Nick Saban 


gotta hand it to him.  game-planned and kicked LSU's ***.  had the nuts to try the NFL, decided it wasnt for him.  Moved up and up in the college ranks, finally landed that big job, best competition day in and day out.  He wins.  If he wins, does not have to hope for the bcs forumulas or sports writers to get him to the big game.  I would say he is on the top of his profession.

Best competition? You mean Kent State, North Texas, Ga Southern, Ol Miss, MSU, Vandy and Tn?  Whoops forgot about Auburn who was more than lucky to beat USU and a 6-6 Florida team. They faced two teams with a pulse and lost to one of them.
Stopping the run is a lot easier when you face no passing attack.

Right -- wins over teams ranked 2, 5 (13th best passing team), 29, 31, 36t, and 36t don't mean anything.

Certainly not like the mighty donkeys, who beat the 20th ranked team, lost to the 13th ranked team at home and . . . that's it.

I'm not an Alabama fan, but I don't have any trouble recognizing the best team (and coach) in the country when I see it.

You're right weezie.  The SEC is crap.  There is no possible explanation out there why they've won the past six national titles.   That BCS rankings system--it's full of sh@!.

Did it every occur to you that the reason teams like Florida, Auburn, Tenessee, Ole Miss, etc. end up 6-6 is because they all have some very good players and coaches and they all have to play each other (not to mention having to play the top SEC teams, Alabama, LSU, Georgia, and Arkansas)

The only tough opponent BJC beat in 2011 was Georgia and I give them credit for being prepared and winning that game, but they had 8 months to get ready for it.  The only other really quality team they faced was TCU and they lost at home.  Comparing what BJC does to ANY SEC schedule is a joke.

Just admit the fact that Peterson isn't willing to test himself and see if he could cut it in a top conference.

What's interesting to me is how many assistant football coaches are leaving BSU because they do want to move up and get tested at a higher level.  And if TCP won't move up and take 'em, they'll do it alone.

Please leave the run of the mill Donk speak off this board.   

You guys can circle jerk the chit out of eachother with your pontifications and constant comparisons, and your six degrees of separation, Kevin Bacon bullchit victory claims on Idiot Country...

Don't phuckin come to the one fan base that already gets too much of your mouth breathing football claims, and spout off this mouth full of dog chit w/ fur.

Anyone with half a brain - which excludes yer entire fan base -  can see that Alabama w/ Saban - is a fine program in a much tougher conference.

PS - How does phucking USU make it in your post...  you phuckin donks...  too stupid.

Re: Nick Saban 


I didn't bring up Boise State in this Mythical National Championship stuff. I brought up the fact that Alabama didn't play more than two tough teams all year and lost to one of them. LSu couldn't score a td in 8 quarters against Alabama. Georgia Southern could. Twice. Plus a third on a kick return. LSU didn't get over the century mark for TOTAL yards. A D1aa team put up over 300 on Bama.
There is something intrinsically wrong with a system that crowns a mythical champion when they not only don't win their conference, they don't even win their division. North Dakota State versus Sam Houston made for a better game.
Saban didn't have to be a genious to win this game. All he had to do was stop the run because Jefferson is a poor qb. 92 yards for a complete game? Wow.

I dislike the BCS as much as anybody and hope things keep moving toward a playoff, but you are eek1 if you don't think the two best teams in the country were in the championship game this year.  The fact that they happened to be from the same division of the same conference didn't change the fact that they were the two best teams.

As I already pointed out above, contrary to what you keep saying, Alabama beat at least 5 quality teams this year, and their only loss was in OT to the number one team in the country.  The only other team with any claim whatsoever to a spot in the title game was Ok St, which had more quality wins BUT LOST TO IOWA STATE.  There's no way you can ignore that loss.

You can criticize LSU's offensive performance in the championship game all you want, but that's the same offense that scored 40 or more points on Oregon, West Virginia, Arkansas, Georgia, Auburn and Florida.  As for Georgia Southern v Alabama, I didn't watch the game, but a true triple option attack can give even a great defense problems, which looks like what happened.  There's no way you can say Georgia Southern's offense was better than LSU's based upon that one game.

Ga Tech runs a triple option. Ga Southern does not. BTY, North Dakota State beat Ga Southern 35-7.
We don't know which D1a team is the best in the country. It's all opinion. Who's to say Oregon wouldn't beat Bama? LSU beat them early in the season on turnovers.

Holy crap!  The ignorance . . . you has it.  eek1

From the espn.com write up of the Ga So v Alabama game:

"The Tide wasn't at its dominating best against Georgia Southern (9-2) and its well-executed triple option attack that bears little similarity to what Alabama is accustomed to.

. . .

That triple option of Georgia Southern, meanwhile, burned the nation's top defense for 302 rushing yards."


But, despite that, I guess you are correct that we can conclude that NDSt has a better defense than Alabama.  banghead

And Oregon?  RYFKM?  What claim did they have to be considered for the championship game?  TWO losses = none whatsoever.  Now, if there was a playoff, could they possibly have won it all?  Of course - but based on the results on the field this year, anybody who doesn't think Alabama proved it was the best team in the country either has an agenda or is just stoopid.

You lose all credibility when you post gametime rankings.

Bama beat three teams that ended the season with a winning record.

Read that again. *3* teams that finished the regular season above .500

Another mouth-breathing, window-licking, booger-eating donkey.  The rankings I posted are end-of-season rankings.  You accuse me of not using information that accurately reflects the strength of the teams that Alabama played and not only are you wrong about that, but then you turn around and do it by conveniently excluding the bowl results.  Well, which way do you want it?  Is it how good was the team when they played, or how good did the team turn out to be?

Even under your own criteria, you are still wrong.  Alabama beat Penn State (9-3 reg season, 9-4 after bowl), Arkansas (10-2 reg, 11-2), Auburn (7-5 reg, 8-5), and LSU (13-0 reg, 13-1).  That's four teams. Also, both Florida and Miss State ended up with winning records after they won their bowl games.
