College National Championship Game Thread...

Recommended Posts

Why the two week layoff before this game?  It really does lose all momentum from the build up of the semi finals.

In any case who ya got?

The Juggernaut LSU or the defending champs who know how to play in this big game?

Kinda strange that the most recent bowl game was Louisiana vs Miami (Ohio).  No disrespect to those programs (and I know it was a Monday night game) but its certainly strange how they schedule the games these days, lol.  

I'm going against Vegas and taking Clemson.  Also its who I picked in my ESPN pick em group with some friends, and if I get it right, I win the group.  No money involved but still fun.

Hey, mods, delete the other thread, no need.

 

Line is LSU-5.5. 

Schedule makes no sense. If they had played Friday, fresh audience, lots of people off looking to party. Monday after 16 hours of NFL playoffs, not smart.

The week layoff is ludicrous.  I have completely lost interest in college football by this point in the year.  If this isn't a great game it will be shut off very early in the evening.

LSU is going to win this tonight.

Both teams had the 2-week layoff so I don't know if there's much advantage for either team in the regard, whereas we could argue that Bye week was partially responsible for Baltimore's rust and KC's very slow start and drops this past weekend.

I want Clemson, but I think LSU wins.

I've been leaning LSU for a while but man, something about these Clemson teams make it very hard to pick against them.  Gun to head, I'm still sticking with LSU.   And honestly the only reason is it just feels like their year...especially with them playing a home game tonight.  

That said, I hate LSU with a passion.  Low class disrespectful scumbags and I kind of want to see their dreams crushed in embarrassing fashion.  So while I think LSU wins, I'm pulling for Clemson.

It feels risky picking LSU.  They've been balling out and are playing basically a home game but are only 5.5 point favorites per Vegas (I believe they opened as 2 or 3 point favorites)?  Sounds like a trap to me. 

LSU SHOULD win but if I was a gambling man I wouldn't pick them to cover, that's for sure.

Even with picking LSU, I've always maintained it's going to be close.  I agree, I'd take Clemson if I was betting.

LSU isnt going to let this be as close as y’all think. Hell, the game hasn’t started yet, maybe I’m wrong, but I see a 35-28 type of game.

Everything points to LSU.  Their current level of play, playing at home, Heisman Trophy winner etc.   If Clemson wins tonight it will be their 30 straight win and second consecutive National title.  It’s damn near impossible to do that these days.  This run has been great, certainly doesn’t get old playing in these games.

I said elsewhere -- I know what we have in Lawrence, Higgins, Etienne & Co... Want to see these LSU skill players have to fight back after taking one on the chin and going down 10-14 points.

I wanna see Jefferson, E.-Helaire and Burrow stress tested.

I just think Clemson hasn't played a team like LSU, while LSU has already beaten teams about as good as Clemson. We'll find out soon enough.

I don't know, they just played OSU and found a way to win.

 

Is it me, or does it seem like LSU is always playing at the Superdome in their big bowl games?

I'll give you OSU but I was talking more about regular season schedule. When Clemson was walking through some cupcakes, LSU was running the gauntlet.

LSU may win, but it won’t be because of some mythical “gauntlet”, it will be because they are better.  Clemson has de-bunked the “gauntlet” myth in past years.

You can't argue the difference in the strength of schedule between the two because it's not even close. LSU was knocking off Top 10 teams almost weekly when Clemson was playing a cupcake ACC schedule.

Now can Clemson win.....of course the can, look no further than them beating a Bama team last year that I thought was unbeatable.

The difference in schedule makes no difference.   If it did, the SEC team would win every year.  Again, the “gauntlet” doesn’t determine the winner.  Clemson has won two of last 3 National Championships, if the “gauntlet” was a thing they would have zero.

LSU has handled Bama, Georgia, Auburn, Oklahoma, Auburn and Florida. 

Clemson definitely hasn’t played a team like LSU. This is their year.

I bring up the schedule because I think LSU is the more deserving team given what teams they had to face this year to get to this point.

You know I have no rooting loyalty to either team in this game.
