BCS Declares LSU Champs

A spokesman for the Bowl Championship Series presented LSU coach Two-Loss Miles the BCS coaches trophy on Sunday afternoon.

"Winning or losing does not matter. What does matter is who we think is the best team in the country, and that's LSU," said BCS PR rep Brian Gooberson. "We are giving both Ohio State and LSU the option on if they want to play. I hope they do, because it would be fun to see. But the outcome will have no bearing on the championship at all."

Miles gladly claimed the trophy and said, "Hey, we earned it. Well, not really, but I'll still take it. This will allow me to get more money from Michigan."

Jerks. All kidding aside, everyone says LSU should be in the championship game on the basis of their tough schedule. Um, has anyone actually looked at their schedule this year?

It sucked ass.

Its five road games (one less road game than most of the other deserving BCS teams this year) included joke games against a still underwater Tulane, a 6-6 Alabama team, and two schools from Mississippi that may or may not exist. Their hardest road game was No. 17 Kentucky.

They lost that one.

Their biggest home win was Virginia Tech, in Week 2, when half of the Hokies team was still under suspicion of mass murder. Since when in college football does a win in Sept. 8 entitle you a free pass to the title game?

LSU didn’t beat any team ranked higher than No. 9. And the two times they were handed the No. 1 spot for no good reason, and all the country’s attention was on them, they immediately choked it away. Yeah, that's a great resume.

Though to give LSU some credit, their schedule wasn’t as soft as Ohio State ’s, whose biggest win was against the No. 23 team. Jesus, they might as well put the championship game on the NFL Network - no one is going to watch that snoozer.

(And Georgia, with four whole road games this year, has no business playing for the championship, either. Appalachian State would be favored against you.)

Hawaii, which ran the table, has an offense that’s puts up points, and actually showed some cojones by coming back and winning all their pressure-filled games at the end of the season, has a better resume than all these clown teams.

Oh yeah. Another school on the West Coast played six road games, including four against ranked teams, and two teams in the top seven. One of their losses came on the road against the country's then No. 5 team, when their starting QB was out injured.

They ended the season strong, won the hardest conference in the country, and two weeks ago snot-kicked the No. 7 team - on the road - by 20 points. They’d be favored by a touchdown over any other team in the BCS.

What’s that team again? I forget.

You didn't really think USC was going to make it did you?

The question is, who gets pummelled by the greater margin in their gift BCS Game: Ohio State or Kansas? And how is it that USC gets sloppy seconds with Illinois in the Rose Bowl instead of getting another BCS Conference Champ?! What a slap in the face. Now how are the Trojans supposed to get pumped up to play these scrubs?

I guess that's what happened when they played Stanford? heh

Honestly all this bitchin' by USC fans amuses me. Be glad that Dixon got hurt and you got a shot to go to the BCS

Go Tigers.

USC would be in the Rose Bowl if Dixon was healthy because Oregon would have been in the BCS Championship Game and the Rose Bowl would have taken USC as an at-large. The Rose Bowl had a choice between Missouri and Illinois, but chose Illinois to keep up the Pac-10 vs. Big Ten rivalry. Something that will make us a lot of money when the Trojans win big.

Great, so Rose Bowl was the best they were supposed to do anyway. Why all the crying?

Wow...groundbreaking gambling tips too!

The problem is, LSU didn't earn it. If this was about putting the best team in the title game, then USC would be there.

But Pete Carroll didn't whine like a female dog when his team lost twice.

What a slap in the face to the Trojans.

LOL.

USC lost to Stanford. Period. And I wasn't too impressed with how they dispatched UCLA.

Enjoy the roses.

Go Tigers

USC didn't take care of business when they had the chance. They should be happy to have the opportunity to kick Illinois back to the flatlands where they belong.

Ohio State will treat LSU like Matt Leinart treats bubble-headed, bubble-breasted Scottsdale blondes. There's not a more overrated team in the country than LSU, nor a more overrated conference than the SEC. LSU is Wisconsin without that whole going to class thing. Outside of the two Mississippi schools, the SEC is a league full of 6-6 teams. Florida will beat the crap out of Michigan though, which will all the SEC "graduates" will use to proclaim their superiority, ignoring the abuse that teams like Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Alabama will take.

This west coast homerism is laughable.

Have you seen USC's schedule?? They only beat 2 teams with winning records! And one of them was a pathetic 7-5 Oregon State team.

You're mistaken. There is no homerism going on here.

NFL Adam said...

Thanks, Bain. I don't even like USC. I'm just being objective.

LSU and Georgia would finish 6th and 7th in the Pac10.

Feel free to play some games where they didn't keep slaves, Dawgs.
