IMO, the problem will be LSU O-line against Alabama's D-line. So far, LSU has not faced the likes of an Alabama defensive line and defense in general. But I am optimistic that LSU is finally headed in the right direction.
As an LSU alumus, I think LSU should take the high road and give Texas the same seating for their band and fans as they do other visiting teams. There is no real point in this petty "tit for tat" and I think it is demeaning for LSU to engage in it. Also, the visiting locker room should be well-cooled for the players. We don't have to stoop down to the level of others.
