LSU is going to 'sneak up' on dem boys this year. Gotta luv being in this role as the Tigers have always gotten everyone's best shot being at the top of the SEC.

Game On.........Geaux Tigers!!!

TigerTale22 - You must not have followed Tiger football very long. That is the blueprint for our success over the years, dynamic running game and strong D, along with average to below average QB play has won us two BCS titles, SEC titles and more games than any other BCS school over the last 10 years.

And don't sleep on that young freshman QB with the howitzer for an arm. His upside is off the charts. Not to dismiss Jennings. But Jennings will have to step up his game if he is going to hold off the young buck.

With the current QB situation LSU is at best 4th in the West. Jennings and or Harris will definitely disappoint. Don't think the running game and D can carry the load.

I would probably put LSU at 4th or possibly 5th. I think Ole Miss and Miss St. have a chance to over take them this year. They've been declining for a little while now and I think they will struggle this year.

Obviously I agree with Alabama being #1. Not sure about Auburn at 2 though.

Like think we'll be a top ten team talent wise. UA, AU, UGA and SCAR will all also be loaded so this isn't the worst place to be in.
