Alabama won 'the game that counted'

The one thing that the BCS has made sure to cram down our throats every chance it gets when it comes to defending the BCS and the bowl system is that "every game counts" during college football's regular season. A stance that was proven wrong on Monday night when Alabama beat LSU in New Orleans to become the national champion and therefore confirm that LSU's win over Alabama during the regular season didn't count at all.

There's no word if the BCS plans to change its mantra to "every game counts except for the ones that sometimes don't."

Either way, Alabama fans are happy with how things turned out, and to commemorate their joy over another national championship for the Crimson Tide, they now have a shirt to remind them and everyone else which game actually counts.



Now we just it around and wait for the Oklahoma States and Boise States of the world to release a shirt that says "we won 12 games that didn't count and lost one that did."

Even if a playoff is implemented, a team from the SEC will win it.

hahaha wow go back to your trailer and shove your moonshine up your ass you stupid idiot!! Your idiot way of thinking is why the BS is such a joke, "no team deserves to win cuz they don't play us" booo hooo, then schedule them a-wipe. But no you won't cuz you know you would lose. Remember Utah blasting your precious Tide a few years ago dick?!?!?! And all these ranked teams Bama played, were you talking about Kent State, Ole Miss, Ga. Southern, Vandy and North Texas???? Yep no cupcakes on their schedule. Whatever you douchebag!!!!

Actually Oklahoma State, Boise State, Stanford, Wisconsin, Oregon and even USC won enough to have a chance at the title but were not allowed to "play for the one that counts". Sad that "opinions" decide who is best. Heck the SF Giants would not have been World Champs two years ago nor would the Cardinals this year or the Mavericks, or Green bay last year or any team not form the bias east IF the BS, errrrrrr,BCS ran other sports.  BOYCOTT the BCS and let college football be decided on the field.


Really?  OSU lost to nobody Iowa St., Boise lost to TCU, Oregon was a two loss team, Wisc. lost to MSU, Stanford lost to two loss Oregon. So how do you think they won enough to be in the game? Especially when BAMA played more ranked teams then they did and their ONLY loss was to the # 1 team. You Dr (haha, what ever) are a morron!

All you BIOTCHES need to get off of LSU and Bama. All that had to happen to keep a rematch from happening was to just win. But no, OU lost, OSU lost, Stanford lost, Oregon lost. If you don't like it, then beat us or better yet beat your unranked teams you cup cakes play. But you little BIOTCHES want to complain because BAMA loses to the #1 team and stays ahead of your team that lost to an unranked nobody. Put anyone of those teams in that game against either LSU or BAMA and it would still be an SEC championship. The Big 10 (12), Big 12 and PAC 12 run up 50 points a game against each other because their QB ain't running for his lifes. But you put them against an SEC team and they score 7, 14 or sometimes 21 points. And because we don't score 50 points a game (except for when we play outside the SEC) you claim the SEC's offenses suck. You don't like an SEC rematch, then win your games and beat us. Until then, STFU, bitch!

Are we really debating over a t-shirt that some company made? Really?

Saban, who a couple of years ago said a second place team from a conference/division should NOT play for the BCS so-called championship (see Ohio St / Mich), all of a sudden thinks it is a great idea!! Great coach but a sad human being. Stick to your believes there Nicky Boy, unless it does not benefit you I guess.
