Yup if Boise St had a  chance when not this year but year before i think they would have won it all or atleast been in a championship game in a playoffs. Titus Young,Kellen Moore and all the studs they had. That team was no joke

Boise St! Im telling you. Everyone say Boise plays a soft schedule but they can play with anybody.

Yes. I very much agree. Didn't mean to leave the Broncos out, but they can play with anyone and the diffence betweeN them and OSU is they have a defense. It shouldn't matter what schedule you play. they can only beat the teams that are put in front of them and they have done that year in an year out. We really do need a playoff system. I kept hearing from ESPN how the BCS worked. WELL NO IT DIDN'T!!!

12nationalchampionships

respectfully, bama's defense would outscore either of those teams offenses. Defenses win championships it has been proven over and over and over again.

but i feel that OSU or stanford would have had a better chance than LSU. Alabama would have been in a much tougher fight vs those two, while I feel that LSU would have at least lost to OSU. If Bama had beaten LSU in the first one, would LSU have deserved to be in this game with a high school caliber QB? I don't think so. Defense may win championships but offense sells tickets and those people at the game got robbed. just like all of us did for having to watch it. NO OFFENSE TO BAMA FANS OUT THERE. Congrats. 

Jeff- with all due respect, do you know how much pressure a defense sporting a 1 ton line and an unit average 40yd under 4.9. Bama doesn't need a wild offense, again, look at lsu's season opener with half of their offense out of the game on suspension. We can go in the back yard and play flag football. Shove it up my arse a few times and plant me in the earth and I'm gonna think twice about my pass protection scheme and show my vunerabilities on the run.

Alabama and lsu each would have scored like 49 points against osu.  These seethe 2 elite defensive units in football.  All osu had to do was put an Iowa state win in the books, but they could not get a stop against that garbage.  How can bcs put a team with an Ot loss to Iowa state in over a team with an Ot loss to the #1?

I would have pity if they didn't control their own destiny and blow it.  Like the auburn case A few years ago or Boise/tcu 2 yrs ago

i think you can look at this game both ways. a half glass full aproach would apreciate that this was one of the greatest defensive performances one has ever seen in a bowl game. think about it. bama held the number1 team in the country in their own territory for 90% of the game. wether you think different teams should be there or not, thats prety impressive. with that being said i would be happy if they seriously looked at implementing a playoff system

Couldn't agree more, Jeff.

2013 NFL Regular Season 2-0, + 2 Units

This town won't appreciate Tony Romo until he's gone and the Cowboys are back playing with the Quincy Carters and Chad Hutchinsons of this world. Remember those days?

You don't appreciate a quality quarterback until you don't have one. Few teams have the good fortune of making the transition from a Peyton Manning to Andrew Luck as the Colts are prepared to do. When Romo is done, it may be 5-10-15 years before the Cowboys find another quarterback of his ability.

Even "IF" you have a Playoff.......Bama & LSU would of still played in the final game & you would have got the same result......The BCS got it right!

So Jeff, by this logic (Like I said i feel OSU and Stanford both got snubbed because of their defense and that is not fair Those teams played a much better bowl game than this (41-38). I don't feel that either one of tonight's teams would be able to outscore Stanford or OSU. Really sad.) the UW/Baylor bowl game was one of the best of all time? Did you see what LSU did to WVU and Oregon (both BCS bowl winners) ? They would've scored at will on OSU or Stanford.. and we all saw how dominant Bama can be..

No, OSU didn't deserve a chance because they lost as 28pt underdogs to IOWA STATE.. All they had to do was take care of business and they would've played last night..

I've never seen such knee jerk reactions in my entire life.. Give the defenses and coaching some credit here..

oh yeah, it's time for some sort of playoff system though.. this year was a perfect example
