College football can but hope they're not gonna get a rehash of the 2012 BCS championship.

It came after a slugfest in the trenches during SEC play when LSU outkicked Alabama for a 9-6 victory.

One result besides tanking ratings was an accelerating sentiment for a more credible way to determine a national champion.

We still don't have it.

With only four teams in the running at season's end -- and those teams are chosen on loosely based criteria with ample room for selector bias -- it's no surprise that conference rivals will meet in a national title game.

And do know it involved tailgating. As a public service, Fanorama would like to suggest the perfect item for those occasions. Check out this nifty cool -- literally -- insulated tailgating munchie bag:

This little tote has pockets and mesh for whatever you want to stash. It's arena-friendly, too.

Not bad for $22.97.

That's right. What a deal! You can't get busted for less than that! So don't try. Just buy this and be legal about what you put into it. After all, who wants to put this bag down and move slowly away from it?
