At least you will have earned your spot in the title game on the field this year. I commend you on that.

I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
When Mettenberger plays like he did last night, I truly believe LSU is the second best team in the country. I think LSU would have beaten Oregon last night. The question is if Mettenberger can consistently play like that, or if he was just super hyped up for the biggest game of his life. Good game LSU, you guys outplayed us but we outcoached yall and wanted it more at the end.
No it is pretty much dead on. LSU easily won most of the 2nd Half. Both Coaches made questionable calls. LSU got a few lucky bounces (neither fumble was due to a hit and bounced to the LSU guy). Bama won in the trenches (6.6 vs 2.8 ypc) and AJ had all day to throw. AJ played bad and Mett played his best game (until the last drives for each when it counted.
It was 14-3 at the half. K? Can't ignore that. We won the first half, you won the second half, we won the game. Your "dominant" performance will make you better down the road in the Cotton Bowl. G'night.
Now I know how LSU fans felt in November last year. I'ts too bad you guys won't get a second chance though.
This thread is why many dislike the Bama fan base.
LSU played great and very poorly at times.
I just watched the game again...LSU should have won the game.
The Yeldon fumble was huge but so was the onside kick play ...and Mccarron missed some open guys...
LSU lost when they got inside the Bama 30 4 times and got zero points...twice in the 4th....bazzar game ...LSU dominated according to the Stats...double in TOS...
Upsetting for LSU fans....
Better team? LSU had everything going in their favor...revenge, home field at night, bye week....and it still wasn't enough. Moral victories FTW lol I guess...
Mett can't possibly play better than he did last night....however, AJ played his worst game if the year. 2 turnovers to 0, etc, etc....
You know just as well as I do that getting past the 30 and scoring points on Bama is next to impossible. We don't concede points and you have to earn them. You know this because LSU's D is the same way. Driving in the open field is one thing. Scoring on Bamas D with their backs pressed against a wall is another.
It's obvious Mett was in the zone last night and LSUs wrs were playing lights out. That gets a little harder in the red zone. Bamas DBS were playing great coverage even getting their hands on the ball several times yet the Mett was putting the ball in the perfect spot every time. He was playing out of his mind. Yet Bama still won. AJ had his own magic in his back pocket. And you can't separate coaching decisions from the play onthe field. Les is just as much a part of the game plan and team as anyone. His bone headed calls as a coach are part of the game plan. If you blame it on Les you're still saying LSU. You can't separate Les from the players on the field.

I think the OP's post is appalling and apologize on behalf of him and good Alabama fans everywhere.
I'll tell you what IS typical, and that's us winning in the toughest place to play in college sports - Death Valley - where I believe we're 25-9-2 (.722) all-time and 17-4-1 since 1970. Death Valley, where dreams do come true.
It's gonna sting a little while. Don't rub it.
Alabama had elite play from the rbs in this game, averaging around 7 per carry. The problem is we didn't commit to it enough. LSU certainly never proved they could stop it.
Just face reality bammers. LSU dominated the entire game and you were extremely lucky to win. You should be used to having luck on your on side after backing into the championship game last year without winning the western division
for you is becoming a daily thing.
So, LSU dominated the 1st half but managed to be trailing 14-3? Wow...Barners all across the state are heartbroken after living vicariously through LSU. What a pitiful existence that must be.
How could they dominate the entire game when they were losing 14-3 at the Half? Really you barners are so sad desperately trying to live vicariously through other teams because yours sucks so bad.
He's saying y'all even suck at living through others, tranny25!
Are you kidding? Les Miles and his stupid decisions played a huge part in that 14-3 deficit. You are in field goal range, but you attempt a fake and get stopped short. You then attempt a 55 yard field goal and miss. This gives Alabama the ball at their own 40 yard line. There was only around a minute remaining in the first half. If you punt Alabama inside their own 20 yard line, they likely never score a 2nd touchdown in the first half

As an LSU fan here's my take. LSU outplayed Bama and by a pretty wide margin but Bama is the better team. We had a hot night, fueled by fierce motivation. That was the type of game our team is capable of having every week but we aren't consistent enough this year to sustain it. Bama does sustain consistency and that's why they're better. A lot of the reasoning behind Bama's B game was because of LSU. It was the 1st time this year that another team could stand toe to toe with Bama and they folded a bit but had enough resolve to take advantage of the opportunities we gave them to win the game. It's what good teams do. It was a great game and I'm proud of the way both teams played. I don't care what anyone says about another team, on most Saturdays the 2 teams on the field Saturday night in Baton Rouge would beat anyone else. They're the 2 best programs in college football at the current time. When either plays well no one is beating Bama or LSU except the other. It's not gonna stop anytime soon either. Both programs are loaded for the future and continue to add major, major talent. Bama could be scary, scary good next year if most of the studs return, particularly McCarron.
How about 2 fumbles when it appeared Alabama was about to seize total control of the game? And neither was "forced"...just mishandled by Alabama. The first fumble came at a very bad time as Alabama was up 7-3 and would have had it at midfield after a 3 and out following a methodical TD drive. GTFO Barner.
