Here’s my pick for the Bowl Championship Series winner—LSU over Alabama by 14 points.
Frankly, my pick is as good as yours. Yours might even be better. My pick is based on three criteria—whim, caprice, and bias.
LSU already beat Alabama on the Crimson Tide’s home field, but tonight’s game (it’s 90 minutes to kickoff as of this writing) is pretty much being played on LSU’s home turf.
Okay, at least it’s being played in LSU’s home state, right?
So. Why do I say LSU will win by 14 points? No reason, really. That’s where the whim and caprice come in.
Here’s where the bias comes in—I despise Oklahoma State aka billionaire T. Boone Pickens’ main charity. I despise the alumni, the whiny coach, the color scheme, the aging QB, and even the Cowboys name.
See where this is going yet?
If LSU wins, OK State will have no claim whatsoever on the national championship. But if Alabama wins, we’ll be forced to endure the crying and gnashing of teeth from Stillwater until next August.
Go Tigers. And hook ’em Horns.
