Thumbs up LSU battles Ohio State for BCS National Championship

LSU Ohio State in BCS National Title Game Jan. 7, 2008

By Tom Pace, Executive Editor, SBLive!

The Fat Lady has sung, & LSU is in New Orleans..." That quote from Joe Darwin, Petrosun I-Bowl Chariman, on the official announcement that the LSU Tigers (11-2) have been chosen to play the Ohio State Buckeyes (11-1)in the BCS Championship game January 7th in New Orleans.

"In a 24 hour period, LSU went from not having a coach, to winning the SEC Championship, and now playing for the National Championship," Darwin told SBLive!. (Listen to my podcast with Joe Darwin

Now comes the fun part: THE HYPE! ESPN's Lee Corso could not contain himself talking up Ohio State, and TALKING DOWN the LSU Tigers.
I think it's a given the Bayou Bengals have struggled to put together a COMPLETE GAME since their second game of the season.

Slow starting Tigers WILL NOT WIN the National Championship. They're got a month to get healthy and focused. Get everyone on THE SAME PLAYBOOK,
do away with the penalties, and please Mr. Miles, watch your clock management. It's a killer.

I believe now that Les Miles has made his committment as Head Coach for the Tigers (the team rallied around him, winning the SEC Championship)...
They really have something to prove to the nation....

That LSU did not get a back-door invite to the BCS. They earned it.

So much said. Let them " the talk, and walk the walk."
