BCS National Championship Open Thread: LSU vs Alabama

The BCS National Championship is on tonight, as LSU will face Alabama in a battle for who has the best NFL talent. Or something.

Lots of NFL-quality players will be playing on both teams, with RB Trent Richardson, CB Morris Claiborne and CB Dre Kirkpatrick being possible targets for the Bucs with their fifth overall draft pick. In addition, S Mark Barron, DE Sam Montgomery, WR Rueben Randle, DE Courney Upshaw and LB Don'ta Hightower could all be first-round draft picks once everything is said and done.
