I was one of the first to write that Alabama and LSU should play in the BCS Championship Game in January. The first time I mentioned it was way back in February on my own website. FEBRUARY!!!! There is also one from August that I posted on the great Alabama-Tennessee website 3sib.com. Here's the proof:
This post is not intended to sound like a Phil Steele magazine where I talk about how I predicted all things correctly, but it is what is.
Or is it?
Now that everyone is all about jumping on the "Alabama and LSU could play again in January" bandwagon, I've decided to change my tune and step out on another limb.
Alabama will not only beat LSU in Tuscaloosa on November 5th. They will destroy them. Is it crazy to believe this? Of course not. Allow me to give you the formula.
Here are the ingredients. For LSU fans, you will need a 1/2 cup of "whine." Ha. See that? See what I did? I said whine, but it was like wine. Homophones. No, seriously. Stop laughing. It's an actual grammatical term. Look it up.
INGREDIENTS FOR 'BAMA WHIPPIN' OF LSU
-1/2 of the 2010 Iron Bowl -- Remove Mark Ingram fumble, Trent Richardson dropped pass as he was about to walk in the end zone, Greg McElroy's fumble before halftime, and Mark Barron's one pectoral that allowed Cam Newton to complete that fair catch punt he called a pass for a touchdown on the first drive of the second half. Do not leave any portion of the second half or the recipe will be destroyed.
-1 Entire 2009 SEC Championship Game -- Throw it all in the pot. It's what adds the full flavor to the recipe. Although many of the players from this game are no longer in Tuscaloosa, it matters not. Saban loves to stew on one game and promise himself and the world that he will not repeat a mistake ever again. One game at a time? K. Saban let the 2008 SEC Championship Game marinate for 364 days and when it came out of the oven, it was a 32-13 masterpiece. The 2008 SEC Championship Game versus Florida became Saban's purpose for living.
By mixing those ingredients into the pot, the 'Tide will guarantee itself victory. Not only victory, but a blowout.
The 2010 LSU game and 2010 Iron Bowl has given Saban extra flavor to stew in this offseason and now. I'll say it again. When Saban says, "Getting better every day," he really means, "We are preparing everyday for November 5th versus LSU because we are the best team in the country and we can do things like that, aight."
Any predictions of an Alabama-LSU BCS Championship Game -- to be played sometime between Christmas and the Daytona 500 -- will not include LSU. It will be Alabama and Wisconsin.
Because Alabama will beat LSU 38-16. It will never be close. Alabama will score touchdowns instead of fumbling. They will score touchdowns instead of dropping the easiest pass in the history of American or European Futbol. They score touchdowns instead of getting sacked and fumbling.
It should have been at least 35-7 at the half of the 2010 Iron Bowl. "Should have been" will become "it happened" on November 5th in Tuscaloosa as Alabama takes a 31-3 lead to the half.
Am I looking ahead? Yeah. Am I overlooking James Franklin, Houston Nutt, and Orange Pants McGhee? Absolutely.
Am I saying the Alabama-LSU game will not even be close? Mmm-hmmm.
The only positive aspect of Les Miles' trip to Tuscaloosa will be the fancy box of Russell Stover Bermuda 419 Grass presented to him by Nick Saban at midfield before kickoff.
As a matter of fact, Alabama is probably just better off looking ahead to Auburn week.
Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves.Back to the Alabama Crimson Tide Newsfeed
