The 2011 Season Will Bring Change - LSU Will Lose
Posted by Bama Mike on Thursday January 05 2012 @ 05:14PM CST
[ 2011 Season ]
This last game of the season will be a bittersweet ending to this good, bad, and ugly 2011 football season. Harvey Updike defined the ugly, Penn State and Ohio State the bad and a rematch for the National Championship the good. But you could put those adjectives to a lot of other events that happened in 2011 and if you are not an Alabama fan you might reverse good and ugly. The really bad is that the season is almost over and we will have to wait till September 1 2012 to begin a new season and we lost Shane. For the really good refer to the end of this article.

This season will stimulate talk about a playoff system and I predict will result in real changes in the BCS. The SEC once again will have a team that wins the national championship and this year that has been determined before the actual final game. Only the fact that an SEC team will also lose the national championship game gives some solace in their misery (not really). The other conferences are in disarray and some even falling apart while the SEC is growing and putting an extra stamp on its dominance. Six national champions in a row from the same conference is not something that those outside of this league want to grow to 7 or 8 or more. So this will lead the powers to be to develop a playoff system. That along with the fact that all the other bowl games have become superfluous in that they no longer have any meaning. They are all equally out of any place in a championship discussion and that is the only thing that really matters. Before the Crystal Ball of the BCS the different polls and bowls meant something and kept alive more than two teams hopes (especially those of the fans) of claiming a championship. Alabama benefited from that former non-system to be able to claim 5 of its 13 national championships. That no longer exists and along with the excessive addition of bowl games it is resulting in most bowls becoming money losing propositions and a good excuse to fall asleep on the couch. That is why I predict an 8 team playoff system that would fill 7 stadiums during the playoffs. This would bring back what is needed to keep the interest high among college football fans right up until the final game. Then the best bowls could be sprinkled in among the playoff games as warm-up games before the main event. ESPN and CBS should be licking their chops over that type of scenario.

Enough said about that. Some space here needs to be dedicated to the second Game of the Century. This will be a rematch of the 2 best teams in the nation and anybody that argues otherwise is an idiot. If there were a new expansion team in the NFL they could fill their first team roster with members from these two teams and they would immediately be competitive.

It will be a great game but this time there will be a different outcome. Alabama no longer has a quarterback that is inexperienced. He has a full year behind him and the offensive coaches have had 6 weeks to fine tune him to be able to live completely up to his potential. AJ will look the best he has all year with the weapons he has to deploy with Trent, Marquis, Brad, Darius and all the others. That along with a defense that will allow no touchdowns from LSU will deliver a 14th National Championship to the Tide.
