    Yeah. LSU and Ohio St seemed destined to meet for the title, which is exactly what Sabo wants. Clemson for the double-upset!!

    Alabama did get hosed at the end of the first half. Auburn had no timeouts left so there should have been a 10-second runoff. The purpose of the 10-second runoff is prevent the referees from giving teams a de facto timeout every time they call for a replay review. Had the referees started the clock as soon as the first down chains were moved as they normally do, there's no way Auburn could have gotten its field goal team on the field and set up before the clock ran out.

    Aw, what a shame.
    Saban's multiple melt-downs made the game for me.

    edit - I'm not super-proud of my schadenfreude, but some people just need a comeuppance every so often.

    edit2 - To be fair to him, his post-game interview was classy.

    I think the problem was the play also involved Auburn attaining a first down during the play which stops the clock. You're correct in that a 10 secs subtraction from the game clock would result if the clock would normally continue to run. However, since the clock would have stopped for the first down, it requires the referee to signal the ball in play.

    Whether they got it all right I'm not sure and I'm sure will be debated for eons.

    Article 2e

    e. Starts on the Referee’s Signal. For each of the following reasons, the game clock is stopped on an official’s signal. If the next play begins with a snap, the game clock will start on the referee’s signal:

    1. Team A is awarded a first down, either through play or by penalty.
    To answer an earlier question, I like Nick Saban or...rather...I see no reason to not like Nick Saban any more than most other college football coaches.

    I realize that the play resulted in a first down, but normally the referees restart the clock as soon as the chain crew is set, regardless of whether or not the offense is ready to go, which means that typically the clock only stops for 4 to 6 seconds depending on how long the play was and how far the chains have to be moved. There's no way you can get your field goal team set in that time.

    Such is the joy of reviewing everything...or perhaps...anything.

    Three years ago, LSU allegedly "settled" for Ed Orgeron after they couldn't land Tom Herman, but look at them now.

    Tom Herman fires defensive coordinator and 2 position coaches.

    IMO it reflects on the player's coach when he does something like that. Can you imagine one of Nick Saban's players doing something this? It really was a selfish act.
