I could be wrong, but I expect record viewer ratings for this year's Championship Game. Controversy breeds interest. Still, it's every man's right to protest how he (or she) sees fit. You'll likely miss a great football game, though. Enjoy the Wrestling!

I'm looking forward to the BCS National Championship Game, and the 6th consecutive title for the SEC (straight face). Players and teams should not be punished for playing with the hand they've been dealt. The game will be an excellent match up, and will be a very different game than the first meeting. The level of bellyaching that surrounds this game is unbelievable. If you truly enjoy College Football, you'd be crazy not to watch. NO OTHER COMBINATION OF TEAMS WILL PLACE MORE NFL DRAFT PICKS ON THE FIELD THAN THESE TWO. Alabama has more NFL prospects than LSU. What's not to like?

All of this could have been avoided if Ok State had won the games they were suppose to win. All of Bama's victories were by more than two touchdowns. Many of the opponents were undefeated, and ranked when the games were played. We didn't win our conference or division, but we still have only one loss. Bama shoulda, coulda, woulda won the game against LSU, but didn't. No one else has even come close to these two teams. Like it or not, the system worked this year. Enjoy!

There are definitely some very talented players in the Big Twelve on both sides of the ball. I was speaking more about complete units. Ok State gives up an average of 27 points a game. Alabama surrenders about 7 points per contest. We surrendered a total of 9 points (3 in O.T.) to LSU. They have a decent offense, too. Arkansas hung 14 on us. There offense reminds me a great deal of Ok State. I know it's comparing apples to oranges, but once again there are no playoffs, so what else can we do? We need a playoff!

I don't want to come across as denigrating Oklahoma State. They are a quality team, both coaches, and players. I don't necessarily agree that there schedule was more difficult, though. I haven't noticed any outstanding defenses in the Big 12. Both Alabama and LSU have typically gone four deep on there rosters by the third quarter in games this year, and have limited there offensive teams to running the ball to kill clock. The margin of victory for both teams could have been much greater in most of the games they have played. It's worth mentioning that this has come against some of the best defensive teams in the nation. Strength of schedule seems to be a beauty contest between conferences and prognosticators. SEC teams usually fare well out of conference regardless of there in conference standing. Strength of schedule is a relative value, at best. Why not base an SEC regular season schedule on conference success during the BCS era. No one in the SEC has an easy road to walk.

Until we have a playoff, I guess we'll never truly know who the best team is. That is the BCS in a nutshell. Still, If there were a playoff, would you watch LSU vs. Bama in a final? My opinion is that the end result would produce the same game. It's total speculation on my part, but I am basing that on what I've seen during the season. It hurts to say, but USC looks like a better team than OK State. VT should also be in the conversation. Once again it's only an opinion, but Until we have a way of deciding champions on the field, we have to guess.
