it doesn't matter how good your how bad you're the only thing that really matters it's how good do you want to be Vincey on doused in confetti after an inhuman winning effort over USC Cam Newton camping a dominant drama-filled season with championship hardware Urban Meyer and Tim Tebow slicing through national powers with top speed hell even Bama on a crazy huge walk-off bomb these are the images we've come to expect with the college football national championship game but in 2012 we got to see what happened when a dream rematch between two bitter SEC rivals turned into another body mashing offense free rerun nightmare this is the worst college football national championship the BCS National Championship New Orleans Louisiana January 9th of the year of our Lord 2012 the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide are set to square off in a game the broadcast compares two great rematches in sports history board McEnroe Duke Kentucky Holly Frazier and so on just two months earlier in Tuscaloosa the SEC West Tigers and tied both with defenses bursting with future NFL players played the type of game that only an emotionless dust really sure would love especially if said car crusher loves missed field goals it was an ugly nine six overtime LSU win and honestly it wasn't a great fall otherwise income inequality was on center stage and Occupy Wall Street people spent way too much time tweeting about Beyonce's uterus Steve Jobs died o Jays lawyers daughter and NBA forward Kris Humphries couldn't make their very real and true love work and a bunch of wild animals were let loose in Ohio which led to the horrific scene of random dead Tigers just out for everyone to see hey speaking of which fast forward a couple months and the dream is that with time to prepare college football's number one number two will get their acts together on offense for a complete fun game and the first quarter is uneventful some Ponce Alabama kicks a field goal LSU does nothing and doesn't get past their own 47 second quarter Alabama doesn't do much they kick a ball into a meaty LSU hand kick another couple through the uprights and LSU puts up 15 total yards of offense punts twice in the quarter and hey at least these LSU gals predicted the number of first half tiger first downs so now it's 9 nothing Bama but good news there's another half of football left and the Tigers have baby freshman Odell Beckham jr. at receiver maybe Tiran Matthew the honey badger will get something going hell they even have a charming taunting Australian who takes fake punts the distance let's stay optimistic even with a halftime show somehow featuring more field goal attempts maybe all that Occupy Wall Street protesting in the fall will lead to productive steps addressing well maybe a movie coming out next week about Mark Wahlberg as a former smuggler pulled back in for one last job will be amazing I gotta try to fix this and hey if an ugly offense free Alabama 9 o rerun isn't your thing you could flip to CBS for a Hawaii five-o rerun or something called ion for a cold case rerun Hank maybe it's the one where they try to find whoever murdered LSU's offense back to the field third quarter another Alabama field goal and oh my God look at this it's a 19 yard completion to baby freshman Odell Beckham jr. here we go offense is getting revved up nope they stall out at the 47 punt it and throw on a penalty on the punt for good measure and then because the universe hates a bad rerun we get punt interception missed field goal punt field goal LSU adds a whopping 1 1st down and at this point probably needs brand new social navigation app ways for directions to midfield let alone the end zone you saw and yes that will include a left turn into a busy Bama defense with no signal please let's just end this nightmare fourth-quarter punt punt sack fumble and before yet another punt a miracle happens for the first time in eight quarters in this matchup an actual real-life touchdown and a missed extra point since that's what this game deserves and then the game just slowly died from there LSU needed three and a half quarters to cross the 50 unless you can count the band they didn't get to a hundred total yards and both teams combined to go five of 26 on third down as Alabama took home the BCS trophy in a silver lining brisk three hours flat then would take home the hardware again next year big over Notre Dame three years after that verse Clemson and of course again in an overtime thriller in 2018 against Georgia oh and LSU coach Les Miles would be let go a few years later although he did eat some grass during a game so there's that and to round out the slow inevitability of powerful forces winning out the Occupy Wall Street movement just sort of ended after disrupting ports and bridges and everyone kind of went home Apple kept fanboys everywhere happy with various nanos and touches and minis nobody remembers Mark Wahlberg as a smuggler where is the face people continued to project their own weird issues on everything Beyonce did Jay's lawyers family released Keeping Up with the Kardashians Kim's fairytale wedding Khloe and Lamar Kourtney and Kim Take New York Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami a very Merry Christmas special I am Cait and of course the dash dolls and again Alabama just kept winning so here's the thing the game was bad most people knew going in it was probably gonna be bad into America's credit nobody really tuned in the lesson we're all dumb and constantly need new shiny things hope is futile stock up on canned good you never know I'd argue that any time Alabama wins it could be considered the worst thanks for watching subscribe to SB Nation we're gonna have a new episode out every Monday so comment down below that's where

    As an LSU fan, I have to say this was a bad game. The problem wasn't with the team, it was with the coaching. Les Miles and Cam Cameron screwed us. Everyone talks about the 9-6 overtime win and LSU turning around to be the first team in modern history to get shut out in the Championship game. What they don't talk about was Les Miles benching Jarret Lee, the clearly better quarterback, during the Alabama game after he threw 3 interceptions, and he never saw the field again. Jarret started the entire year for us till then, and Jordan Jefferson from halftime of that game onward. We could have won that game, with an actual passing quarterback. Unfortunately, Les' run first mentality and his insistence of using a dual threat quarterback left us one dimensional, and Saban (who was the best coach we ever had) picked us apart the way I knew he would. It kills me to say this, but you are absolutely right about this being the worst College Football National Championship game ever. However, I will preface that by saying Bama shouldn't have even been in that game. We should have been playing Oregon State, or destroying Boise State if they could have made one damn field goal. Bah. Bad memories. Good video though.

    I think 2013 was a little worse. ND’s defense didn’t even get off the bus.

    I almost clicked the dislike on this one after hearing the sarcastic remark "anytime Alabama loses, it's a good day". Then, I remembered that jealousy shows many forms and this is just another one. Yes, we were crushed by Clemson. Congratulations to those young men! They were prepared and we weren't. They are the National Champions. Now, can they retain their title? We shall see! RTR!!!

    I remember watching this game and wondering why LSU did not substitute qb Jordan Jefferson! That was the worst CFB National Title Game!

    If this is mean then I’m sorry but Alabama is only a championship team if the other teams that they face in college football don’t show up and really give the Crimson Tide something to sweat over. I understand that three times in a row Clemson really made them sweat except in 2019 when Clemson decided to destroy them on national TV. As for any other team not named Clemson, you might as well not even play the National Championship game and just give the trophy to Alabama. No matter what changes you make to the postseason format Alabama, for better or for worse, will always be there in the hunt for another National Championship because they’re handled like an NFL team. However, the one and only thing Alabama is terrible at, and this probably did hurt them in this year’s championship game, is coaching and keeping their coaching staff together. The reason I say this is because they’ve had to constantly make changes year after year and on one recruiting trip some of the assistant coaches were mean to normal high school students that were not on even on their high school’s football team and that caused some of the recruits at that high school to not even talk to those coaches from Alabama. So my question to Alabama fans is this: how does it feel to root for a university that promotes bullying?

    At least the guy at the end admits he's just a hater.

    To everyone but Clemson, you want to be the best, you have to beat the best.

    Not if you appreciate all time great defense…most real fans do…especially men…these were the top 2 teams not just a scrub and Bama had the greatest defense of all time in 2011 and lsu only crossed the 50 once and Bama drove em right back across it with sacks…. auburn is that you?

    9-6 game was awesome. Good defense doesn’t make it a bad game. Some people shouldn’t be allowed to make football videos.
