If you had Alabama winning the BCS National Championship game Monday night, I’m pretty sure you did not have them winning so decisively. Nor did you really think the Tide’s outstanding running back Trent Richardson would gain more yards (96) than the entire LSU offense (92).
Finally...after nearly two complete games against each other, Alabama's Trent Richardson scored a touchdown with minutes remaining in the Tide's 21-0 thrashing of LSU Monday night.
So, there you have it. Why LSU coach Les Miles stuck with quarterback Jordan Jefferson for the entire game will forever remain a mystery. He at least owed Jarrett Lee a shot, because without Lee, LSU would never have been in New Orleans last night. But, no…we got to see Jefferson for four quarters. He had a miserable game…completing 11 passes for 53 (gasp!) yards. That’s what the top defensive unit in college football will do to you.

Jordan Jefferson remembers nearly every second of the last time he played in the Superdome.
He was the starting quarterback for Destrehan High School, and like so many kids growing up in Louisiana, was awed to be playing in New Orleans' football palace. By the end of the night, he'd led his school to its first state championship in 34 years.

No team was able to survive 2011 without losing; except for LSU. Come 2012, however, the story was different, as Alabama made the most of their rematch opportunity with LSU — who handed the Crimson Tide their lone loss of the season — and beat the Tigers 21-0 on Monday night in New Orleans in the BCS title game.

I'll leave discussion of parallels between the SECCG and the BCSCG and how things could have gone differently for Georgia to Blutarsky (and believe me, Nick Saban should send the number to his hair guy and part of his bonus check to Mark Richt for Georgia's first half game plan against LSU), but I have to question the LSU...
