In the rear view mirror

This is a problem Ohio State doesn't have to worry about by virtue of its one-loss season. If Ohio State wins on Monday night, national championships across the board.

LSU, meanwhile, may want to look in the rear view mirror.

Already ABC-TV's talking heads are talking up USC, but I have to believe that ugly loss to Stanford will prevent the Trojans from making a big move in the AP poll.

Georgia is in the process of crushing Hawaii. This was to be expected. Just like I think Oklahoma will crush West Virginia in the Fiesta Bowl.

The point is this: LSU can't afford to win ugly on Monday. Yes, the Tigers must first win to claim the BCS title. Even a well-played close game shouldn't hurt LSU as the Tigers aren't playing, say, Hawaii. But an ugly win could open the door for an ugly split.

I think you're dead on right about this. This is almost a no-win situation for LSU unless they blow OSU out, and even then, people will talk about OSU being a weak team, so LSU's blowout means nothing. Too bad USC didn't live up to its end of the bargain to give the nation the game it has wanted to see since the split NC in 2003
