This ain’t college but it’s Not NFL eitherNovember 4, 2011


Tomorrow night in Tuscaloosa, Alabama the College Super Bowl will take place between the #1 LSU Tigers and #2 Alabama Crimson Tide. Too much hyperbole for you? Well the average ticket price is $839 bucks with the low being $382 and the highest being $2,500 all of those numbers are according to SeatGeek.com. If people are dropping Bentley payments on a 3 hour regular season college football game, I know my statement is justified.

Still think it’s all hype? The ratings don’t. The highest rated game of 2010 was Auburn vs. Alabama. Cam Netwon went through the defending national champions on his way to leading Auburn to the ship last season. The Iron Bowl game last year drew 12.5 million viewers at 1:30pm on Black Friday. Yeah, you think about that for a second. The biggest game of the year was played in the early afternoon on the biggest shopping day of the year. Imagine how many turkey drunk people missed that game. Hell, imagine how many pussy whipped men were shopping with their significant others during the game. This game is on a Saturday in primetime. Saturday’s game will blow up last year’s Iron bowl with ease.

This is a freaking NFL JV game. Last week we saw two college quarterbacks on the West coast sling it at levels their college peers could never fathom and their NFL predecessors feared. ESPN’s Colin Cowherd said it best, “it wasn’t an NFL game, but it definitely wasn’t a college game either”. This is exactly what the level of play in the College Super Bowl will be tomorrow night as well.

Bama’s defense has about 9 NFL players on it. LSU’s defense has about 6. Dre Kirkpatrick, Donte’ Hightowner, Tyrann Mathieu, Mark Barron, Mo Claiborne are the big names you will hear all game long. The offenses aren’t great, but have money makers in Trent Richardson for Bama and Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle. The quarterbacks for both teams are game managers and won’t win the game for either team, but could quite possibly lose it with a mistake. It’s crazy that in past five years we’ve seen football change from “defense wins championship and offense sells tickets” to a “offenses sell tickets, win championships and defense gets in where it fits in”.

So you’ve got big money tickets for a regular season games. Big time ratings. NFL JV players. Yeah…it’s not college…it’s better, but it’s not going to be an NFL game either. Although the competition and game play might be better between the Steelers and Ravens this Monday night, I guarantee you they won’t be playing with the same kind of urgency. The winner of Saturday’s game will NOT play in the BCS National Championship game and the winner most likely will.

Think about your favorite all-time epic tennis rally, where you just oh and ah all game long for that one point. Not many points will be scored, but one defense will make a huge play off an offensive mistake and win the game. That defense will be LSU. I don’t trust AJ McCarron. I do trust The Honey Badger and Mo Claiborne all day long. The Tigers will make AJ beat them, and he can’t.

I know Les Miles. I’m an Oklahoma Sooner to the core. I’ve seen Miles do category 6 hurricane(I know there’s no such thing as a category 6 hurricane too by the way…) damage at Oklahoma State with far less talent in big games. He gets LSU athletes this go around??? Yeah, he’s not losing.

Like I said…think epic tennis rally. LSU Tigers win by 17 – 13.

That’s all I got,
