    This video is pretty good:

    I'm going for Bama tonight, only so that they get the MNC over LSU without really deserving it. This year would have been perfect for a 4 team playoff. LSU vs Stanford and Bama vs OKST, winners play eachother for an actual NC instead of this wishy washy crap. I want this crappy bowl system to be exposed for how terrible it is and then maybe there will be change in a positive way. I really couldn't care less about the game itself since I don't believe anyone but LSU deserves the crown when it's all said and done.

    This is the least excited I have been about the National Championship Game since I have started watching football. Probably wont watch, but I think LSU takes it.

    As a football fan, I loved the first game between these teams. I thought it was a great, intense game.

    I think this one will be more fun to watch for most fans though. I have a feeling it will be higher scoring and not quite the knock down drag out game the last one was.

    Although I would really love a playoff system and I'm not a big fan of the BCS, I will say I think they definitely got it right. The two best teams are playing each other.

    Why is this only on ESPN? That sucks. I only get local channels and can't watch it now

    SEC games are pretty boring to me. Mainly defense and running the ball.

    LSU is 13-0. They scored 35 points or more in 11 of their 13 games this season. They are 12th overall in points scored.

    Bama is 11-1 and scored 24 points or more in 11 of their 12 games. They are 17th overall in points scored.

    I think it's going to be more entertaining this time around. I really don't think we will see a FG contest like last time. I'm guessing it will be more like 27-20 or so.

    I'm just saying year after year most SEC games are boring to me. That entire conference focuses on running the ball and defense.

    Agree with this. Wonder why no one asks Nick Saban to explain himself when he said a few years back that, "Anyone who doesn't win their conference, has no business playing in the national championship."

    What channel?

    Personally, I hope Alabama wins 9-6, just to screw with things.

    Not sure who i'm rooting for. I really don't like Nick Saban and don't want to see him get another championship. I also hate the BCS though, so an Alabama win could give more incentive to go to a playoff I think. Hoping for an exciting game at least.

    Good lord, what was up with that National Anthem? That was horrible!

    I don't know who that guy is, but he must be somebody relatively well known in order to be selected to sing at the National Championship game. He certainly wasn't selected on singing talent.
