drives.

Oklahoma St should be playing in this game. And so far it is boring. These two teams can barely complete a forward pass.

It's a battle of the D and the Tide is VERY tough in that Dept

Yes the tide has great D and so does LSU. I still think that there are teams that could score on them. OSU, Oregon, USC (although ineligible) would have put some point on the board.

That game was a bore fest.

Shut up with the Honey Badger crap already. I usually like Musberger, but that was just terrible.

Looks like OK should have been there instead of LSU. An undefeated team completely shut-out in a bowl game (and BCS title game at that). Alabama's defense just crushed them.

After halftime you could really tell that the announcers were fighting it. They were really trying to come up with anything to keep the fans interested.

Totally agree. Bama did play great on D. Heck LSU played great on D considering that they got nothing in the way of help from their offense.

With four weeks off between their last game and the bowl game, I'm not surprised this ended up the way it did. They need to wrap up the bowl games closer to the last game of the regular schedule.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

^ This x100

The bowl games need to be the week after the season ends, but too much $$$ generated with the format they have now. The momentum is just all lost and the hype is overdone.
