Mock 12 Team College Football Playoff
My stupid work browser wouldn't play the vid. Can I get a summary?
Robert Smith shockingly picks LSU to beat A&M, Notre Dame, and FSU to meet ALA in a mock playoff final. Of course he gives the Gumps the standard "ESPN" rubber stamp win.
If Louisiana agrees to lose the bowls we're screwed.
The Sugar Bowl (History of)
If the game is officiated by SEC refs (aka: Zebra Gumps) then he's correct...just not for the right reason.
If the game is offictaed by non-SEC refs...we're looking at another title.
Keep in mind what got Alabama to the title game this season. A weak SEC East schedule provided by the SEC HQ in Gumpville, AL and a combined three penalties against LSU & Georgia thanks to the Gumpville refs.
Alabama has always had the "SEC referee in my pocket" advantage since 1965 when LSU Head Coach Charlie Mac decided to face Paul Bryant each year. Baffling is that LSU is tolerant for decades now.
Did anyone catch how smith said atm beat us the first time but we would get them in the rematch.
And don't forget that 72 yard drive in 43 seconds. That helped too.
No offense Tusk, but Alabama were lucky in that game, VERY lucky. LSU exposed their weaknesses, but ultimately gave up on defense towards the end. If you looked at stats alone, LSU easily won that game. I will however give credit to McCaron who, under pressure, proved he can pull it all together. That guy is a good QB, and I'm sure Tide fans are very happy that he is staying for his senior season.
Anyway, back on topic... this theoretical 12-team playoff I think was tongue-in-cheek. I just thought it was kinda flattering that our Tigers were picked to go that far when in all honesty, I just don't think they would have unless the defense were back to the LSU Defense we all know and love. The last few games of the season were just not quite at that level. But seeing the excellent improvement on offense gives me reason to get excited for next season.
I caught that. What a tool.
