Neither LSU or Alabama possess a ’76 Steel Curtain or ’61 Crimson Tide -type defense.
Oh sure, they’re good, don’t get me wrong. But mostly what both their offenses are is simply underwhelming. Pure mediocrity.
Which makes the game…well, let me put it this way.
- Further…if Alabama’s field goal kickers should “out duel” LSU’s field goal kickers? That just makes the case for Oklahoma State as National Champion all the stronger, no ifs ands or buts. ↩
- Plus…Musburger? Really? Isn’t he in a retirement home somewhere? ↩
- This game is so bad that I may, just may, switch over to ESPN28 and watch the Cotton Bowl reprise. And what marketing genius thought up that one, I wonder? On the other hand…that game did have some offense. And…I bet K-State still loses. A win-win. ↩
