Just got my Sporting News in the mail today.

The magazine picks Ohio State to win the national championship game against LSU.

Fair enough, Ohio State has a good team. It could happen.

But one of the sub-headlines says,"Ohio State has the mental and motivational edge against LSU because it's tired of being 'disrespected.'''

Respect, though, is a two-edged sword.

LSU is the team the Sporting News questioned its smarts earlier in the year.

And on the same pages of the same issue, it quotes an anonymous someone saying, "Sometimes I look at LSU and wonder how in the world they win big games. They're predictable on offense and lousy in red zone defense. Yet every time they need a big play, one of those elite athletes sucks it up and carries them.''

That's hardly respect there either.

So the respect card can be played by both teams.

What will really matter is how well the two teams play on Jan. 7.

That's probably just a bunch of low life northern Jack@sses that hate LSU and love to see them lose.

Sporting News is not a very good read. I tried it for a while and canceled. There are much better mags.etc. to read.
Ignore them.
