    we beat every one of those teams... so that is why they all got worse? ha ha

    The difference in first half and second half is enormous

    as Calloway said -difference is we didn’t understand his way is better

    Not arguing that Bama should not be #4 any way. Maybe they should be # 4 now. I am just pointing out the lunacy of the system. IMO the old BCS system was much better. When Bama played LSU in 2011 the two teams were definitely the two best teams in the country.

    What’s really changed from the old method is television makes more money, the NCAA office gets a cut of the money and the overexploited kids play an extra game, and the schools get a smaller share of the profits though there might be more money.

    That would be interesting. You brought something into the scenario before I did. U of Tx was in the scenario being discussed. You did that for a reason.

    You are correct. It was intended as a funny jab, because you talked about Bama not scheduling opponents like Texas, when it turns out multiple Bama opponents in the years you mentioned were better than Texas ended up being.

    Yes, but this is a different year and a different offense. IMO AL cannot stop our offense with the D players you have this year. It remains to be seen if we play who will win, but it will not be 2011 again where LSU had no offense.

    Hahahahaha

    You claimed, before the game, that LSU would blow out Bama in the championship game. Then they didn’t even sniff the opposite 49 yard line.

    So pardon me if it’s a little difficult to take you seriously.

    Good you say you introduced TX as a light jab I started the other one as sort of a jab back.

    I never claimed that, you know it, and everybody knows it. But I did say I thought LSU would win. I think if we play again LSU will win, but not necessarily a blowout. If you don’t think this is different situation from 2011 you are the one who can’t be taken seriously.

    Not at all. I never said we would crush AL. I said we would probably beat them. You really need help. We won 9-6 regular season. No way I said anything about crushing AL. You need to check around with your doctor friends and see who can take you on.

    Bill, your mouth wrote a check that LSU's sorry ass team could not cash. Yes, you did say that LSU would crush ALA for weeks leading up the game. And when it was all said and done, you ran and hid for at least 6 months so as not to be reminded about your prediction. Jordan Jefferson still sees Nick Gentry in his nightmares.

    I’m not sure if Jordan’s PTSD is any worse than Reuben Foster personally taking away Fournettes Heisman and clubbing him with it on his own grass. That was a nationally televised brutal ass whipping.
