Grantland: LSU To Win National Championship

Michael Weinreb Of Grantland.com unveiled his forecasts for the 2014 playoff participants today and has LSU winning the National Championship:
quote:

Playoff Participants:
• LSU: Because the Tigers get Bama at home, and because the SEC will most likely revert to its smashmouth roots this season, and because I’ve been consuming graminoids for fun.

• Florida State: Reverting to classic Seminole tradition, they’ll beat Oklahoma State and thrash Clemson, then lose in overtime to NC State after several players are suspended for allegedly receiving free double meat at a Chipotle.

• Oregon: Honestly, it’s not impossible to imagine Oregon losing four games, because the Pac-12 is such a fascinating gantlet of quirks and tics that it almost makes Mike Leach seem relatively normal. And yet …

• Alabama: Because if there isn’t a second SEC team in this playoff, then, like, why are we here on this planet in the first place?

National Champion: LSU
(No explanation)
Matt Borcas and Mallory Rubin of Grantland also think that LSU freshman running back Leonard Fournette will win the Hiesman trophy:
quote:

Heisman Trophy Winner
Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU: With Zach Mettenberger, Jeremy Hill, and Odell Beckham Jr. off to the NFL, this true freshman really will need to be LSU’s version of Michael Jordan — or, at the absolute minimum, Adrian Peterson.
-MB

Heisman Trophy Winner:
Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU: Sure, a clear, recent pattern has emerged of the trophy going to the quarterback from the best or most exciting team. But another pattern has emerged in tandem: The trophy going to a fresh-faced newbie who comes out of nowhere to take the sport by storm. Fournette may not be able to outrun the hype, which is far greater than what greeted Johnny Manziel or even five-star recruit Jameis Winston, but if he can, he’ll be a potentially historically productive contributor on a national contender. The only question is what Les Miles will chew on at the ceremony. Carpet?

Weinreb may not be far off...However, cupcake days are over...Some teams had real games last week.(ask Georgia)...and those bulldogs aint bad.. I agree though, If the tiger defense continues to solidify and stay stingy, and the young boys of offense continue to develop team chemistry, our chances of having a super season are better than most can imagine. I will post more in cpl weeks....Geaux tigers!!!!!

At least LSU finally has somebody mentioned in the same breathe as Heisman. That gives him an edge early on, didn't have to sneak in like HoneyB

Fournette is going to be our Maurice Clarrett without all the problems.

He will be the driving force for a National Championship, and if Auburn could do it, we damn sure can too.

There's not one overwhelming giant on our schedule. Everybody comes in with major problems somewhere.

Buga for Heisman
