To bad it doesn't really matter for the Tigers. 

In the first BCS Poll released earlier tonight, LSU was revealed as the best team in college football. Alabama was No. 2, followed by fellow unbeatens Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Boise State, Wisconsin, Clemson and Stanford. 

The Tigers shouldn't pay attention to what a mixture of computers and humans think about them. And Les Miles has let it be known rankings don't affect him or his team. 

If LSU remains undefeated for the rest of the season, they will play in the BCS National Championship in New Orleans for the third consecutive time. The same goes to Alabama, who will play LSU on Nov. 5. If the winner of Oklahoma and Oklahoma St. later this season remains unscathed, they will be the opponent of a SEC unbeaten. 

But is this fair to the four other undefeated teams? Because none of those teams don't play each other, there can be a scenario where there could be six undefeated teams at the end of the year. 

This can be fun. A ton of fun. 

Most college football fans want a playoff. Writers have called for a "Death to the BCS." If six undefeated teams remain at the end of the season, this cry will only get louder. 

How should LSU fans feel about this? The easy answer would be a playoff, like how everybody else feels. 

But why? The BCS will always favor SEC teams. LSU has been favored by the computerized twice now for BCS National Championship games. Why should they want change?

That's for you to decide. I'm a man that will watch college football regardless. 

But if there is an execution or killing to a computer system, I would sure love to see how it happens.
