Really, When You Think About It, Aren't We ALL Winners?

Illustration for article titled Really, When You Think About It, Arent We ALL Winners?

LSU coach Les Miles, who might be checking out this job posting, wants to make it clear that if college football didn't play overtime, his team would still be undefeated!

"This team has not lost a game in regulation. I know it does not mean much to you guys (media.) The point is, in a 60 minutes game, we play as competitive as we can be. There is not a team that we have played that has bested us in the first 60 minutes. If you had to look at the length and width of the game, that is how it is measured. Then you go to overtime, and I think our overtime system is just as flawed as any other overtime system. It's just the way it is and it is probably correct. You have to decide it then where it takes the length of the field and certain situations out of it. It is imperfect, but a darn good system. You tell me if there are other teams in this country that can say that. If you just give us ties, like in the old system, we are undefeated with two ties. Maybe that adds up as one loss."


This is true. Also, if they didn't keep score in football, LSU would also be undefeated. Really, they should just give trophies to everyone simply for showing up. Oh, and flowers.
