Alabama Beats LSU In BCS Championship Game Crimson Tide Is The Best After BCS Rout

Alabama Beats LSU In BCS Championship Game Crimson Tide Is The Best After BCS Rout: As required, Alabama’s players whooped it up amid the confetti and fireworks, yet there was something muted about this championship celebration.

Turns out, these guys knew the ending to the sequel before they even got to the Big Easy.

For two months, the Crimson Tide stewed over its first meeting with top-ranked LSU. By the time the team touched down in New Orleans, there was little doubt in anyone’s mind about the outcome. Not just win, but dominate.

Boy, did they ever.

With a smothering display of old-school football, No. 2 Alabama blew out the Tigers 21-0 in the BCS championship game Monday night, celebrated a bit and headed back to Tuscaloosa with its second national title in three years. Read More…

Like The Honey Badger LSU’s Tyrann Mathieu Doesn’t Back Down

Like The Honey Badger LSU’s Tyrann Mathieu Doesn’t Back Down: “The honey part,” Mathieu said Thursday at a news conference in advance of Monday night’s Bowl Championship Series title game against Alabama.

Not much about his life had been sweet. In fact, a bitter residue lingered through a tough upbringing that took place not far from where LSU will try to win its third BCS crown since 2003.

Mathieu was cast off by his mother and raised by his grandfather before he died when Tyrann was 5. Tyrann’s father is serving a life sentence for murder at Louisiana State Penitentiary. Read More…

Alabama Blanks LSU for BCS Title

Alabama Blanks LSU for BCS Title: Nick Saban being Nick Saban wasn’t about to lavish his Alabama team with excessive praise after a 21-0 win over LSU in the Bowl Championship Series title game on Monday night.

His defense held LSU to just 92 yards and zero points, the first shutout in the BCS’s 14-year, 62-game history. LSU crossed midfield just once, with 7:58 remaining in the game.

However when Saban was asked whether he would call it “domination,” he said, “No. No. I’m sure when we watch the film these guys know we always have a good, bad and ugly reel. I can always find something ugly to talk about.” Read More…

Alabama Saban win BCS title and rule college football again

Alabama Saban win BCS title and rule college football again: Far removed probation, far removed from the cartoon that Alabama football had mutated into during the Mike DuBose-Dennis Franchione-Mike Price (“Roll Tide!” quoth he to the stripper)-Mike Shula eras, far removed from the humbling of Nick Saban’s first season in Tuscaloosa, the Crimson Tide rule college football once again.

It was painful for LSU Monday night. For the rest of us, it was just convincing.

Alabama smacked LSU 21-0 in the BCS championship game at the Superdome, the first shutout in 14 BCS title matches. This makes two national titles in three seasons for the Tide. It’s three BCS titles for Saban (the first coming at LSU in 2003). Read More…
