08:18 AM ET 05.30 | The BCS Championship Game loss is nearly five months old, but, in the eyes of some, LSU is still reeling. The evidence has poured out of the mouths of everyone from the chancellor to the AD to the head football coach. How shaken has LSU been? The chancellor and AD don't want to play Florida every year anymore. If they do, the head football coach doesn't want it to count in the SEC standings. ... If LSU wants to play the advantage/disadvantage game, someone should point out to Martin and Alleva that the Tigers have played in the BCS Championship Game three times, and each time they got to play in the Superdome in New Orleans, in their own backyard in their own home state.

C'mon you bayou bengals! What's up with that? The winner of our game usually ends up playing in the SEC Champ game!

Odd timing. Its not like UF has been a terror on the field lately.

Good grief. The Birmingham "News". Might as well get the Enquirer's sports page.

LSU is giving UF more credit than they deserve.

ROFLMAO! LUS is scared of UF?!? Hardly.

SOS has apparently made some inroads into his pet peeve with some folks. Hey LUS, I didn't know Le Smiles drank the SOS kool-aid. Sorry, but I don't buy that whole argument -- an SEC game is an SEC game, and they all count, fellas. Deal with it. Drop on over to the Big XII if you're unhappy with the league rules, I hear they are looking for some teams to their east.

But don't think I'm gonna let LUS forget that Les Timex wants to ditch the Gators, not for one minute...

The West fears the East.

This is really a dumb article because the conference makes the schedule not LSU. It was a simple thing you played each team in your division and round robin in the other division. But with two new teams this year maybe LSU want like playing one of them each year either.

Of course they are. They scurrred...

Oh crap what a damn -ucking article!!! "The chancellor and AD don't want to play Florida every year anymore. If they do, the head football coach doesn't want it to count in the SEC standings". Aren't they both in the same (SEC) conference??

Yes Sir it is, but why is it with Deep Creek? That's right, he got his SEC card, from GR I think, see what has happened now!

Uhh, it's still in the mail, I think.

It's okay if they play in the regular sesason, just don't count it in the SEC standings, that way the BCS can justify Florida playing in the BCS CG, with only one loss, that being to LSU!!!!! LMFAO.

May 30, 2012  09:54 AM ET

well while we're at it, I'd rather UTk's yearly game against Bama not count either...unless UTk wins.

So that means it'll never count again.
