LSU-Alabama should feel bigger, but doesn't

In a column dated November 3rd, Paul Finebaum compared the upcoming LSU-Alabama game to a heavyweight boxing fight. He went as far as comparing it to the classic Ali-Frazier match-ups that defined boxing's glory days of the early Seventies. The problem is that the analogy doesn't quite fit.
The Ali-Frazier fights were main events. LSU-'Bama feels more like an under card, with the winner going on to get a title shot against the title holder (Florida). Maybe if LSU was 8-0 and victorious over Florida things probably would be different. But they didn't. So now all there's left is a (slim) chance at a rematch by beating Alabama. For the Tide, on the other hand, it's really the only big hurdle between them and the SEC Championship Game against the Gators.
If anything, LSU-Alabama feels more like a modern day heavyweight boxing fight. Its there, but there's no real buzz. It may be all that stands between The Tide sewing up the SEC West, but it just doesn't feel like it should be bigger than it is.
