Which smacks of abject laziness and cowardice all around. They have no justification to deny the Ducks what is rightfully theirs, and no way of explaining their way out of refusing to award them the title. So they strip the title from LSU, and go hide under the bed.
Reminds me of what the NARAS did after they stripped Rob and Fab of the New Artist Grammy; that is, they vacated the award, rather than (1) give it to the real vocalists and musicians of Milli Vanilli, or (2) give it to the artists who finished 2nd in the final tally. To say nothing of the 2005 Heisman Trophy situation.
Cowardice. Plain and simple.
