Here Come the Tigers!

The polls are out and LSU is ranked in the top 10 in the polls for the third straight season. They are #4 in the Sports Illustrated poll, #8 in AP, and #9 in the Coaches poll. There are also 3 or 4 other SEC teams in the top 25 (Auburn, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee), so once again the SEC will beat up each other. If any team goes undefeated in the SEC they should be in the National Championship game no questions asked.

LSU's season will come down to QB consistency. They have all the weapons needed for another run for the title. If Russell and company can be consistent, it will be a very good year. They do have tough road schedule with Auburn, Florida, Tennessee and Arkansas on the road. They also go 9 weeks straight before an open date.

All in all it should be a good season, that is if we don't screw up and lose to ULL on the 2nd...NOT!!!

I hope LSU doesn't lose to UL either. I wouldn't want Baton Rouge to implode upon itself and Lafayette to be taken in a riot.

I'd gladly take my chances of a riot if UL would pull an upset of LSU.

Cajun Tiger said...

Well, if that would happen, I'd put my bets on Lafayette winning as I'm sure there are way more 2nd amenders there than in BR. Also being the Southern contigency wouldn't join the fight on the BR side and might even open a second front from the rear against them that would severly cripple any chance for the RedStickers.

Good Grief you are right. Quarterback Consistency seems to be our downfall every year.

I just wanted to let you know that our soccer team are the TIGERS, but they are blue.
