First, do you agree with the teams selected for the National Championship? Secondly, how's it going to play out?

Even though it's an all SEC championship, I think it's the right choice. The number two team in the nation is the right choice, especially since Alabama should have beat LSU the first time. If LSU's quarterback Jordan Jefferson can snap into it, LSU wins. If not, they lose. Alabama isn't going to keep missing field goals. I'm a Tiger fan of course, being from Baton Rouge, so that's my team. But good for Alabama. They get a rematch. I predict Jordan Jefferson will snap into it and get into his zone... big time.

LSU 34

Alabama 30

Alabama and LSU are extraordinarily good, probably equally as good so I have no problem with the national championship game. With that being said, I picked LSU to win the last one but I think Alabama will figure out a way to win this one. Unfortunately, I think it will be a low scoring game again...lol.

Bama-13
LSU-10

I would say yes, with reservations. I would prefer to see OSU but Alabama also has a solid case for being there.

I think Bama will probably win this time, and I think it will have a little more scoring.
Bama 21
LSU 17

I would've preferred the championship game be played between two teams who won their conferences, but if that scenario played out, I don't think OSU would've beat LSU.

LSU squeaks by Bama 14-10.

As Clint Eastwood said, "Deservin' ain't got nothin' to do with it."

OSU could have played for the title had they beat a sorry 6-6 team. They lost to that 6-6 team and therefore did not play for the national title. That seems plenty fair to me.

Instead we will have a team that has already proven they can lose to LSU-- lose to LSU AGAIN for the national title.

SEC logic makes so much sense...

It's not SEC logic, it's the two best teams in the nation, logic. Whether you like it or not, the two best teams in the nation are playing in the championship game. That makes perfect sense. In fact Alabama is theoritically better than LSU, judging from the last game since they should have won.

It's not the SEC's fault that it's an extremely dominating football conference.
