Sports columnists, let your anger flow through you…

image Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate.
Hatred leads to power. Power leads to victory.
Let your anger flow through you. Your hate will make you strong.
True power is only achieved through testing the limits of one's anger,
passing through unscathed. Rage channeled through anger is unstoppable.
The dark side of the Force offers unimaginable power.
The dark side is stronger than the light. The weak deserve their fate.

Now there’s nothing left to do but root for LSU.” Fox Sports’ Bill Reiter.

However, be mindful about gloating, Alabama fans. One month from now, you could be on the other end of a controversial vote if Alabama wins the mother of all rematches. – Birmingham News’ Jon Solomon.

Oklahoma State got screwed inadvertently by people and companies that don't have any idea how unfair they're being. CBS Sports’ Gregg Doyel

The SEC has this thing wired to the point that it could have been Alabama winning the first meeting and the only difference would have been in the ranking. Tide, No. 1. Tigers, No. 2. CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd

Now, college football fans who don't live on the Gulf Coast must stomach a national championship mandated by the SEC-industrial complex. ESPN’s Ivan Maisel

Don't forget, it was the SEC's own Mike Slive who tried to get a plus-one scenario going. The conferences who shot it down the quickest (B1G) are the same ones saying how unfair it is that OkSU (why not Stanford?) isn't playing LSU for the title because Alabama "had their chance."

But what if Alabama won when they had that chance?

If Alabama made one field goal out of four (even if they were all from 52 yards I'd take those odds) we'd be having the same game---Alabama would be #1 and LSU would be #2 and they would still be playing for the title because the BCS by RULE isn't about finding the best team----it's about finding the two top-ranked teams to play in one be-all, end-all game.

I don't think it's fair either.

But those are the rules.

I'd frankly love for Alabama to get to play one more game against either OkSU or Stanford to determine who plays for the BCS title.

But then again, what would that fix? If Alabama and LSU ended up in the title game after beating OkSU and Stanford, would people feel any better?
