ISN’T this BCS situation disturbing? LSU-Alabama again for the national championship?

Don’t you find this whole BCS thing disturbing?  LSU and Alabama playing again for the national championship?  All Alabama probably has to do is beat Auburn (never an easy task) and they slide into the BCS championship.  Does this bother you?  It should.

I must disclose what many of our readers already know – I am a proud Alum of the Crimson Tide – Law 1983!  Roll Tide!  I am not pleased when ‘Bama loses any sort of game and the LSU game was no exception.  Just one field goal would have done it.

BUT, Alabama lost to LSU.  They should not have been moved down just one point to 3rd after that loss.  It seems to me that rematches should be discouraged.  Maybe a school like Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech and/or even Houston (still undefeated) should get a FIRST chance to beat LSU.

Finally, if Bama is in the BCS, I’ll root hard for the Tide!  But something is not right.  Others are left out.  The major powers get too much help.  These players are young adults, many of whom are not going to turn pro (as the NCAA says) and we need to have a fair procedure to decide who fights for number one.  It’ll make the rooting for the Tide a bit more difficult.
