Seems everyone who follows college football has an opinion about tonight’s BCS National Championship rematch between #1 LSU and #2 Alabama.  Most of those opinions fall on the “this title game is a sham” side of the fence. “If LSU has already beaten Bama in the regular season, why should Bama get another chance?” How […]
