Morning after reaction to Alabama’s BCS Championship Game Victory

Whether you liked the match-up or not, there was little doubt who the best team was Monday night in New Orleans. The Alabama Crimson Tide flat-out dominated an LSU team that looked like they were lost on offense from the start of the game. Alabama saw a solid outing by quarterback A.J. McCarron, who reminded some of former Tide quarterback Greg McElroy in the process.

One college football guy who made that connection, besides me, is Michael Felder, form In The Bleachers and Crystal Ball Run. Felder joined me this morning to look back at the BCS Championship game and expand on some of his thoughts on the game, which you can read here.

On this first podcast of 2012 Felder and I not only look at the game, but also reflect on the stature of Nick Saban, now with three BCS championship rings. What does this game mean for guys like Saban, Les Miles and McCarron? And what will we remember the most about the 2011 season, both positive and negative?

Perhaps more importantly, when is it too soon to look forward to the September 1 game in Cowboys Stadium between the Crimson Tide and Michigan Wolverines? Never? OK!

We could have gone on much longer on this particular podcast but I tried to keep it somewhat brief in nature given the topics we covered. I think you will find a lot of discussion and thoughts in about 30 minutes, so I hope you enjoy.
