An LSU blogger has a keyboard and a source as to why the Tigers looked so out-classed in the title game.
Apparently about 3 hours before the game T-Bob Hebert and Russell Shepard and 2 other receivers and a hand full of linemen got into a heated argument with Les Miles and the Offensive Coordinator about Lee getting more playing time and possibly starting the BCS Championship game. It got so heated that Miles benched T-Bob and RS and 3 other players. He called Lee into his office and told Lee that he would not be playing in the game. The Offensive CO told Miles that he thought that Lee gave the team the best chance to win the game. Miles told the OC to start looking for a new job after the game and Miles will be calling the plays for the championship game. Apparently the O Line sided with T-Bob and Lee and did not give their all in the game to prove to Miles that the players are more important than the coach. Now I know that this is hard to believe but when you look at some things it kind of explains a few things.The post goes on from there to outline a few observations and also says Jordan Jefferson had a good time at Harrah's in the days leading up to the game. Interesting read regardless of its merit. However, I doubt LSU could've done anything differently Monday night to beat Bama from what I saw.
Going forward, Mett has said that getting to be the quarterback at LSU is like getting the keys to a Maserati. If this whiff of smoke turns out to be the result of a fire in Baton Rouge he may want to check under the hood thoroughly.
