Geaux Tigers: LSU finished off its perfect season on Monday night by dethroning the defending champs in Clemson. It was a dream season.

Joe Brady implemented a system with a quarterback in Joe Burrow who could execute it. It worked to perfection. Thanks to the two Joes, Ed Orgeron is a national champion. Who would've thunk it?

It's a new era in football. Defenses don't necessarily win championships anymore. That philosophy is a bit passe.

Fomer Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson, who has a CFP title of his own, must have felt pretty good when his NFL team, the Texans, led the Chiefs 24-0 on Sunday. 41 unanswered points later, KC QB Patrick Mahomes is on his way back to the AFC Championship game.

I'm sure Trevor Lawrence and Dabo felt pretty good too with their defense and a 17-7 lead. 21 unanswered points later, LSU was on its wasy to the national championship.

LSU led the nation in scoring offense with 48 points per game in 2019. Talk about a transformation. Last year with the same quarterback they averaged 32 per game.

Burrow is now going to be the top pick in the NFL draft.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach put out his "Way Too Early" Top 25 for 2020. Clemson is No. 1. Trevor Lawrence will be back. Ohio State is No. 2. Justin Fields is returning.

He put Alabama at No. 3 and LSU at No. 4. Both will have new field generals, although the Tide's Mac Jones was the starter at season's end.

Bama finished No. 8 behind Oklahoma and former Crimson Tider Jalen Hurts. Auburn finished No. 14 in the AP Poll behind a few teams that they beat in Alabama and Oregon.

Former Auburn great Bo Jackson was noticeably absent in New Orleans with the revelation of the 11 best players in college football history. He and Dick Butkus were the only two players on that list without representation at the Super Dome.

The list should've been the top running backs and a few others. 9 of 11 were backs including the top player Jim Brown.

Congrats go out to our top pickers in our annual "Pick 'Em" contest. Robbie Ellis and Mike Durham are co-champs. Both picked LSU by the way. Ellis is the first two-time winner in the 11 years that we've been keeping records.

Steve Stokes was the top bowl picker and had the best finish nationally that we've ever seen from one of our local guys. Stokes was 34-7 overall. He finished 39th out of more than 350,000 prognosticators. The best record nationally was 36-5.
