The French Quarter isn’t the only place BCS fans are gathering. Around Orleans and Jefferson parishes there is a lot more activity early on this Monday morning. Everywhere else it’s just the first day of the week. But here, because of football, we found a common theme and they all start with an ‘F.’ as loud music plays in a local home, there is no shortage of fans still in their PJ’s having fun. Fans are yelling ‘Go Tigers’ and ‘Roll Tide.’ In one rental house full of visitors, fifteen plus people cram under a ceiling fan into one room, making the most of their free time off. "I am skipping school, left my third graders at home so I could come watch the national championship," said school teacher Aimee Stover who is an Alabama fan. It’s 9:45am, but that’s never too early in the SEC for fabulous festivities. nor is it too early for females to flirt with their fiancés. a grocery bakery has been making lots of food, especially fattening food in purple and gold and crimson and white. "Mostly like party little miniature items, pastries, dobergé squares, so there’s definitely an influx (of orders for party sweets,)" said the Dorignac’s bakery manager, Roy Thomas. Husbands who were grocery shopping plan to watch the gridiron fight on TV. they scored points when they gave their tickets to their wives. "We’re going to stay in our backyard, smoke cigars, drink red wine, fry fish and enjoy ourselves," said Dan Foley. fantastic veteran husbands who get how to keep the peace.And the final score will buy one team bragging rights until next football season.
Like many of you I’m sure did last night you tuned into the big game between #1 LSU and #2 Alabama. Both teams have been monsters so far this college season so this game was going to be awesome! Wrong, neither team saw the end zone and left me yawning saying, ‘this is it?’

I’m not a big watcher of college football outside of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, but last nights game between 2 undefeated SEC teams (LSU, Alabama) seemed like it was going to be a good one. in my opinion it wasn’t a very good game at all. Boring is the word I would use to describe it. I’m sure most of you are saying it was a good game for both defenses, who did an excellent job of keeping points off the board, but seriously lets score a TD.
Alabama lost to LSU 9-6 in OT, but really the game should have never got to OT. Bama missed 3 field goals, which if they had made them would have given them the win. instead we have 3 and out after 3 and out and I’m going, what else is on? Congratulations to LSU, still undefeated. next time though, lets do something a little more exciting. at least the latest UFC was on. oh wait, that ended on a super boring note too. Horrible.
Yep. Your crummy blowout-riddled team will get their dose of hurt players soon enough. also, after your team got absolutely shellacked 45-10 by LSCrap, I can understand how you would draw the conclusion that Crazy Lester & co. may do some of the same to Alabama. however, the Tide has this thing called a “defense” this year. If your idiotic coaches would read up on the merits of having a stellar D then AU might be looking at a better bowl than the Churches Chicken Weed Eater Valvoline Ford Ramen Noodle Bowl this December. West Virginia racked up an amazing 531 yards on LSCrap earlier, and please, show me what is special about those clowns….Oregon just wasn’t ready. If Oregon and LSCrap were playing today, I think the outcome would be reversed. Just know this: LSCrap–no discipline. Pot-heads all over the team. Show-offs. an idiotic coach who calls for a ball-spike with 0:01 on the game clock. Alabama–discipline galore. Humble players. Gracious players. a genius coach who has won BCS Titles at 2 different SEC schools. a record of 44-5 since the 2008 opener. and, best of all, the entire AU “fambly” rooting for LSCrap to beat them. ask an Auburn fan who they play this weekend and they will say “LSU! LSU! LSU! LSU! What? Huh….do wha…..oh….I think we play….uhh…..oh yeah, we are off! LSU! LSU! LSU!” Bwahahahaha
Every LSU-Alabama hype video, whether home-crafted or macrobrewed, has to hit the same notes at some point. Trent Richardson dismantling that Ole Miss cornerback, Sam Montgomery pointing to two of the earth’s four corners, and Les Miles holding back a wave of Tigers (college football’s best entrance, IMHO).
After that, it’s the mass art project most likely to get the Southeast’s creativity flowing.
The SEC’s official trailer is sufficiently badass, both in production value and pacing, as well as for giving punter Brad Wing’s penalized taunt against Florida the black-and-white, still-frame treatment:
ESPN’s might be the best. for all the complaints that can be raised against the Texaswide Leader/Big East Commissioner, nobody does montages better. It’s an important skill.
This LSU-centric number crafts a compelling narrative based on BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM:
While that one works around a Vince Lombardi quote, this Bama-friendly piece is based around pretty much everything. if it’s ever made anybody want to LIFT WEIGHTS HARD, it’s in here:
This next one might be the best of the homemade efforts, even though its first two acts appear to just be bolted together from other videos and supplemented with more BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM. here we have a pretty clear storyline, one designed to tap into the most powerful force on earth: an Alabama fan’s rage.
Most BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM-per-minute, however, goes to this rendition right here:
Of course, kinda think this is all you really need:
