08:24 AM ET 01.10 | Though Alabama came closest, the total touchdowns in the national championship game offered a total of zero touchdowns. "I will say this," Mike Gundy said as Alabama closed in on Monday night's 21-0 win against LSU. "I bet you there'll be a lot of people wish they'd given us a shot to see a different kind of game." Oklahoma State's coach spoke by phone from a hotel room in San Antonio, more than 500 miles away. He took the game in on television, his frustration welling. ... "We'd have thrown it 50 times," he said. "You like to think Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon could have put together some touchdowns. Get the ball thrown down the field and open some things up. Try to make it exciting, and see what happens."

Zero touchdowns? The USA Today article states, correctly, that there was a single touchdown.

It's obvious that FN's editors (1) don't watch the games and (2) don't comprehend the articles they're plagiarizing.

Saw some holes in the Bama and LSU secondary last night on the replays. Would like to have seen what a true passer could have done. Oh well, we didn't get to.

Credit Bama. They weren't stubborn enough to try to "out physical" LSU again and adjusted by opening up on offense.

I can see his frustration and I think they would have moved the ball better but I don't think anyone, outside of the Packers and Saints, could have beaten Bama last night.

I am sure that OSU would have tried to throw it 50 times but with Bama's pass rush they probably would have been picked off 2 or 3 times.

Unfortunately for OSU the only true NFL talent they have is Justin Blackmon. Bama has 3 or 4 starters that are destined for the NFL and most of them are on D.

Weeden probably would be if he wasn't old enough to retire from the NFL already.

and they would have picked your QB up off the carpet 50 times or until they had to roll the ambulance out onto the field to rush him to the hospital for total body trauma as alabama finished off a 52-0 beatdown of OSU. You see LSU does have a touigh defense, you have none and your offense would never have scored on that defense. When is everyone going to get it? No other conference in the nation plays football like the SEC. Cry us a river cuz YOU'RE 40! YOU'RE a man!! haha, what a clown act.

Gundy's a man ... so I have no doubt his statements are true lol

January 10, 2012  08:55 AM ET

what? Zero Touchdowns? Wasn't that Trent Richardson i saw zipping into the endzone with that burst of speed and power only he possesses? You can't even write a story with correct facts? Well I didn't know they just made stuff up here so this is a waste.

There was no denying Bama last night. What an embarassment for LSU and Les Miles.

Why is there a photo of Aaron Rodgers listed as a photo of Mike Gundy?

January 10, 2012  09:08 AM ET

Like I said yesterday....Okie Lite could have scored 16-21 points on either team. Problem is, IMO, thier D couldn't hold Gump or LUS under 40. Richardson would have had 200+ rushing in them.

I will admit, it would have been a better game to watch, though....should have seen Bama vs. Okie Lite is a semi-final game.

Or they were lulled to sleep by the least exciting game that no one outside Louisiana and Alabama wanted to see. We already saw this snooze fest months ago and we had to suffer through it again.

I thought it was a great game and it was 1 penalty from being flawless.

We already saw a bunch of games during bowl season that had no D but tons of offense. So what that there wasn't a ton of offense, we got to see something that has never happened, a team was shut out of a BCS game.

It was unbelievable how Bama only allowed them past mid field once and their only penalty came with minutes left in the game. This team was as close to perfection as any team could get!
