Tragic plane crash involving OK state before a loss to Iowa State that allowed bama to play "the mulligan" - even though they still shouldn't have.
Remember when CLM was humorously noted as having a pact w the Devil b/c of all the incredibly "good" things happening to the LSU football program:
Winning BCS title in 2007, beating 'Bama consistently (w Saban in charge), etc. Seemed like he could do no wrong.....
Fast forward a few years and we have Nick the Prick running the show winning consecutive BCS titles, racking up #1 recruiting classes, and getting every conceivable break in the provrebial book on his way to national titles left and right. Now Saban is head of the class and standing on top of the mountain like no one has done before him. Is the tide about to change in Miles favor again? I believe so....
Miles has an experienced and talented senior QB entering the season, had yet another talented and great recruiting haul, and added pro-talent offensive coordinator to go with the Chief on the other side of the ball. Also, everyone is expecting Ala. to blast through their SEC scheduled and represent again in BCS title game. Not so fast my friends.....
LSU is still the team to beat and finally with an offensive game plan hopefully sprinkled with surprise/unconventional calls every game the Tigers will again be the best of the best in 2013.
The tide is turning. Geaux Tigers!
The Tide is turning
It's silly to think there isn't an enormous amount of luck involved to win a national championship.
Yep, but you have to count LSU's great luck too if you are going to play this game.
We had some amazing luck with having some good teams lose to crappy teams to allow us to win our last two championships.
