Alabama Loses!!!!

The 16-13 overtime loss to LSU ended the Crimson Tide's Rose Bowl dreams. Alabama could not get going on offense in the second half, and it cost them dearly. LSU outplayed the Tide in the second half, but three missed field goals by Chris Jackson left the game deadlocked at 10.

LSU last miss gave Alabama great field position at their 40 yard line with :47 left to play in the game. The Tide's comeback fell short inside the LSU 10 yard line and sent the game into overtime.

Bama scored first in overtime with a field goal, but LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell's touchdown pass won the game. LSU just needs to win out to play in the SEC championship game. A Georgia-LSU game is likely, which would be a rematch of the 2003 game won by the Bulldogs.

The BCS can quit crapping their pants, as USC and Texas are the only unbeatens left in college football. Not unless Fresno State pulls the unthinkable next week at the Coliseum or Texas A&M quits messing around and actually plays a game against the Longhorns the day after Thanksgiving.

I think that the BCS will really be in trouble if USC and/or Texas happens to lose one of their remaining games. I wouldn't be suprised to see Mack Brown start to complain again (he actually has a point this season) about not receiving a BCS bid (if they happen to lose in the Big 12 title game). I think the BCS will never work unless one but not both of the undefeated teams were from the Pac-10 or Big-10. It would be nice to see how the BCS would handle a bunch of 1 loss teams and how the Harris poll will effect the schools involved in the Rose Bowl. Obviously this is all moot if the Longhorns and Trojans continue to win.

I think the BCS really got lucky this year, as long as USC and Texas win out..otherwise it could get ugly..Miami and Penn State could both lose games and that would open the door for LSU or Virginia Tech....but if either Texas or USC lost...both teams belong in the Rose Bowl even with a loss but a one loss Miami, Penn State or LSU would all have strong cases if they won out....
