If LSU Wins the National Championship, They May be the Greatest Team in College FB History

New BCS Standings:

1- LSU – 1.000 (Previous Rank – 1) (Remaining Schedule- Arkansas, SEC Championship*)

3- Arkansas – .8985 (6) (@LSU, SEC Championship*)
4- Oklahoma State – .8408 (2) (Oklahoma)
5- Virginia Tech – .7842 (8) (@Virginia, ACC Championship*)

(* game still TBD)

Three teams that were in last week’s top 5 dropped games that they were favored to win (Oklahoma State lost to Iowa State in OT, Oregon lost to USC after missing a 40 yard field goal to send the game to overtime, and Oklahoma lost by a touchdown to Baylor).  All three teams with a great chance to make it in the title game…now, Oklahoma State probably is the only team remaining that can still get in.  We look destined to have an LSU v. Alabama rematch, but LSU still has to play #3 Arkansas and then a super hot Georgia team in the SEC Championship (if Arkansas beats LSU this Saturday….please consult this incredibly simple explanation of SEC title game tie-breakers…http://sec.xosdigitallabs.com/NEWS/tabid/473/Article/134195/sec-divisional-tie-breaker.aspx).  If they win out during the regular season, they will most likely face Alabama in the BCS title game (however, Bama plays at Auburn for their final game of the year….although Auburn isn’t remotely impressive right now, absolutely anything can happen in that game…including the poisoning of historical trees as referenced in a previous post….is Alabama actually in the same time continuum as the rest of us?).  LSU’s path to winning the title this year is insane.  They will have defeated 9 ranked opponents, four of which will have been ranked #2 or #3 when they faced them (http://espn.go.com/college-football/team/_/id/99/lsu-tigers).  That’s buck wild.  We should all probably offer some gratitude to the college football gods for what they have given us this season.
