Um, are you LSU Tiger fans awake? Something happened today, more than the Tigers winning the SEC Conference championship game. That is, both the number 1 and 2 teams have lost. That puts Ohio State as the number 1 team in the nation.
Now here is where it gets muddy. Georgia is the next team down that list, that would put Georgia in the national title game against Ohio State. Not a bad fit, it would be interesting, but one problem, Georgia didn’t even play in their conference championship game. LSU and Tennessee did. Georgia has the same number of losses as LSU, but the Tigers have one extra win, beating the team that beat Georgia.
That puts Kansas as the number five ranked team in line for the National Championship, but again, here’s a team that didn’t win it’s conference title. They didn’t even play in their conference championship. Why should they be in there?
Next on the list? Virginia Tech. You remember them don’t you? That’s the team the Tigers thumped 48-7 at the beginning of the season. Which brings us to the next team on the list, the LSU Tigers, champions of the best conference of college football.
Will they be in the National title game? We’ll find out soon enough, but if the team that had to lose two games in triple overtime would not have been so determined to beat their self, who knows what would have been. Unlike the other two loss teams, LSU was never a team that was beaten. Well, let me put it another way, the only team that beat LSU this year, was LSU.
The question is, will the only team who beat the best team in the nation, not once, but twice, have a shot at the national title?
