LSU and Alabama’s merit as two of the top college football programs in the nation can’t be questioned. They’re No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in The Associated Press poll and have produced numerous NFL players, including current Patriots Stevan Ridley, Kevin Faulk, Mark Anderson and Brandon Deaderick.
As you may have heard, they meet up Saturday night.
On TV, in the newspaper and around the Internet, the game is being hailed as the game of the century, with Alabama favored by 4 1/2 points in the sports books. The hype surrounding it is thrilling for supporters of the Crimson Tide and Tigers, but for the rest of the football-loving world, it’s gotten old quickly, as Will O’Toole illustrates in the cartoon above.
Since graduating from Seton Hall University, Will O’Toole has been doing cartoons for over 30 years for a number of papers (USA Today), magazines (College and Pro Football Weekly) and websites (CBSSportsline.com). He is believed to be the only national cartoonist to have voted for the Heisman Trophy and the Wooden and Naismith Awards.
