I will say that the Defenses played very well yes. that is not my dispute here, but what if LSU had lost the first matchup, would they have deserved a rematch? I don't think so. that's were i feel the system is wrong. LSU was only in this game cause they beat Bama earlier and if there was a playoff I don't feel that LSU would have been in the final game. Great defense yes but also with a very weak QB and offense overall.They were only able to score most of their points this year, cause their defense set them up with easy short fields. Look what happens when this team they have to drive the whole field. they couldn't do it. I'm really glad Bama did win, because I would hate to see a team with such piss poor offense be our national champs.
Having said that the biggest point of this rant was all the media and experts talk PRIOR to OSU losing to iowa State. All I heard before the game was that even if OSU did make it to the national title game they didn't deserve to be there based on their defense and that wasn't a fair statement by the media. It goes both ways. Why just pick on the team with poor defense and praise a team with a shitty offense. That's were I was coming form with this.
Also with respect to you runner91 not sure sure if either of these offense would have put up 49 points on OSU. Stanford put up just 38 on them. OSU had some time to prepare and their defense played much better. Bama might have still won but I feel it would have been much closer and they WOULD NOT have shut out OSU. Just my thoughts guys. we need a playoff that's for sure. Sorry if I ruffled an feathers. I also ask you again. If LSU had lost the first meeting would they have deserved a rematch? I don't think so.
