Alabama vs. LSU Live Thread: Because It’s A Bye Week, And Why Not?


Good football is good football, and no matter what their detractors say, the Kansas City Chiefs know a bit about good football.

You don’t go 9-0 by playing bad football. Just saying…

So, because it’s a bye week and because ‘Bama vs. LSU is always one of the best football games of the year, no matter the league, let’s open up the live thread of this game.

If you’re a football junky like me, chances are you’re sitting on your couch after a good round of afternoon games and hunkering down for this clash of college football giants.

We won’t have any Chiefs football to talk about on here this weekend, so I, for one, can’t think of a better substitute.

If you’re a football fan, AA is the place for you—and that includes you college football fans.

Here’s the live thread. Keep if fun, keep it clean and keep it classy.

Ready, set go.

    Love the atmosphere of these matchups. Not many places can live up to the hype at Arrowhead, but LSU or Alabama always rocks when these two play each other.

  • Bill Jones

    I live in northern Louisiana and I don’t really care who wins but I must say that the LSU fans were out in full force wearing purple and gold!

    • Andrew Kulha

      I hear they’re quite the rabid fan base. And I hear as soon as you cross into Louisiana, everything LSU. True?

  • Andrew Kulha

    LSU punches in the touchdown with some power football near the goal line. LSU up 7-3. Already more points in this game than I expected.

    I’m an Ohio State fan so I am pulling hard for LSU. This is a heck of a game so far. That fumble on the goal line was terrible.

      Geez, a double Bye week. One for the Chiefs. The other for the Buckeyes. As I keep saying to a very good buddy of mine who is both a diehard Browns and Buckeyes fan, when, will Oberlein return to football. (Great bar bet about some small school in Ohio winning their very last football game against Ohio State)

  • Jason Seibel

    Alabama. The Denver Broncos of the NCAA because that’s the only team anybody talks about.

    • Andrew Kulha

      I see what you did there. Wayda bring it back to the Chiefs!

      • Jason Seibel

        I do what I can!

  • Jason Seibel

    Hell of a play!

  • Andrew Kulha

    Alabama pulls ahead with a touchdown through the air. How does everybody feel about A.J. McCarron as an NFL quarterback?

    • Jason Seibel

      Nick Saban can make NFL level everything except QBs. Brodie Croyle anybody?

      • Andrew Kulha

        True that. If I’m taking a ‘Bama player in the first round, he’s going to be a safety or a running back.

    Man LSU is really poised on offense. I love their game plan.

  • Andrew Kulha

    Alabama has already scored more points than I thought they would the whole game.

  • Andrew Kulha

    LSU bounces back. These games are always so competitive. Love it.

  • Andrew Kulha

    This game is certainly living up to the hype.

  • Andrew Kulha

    Think this game is over. LSU down 14 just lost it on downs. Bama’s gonna run the rock from here.

    But, but, but, Nike was speeding ever so well over opponents.
