It’s not like Alabama has been that good. LSU totally sucks.

One of the worst national championship games ever!

I am dumbfounded as to why LSU is still going with Jefferson.

It's called defense, something teams in many conferences are unfamiliar with. LSU hasn't lacked for scoring this year with the exception of two games.

I was listening to a preview of this game on a sports radio show today, and the host had an NFL scout on the air who predicted that 20 of the 22 defensive starters in this game are likely to go on to play in the NFL. That’s an amazing indication of how strong these two defensive units are.

An incredible defensive game by Alabama! Roll Tide, Roll!!!!

This will be Saban’s 2nd National Championship at Alabama in 3 Years, and his 3rd overall. Also, if the Tide pulls this off, Alabama and Auburn will have won the last 3 National Championships for the State of Alabama.

Also, there has never been a shut out in a national title game.

LSU has not made it across mid-field the entire game.

Not a great chamipnship game.

These are the nation's #1 and #2 defenses. So, it is a great game, just a great defensive game.

It’s been ‘field goal city’ with this game. Same tactic Saban used with LSU earlier....this time.....the kickers scored...except ONE that sucked on ice.

Frankly, I’d like to see more tactics on the offense, but, hey, points win.

Rooooooooooooooooooooooooollllllllllllllllllll Tide!

They need to throw the ball, Lee is by far the better passer, I just don’t get it.

Not watching the game.......and now I know why. This is why the NFL is such a great league, they know points sell. Plus they have a playoff not a mythical championship game where the oligarchs of major football conferences are protected from up and coming teams.

Get a playoffs NCAA; then maybe I’ll watch a bowl game.
