So excited for this game!! Lets hope its a good defemsive battle for a change.

This was the first year i was into ncaa football. It was great. The more football the better.

Lsu is louisiana state university right? That means there home...man the crowd will be crazy tonight.

Correct, LSU is Louisiana State. I saw some pictures of the French Quarter last night, and it looked crazier than when the Saints won the super bowl.. I think it'll be higher scoring than the last one, and i'm calling a 17-14 Alabama win even though I don't really like either team.. The more you follow College ball the more you'll like it, it's great for scouting players for the upcoming drafts, and former alumni treat their schools like their family see these videos as examples :

heck, even Anthony Reddick who plays for the BC Lions threw up "The U" a few times this season http://www.procanes.com/files/category-anthony-reddick.html

My favorite quote to do with my 'Canes is "The U on the helmet stands for Unity, not University"

Now the question will be who will finish first in the final BCS rankings. Personally, I think Alabama should overtake LSU for that spot, but it isn't a given.

Also, in news that falls into the "yeah, no crap" category, Robert Griffin is apparently going to skip his senior season and declare for the NFL draft.

EDIT: never mind, just realized the rankings were posted, and in the AP poll, the Tide got 55 out of 60 votes, with LSU getting 1 and the other 4, surprisingly, going to Oklahoma State.

Wise words from Mr. Wetzel. Sadly, I doubt if changes are forthcoming.

It seems changes are coming.

WASHINGTON -- Playoffs and tournaments long have determined champions of every college sport from baseball to bowling.

The exception was major college football.

That ended Tuesday. Come 2014, the BCS is dead.

A committee of university presidents approved a plan for a four-team playoff put forward by commissioners of the top football conferences.

For years, the decision-makers had balked at any type of playoff because they said it would diminish the importance of the regular season. If only two teams had a chance to win a championship in the post-season, even one loss could be too many. That made for some very high stakes regular-season games. As recently as 2008, Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive proposed the type of plan adopted Tuesday, and it was quickly shot down.

Four years later, minds changed. The 12 university presidents stood shoulder to shoulder on a stage at a news conference in a posh hotel in the nation's capital and delivered the news.

"It's a great day for college football," BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock said. "As soon as the commissioners realized they could do this and protect the regular season, the light went on for everybody."

The move completes a six-month process for the commissioners, who have been working on a new way to determine a major college football champion after years of griping from fans. The latest configuration is certain to make even more money for the schools than the old system -- and not satisfy everyone.

"There were differences of views," said Virginia Tech President Charles Steger, who headed the BCS presidential oversight committee. "I think it would be a serious mistake to assume it was a rubber stamp."

Nebraska Chancellor Harvey Perlman was the most notable holdout. He had said he preferred the status quo or a tweak of the Bowl Championship Series. Perlman said the playoff still wouldn't be his first choice, but he was not going to stand in the way of progress.

"This is the package that was put forth and we will strongly support it," he said.

Instead of simply matching the nation's No. 1 and No. 2 teams in a title game after the regular season, the way the BCS has done since 1998, the new format will create a pair of national semifinals.

Many college football fans have been clamouring for a playoff for years, and the BCS has been a constant target for criticism. Lawmakers have railed against it. A political action committee was formed, dedicated to its destruction. The Justice Department looked into whether it broke antitrust laws. Even President Obama said he wanted a playoff.

Now it's a reality.

No. 1 will play No. 4, and No. 2 will play No. 3 on Dec. 31 and/or Jan. 1. The sites of those games will rotate among the four current BCS bowls -- Rose, Orange, Fiesta and Sugar -- and two more to be determined. One of the new sites will likely be wherever the newly formed bowl created by the SEC and Big 12 is played, Slive said.

Here's the link to the whole article: http://www.tsn.ca/ncaa/story/?id=399311

It's about time. This move was way overdue. Personally, I think they should have gone for a 6 or 8 team playoff, but 4 is a step in the right direction.

Costly win for the Buckeyes, Braxton Miller carted off the field then taken away in an ambulance. Get well Braxton.

Very sad that there isn't going to be an Alabama v Florida game this year. However, the way things are going that could well be the SEC Championship game. What a matchup that would be, though it may just be a precursor to a repeat of last year's uninspiring all-SEC National Championship. Personally I'd love to see Oregon get another crack at a Championship, so much fun to watch. Two weeks from now they'll be up against USC, do not miss that game if you like football. Big kudos to K-State too, for smoking WVU today. And I guess the Axe will be in Palo Alto this year; having gone to see a Cal game this year (a loss to Arizona State), I could've told you they weren't good enough to have a chance against the Cardinal.
