re: SI’s Mandel - LSU dominated TCU (Posted on 9/2/13 at 3:11 pm to bdnc)

I think that's mostly due to LSU's performance in last year's Peach Bowl. LSU basically dominated the first half, and looked set up for the 2nd when two things happened. Clemson started taking advantage of LSU's freshmen seconary, and LSU's OL forgot how to pass block. It's not like Clemson blew the doors off of LSU or anything.
But now that Clemson has also beaten UGA, look for LSU's cred to improve.
I think Clemson's on to something, and if people look back to last year, LSU lost to a good UF team, the MNCs and Clemson.
I would like LSU's chances against Clemson at this point.
