    bored already. Monday Night Raw time.

    In all seriousness, only reason to watch the game is defensive prospects.

    i don't know whats boring watching these two heavyweights do battle...

    anyways...game playing right into lsus hands again

    upshaw has shown me the lateral agility already i want to see in a stand up olb...he's a conversion guy all the way...now i want to see some power pass rush play and hand usage...my worry though he looks a little short for ireland and company...i'm nervous about him being a legit 6 ft 2

    mark barrons a heat seeking missile in run support...love that guy...you get him in the middle of round 2 i think you stole something...

    mathieu for lsu can play for me any day...on the boundary or in the slot where i think cause of his height he'll play more at the next level that kids a football player...tough agressive willing to put his nose in there

    so far lsu dline looks like getting the best of bamas oline in the run game...

    this games loaded with nfl talent...love it

    The Bama run game is waking up...not seeing how this game is playing to LSU so far. Its felt like Bama has been i control and now they are driving again.

    Bama is moving the ball, but they better pick up a TD while they are having success. Dont see this going on all game.


    D's are REALLY fast...just a different level than any other bowl game.

    If Ireland goes by parcells strict requirements for lbs, I don't know if upshaw is on the big board. I hope he's not that myopic but I'm not so sure

    3 drives where they could have scored...6 points to show. They really needed a TD there.

    I think they go 5 or 6 deep too. I'd take these guys over our secondary....right now.

    LSU is just getting NOTHING on offense. Bama's D is just ridiculous.

    Is there any doubt anymore that the two best teams in the country are playing eachother?

    i take it you don't remember the first matchup b/t these two...bama moved the ball all over the place in the first half and kept settling for fgs/fg attempts and lsu got their wind in the second half

    You realize you are watching two completely suffocating defenses?

    No team all year has played LSU close save for Bama...and now they are doing it again.

    I don't love watching defensive battles, but OK St. and Stanford would be lucky to get 20 on either of these teams. Neither of their Ds could hold these teams below that.

    I could not think of a worse coach for the Fins than Les Miles. I have read he is not a candidate, but Alex Marvez mentioned him as one on QAM today...ugh...

    I would take Mangini, Brian Schottenheimer and Herm Edwards over him. Jim Haslett might the only worse candidate that I can think of.

    I would love to see what Oregon or Boise State's offense could do to these defenses.....but without a real playoff system in place we will never know.

    Barkavious Mingo you mean? Still very raw, but LSU has 4 or 5 RS guys on the DL who are damn good.

    I also understand these are 2 great defenses, but Jordan Jefferson looks like a D3 QB

    As OLB Upshaw and Perry of USC would interest me in round one. HOWEVER, I am betting we a 4-3 team by then.
