When asked where he thinks LSU will finish in the SEC West, ESPN's Jesse Palmer said the Tiger will finish 5th. Here is what he had to say:
quote:

"[I see LSU] Finishing 5th, behind Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State. I think LSU is going to win nine games this year, but I think they are going to finish 5th in that division. If there were three words I could use to sum up LSU, it would be "young", "talented", but "unproven".
Palmer is definitely not making any friends around here.

Thoughts?

Well oh well, Palmer hit the nail on the head. Sucking hind tits to Bama, MSU , Ole Miss and Auburn and finishing ahead of the Aggies and Arky. Yes sir ree, picked it just right didn't heand to think some of us Tiger fan had the gall to think he was a Negatiger.

That was a very astute observation and an accurate assessment of the situation. I still say Palmer is mad because he never got to have coitus with Erin Jill Andrews.

I think he saw Anthony Jennings play in the bowl game last year and is betting on more of the same.

Palmer is a fricking idiot...we will be solid on D and can run run on anyone. We haven't lost to MSST in like 15 years and Auburn will not be as good as people are saying. We will contend for the conference title

I like Jesse and think he is about as unbiased as possible. He does his homework and studies all the teams. Many of the ESPN douchetards do not study and prepare like Jesse Palmer. Respect

First of all he has always given LSU credit when it is deserved. Palmer is one of the better pure football analyst I listen to. What about his comments are not dead on? "Young, talented, unproven" What part of this is inaccurate? All the other teams have more experience. He didn't say we would be garbage.

Say AU goes undefeated.
Bama loses to AU and MSU.
MSU loses to AU and LSU.
OM loses to AU and MSU.
LSU loses to AU, OM, and Bama.
We would finish fifth, correct?

Explain the math to me. We win 9, which means we lose 3...and finish 5th? Does not add up."- thats what I was thinking.

If he would have bothered to spend ten minutes looking into the Tigers he would see that the losses to the nfl are huge but only leaving the WR positions bare. Even after losing two NFL RB workhorses, the ground n pound will still be elite which will allow the next elite duo of future NFL WRs to get their game up to par. The defense will finally be LSU quality even after losing two young DTs to the draft so the offense won't have to win any shootouts.

When we factor in the nations best staff at developing players, it doesn't take a genius to see that Palmer looks like an idiot making this prediction.

The SEC West is a crap shoot this year. Lsu is not getting much love and I like it.

The best commentary to Palmer's prediction is 'no comment'. This is great stuff for LM and his coaching staff to get 'Da Tigers' fired up! I hope all the media idiots pick LSU at 5th.

Game On.....Geaux Tigers

Jesse Palmer knows as much about the SEC as he does about picking quality women on the bachelor.
