Get ready. Do you hear that? These are the rumblings from SEC country regarding the fact that LSU has punched their ticket to Atlanta, GA to face the Bulldogs from Athens for the Southeastern Conference Championship. On an even cuter note, they probably do not even need to win the game to advance to the "Mythical National Championship" game to be held in New Orleans on January 9th. Do you know what I would really like to see? Something that could and should occur. Due to the fact that LSU does not need to win the SEC to play for the MNC (go ahead and think about that for a minute), Les Miles and his LSU Tigers should forfeit the game to make a point. He has bigger fish to fry. Georgia has nothing to lose. What if the "Honey Badger" is injured? What if Jordan Jefferson loses his cool and get ejected and suspended for the next game? Why risk injury to one of the marquis starters for a game that has become meaningless? Did you catch that? The SEC Championship Game is virtually meaningless this year. That's right. LSU can lose this game and still punch their ticket to the Superdome this January to square off against the latest team "selected" to play for some apparent title. This is how jacked up the system has become. Bill Hancock's deal with the devil must be a damn good one...

The Bowl Championship Series. I think most of you know where I stand on this issue. The BCS is ruining college football. There are three weeks left in the college football season and only three games remaining matter: OU vs. Pokes...Arkansas vs. LSU...and the SECCG (presumably GA vs. LSU). None of the other games matter. Not a single one. As we all know, if the Pokes and LSU win out, they will meet for the MNC in LSU's back yard down in New Orleans. This will be good for college football.

Conference realignment. Bet you are sick and tired of this charade. The latest rumors have Houston, Boise St., Central Florida and others headed for the Big East to help fill the void of the soon to be departed West Virginia Mountaineers. The mad scramble is being driven by the incestuous desire to be affiliated with an Automatic Qualifier conference in the hopes of obtaining BCS riches. It's not about the Longhorn Network or the University of Texas imposing its will in the Big 12. This is the result of not having a true playoff system in place to determine college football's annual champion.
