He says you would have to be an idiot not to know that

Professor and political analyst James Carville is lobbing serious allegations against the Southeastern Conference and the University of Alabama.

He says there is clearly "collusion."

"I don't think it, I know it," he told WWL First News. "You would have to be an idiot to not know that."

Carville points to the targeting call against LSU linebacker Devin White.  He was ejected from last Saturday's game with Mississippi State for allegedly targeting the quarterback.  (Video below) It means he cannot play in the first half of the game against Alabama.

It's a call that Carville says came after White "did nothing wrong."

He says when an Alabama player repeatedly hit another player, nothing was done.

"Look at the kid from Alabama in the Missouri game multiply slugging a guy, slugging a guy... no penalty.  Our guy does nothing wrong, and they suspend him for a half."

He says this is repeated behavior where Alabama gets preferential treatment from the SEC which is headquartered in Birmingham, AL.

"It's time to bust up this little garden party they have in Birmingham," Carville proclaimed.  "If they don't want people to think it was collusion, why doesn't the commissioner say, 'This was a bad call, I'm not going to suspend somebody for a half on the basis of a bad call.'?"

Carville says it is time to call it what it is to get things to change.

"Exposure is what's needed here!"

He insists the SEC schedules games in Alabama's favor and to make things harder for LSU, among other alleged collusion to give Alabama the advantage.

Carville is from Louisiana and earned a bachelor’s degree and a law degree from LSU.
