College Football Playoff Should Be Top 4 SEC West Teams

There is a simple solution for college football’s first Division I playoff. If they really want to bring the best four teams to the table to duke it out for the closest thing we’ve ever had to something that isn’t a mythical national championship, then why not invite the top four teams from the SEC West Division? Of course, they won’t do that because the folks at Oklahoma, Oregon and Florida State would suddenly go into a state of apoplexy, but you can make a strong case that the Southeastern Conference deserves two seats at the Final Four table and both of those teams should be from the SEC West.

[dropcap]F[/dropcap]ormer Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will become offensive coordinator at LSU, according to multiple reports.

Final details of deal are being ironed out and an official announcement is expected next week.

Cameron will replace Greg Studrawa, who would apparently remain with LSU as offensive line coach. Studrawa took over as play caller for the Tigers after Steve Kragthorpe stepped down as coordinator before the 2011 season due to a battle with Parkinson’s disease. Kragthorpe will stay on at LSU in an athletic department administrative position, a source said.

A longtime friend of Les Miles, Cameron worked with Miles at Michigan where they coached under the late Bo Schembechler.

Cameron was fired by Ravens coach John Harbaugh after a Week 14 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Harbaugh and Cameron have apparently remained on good terms, sending each other text messages throughout the Ravens’ playoff run, and Harbaugh said that Cameron will still receive a Super Bowl ring.

[dropcap]L[/dropcap]es Miles live tweeted last night’s Super Bowl from the Harbaugh box at the Super Dome, and as you’d expect, he did it as only “The Mad Hatter” could.

A selection of our favorite Miles tweets is below. (If you’re on Twitter and you’re not already following @LSUCoachMiles, do yourself a favor.)

Les wishes the teams well as only Les can…

He gave former Tiger Ricky Jean-Francois a catchy new nickname,”# 95 of 49er”…

Anyone know what a “pass draw” is??

Did Les foretell the coming power outage?

I think many of his tweets were written in another language, then put through Google’s translator service before posting. (H/TTeam Speed Kills)

Always on the lookout for talent…

Some deep thoughts on what the Harbaughs were experiencing through during the blackout…

Could be? Down by 5 with under 2 minutes left, what would Les have in mind as an alternative??

I think we all agree on his final message…
