My Pacific Northwest friends are not too jazzed about tonight’s LSU-Alabama BCS National Championship Game. I have heard the term boring used several times.
No, tonight’s game will not be the second coming of this year’s Alamo Bowl, in which Baylor defeated Washington, 67-56. This second installment of LSU-Bama will be a slugfest, an affair where every yard has significance.
LSU-Bama: Round Two could be played in the low teens, or not. LSU won the first game 9-6 in overtime, after all.
This game is not about style points though. It is about legacies.
