Alabama vs. LSU Review: How the Bama Offense Cost the Tide a Title Shot

LSU beat Alabama 9-6 in overtime on Saturday and put a dent in Alabama's aspirations to win championships in 2011.

Many fans and media will blame the Alabama field goal unit, and that could be somewhat fair, but isn't the whole story.

Alabama wouldn't have had to kick so may field goals if they had of executed on offense more consistently on Saturday night.

Although it was against a very tough and fast LSU defense, Alabama expected the offense to perform better than that.

Instead, it was a disjointed and disappointing offensive effort for the Crimson and White.

It was such a poor performance that I believe it cost them a shot to get a rematch with LSU in the national championship game, even if both teams win out.

The Alabama defense was solid and put together another impressive performance this weekend. The Tide defense played well enough to win, if the offense had done their part.
