BCS = Boring Championship Series

Well, if you were one of the many who got sucked into the hype of the HUGE BCS National Championship rematch between LSU and Alabama, you were no doubt trying very hard to stay awake during the course of the game.  These two teams met in the regular season, with LSU winning a low-scoring defensive battle, 9-6 in OT.  So I guess I could understand how there would be some excitement in this much-ballyhooed rematch between the top two ranked teams.

However,  it looked as if only one team showed up ready to play, and let's just say it wasn't the home team.  The LSU Tigers were outclassed on both sides of the football as the Crimson Tide of Alabama simply manhandled the #1 ranked Tigers.  It was ugly... and boring.  Ugh. Simply painful to watch. You hoped to have seen some kind of offense being generated by both teams.  However, it was the defenses who controlled the flow of the game and unfortunately, the flow was too slow for most folks as it played out into a snoozefest. And at the end of the night, Alabama showed everyone that they were the best team in the land, regardless of how ugly the game was.  So congrats to the Crimson Tide, the National Champions of College Football.  (photo courtesy of AJC)
