Any fears about LSU missing key players for the national championship showdown with Alabama have been proven unfounded.

Miles announced at his Friday press conference that all members of the Tiger roster would be academically eligible for the postseason. Multiple outlets, including, had reported that several players could have been in danger of missing the Alabama rematch with academic trouble.

"We have been able to determine there are no academic casualties," Miles said. "I don't think we've lost any guys in bowl prep at any school I've been at. It's a fundamental. They want to be there for the back end. It's a great incentive to do well."

The news will obviously be a huge relief to any worried Tiger fans, whose team will almost certainly need all hands on deck to fend off the challenge of the nation's No. 2 team in New Orleans Jan. 9. After opening as a one-point favorite, LSU is now a one-point underdog to the Tide according to

Bamafan said, " LSU was handed "Gift Wrapped " that win by stupid refs that made a bad call on int. then let the honey mugger horse collar and call holding. I bet he get HURT BAD in this game! I hope his Football carrer ends in the BCS game. I hope he never suits up again."

Classy comment, Bamafan.  Again showing why the Nation does *not* like you Ala-crybabies.  We are astounded at your narcissism and lack of sportsmanship.  Wishing great harm on players, no matter who they are, is demonstrative of your horrible, insecure and petty attitudes as Alabama fans. 

Alabama Nation:  Can't you "good" fans get morons like this guy to shut up?  He needs to be put down.

USC does not care about football???? REALLY...USC did not care so much they own the destinction of being the only school to be forced to give back a BCS Trophy and voluntarily, a Heisman. I don't recall these things were returned because USC didn't care, I remember it was because "Pete the Cheat' and a few members of the Trojan-nation cared TOO much.

So save the Pius educational BS for your inner-circle of PAC 12 infamously fair weather fans. Additionally, denigrating the South is a diversionary tactic because PAC 12 fans know any discussion concerning superiority between-the-hashes starts and ends with the SEC.

I live surrounded by the richest agricultural land in the country, and a short distance from the ocean.  Mountains and lakes are within an hour from my home, as do many others around the state.  So what?  No envy there, nor wish to trade places...just as I'm positive you would not wish it as well.  Ignorance is bliss.  I'm sure your states live within their means..the majority of them are barely above poverty level.  It's all relative, isn't it?  Our economic struggles would be your wildest dream of economic boon. 

Your throwing crap to the wall, unfortunately, nothing sticks.

<span style="font-family: Verdana; color: black; font-size: 7pt;">LA Poorest educated?


CA residents live on an active fault line, generate most of it's water and electricity from sources other then its own state, and from your own email is close to bankrupting (if not already bankrupt) several cities within the state.

LA residents live in one of the United States riches most fertile fishing and game areas in the nation ("Sportsman's Paradise")

Affordable upper education is available which brings in many people from all over the world. It doesn’t cost billions to be educated and live in the state. And still many of us go on to live successful productive lives.

It’s wonderful you've propped up your bankrupt educational system. How long will that 6 billion last until you ask your residents for more?

You would think with such a high level of education in the area the state would find a way to live, educate and work within an acceptable budget which is common sense to most of us poor, dumb folk... 

you don't spend more then you make.....pretty easy to understand.

God you're a fool....California has the eighth (8th) largest economy in the WORLD, not just the U.S., THE WORLD.  Comedic just can't make this stuff up.  I couldn't expose your ignorance any better than you've exposed yourself.  Your entire region is the poorest, least educated and over weight in the country, but can play football!   Here's a clue, even the Ivy League caliber university - also one of the wealthiest in the country, Stanford, fields an impressive team - considering that it makes zero comprimises in academic achievement, and draws from the smallest recruiting base in the country.  Five PAC teams rank in the top 25 academic universities in the country.  The state is in economic trouble, but private donors have stepped in to fill the void.  USC just launched a six (6) Billion dollar endowment fund...6 Billion, raising one (1) Billion in less than a year.  What is that about California and it's economy?  People here care more about university funding than's just some of us do that very well too!

Better educated? How is it that California is bankrupted from it pathetic goverment decisions, compiled of so called better educated people. Richer? I wonder in what regard anyone would classify themselfs as richer than someone else. People of quaility and knowledge understand the term rich is subject to ones own personal desires. Of coarse if it is money that compiles such a statement. someone who would pay $1,000,000.00 for a house that only costs $100,000.00 to build, well one has to ask who is educated. I suspect this would be another reason California is broke. But of coarse they are better educated? And as far as rich, well when it comes to money, ever heard of Sam Walton, (that would be Wal-Mart) and Fred Smith, (that would be Fed-EX). the list goes on and on. Of coarse here a dollar is worth a dollar, not 10 cents. But of coarse were not very well educated. Perhaps certain California COWS should get their FAT mouths out of the public trough and get their head out of the muliti colored clouds they create with their wonderful drugs.

I seem to remember Bama being an even bigger favorite in Vegas for the Nov. 5th matchup.  How did that work out for

maybe not on your 13" blk/white tv it wasn't. but even so at best it was an incomplete pass. quit whinning about the refs and look at lack of confidence in the "D" @ home by your coach. Saban blew that game for you.

Why is Alabama a favorite?
Because Las Vegas knows that Alabama will win the national championship.
