The Day Is Finally Here (A Message For The Haters)

You would've thought this day would never arrive. It was 40 something days ago when Alabama completely dominated Auburn on their own field. It was 30 something days ago when LSU dominated Georgia in the SEC Championship Game. The hype is at an all time high. People are acting like this is the biggest game in the history of football

And for the States of Alabama and Louisiana, it's definitely one of the biggest

I'll be glad when we can watch what is actually going to transpire on the field, instead of looking ahead to what all the talking heads think will happen. Everyone is looking forward to this game

Although if you were to take them at face value, you would think the Auburn fans/Haters in the Media won't even be watching

Don't let those bastards lie to you. They will be watching every second of it. Just like everyone else

Looking at how they are talking about this game, one has to wonder why they even bothered to watch the SEC Championship Game last year. After all, it was a rematch. Auburn and South Carolina had played during the regular season already. The first game ended in a narrow Auburn victory. So they had already seen that game right?

"Question: Should I re-watch a game I've already seen tomorrow night, or get some sleep?" - Auburn blogger, and friend of mine, Ross Collings, in a tweet yesterday. You can read his blog, A Brit Of Orange And Blue if you'd like. You can also contact him , via His Twitter Account

My response to him was that since, TOMORROW'S game won't be played until TOMORROW, I'd love to know how he'd already seen it. Of course I know what he means

But it's one of the dumbest arguments I've ever heard anyone try to claim as a legitimate argument: That just because Alabama and LSU already played during the season, that this game is pointless and will just be the same thing right over again

LSU's season in 2011 was one of the greatest in the history of college football. They defeated teams that would go on to win the Rose Bowl, The Orange Bowl, The Cotton Bowl, and they beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa and Georgia in the Georgia Dome for the SEC Championship. No doubt that they have had quite an amazing season. But the assertion that they would deserve any part of the national championship, even if they lose to Alabama the second time around, is absolutely laughable

This the BCS National Championship Game. This game is played for a damn reason. TO DECIDE THE NATIONAL CHAMPION!!!

Of course, we could just go back to the way it was before the BCS and let the AP vote on who the champ is. It would probably be LSU. But that is irrelevant, because that is not how things are done anymore. We have a National Championship GAME now. TO DECIDE THE NATIONAL CHAMPION

I really don't even know why there is a debate

In 2007, the New England Patriots had the greatest season in NFL history. They went 16-0, the first team to ever do so. They won their two playoff games, to extend their record to 18-0 on the year. In the Super Bowl, their opponent was the New York Giants. The same Giants they had faced at the end of the regular season. The same Giants that they had narrowly defeated the first time they played. So, since the Patriots hadn't even lost a single game that year at the time, much less to the Giants who they had already defeated, this second game should've been a waste of everyone's time, right? I mean, everyone knew what to expect. We had already seen it. We had seen the Giants give it their best shot, and come up short. We had seen the Patriots beat the Giants one time already that year. Why see it again? Wouldn't the same thing happen again?

NOT SO FAST, MY FRIEND

The Giants defeated the Patriots in the Super Bowl, thus becoming the NFL Champions for the 2007 season, 2008 Super Bowl

I wonder if they see it as a tainted victory since everyone considers them "Co-Champs" with the Patriots. Oh wait, THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN. Because The Giants won the Super Bowl! They won the Championship Game

Tonight's game in New Orleans is for the BCS National Championship. If Alabama loses again, then they will deserve no part of any championship, and the entire season will go to LSU, who would completely deserve it

But if Alabama wins. If Alabama beats LSU this time around, there should be no debate. Why should there be? After all, they would have won the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. And therefore would be the National Champions.

Get over yourselves, haters. And you Auburn fans really need to get off your high horse and stop pretending that you are doing anything other than just hating on Bama. 

I'll go first: I will freely admit, that if the fortunes were reversed, and it were AU getting this second chance instead of Bama.....I would probably be acting as childish and ignorant as you are
