Spurrier is by far a better X’s & O’s coach than what Saban !! Spurrier rode is self made fun & fun offense to a conference championship at a place like Duke. Saban on the other hand only goes 34-24-1 at Michigan St., with only 1 season with less than 5 losses !! Hell, Spurrier even won the east and had 3 straight 11 win seasons at South Carolina. Saban has been nothing without being to put talent all of the other teams that he has to play against. Take away all of those #1 ranked recruiting classes and you’ll see just how good of a coach Saban is. Championships ?? Spurrier didn’t have the luxury of coaching the majority of his teams during the BCS & CFP era like Saban has, that makes for a big difference. The BCS & CFP era has allowed for Saban to have more opportunities to be awarded a mythical FBS football national championship than what Spurrier was during his hay day of the 1990’s. Then, you had to go into the postseason ranked #1 or hope that whoever was playing the #1 team in the postseason beat them ( which wasn’t always the #2 ranked team ), with you also winning your postseason bowl game. Spurrier did more with less than what Saban ever has. I would’ve loved to’ve seen Spurrier with all of those #1 ranked recruiting classes at his disposal !!! LSU already had a very good roster before Saban became their head coach despite their win / loss record during DiNardo’s last 2 seasons. LSU was a 9 & 10 win team just 2 seasons prior to Saban becoming their head coach. DiNardo replacing Carl Reese with Lou Tipper after Reese left to be the defensive coordinator at Texas. Tipper was absolutely terrible with his soft zone defense, that was DiNardo’s downfall at LSU !! Yes, like it or not but LSU called a fool for hiring a no name coach in Nick Saban by the national sports news media outlets, Saban was far from a household name prior to LSU hiring him !! Some of you people need to learn your college football history before you talk !!
Alabama hasn't been awarded a mythical FBS football national championship in every decade since the 1960's
LSU was the best team the entire 2007 season. They loss 2 games in overtime that were borderline blowouts until Les Miles totally let off the gas in the 2nd halfs of those games. Everybody for the most part had 2 or more losses that season,with LSU having beat most of the other 2 loss teams that season in head to head games !! Alabama scored all of 1 TD in 8 quarters & an overtime against LSU in the 2011 season. LSU lost 2 starters in an extra game, the SEC Championship game that Alabama didn't have to play. Those 2 starters were unable to play in the BCS mythical FBS football national championship game because of those injuries. LSU played against the 6th ranked strength of schedule, Oklahoma St. Played against the 8th, while Alabama only played against the 29th ranked strength of schedule in the 2011 season. Both LSU & Oklahoma St. Won their conference, while Alabama didn't even win their own division of their conference that season. Alabama loss their biggest game of the season, which was a home game for them. Alabama didn't beat a single top 10 ranked team during the regular season as well. The real numbers clearly say that LSU & Oklahoma St. should've been the 2 teams playing in the 2011 BCS mythical FBS football national championship game. Nick Saban even screwed over Oklahoma St. on his Coaches Poll ballot during the week that the Coaches Poll would be used to help determine who would play in the BCS mythical FBS football national championship game. That classless move help to get his Alabama team in that game over Oklahoma St. by the closest margin in the history of the BCS between the #2 & #3 ranked teams. Several major NCAA recognized selectors awarded their mythical FBS football national championship for the 2011 season to LSU over Alabama. The major NCAA recognized selector, The Colley Matrix Rating System awarded their mythical FBS football national championship for the 2011 season to Oklahoma St. over both LSU & Alabama !! In the 2017 season, The Colley Matrix Rating System awarded their mythical FBS football national championship for the 2017 season to undefeated UCF over 1 loss Alabama. UCF did beat the Auburn team that Alabama loss to that same season !!
Yep,LSU is only 1 of 12 FBS football programs with 800 or more all-time wins. They're 1 of only 10 FBS football programs thats played in 50 or more all-time bowl games.LSU was the 1st southern football program to ever be awarded a mythical college football national championship by a major recognized selector, 1908 by The National Championship Foundation. LSU has been awarded a mythical FBS football national championship by at least one major NCAA recognized selector in 10 different seasons,1908,1935,1936,1958,1959,1962,20003,2007,2011 & 2019. LSU is 1 of only 4 FBS football programs, along with Notre Dame, USC & Miami thats had 4 different head coaches to be awarded a major wire service ( AP & or Coaches Poll's ) mythical FBS football national championship since the start of the poll era in 1936.The College Football Date Warehouse ranks LSU as being the 7th best program in the history of college football !!
Alabama had 6 yards rushing in that game against a team that was missing 9 different defensive players that started games this season, along with about as many on the offensive side of the ball. They were literally 2 overthrown passes in the end zone, one by less than 6 inches away from losing that game. LSU kicks the FG’s they win the game anyway !!! Either LSU is a lot better than given credit for, which I honestly think is the case because of everything they’ve had to deal with or Alabama is a lot weaker than what everybody thinks !!!
Maybe so, but give LSU their due respect !! LSU & Alabama’s win / loss record over their last 21 regular season games against each other since the 2000 season !! LSU - 10 wins Alabama - 11 wins
And ??? Nobody made you read anything scooter !! Yet it’s more factual than what the actual article itself is !! Just out of curiosity though, what difference does it make as to how long something is that somebody else posted, I mean it wasn’t like you were the one that actually took the time to type it, now did you ??? Yet I will say this much about it !!! Just like the one that wrote the article, well had he taken the time to actually research as to why something was said, well than he would’ve known as to why the person said what he did pertaining to the LSU job, instead of looking like an idiot talking about how he doesn’t see what was said actually happening because of Nick Saban being at Alabama. Yet Nick Saban his self has already said basically the exact same thing about the LSU job as what the guy from ESPN said !!! Had he researched the actual real numbers before writing the article, well than once again he would’ve seen why it’s said that with the right coach LSU could own the SEC West whether if Nick Saban is at Alabama or not !! The LSU job clearly supplies a coach with easier to obtain resources to be successful than what the Alabama job does !!! Nick Saban has to be able to have great players too, to be successful as a head football coach, the 34-24-1 win / loss record at Michigan St., along with the 15-17 win / loss record with the Miami Dolphins tells us that much is true !!! Now if somebody is starting to pull more & more of those resources away from Saban, well than the less opportunity Saban has to be dominant over the program that’s pulling those resources away from him !!! That’s what the guy from ESPN was meaning by what he said !!! Nick Saban can’t win with a team full of scrub players either, just like everybody else !!! Sometimes you just have to lead some people along and hand feed them detail for detail for them to be able to put 2 & 2 together for them to be able to understand as to what someone is actually meaning by what they say, because they obviously can’t figure it out on their own without having someone to explain to them step for step as to why that person said what they said about something !!!
Actually, Nick Saban said the LSU job is a better job than what the Alabama job is. He said that for the same reason why the ESPN analyst said what he did about it !! LSU & Alabama check all of the same boxes for the most part, yet LSU has a glaring advantage over Alabama when it comes to instate recruiting. In other words, LSU has a lot more top tier type high school talent in close proximity to the school that what Alabama does. LSU is the only traditional FBS football superpower that’s located in one of the most talent rich states in the country !! That’s why the LSU job is considered as being one of if not the most desirable job in major college football !! Here’s some more stats for you !! LSU & Alabama’s head to head win / loss record over their last 21 regular season games against each other since the 2000 season is, Alabama - 11 wins & LSU - 10 wins. Number of conference championships since the 2000 season, Alabama - 7 & LSU - 5. National ranking in the overall highest winning percentage over the last 2 decades since the 2000 season, the 2000-2019 seasons, LSU - 77.9% & Alabama - 76.3%. Number of losing seasons since the 2000 season, Alabama - 5 & LSU - 0. Now for the ones that honestly know the real truth about so-called FBS football national championships, well than they know exactly what I’m talking about with what I’m fixing to say !! Number of times to be awarded a mythical FBS football national championship by at least one major NCAA recognized selector, in the same season in which that team also won their conference championship in since the 2000 season. LSU - 4 2003, 2007, 2011 & 2019 Alabama - 4 2009, 2012, 2015 & 2020 Yes, for the ones that know how it really works, well they know that LSU was awarded the 2011 mythical FBS football national championship by numerous different major NCAA recognized selectors over Alabama for that season. Therefore meaning that LSU has just as much of a claim for the 2011 season as what Alabama does, right ?? LSU, Alabama & Ohio St. are the only 3 FBS football programs that’s been awarded a Major Wire Service ( AP, Coaches & or UPI Polls ), BCS & CFP mythical FBS football national championships !!! LSU, Notre Dame, USC & Miami are the only 4 FBS football programs thats had 4 different head football coaches to be awarded a mythical FBS football national championship by at least one Major Wire Service since the start of the poll era in 1936 !! The last 3 Biletnikoff Trophy winners, Cee Dee Lamb, Ja’Marr Chase & DeVonta Smith are all from Louisiana !! LSU is the only FBS football program in the country that’s had their last 3 consecutive head football coaches to be awarded a mythical FBS football national championship while coaching at LSU !! LSU was the only SEC football program that won 200 or more games over the last 2 completed decades since the start of the 2000 season, the 2000 - 2019 seasons. Alabama won 203 games over that same time period, but they had NCAA vacated games in the 2005, 2006 & 2007 seasons, which took their win total back down below 200 wins for that time period !! LSU, Ohio St., Oklahoma & Boise St. were the only 4 FBS football programs that accomplished that feat !! LSU was the first FBS football program to ever be awarded 2 BCS mythical FBS football national championships, 2003 & 2007 !! LSU has the overall highest winning percentage in all of college football in regular season wins against non-conference opponents since the 2000 season, 2nd place on that list isn’t even remotely close to LSU’s in said type games over that same time period !!! LSU is the only FBS football program in the country thats been awarded at least 1 mythical FBS football national championship by at least one major NCAA recognized selector in each of the 4 half decades since the 2000 season, 2003, 2007, 2011 & 2019 !! Ed Orgeron was 1 of only 2 FBS head football coaches that’s being paid over $9 million dollars a year, with Nick Saban being the only other one !! LSU’s Tiger Stadium has the 6th largest capacity in major college football !! LSU & Alabama are tied with each other in having the 2nd most number of players to be drafted by the NFL since the 2000 season, trailing only Ohio St. !! LSU has been awarded the 2nd most mythical FBS football national championships since the 2000 season, trailing only Alabama !!! Look at the number of high profile players that Alabama has had over the last decade or so from Louisiana, All-Americans & even a Heisman Trophy winner !! LSU has every single thing it takes to be an extremely dominant program at their disposal !!! That’s why people say the LSU job is a top 1% job in major college football. For example, the before mention comment made by Nick Saban 2 or 3 years back. Saban stated that the single worst mistake he’s ever made in his coaching career was leaving LSU, along with saying that it was much easier for him to recruit at LSU than what it is for him at Alabama, noting the instate recruiting advantage that LSU has over Alabama !! Former Florida & South Carolina head football coach Steve Spurrier said that the LSU & Georgia jobs are the 2 best jobs in college football !! Former NFL & major college position coach Pete Jenkins said that the LSU job is the best job in all of football regardless of the level !! In a national poll conducted on college football coaches from across the country a couple of years back, the LSU job was voted as being the 4th best job in major college football, along with being the 2nd best job in the SEC, trailing only the overall #1 ranked job in that poll, Georgia !! Just today on ESPN, it was said by a college football insider that he’s been told by several coaches that nobody is gonna make any kind of move to pursue the USC job until after the LSU job has been filled 1st. He said that all of the coaches view the LSU job as being the far more desirable job between the 2 jobs !!! Nick Saban at Michigan St. before going to LSU, 34-24-1, with only 1 season with less than 5 losses !! 2003 mythical FBS football national champions !! Les Miles at Oklahoma St. before going to LSU, 28-24 !! 2007 mythical FBS football national champions !! 2011 unclaimed mythical FBS football national champions !! Ed Orgeron at Ole Miss, interim at USC & interim at LSU before becoming the full time head coach at LSU, 22-29 !! 2019 mythical FBS football national champions !! The entire ESPN Game Day crew during the 2019 season all agreed that Nick Saban had 6 mythical FBS football national championships to his credit ( at that time ) between his 1 at LSU & 5 at Alabama. They all agreed that had he stayed at LSU instead of going to the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, well than Saban more than likely would have been awarded 10 plus mythical FBS football national championships to his credit by now !! Now do you understand why it was said that with the right coach LSU could own the SEC West ??
I’ve never read a more uneducated article in my entire life than what this one is !! Arkansas is by far a more historical college football program than what Clemson is, it’s honestly not even close !!! All-Time Top 25 Team Ranking’s, based off of the formula used by The College Football Data Warehouse in their All-Time Team Rankings list. The College Football Data Warehouse is a “REAL NUMBERS” ranking that’s based 100% off of what each program has actually accomplished on the field of play. In other words, it’s not a Sports News Media Outlet ranking that based more around opinions of the voters, instead of being based off of the actual real numbers !! 1. Alabama 2. Notre Dame 3. USC 4. Oklahoma 5. Ohio St. 6. Michigan 7. LSU 8. Texas 9. Nebraska 10. Tennessee 11. Georgia 12. Florida 13. Auburn 14. Penn St. 15. Miami 16. Georgia Tech 17. Minnesota 18. Florida St. 19. Michigan St. 20. Texas A&M 21. Washington 22. Pittsburgh 23. ****ARKANSAS **** 24. UCLA 25. Ole Miss 33. ****CLEMSON**** Do you want to go with ALL-TIME STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE PLAYED AGAINST as well ??? Why Not, Right ??? ALL-TIME STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE PLAYED AGAINST. Arkansas - 794.06 Clemson - 694.38 Clemson’s 694.38 All-Time Strength of Schedule Played Against ranks as the 45th weakest All-Time Strength of Schedule Played Against among the All-Time Top 50 Ranked Programs in the history of college football according to the “REAL NUMBERS” complied by The College Football Data Warehouse’s All-Time Strength of Schedule Played Against Rankings List !!! Arkansas’s 794.06 All-Time Strength of Schedule Played Against is a very respectable Number. It’s not quite to the level of other SEC member programs such as LSU, Alabama, Auburn & Georgia, who all have an All-Time Strength of Schedule Played Against Ranking, that ranks Top 5 All-Time in the history of college football. Michigan is the 5th program in that group of 5. Naturally programs such as LSU, Alabama, Auburn & Georgia are gonna have extremely high All-Time Strength of Schedule Played Against Numbers, simply by virtue of those programs all playing together with each other for over 120 years across 3 different major conferences of the time, the SIAA, SIC & SEC, while Arkansas has spent the majority of their football programs history in the SWC with football power programs such as Texas & Texas A&M, along with earlier power programs such as SMU, TCU & Rice.. All-Time Winning Percentage. Arkansas - 59% Clemson - 60% Remember now, Arkansas’s is only 1% less than what Clemson’s is, even while playing against a much harder All-Time Strength of Schedule than what Clemson has played against !! Between 1922 - 1932 Clemson did spend some time in the SIC with the majority of the current SEC & ACC member schools. Yet when the 13 best football playing schools of the SIC, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi ( Ole Miss ), Mississippi St., Suwanee College, Tennessee, Tulane & Vanderbilt all broke off from the SIC in 1932 to form the purpose built SEC to showcase Southern Football. Back in those days Southern Football was considered as not being as good as what football from the other parts of the country was. Basically since it’s inception in 1933 the SEC has morphed into the most dominant conference in the history of major college football boasting all-time perennial powers such as LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia,Tennessee & Mississippi, all of which are considered as being an ALL-TIME TOP 25 RANKED COLLEGE FOOTBALL PROGRAMS, along with Alabama, LSU & Tennessee all being considered as ALL-TIME TOP 10 RANKED PROGRAMS IN THE HISTORY OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL !! Meaning while SIC member school Clemson was never even considered as being a viable option to become an SEC charter member school. Between 1933-1955 Clemson continued to as an SIC member school along with the likes of The Citadel, Davidson & Washington & Lee, among other such programs of that same caliber. In head to head games between Clemson & an SEC member schools, Clemson only boast an abysmal 56-99-5 All-Time Win / Loss Record in such games, which only makes for a 36% winning percentage all-time against SEC member schools. I guess that answers the question as to why the SEC charter member schools didn’t bring Clemson along with them in 1933 when they formed the SEC !! Some people will try to count games against South Carolina into that number prior to South Carolina joining the SEC in 1992 in an attempt to try to make Clemson’s overall win / loss record against SEC member schools to look better than what it actually is. That’s not how it works, any game played between Clemson & South Carolina prior to 1992 doesn’t count into that number, just simply because that wasn’t an SEC member school when those games were played. Yet even with counting all of those kind of games into Clemson’s overall numbers, Clemson is still only 112-160-14, which still makes for an abysmal win / loss record at the end of the day in such games. I’M SORRY, BUT CLEMSON ISN’T A PERENNIAL POWER FOOTBALL PROGRAM IN MAJOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL, THEY’RE A NEWBIE !!! Clemson is nothing more than just a middle of the road program historically, who just happens to be on a little ole 6 or 7 year FLASH IN THE PAN ROLL BECAUSE OF PLAYING OUT OF AN EXTREMELY WEAK ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE. At the end of the 2019 season, Clemson was the only single ACC member school that was even ranked in the final top 25 poll’s for the 2019 season !! Clemson has an ALL-TIME LOSING RECORD TO, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech ( while playing as an SEC member school ), Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee & Tulane ( while playing as an SEC member school ). Clemson has a .500 win / loss record against, Florida, Mississippi St., & Vanderbilt. Clemson has an All-Time Winning Record against, South Carolina & Texas A&M. Clemson has never played Arkansas or Missouri !!!! NOW DOES THAT SOUND LIKE A PERENNIAL COLLEGE FOOTBALL SUPERPOWER TO YOU ??? THAT’S WHY THEY ONLY HAVE AN ALL-TIME TEAM RANKING OF 33rd NATIONALLY !!!! What Clemson is doing right now, well it’s what they should’ve been doing for years now, since 1933 to be exact, but they didn’t. There was absolutely nobody in the SIC after the SEC charter member schools left the conference in 1932. Clemson played for 20 years in the SIC with absolutely nobody of note being in the conference with them. In1953 Clemson became an ACC charter member school, with it not being until 1979 when Georgia Tech joined the conference. After that Florida St. didn’t join the ACC until 1992. SO NOW TELL ME SOMETHING, WHAT IN THE HELL WAS CLEMSON DOING BETWEEN 1933-2016 ??? ONCE AGAIN, NOW DO YOU SEE WHY CLEMSON ISN’T CONSIDERED AS BEING A PERENNIAL COLLEGE FOOTBALL SUPERPOWER ???? By the way, Vanderbilt was actually one of the very 1st southern football superpowers in the early days of the sport. As they amassed 11 combined conference championships in football across both the SIAA & SIC, along with being awarded 2 consecutive mythical college football national championships in 1921 & 1922. Since becoming an SEC charter member school in 1933, Vanderbilt has never won another conference championship in football !!!! *Side Note LSU was the very 1st Southern Football Playing School to ever be awarded a mythical college football national championship, in1908 awarded to them by The National Championship Foundation !! The next part of the article that needs some correction work !!! This isn’t a backdoor attempt to slight Alabama in anyway, as it’s just stating what the actual “REAL NUMBERS” are, instead of going off of the writer’s guesswork numbers !!! The writer claimed that every SEC West football program outside of Alabama should be worried about adding both Oklahoma & Texas to the SEC. That’s an uneducated comment that I 100% totally disagree with. Now had the writer actually done his homework instead of just throwing “GUESSWORK” thoughts against the wall to see if they’ll stick. Well than he wouldn’t known that LSU has by far been better against both Oklahoma & Texas historically than what any other SEC football program as been. Let’s start with Win / Loss Records against both Oklahoma & Texas. LSU LSU vs Oklahoma - 2-1 LSU vs Texas - 8-9-1 Overall - 10-10-1 Alabama Alabama vs Oklahoma - 2-3-1 Alabama vs Texas - 1-7-1 Overall - 3-10-2 Now let’s with LSU & Alabama’s head to head win / loss record over their last 21 regular season games against each other since the 2000 season. Alabama - 11 wins LSU - 10 wins Now let’s go with overall winning percentage over the past 2 decades, the 2000-2019 seasons. LSU - 77.9% Alabama - 76.9% National ranking in overall winning percentage over that same 20 year time period, the 2000-2019 seasons. 1. Boise St. 2. Ohio St. 3. Oklahoma 4. LSU 5. Alabama 6. Georgia 7. Clemson 8. App St. 9. Oregon 10. USC LSU is a combined 3-0 against both Oklahoma & Ohio St., while not having played Boise St. over that same time period. LSU also has the overall highest winning percentage among that group of 10 teams in head to head games against each other during that same 20 year time period !!! Number of conference championships since the 2000 season. Alabama - 7 LSU - 5 Starting to see the trend yet as to just how close those 2 programs overall numbers over the last 20 years honestly are with each other ??? Let’s continue !! National ranking in the overall number of players to be drafted by the NFL since the 2000 season. #1. Ohio St. #2. TIE, LSU & Alabama #4. Miami #5. Florida #6. Georgia National ranking in the overall highest winning percentage in regular season games against non-conference opponents since the 2000 season. This one is absolutely INSANELY GOOD !! 1. LSU - 96% ( that’s an absolutely unreal number. ) 2. Not even close enough to even write down, that’s how impressive LSU’s 96% winning percentage in such games actually is. Let this sink in for a second here. We’re not talking about a 96% winning percentage in such games over a single season, a 5 year time period or even a decade here. That’s a 96% winning percentage in such games over the last 21 consecutive years. Yes, that’s an NCAA All-Time Record that will probably never be broken, that’s how impressive that number honestly is, it’s absolutely unreal. This is what makes it even more impressive. That number didn’t come by way of loading their non-conference regular season schedule up with a bunch of FCS teams every year. That’s a number they achieved by loading up and hitting the road to play the likes of top 3 ranked programs such as Oregon & top 12 ranked West Virginia in the same season !!! That is honestly one of the most impressive stats in the entire history of major college football !!! Number of FBS football programs that won 200 or more games over the first 2 decades of the 2000’s, the 2000-2019 seasons. 4 - LSU, Oklahoma, Ohio St. & Boise St. ( Alabama won 203 games over that time period, but they had some NCAA vacated games in the 2005, 2006 & 2007 seasons, which took their overall total number of wins for that time period back down below 200 wins for that time period. ) Number of SEC football programs that won 100 or more games a decade, for each of the last 2 decades since the 2000 season. 1 - LSU National ranking in the overall highest winning percentage against top 25 ranked teams over the last completed decade, the 2010-2019 seasons. 1. Ohio St. - 78% 2. Alabama - 77% 3. LSU - 72% 4. Clemson - 66% 5. Oklahoma - 65% National ranking in the overall most number of wins against top 25 ranked teams over that same time period, 2010-2019 seasons. 1. Alabama - 51 2. LSU - 45 3. Ohio St. - 35 4. Oklahoma - 34 5. Clemson - 29 LSU also has the current longest active streak among all SEC football programs with 21 consecutive seasons without having a losing record. First FBS football program to ever be awarded 2 BCS mythical FBS football national championships. LSU - 2003 & 2007 First FBS football program to ever be awarded 2 CFP mythical FBS football national championships. Alabama - 2015 & 2017 Number of FBS football programs that’s been awarded a Major Wire Service ( AP, Coaches & or UPI Poll’s ), BCS & CFP mythical FBS football national championships. 3 - LSU, Alabama & Ohio St. Number of times to be awarded a mythical FBS football national championship by at least one major NCAA recognized selector since the 2000 season. 1. Alabama - 6 2009, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2017 & 2020 2. LSU - 4 2003, 2007, 2011 & 2019 3. Florida - 2 2006 & 2008 3. Ohio St. - 2 2002 & 2014 3. USC - 2 2003 & 2004 3. Clemson - 2 2016 & 2018 7. Auburn - 1 2010 7. Oklahoma - 1 2000 7. Texas - 1 2005 7. Florida St. - 1 2013 7. Miami - 1 2001 7. UCF - 1 2017 The 2003, 2011 & 2017 seasons all had more than one team to be awarded the mythical FBS football national championship by at least one major NCAA recognized selector. 2003 - LSU & USC 2011 - LSU & Alabama 2017 - Alabama & UCF Therefore meaning that all of those teams have the rightful claim to all of those seasons as being a mythical FBS football national championship season for their school. Number of times to be awarded a mythical FBS football national championship by at least one major NCAA recognized selector, in the same season in which that team also won their conference championship in that same season since the 2000 season. LSU - 4 2003, 2007, 2011 & 2019 Alabama - 4 2009, 2012, 2015 & 2020 No other FBS football program in the country has accomplished that same feat more than 2 times over that same time period. Most all Sports News Media Services across the country in various different orders rank LSU, Alabama & Ohio St. as being the overall 3 best FBS football programs in the country over the last 20 years !!! Now I’m not a fan of any particular FBS football program, as I’m just a huge college football fan in general, while also enjoying the study of the real numbers from the historical context side of things. In my personal opinion the most unsold program in the history of major college football is without a doubt LSU, I mean the writer of this very uneducated article his self was even doing it. Case in point, every SEC West football program other than Alabama should be very worried about Texas & Oklahoma joining the SEC he claimed. Yet he never once backed that statement up with any kind of hard numbers. In fact, the actual truth is he actually thought that he knew a lot more about the actual “REAL NUMBERS” than what he honestly did !!! Clemson is not perennial college football superpower by any means, while LSU is actually one of the top 6 or 8 programs in the entire history of the game. Case in point, LSU is the only SEC member school that doesn’t have an Alll-Time Losing Record to any conference as a whole, they’re the single only one that’s accomplished that feat. He was also completely clueless to the fact that no other SEC member football program has better all-time numbers against both Oklahoma & Texas than what LSU does, that’s including Alabama. You know, the only SEC West program that doesn’t need to be concerned with Texas & Oklahoma joining the SEC, right ??? The actual “REAL TRUTH” is the fact that no other SEC west program possibly stands to lose more than what Alabama does because of Texas & Oklahoma joining the SEC. You see unlike LSU, Texas A&M & Arkansas, Alabama is the “NEWBIE” program when it comes to pulling top recruits out of Texas, not LSU, Texas A&M & Arkansas. Those programs have been locked up in head to head recruiting battles for the same players for over 100 years with each other. Now let’s go on ahead and be straight up 100% honestly about it. Both LSU & Texas A&M have a better recruiting grounds than what Alabama has right now or probably ever will have to be completely honest about it. From Dallas south down through Houston and back east to the Louisiana State line. Well that part of East Texas is where about 90% of the top ranked Texas high school talent comes from. Obviously unbeknownst to the writer of the article, both LSU & Texas A&M have a huge following in that part of the East Texas. Hell, LSU is more often than not the school that you have to beat for the top high school players from around the Houston area. Texas & Oklahoma joining the SEC will have no more of an affect on LSU, Texas A&M & Arkansas in recruiting than what it ever has for them went having to recruit against Texas or Oklahoma. Alabama is the one with the smaller following & Shallower roots when it comes to recruiting the state of Texas. It’s the top ranked recruits that Alabama is pulling out of Texas that could actually end up being the one’s that’s more prong to spurn Alabama and choose to stay home or stay closer to home by electing to go to Texas or Oklahoma. It’s Alabama that has to rely more on out of state recruits more so than what those other programs do outside of Arkansas. Some will want to argue the fact that Oklahoma would be in that same situation as Arkansas, but it’s truly not the same. As North Texas is as much of a traditional recruiting grounds for Oklahoma as what Birmingham is for Alabama !!! Just take Jalen Hurts for example, Texas kid that goes to Alabama, chooses to transfer from Alabama, ends up at Oklahoma. Had Oklahoma been an SEC member school when Hurts was coming out of high school, well from all accounts it would’ve been a very high probability that Hurts would’ve ended up at Oklahoma from the start it’s been said. As crazy as it might sound to most, but it’s without a doubt Alabama that stands to lose the most among the SEC West teams because of Texas & Oklahoma joining the SEC !!!!
Those rankings don’t mean anything, I’ll explain !! You can rank a team wherever you want in a poll, but that still doesn’t change the fact that some teams had an easier road to obtain that ranking. That’s his main point about games not being played on paper, they’re played on the field. Those other teams played their games on the field to be where they’re at, while Ohio St. has only been given credit for what the paper says they should do, simply because they haven’t really played enough games out on the field to give you a true evaluation on Ohio St.
Y’all are totally missing his point !! Had Florida not played but 6 games, well than they wouldn’t have had the losses to LSU & Alabama. A lot of things can happen to a team over a 5 or 6 game period. Who’s know what Ohio St.’s record would’ve been had they had to play the same number of games that the other teams did. Those other teams had to deal with a lot of different things to get to this point in the season that Ohio St. didn’t have to worry about as much as what those other teams did because of the lack of games that Ohio St. played. For example, does a team have a higher chance of losing a game if they play 11 games or 6 games ?? More games lead to more opportunities to lose a game. Is a team more apt to have players injured if they play 11 games or 6 games ?? Once again, more games leads to more opportunities of players getting hurt. That’s the kind of stuff that he’s talking about people !! LSU being a 3 win team had absolutely nothing to do with it, as it was all about having to play the extra games that Ohio St. didn’t have to play like everybody else did !! Getting off of the main subject for a minute here. Losing a game to LSU even if they were a 3 win team, isn’t something that a team would take a hard hit over. They still have one of the overall best rosters in the country, they were just a young & inexperienced team that had basically no spring or fall practice before the season started. LSU is still 1 of only 3 FBS football programs in the country that hasn’t had a losing season over the last 21 consecutive seasons. By comparison, Alabama has 5 losing seasons over that same time period. Than on top of that, the Auburn & Alabama games are really the only 2 games that they should’ve loss in my opinion. Losing a game to them isn’t a death kiss for a team !! Yet even still, what Dabo was talking about had nothing to do with that, This is what he was talking about, what’s harder on a team. Sitting at the house or playing a game against LSU ??? Obviously the correct answer is playing a game against LSU, right ?? Well that’s what Florida had to do, while Ohio St. basically got to sit at the house and play nobody !! I’m not a Dabo fan are anything like that, but he’s 100% right on this one. Ohio St. was certainly given a far easier path to the CFP, than what Alabama, Clemson & Notre Dame were !!!
LOL !!! You can definitely tell who the scoreboard fans are versus the ones that actually know the X’s & O’s of the game. Boy’s Alabama was never even a real threat to win that game. Hell, they never even had the ball in the 2nd half of that game with the opportunity to tie it or to take the lead in the game. LSU was up by 3 TD’s at halftime, alone with still being up by 2 TD’s with only 1 minute left in the game. 3 of Alabama’s TD’s in that game came off of absolute fluke plays to begin with. The punt return for a TD because of the Alabama return guy getting face-masked and spun to the opposite side of the field from where everybody as at on the play. A 60 something yard TD because of the entire LSU defense turning their head to see what the coach was hollering out on the field to them, just a second or so before the Alabama offense snapped the ball. The Alabama WR was literally behind the entire LSU defense before they ever even knew the ball was snapped on that play. An 80 something yard TD’s with only 1 minute left in the game, while trailing by 2 TD’s. The reason for that TD was because of nothing more than just flat out lazy play by the LSU high safety on the play ( Grant Delpit ). The LSU high safety had 1 job on that play, to be deeper than the deepest, don’t let anybody get behind you. The LSU corner ( Stingley ) was responsible for everything underneath, with the high safety having everything over the top. Smith ran a vertical route ( over the top ) on the play. LSU’s high safety on the play never even moved out of the middle of the field until after the ball was caught by Smith, it’s to late at that point. Now for me personally, well I would be inclined to believe that 2 TD lead with only 1 minute left in the game probably had a lot to do with that lazy play by the LSU high safety on that play !!! Alabama wouldn’t have won that game had they played for 3 days straight in that game. Go back and watch that game again, then get back up with me and tell me if LSU changed from what they were doing defensively in the 1st half of that game, to what they were doing defensively in the 2nd half of that game, ok ?? Yep, that’s right. Alabama didn’t just all of a sudden magically get that much better in the 2nd half of that game. LSU’s defense in the 2nd half of that game didn’t hardly blitz, they didn’t have a safety walked down in the box, alone with basically playing no cover 1 or cover 0 in the 2nd half of the game, like they did in the 1st half of the game. Why ??? Well that was because of the same reason why Nick Saban kept going for it on 4th down in that game. That reason was because every single one of them knew that there wasn’t anyway in hell that Alabama’s defense could stop LSU’s offense in that game. LSU made Alabama’s offense play in front of their defense in the 2nd half of that game. The purpose for that was to make Alabama to have to burn a lot of clock offensively to move the ball. Hence, the old analogy of shortening the game. That’s right, LSU’s defense actually played the clock more so than they did Alabama’s offense in the 2nd half of that game. Alabama had consecutive scores in that game without LSU scoring one single time in that game. LSU completely controlled that game from the 2nd drive until the end of the game. If Alabama had such a great opportunity to win that game, well than why did they get completely man handled by LSU on their last 2 offensive possession in that game when it got time for LSU to close the game out ???? On LSU’s 2nd to last possession in the game they lined up and shoved the ball down Alabama’s throat all the way down the field on that possession, Clyde Edwards ran not 1 but 2 Alabama defensive players smooth the hell over at the 2 yard line to score a TD on that play, I mean ran both of them smooth the hell over while never even checking up en route to the end zone for a TD on that play. Alabama then gets their little cheap over the top 80 something yard TD with only 1 minute left in the game while trailing by 2 TD’s, only because of very lazy play out of Grant Delpit on that play. LSU gets the ball back for their last offensive possession in the game. During that drive LSU got their last 1st down in the game. On that play the LSU offense drove the entire Alabama defense 15 yards down the field on that play, they literally threw Alabama’s defense around like they were a Jr. High defense on that play. Truth be known, LSU honestly could’ve scored again on that drive had they wanted too !!! They were already in FG range, alone with the fact that Alabama’s defense did absolutely nothing whatsoever on those last 2 LSU offensive possessions that said that they could keep LSU from scoring a TD had LSU wanted too !!! Don’t let that scoreboard fool you, LSU completely controlled that game. I’m no LSU fan, but I do know X’s & O’s football, LSU did whatever they wanted to do in that game. Alabama was having to try to play catch-up football from the 2nd drive on in that game !!! That game was no where close to being as good as what that scoreboard might would lead people to believe. LSU completely owned that game !!!

Cocky ass Georgia thought the same thing this past season, just like they did the season before that, right ?? How did that work out for Georgia ?? Yep, Georgia got 2 beat downs put on that a$$ !!! I mean you do realize that LSU has been right there with those top 5 ranked recruiting classes too, just like Georgia & Alabama!! They beat the piss out of Georgia playing with 2 star players playing in key positions. So now all of a sudden why do you think that LSU wouldn’t beat the piss out of Georgia again ?? I mean that’s not Florida or South Carolina that you’re talking about. LOL !!! They impressed Kirby enough to copy what they did with their offense, now didn’t they ???
The actual truth is Derrick Henry isn’t even 1 of the top 10 best RB’s that’s ever played in the SEC. Hell, he’s probably not even in the top 20, but you jackasses are gonna try to talk like he’s on Herschel Walker or Bo Jackson’s level. Derrick Henry isn’t even on Darren McFadden or Kevin Faulk’s level, much less Herschel Walker or Bo Jackson’s.
The single best defensive performance that Nick Saban has ever had against an elite up tempo spread offense was when he ran crying to the NCAA trying to get them to outlaw them by claiming that they were dangerous to the players. LOL !!! Like I’ve said, I seriously doubt that it was just a coincidence that also happens to be the very same offensive system that Saban is absolutely clueless about knowing how to stop one. Utah, Oklahoma twice, Ohio St., Ole Miss under Hugh Freeze, Texas A&M with Johnny Manziel, Clemson, Auburn under Gus Malzahn & now LSU. Now tell me what does all of those teams have in common with each other ?? That’s right, they’ve all had success against Alabama because of their elite up tempo spread offense. The 2011 LSU team was the last team to beat Nick Saban & his Alabama team without using an up tempo spread offense. How many points did Oklahoma score on Alabama in their 2018 CFP semifinal game against each other ?? What about Clemson in the 2018 CFP mythical FBS football championship game ? Followed by the 2019 regular season games against LSU & Auburn ?? That’s right, everyone of them lit Alabama’s ass up on the scoreboard. Alabama was able to outscore Oklahoma to win the game, but they weren’t as fortunate in the games against Clemson, LSU & Auburn. Just out of curiosity, could you remind me as to how many times Nick Saban got Chip Kelly to come to Tuscaloosa to try to help him understand the RPO up tempo spread offensive system better, just simply to where he could hopefully learn how to defend against them better than what he was doing against them ?? I mean if he wasn’t struggling his ass off against them, well than the chances are he wouldn’t have been begging Chip Kelly for help to learn how to defend against them better than what he was doing against them, right ??
Oh & since Saban left LSU, LSU has been awarded a mythical FBS football national championship by at least one major awarding service in 3 different seasons. 2007, 2011 & 2019. Numerous different awarding services recognized LSU as their mythical FBS football national champions for the 2011 season over Alabama. LSU doesn’t claim it, but they have every right to claim it if they ever choose too. Between the 2005 & 2014 seasons LSU set the SEC all-time record for the most wins over a single 10 year time period, which was just recently eclipsed by only a few games by Alabama. LSU is the SEC’s most winningest football program over the last 20 years. LSU is the only SEC football program that’s won at least 100 games or more a decade, in each decade over the last 20 years. Over the last 20 consecutive seasons, LSU has only loss 3 regular season games against non-conference opponents, that’s by far the best record in all of FBS football in such games. Between the 2001 & 2017 seasons, LSU set the NCAA all-time record for the most consecutive home game wins against non-conference opponents. Between the 2002 & 2016 seasons, LSU set the NCAA all-time record for the most consecutive regular season wins against non-conference opponents, regardless of the site of the game. LSU has the 3rd longest active consecutive season bowl game appearances streak in the country. Since the 2000 season, up until right now. LSU has the 4th highest winning percentage in all of major college football. With only Ohio St., Oklahoma & Boise St. having a higher winning percentage than what LSU does over that time span. LSU has a combined 3-0 win/loss record against both Ohio St. & Oklahoma during that same time period, while not having played Boise St. LSU is the only Power 5 FBS football program that’s won at least 8 or more games every season for the last 20 consecutive years. Over the last 20 years LSU has routinely ranked in the top 3 in the country in the number of former players being on an NFL roster each season, while being ranked #1 in that stat for several of those years. At one point LSU had the most former DB’s, DL’s, WR’s & RB’s on NFL rosters at the same time. LSU is widely recognized by numerous different sports media outlets as being 1 of the top 3 best FBS football programs over the last 20 years. LSU played in all 3 of the top 3 games in the history of major college football that had the most players to play in that got drafted by the NFL. #1. 2011 regular season LSU & Alabama game. #2. 2011 LSU & Alabama BCS mythical FBS football championship game. #3. 2007 LSU & Florida game. Since the 2017 season, LSU has the best win/loss record in the country against top 10 ranked teams, 11-1. LSU has the all-time highest winning percentage in BCS bowl games, during the BCS era, 1998 season up until the 2013 season. LSU was the very first football program to be awarded 2 BCS mythical FBS football national championships. LSU has played & beat more ranked teams than what any other program in the country has since the 2000 season. In the 2015 season, LSU snapped Wisconsin’s 32 consecutive regular season game winning streak against non-conference opponents. In the 2018 season, LSU snapped UCF’s 25 game winning streak. In the 2019 season, LSU snapped Alabama’s 31 consecutive home game winning streak, alone with snapping Clemson’s 29 consecutive game winning streak. Going by the exact same awarding services that the University of Alabama has used to claim mythical FBS football national championship seasons for their school. Well than LSU has the rightful claim to 11 different mythical FBS football national championship seasons for their school. 1908, 1935, 1936, 1958, 1959, 1962, 1969, 2003, 2007, 2011 & 2019 The 1908 mythical college football national championship that was awarded to LSU by the National Championship Foundation was the very 1st time that a southern football playing school was awarded a mythical college football national championship. LSU is 1 of only 12 FBS football programs that have 800 or more all-time wins. LSU has 1 of the top 12 highest winning percentages in the history of FBS football. LSU ranks top 10 all-time in the number of bowl games that each FBS football program has played in. By the numbers compiled by the College Football Data Warehouse, LSU ranks as 1 of the top 10 greatest programs in the history of college football. Number of both claimed & unclaimed mythical FBS football national championships since the 2000 season up until right now. 1. Alabama - 5 2009, 2011, 2012, 2015 & 2017 2. LSU - 4 2003, 2007, 2011 & 2019. 3. Florida, Ohio St., Florida St., Clemson & USC - 2 7. Auburn, Texas, Oklahoma & Miami - 1 In 2 of Alabama’s 5 claimed mythical FBS football national championship seasons since the 2000 season, 2011 & 2017. Alabama didn’t even win their own division of the SEC, much less actually win their conference in those 2 seasons. LSU has accomplished all of that, while never spending a single day one on major NCAA probation.
By the numbers, no Nick Saban Coached team was statistically better than LSU’s 2019 team. Nick Saban only has 1 undefeated team since he’s been at Alabama. Nick Saban doesn’t know how to stop an elite up tempo spread offense, and teams have caught on to it.
By the numbers, no Nick Saban Coached team was statistically better than LSU’s 2019 team. Nick Saban only has 1 undefeated team since he’s been at Alabama.
Do you know what LSU & Alabama’s win/loss record over the last 20 regular season games against each other is ?? LOL !!! It’s 10-10 against each other.
They haven’t been there before ?? Just how little do you know. 1908, 1935, 1936, 1958, 1959, 1962, 1967, 2003, 2007, 2011 & 2019. Do you know what those numbers mean ? I’m gonna say no, therefore I’ll tell you. That’s of the years that at least one major awarding service of the time recognized LSU as their mythical FBS football national champions. The NCAA doesn’t award or recognize an NCAA national champion in college football at the FBS level. Numerous different outside sports media sources award & recognize their own individual mythical FBS football national championship each season. Those 11 mythical FBS football national championship seasons that LSU could claim, are all based off of the very same exact awarding services that Alabama has used to come up with the claim of 17 mythical FBS football championship seasons, with every single one of them being more legit than Alabama’s claim of 1941. Alabama’s claim of 1941 is considered as being the single most laughable claim of a mythical FBS football national championship season by a school in the entire history of the sport. Oh & btw, that one from 1908 was the very first time that a southern football playing school was ever awarded a mythical national championship in college football, The National Championship Foundation was the awarding service that recognized LSU as their mythical college football national champions for the 1908 season. Number of awarded mythical FBS football national championships awarded to schools over the last 20 years, both claimed & unclaimed. Alabama - 5 2009, 2011, 2012, 2015 & 2017 LSU - 4 2003, 2007, 2011 & 2019 No other school has more than 2 mythical FBS football national championships over the last 20 years. LSU was the very first school to be awarded 2 BCS mythical FBS football national championships. LSU has even won more games over the last 20 years than what Alabama has, alone with having the overall 4th highest winning percentage in FBS football since the 2000 season. That’s right, higher than Alabama’s, higher than the 4 or 5 year flash in the pan Clemson and everybody else not named Ohio St., Oklahoma & Boise St. They also just happen to be tied with Alabama at 10-10 over the last 20 regular season games against each other. Now let’s move on to another set of numbers. 44 vs 10 Do you have any idea what those numbers mean ?? Again, I’m say that you don’t. Well since a so-called national championship in college football at the FBS level is only a sports media based mythical championship, that’s the real number of NCAA awarded & recognized NCAA national championships that LSU & Alabama have to their credit. Now I don’t think that I even need to you as for as what number goes with what school, now do I ?? LOL !!! But I’m gonna do it anyway. Yes, LSU is the SEC’s all-time leader with 44 NCAA awarded & recognized national championships. Alabama on the other hand is marred in an 8th place tie in the SEC with Kentucky, as both schools only have 10 NCAA awarded & recognized NCAA national championships across all sports for the entire history of their schools. Yet you claim that LSU has never been there before LOL !!!, right ?? The actual truth is the fact that if LSU were to quit playing sports altogether starting today, and going by the rate that Alabama wins real NCAA awarded & recognized NCAA national championships. Well than it should only take Alabama somewheres around 250 to 300 years to match LSU’s total number of real NCAA awarded & recognized national championships. LOL !!! I bet Alabama wishes that they could never be there like that, right ??? The ole saying of dumb as a box of rocks is even to good to bestow upon you !!!!
It worked out to Alabama having to put 8 and sometimes even 9 in the box to stop him, but guess what ??? Alabama won’t be so lucky by only having to defend the middle of the field between the hashmarks anymore. Nope, Alabama is gonna have to defend the whole field now. Yep, Alabama is gonna have to take those little extra heavy DL & LB’s, but a step or two slower players because of it, have to go out there and play 1 on 1 in space against some of the very best skill position players in the country. This isn’t a good matchup for Alabama’s defense. LSU with the way their defense is built makes for a lot harder matchup for a team like Clemson.
C’mon now, let’s don't get carried away with it. That game honestly could’ve very easily been real bad for Auburn. That 3 point difference in the score wasn’t a true indication of the game. Auburn got doubled up on yardage, with the bulk of Auburn’s entire offensive output in the game came on just 2 plays in the game. LSU bypassed 2 chip shot FG’s, in favor of going for it on 4th down, they missed an extra point. LSU had a turnover at the goal line going in for a TD. Auburn’s first FG drive was aided 3 different times by LSU defensive penalties on 3rd downs that Auburn didn’t convert. LSU dropped several INT’s that were in their hands. LSU had one WR knock a sure TD pass away from another LSU WR. Burrow missed on 2 more passes that would’ve been TD’s on inside slants. Auburn was lucky as hell that they didn’t get 50 or 60 hung on them in that game. Outside of the late 4th quarter TD drive Auburn had, they got completely shut down by LSU’s defense in the 2nd half. That was by far the worst game that LSU has played this season. It was raining off & on, the field was in bad shape because of all of the rain the field had on for a couple of days straight leading up to the game. LSU had penalty after penalty in the game to the tone of 115 yards, yet even with all of that. LSU still put over 500 yards of offense on a top 10 ranked Auburn team. Burrow was 32 of 42, 320 something yards, 1 TD & 1 INT. Burrow also had 40 something yards rushing & 1 rushing TD. LSU left a lot of points out on the field in that game, and I mean a lot. That game could’ve been real ugly for Auburn, real quick. In my opinion, LSU was never in danger of losing that game.
People don’t act like a bunch of dumbasses. Everybody and their brother knew that LSU was gonna move to #1 if they beat Auburn. I mean all of the AP voters were saying all week that if LSU beat Auburn they were gonna move LSU to #1 regardless of what any other top 5 ranked team did this week, their resume justified the move. I also know for fact that 99% of LSU fans didn’t won’t to be ranked ahead of Alabama going into the Nov. 9th game between the 2 teams. Simply because they didn’t won’t the #1 ranking gave to them, they wanted to take the #1 ranking from Alabama on the field Nov. 9th.
Every single one of y’all are wrong. It doesn’t have to be a helmet to helmet hit for it to be targeting. “ANY FORCIBLE CONTACT TO THE HEAD & NECK AREA OF A DEFENSELESS PLAYER IS DEFINED AS TARGETING”. Naturally, leading with the crown of your helmet or launching yourself are the easy ones to pick out, but like I’ve said, those aren’t the only one’s that’s considered by rule as being targeting. Regardless of what the ex- official said during the game, that was 100 % targeting on Joe Burrow. Burrow’s arms were pinned to his side by the initial defensive player, which in turn left Burrow’s upper body total unprotected, without him having a means to protect his upperbody. The 2nd Auburn defensive player came in and clearly initiated contact to the head & neck area of a defenseless Joe Burrow. Although the initial contact was with his shoulder, it was still to the head & neck area of a defenseless player. Per NCAA rule, that was in fact forcible contact to the head & neck area of a defenseless player, and should’ve been called as such. This is a very misinterpreted rule by all parties that’s in serious need of major language changes to help simplify & clarify as to just exactly what truly is or isn’t targeting. Simply because per NCAA rule, that hit was in fact targeting and should’ve been called. To many people are lost to the fact that it can be any part of a player’s body to the head & neck area of a defenseless player, the leading with the crown of your head and or launching yourself to the head & neck area of a player part holds true whether it is or isn’t a defenseless player or not.
Actually the road team has had the advantage in the LSU & Alabama rivalry over the last 40 years or so. LSU’s offense will also be by far the best offense that Alabama has played against as well. It’s no secret, it’s been said for several years now that Alabama’s worst nightmare is LSU with an up tempo spread offense.
A lot of the LSU defensive backups didn’t even play in that game. LOL !!! LSU literally having WR’s playing DB in that game doesn’t fall in line with most of them being former starters. LOL !!! ZERO WR’s played DB for LSU in any game last year outside of the UCF game. UCF was given some garbage time game shortening late 4th quarter points in that game by LSU. LSU played a soft zone in the majority of the 4th quarter to make UCF burn the clock, hence shortening a game that they were in total control of. Those garbage time points made the score look better than what the actual game remotely was. UCF was totally man handled by LSU in that game, go look at the stats for that game. That game honestly looked like a group of 5 team against an elite power 5 team. UCF was completely doubled up in yardage in that game and that was including the late game garbage yardage that LSU gave UCF, alone with having WR’s playing DB. Oh & btw, Florida’s AD isn’t allowed to partake in any conversation that involves the University of Florida when it comes to the selection committee.
