The big game is tomorrow, and I am eagerly anticipating the opportunity to see LSU put a shellacking on Ohio State. The road to this championship was less than orthodox for the Tigers, and ESPN’s Pat Forde describes the drama this way.
“This was a maximum-dose, maximum-drama season. Team Cliffhanger put its fans through more tense moments than I can recall from a single team. It was one long autumn on the ledge, a season of endless suspense, a near-weekly assault on the central nervous system. Les Miles rolled the dice so often he should have entered Gamblers Anonymous, with about a million codependents living and dying on every tumble. Hopes were dashed and revived multiple times — within games, and within the scope of the season. Huge stakes, huge swings of emotion, over and over.”
