Congrats to the LSU Tigers and their fans.. YOU ARE THE National Champs.

USC is the wanabe Nat. Champs.

Couple of Q's:

1) Who is the number one D?
2) Who is the number 1 Offense?
3) Who scored the most?
4) Number 2 of either?
4) Schedule? A loss to Cal? Are you freaking kidding me? Sorry SoCal, it really doesn't matter WHEN the loss in your season happened. Losing to an unranked team takes you out.

They all agreed on the BCS when the season started. Gonna change it cause you don't agree? Live with it.

Pred, get out the keys to the Whambulance. The SoCal boys will be whining.

Great game, even though my Sooners lost.

The bad side? The tigers will have to "share" the title with the condoms (sorry "Trojans") because the WRITERS/SPORTS CASTERS can't let their ego's go.. it seems to be more important than the kids that play the game. It's all about money... and that sucks. In a way, I'm glad the Sooners DIDN'T win it. In OK we like to WIN it, not "share it".

So we can all debate on who the "winner" really is while colledge football and the ideal of team sports suffers. It really sucks for the kids.

1st split championship under the current BCS system. Maybe it'll just go away. And this is the first year I've noticed the plethora bowls. It's almost like your school could just pick one, sign up and go. This is BS, no pun intended.

Congrats Tigers. Tough game to watch, but we kept it interesting.

Anyone else think that colossal shot to Jason White's wrist against K State may have had a lingering effect? A majority of his passes were so off the recievers never even got a hand out..... No excuses.

I'm proud that we played hard all the way and took the loss without playing dirty at the end. No sore losers that I saw.


P.S. Lookout next year, Adrian Peterson said yes!!!!

BTW, I only use "we" if OU wins or loses. Some only use it on good days.

A great game for sure... We had a small gathering at my house for the game, and all my LSU friends and fans agreed that if the game were 5 quarters that OU probably would have been the winner. They were definitely the stronger team in the end. Both teams played well and LSU took advantage of their opportunities when they were presented.

Now, can LSU repeat? I guess we'll see.

Okie; congratulations to the Sooners for playing a great game. My heart stayed in my throat for the entire last quarter. I almost couldn't watch!

LSU played their best in the early stages; and at one point simply dominated the game. Good thing too, 'cause Oklahoma came back hard!

Repeat? Who gives a rats patootie! We did it in '58, we can wait another 45 years if need be!

LSU IS the champion. Anyone who disagrees should send a petition to President Gore. :p

Awesome game. Glad to see the Tigers pull it off but I couldn't believe they let it get that close at the end. That interception thrown by Mauck really changed the game for OU's favor.

I think LSU and OU fans, and LA and OK for that matter have a lot in common, growing up in South LA there aren't many options for sports teams to root for. You've got the Saints but that's it and during the 80's and early 90's they weren't much to get excited about. No professional baseball, no basketball (until recently) and really only one college to get behind. Every Saturday meant SEC football on the tube so you became an LSU football fan if only by osmosis at an early age. From the outside looking in OK seems similar.

One thing's for sure, those are two outstanding coaches who I'm sure the NFL will be beating down their door in the offseason. Hope they both resist the temptation and come back for another round.

Congrats to both....ellllllesshhhhhhuuuuuuuu!!!!!

evenslower nailed it... a lot of folks won't understand how big college ball is in some states (southern states particularly). OK has no pro teams, sports here means Big 12 Football. I tell ya what though, given the choice, I'd take college ball over the pro version hands-down.

If you want to know who the Nat Champ is, ask who's got the crystal ball. Last I checked it wasn't cut in two. When the NCAA publishes... it won't say anything about USC.
