    "The LSU Tigers aren’t the co-defending national champions. That’s what everyone keeps saying, but it's wrong. LSU is the defending national champion. Period. I thought USC was the best team at the end of last year, the whiny AP media thought USC was the best team, and CFN had USC ranked number one, but it doesn’t matter; the BCS is what counts. The AP poll is just a component in the overall formula. It's fine if USC calls itself the AP national champion, but LSU is the actual 2003 college football national champion."

    Wow, I can't believe Pete Fiutak said that. Didn't think he had it in him. I might actually have to get off the guys case a little bit.

    Sure they'll love it, now they can say they beat the undisputed NC from last year.

    CFN is very cool to LSU, they built the team up all last season, even after the FL loss.

    Anyway, what Fiutak writes is correct . . . not that any of us need to read it to know it.
