I wouldn't exactly consider Racy McMath an unproven WR. He has played a lot, and is expected to be a star this year.
What if LSU didn't have to play bama in natty a month after beating them in 2010? Answer,they would have another natty themselves.
Correction the greatest season in LSU history as well as the history of college football,full stop!
To all who keep making reference to " lsu returning to an 8 win season post all the key departures" Lsu isn't an 8 win program,and have won less than 9 games 3 times in 17 years. So I wish they would do research before making asinine comments!
I believe brennan will have a really good year, but no way will his numbers be better than burrow. If that is the case, they'll be playing for another natty! I believe that they can be in contention for playoffs again, but I am concerned about the loss spring practices that could hinder that effort.
Newsflash, Texas A&M has never been a rivalry with LSU. They have won 1 highly controversial game against them since entering the SEC!
This is crazy, Kirk is spot on!! This is life or death, while football is a game of entertainment! Our value system is so warped,but what's new!!
Just eliminate the cupcake games,and that will be enough season for me. By the way,anybody who think LSU will be a middle of the pack sec team knows nothing about what's coming back and what was brought in. Aslo mark my words, Brennan will be a stud & star!
Miles ruined so many qbs it ain't funny. Jordan Jefferson,Jared Lee, Ryan Perriloux,Josh Booty, Brandon Harris are all qb who came from spread offenses and stuck under center in pro style under Les. Brandon Harris was Terrance Marshal hs qb and one of the top qb in the nation. This has never been an issue of lsu not being able to find a qb, instead lsu was where great hs QBs came to die.
How proud would he be of Herman had things worked out?
Every ranked opponent LSU has played, has been in the top 10. When they play Georgia, that would be 2 teams they've played and likely beaten in the top 4, and 3 in the top ten. When the comparison argument is made with Ohio St., its always said that they beat these many(whatever the number) ranked opponents. The truth is, Ohio St. hasn't beaten anyone who was ranked in the top 10 at the time they played except Penn st., who they struggled with at home. Had they played that way against LSU or Bama(with Tua) they wouldve gotten smoked!!
Assuming LSU beats Auburn, they'll be number 1 by the selection committee going into the bama game.
Bama has beaten lsu the pass several years, but embarrassed them only 2 twice. Most games have been close until LSU's D gets tired,because of their past stone age offense. Just a point of fact I thought needed mentioning.
does anyone know who bama play this wkend?
Interesting how all the talk is about how well Florida played against LSU,and admittedly they played better than most expected. However I think its worth noting that they scored a fluke td as time ran out before halftime, Delpit dropped a pick that ultimately led to a score, and Fulton had a pick called back due to a bogus beneath the knee call hit on Trask, even though it was clearly on the thigh. So given that, the game really shouldn’t have been as close as it was. LSU will be ready for Bama, and that secondary who's definitely not better than Florida's.

Yes because that 1 none P5 team is probably as good or better than anyone bama has played.
Kirby is not in the category of great among coaches, no better than M.R.
Simply put, Florida don't pass the "Eye Test"
Texas would've blown Florida out in game 1, and would still win today at home.
I don't see it close either, so ill go with the Vegas handicappers to get eyes checked per your recommendation.
Just fyi,LSU is 58th nationally rushing, Florida is 108th
Florida really should've loss to Auburn,but for an extremely inaccurate qb who made way too many mistakes. If Florida turn the ball over 4 times Saturday night, they will lose by as many touchdowns. With no turnovers, they lose by 2 tds.
Not sure anyone would argue with FPI prediction of lsu vs bama, but if Lsu is able to make to bama undefeated, I feel really good about there chances to pull out a victory in Tuscaloosa
dont forget to mention that the last time Florida played at lsu les miles was the coach, which is a very important fact.
Anyone who watched this game know that LSU could've scored well into the 50's,but shut it down for the entire 4th quarter.
You're very ignorant!
Interesting how the writer while discussing bama and their defensive issues , mentioned their "injury plaque dfense". However,writer failed to mentioned that LSU'S starting front 4 has been out 3 out of 4 games. This is a common omission of writers and talking heads when discussing Lsu & defense,and its curious.
