Ho-hum. Alabama has done it again.
All this hype, all that the LSU had earned, but the Crimson Tide got into a harsh Death Valley environment, overpowering their SEC counterparts with a 29-0 win.
Nick Saban's team prevented the tigers from reaching the red zone until the fourth quarter, beating them 576-196.
Bama improved to 9-0 and took the SEC West. The Tide won their eighth direct meeting in this series, a track with three failures–including two straight in Baton Rouge.
All this happened against the nation's No. 3. Are not we bored?
If you are, that's understandable. It's like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors in the NBA. You know what happens. They know how this story ends. Although we continue watching, we are just waiting for the inevitable.
Alabama still play Mississippi State and Auburn, with Citadel of lower division in-between to end the regular season. Even so, the Crimson Tide will likely be three touchdown favorites or better for each match.
According to ESPN insider Phil SteeleOne competitor set the opening line for the SEC Championship match between Alabama and Georgia at -13.5 in favor of the tide. So much for the title fight in the best league of sport.
Maybe you're looking for the fast-forward button. And it's stupid to say, "No, friend, sit back and enjoy every moment of that size." If you are already on the other side of the fence, it will not change after another reign.
Still, this is peak performance in college football.
Love it or hate it, this is a miracle that you can observe.
Saban has raised the bar in a sport where several dynasties were celebrated, but dropped much faster than the Crimson Tide allowed. Alabama has been around for more than a decade the biggest game of the season for every opponent. However, this emotional boost is rarely anything after the opening whistle.
Do not like to get better
Of course, this is not an easy task. LSU coach Ed Orgeron told reporters after the failure of the failures and explained the need for the Tiger–to say it openly–better players to compete with the tide.

# LSU's Orgeron: "Alabama has overwhelmed us. If you maximize your protection and do everything you can and beat you, you need to look at the staff. I do not think it was a plan at all. "He says the LSU needs to recruit more linemen on both sides than & # 39; Bama & # 39; s.
The only team with a team comparable to Alabama is Clemson–or, you know, the Cleveland Cavaliers run by LeBron James. The Cavs grabbed one from Golden State–as did Clemson Bama–but only one.
However, we should not complain about programs that aim for higher altitudes than we've ever seen. This includes better recruitment and better player development. The goal, however, is not just size. No, that's historical excellence.
Especially thanks to star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa–who tried his first pass in the fourth quarter of the season on Saturday and he only threw one–Alabama is talking for the best team in the history of college football.
The Crimson Tide has never reached this level of production. Tagovailoa, who has scored 30 touchdowns in nine games versus a single intercept in nearly 200 attempts, makes this a record-breaking campaign.
And Saturday's setback on a still elite but not perfect defense solidified that idea in a campaign full of blowouts.

The two best college teams of the modern era are Miami 2001 and 2004 USC. Miami played two games within 11 points, and USC played five games with 11 points. Alabama has not played within 22 points this year.
Now imagine yourself beating The Team.
Sure, even the theoretical possibilities seem to be limited. Notre Dame or Michigan? Doubt it. Ohio State, Oklahoma or West Virginia, does each of you have enough defense? Georgia feels like a distance. Clemson is the best hope for his immense talent and past encounters with Alabama.
If that's the case, the underdog will immediately claim one of the biggest surprises in college football history.
And the alternative looks like a legendary team thriving.
We understand the spread of Alabama fatigue. But like it or not, this era of Crimson Tide football leaves a remarkable impression that the sport will long remember.
Even if it seems a bit boring at the moment.
