Even with an Alabama Loss, All won't be Lost http://www.usatoday.com/story/gameon/2012/11/03/sec-college-football-alabama-lsu-pregame/1679459/ It talks about how #1 Bama can get right back into the BCS, even with a loss, like last year, etc. How Mike Slive would prefer a Bama win, to preserve the SEC streak, etc. Am I missing the part where Don Wolken talks about the slightest of possibilities, that LSU might possibly have had a future in the BCS National Championship, IF we had won the the game? We were #5 (7-1) that week, Bama was #1 (8-0), we had 1 loss. There were 4 teams ahead of us, Bama, Notre Dame, KSU & Oregon. Afterall, we would have just beaten the #1 team, knocking Bama presumably out, before they screamed for a Mulligan, and we already had a much stronger strength of schedule. If I recall, Bama had a Loss this year to A&M, after this article was written. I understand Bama was undefeated when they came to LSU, but needed several teams to lose to back into the game yet again this year, as the article mentions. Except for them losing to a different team than LSU. Again, maybe I'm missing it, but there doesn't appear to be much talk of LSU at all here, win or lose. Dunno, just strikes me as odd to reassure, I assume Bama fans, that if they lost everything would just work out for them. No conspiracy stuff, maybe I'm misreading or not understanding the article's intent. It's as if LSU didn't exist or really matter..
