LSU was on their way to holding the strongest resume of any team in college football history. They beat Oregon in the season opener, Alabama in Tuscaloosa, and Georgia in the SEC title game.
But in the game that counted, LSU couldn't muster even a single point, losing 21-0 to Alabama in the BCS title game.
The Tigers weren't ready for the game. Alabama came out with a perfect game plan and caught LSU by surprise with an aggressive aerial assault, torching two All-American corners in Morris Claiborne and Tyrann Mathieu.
LSU did everything right up until that game, winning games with defense, special teams and power football.
Miles didn't adjust and kept struggling quarterback Jordan Jefferson in the game too long.
Miles has a BCS championship with LSU, but their rabid fans expect another win in the game that matters.
