Obviously, it's not something we're generally that pumped up about. But this time, it means rematch. As you no doubt know by now, on January 9, Alabama will play LSU in New Orleans for a dainty crystal football.
As an unabashed lover of all things New Orleans, I couldn't be more excited. In the coming days, we'll have breakdowns of the game (including a re-viewing of the last matchup), travel advice, and likely a discussion of nxojkt's newfound hate of purple.
I'll leave you with this quote about the 2011 Tide from Matt Hinton's Dr. Saturday at Yahoo.com:
Alabama bludgeoned its opponents by the widest margin of victory in the nation. Its seven SEC wins came by an average of 30 points apiece. Its closest win all season was 16 points, at Penn State, and it wasn't that close. 'Bama leads the nation in total defense, scoring defense, rushing defense, passing defense, pass efficiency defense and third down defense. At 8.8 points per game, the Tide are the least scored-upon team in Division I in more than a decade.
