I look at it as another team that will keep from the NC like this year.
If you're saying LSU won't get to the BCSCG next year because they didn't get RSJ, then I laugh at you.
If you're say LSU will lose to A&M next year because they got RSJ, I laugh at you.
Not meaning to disrespect him but LSU will be better next year with or without RSJ. Just this morning, A&M's Heisman winner admitted LSU was the toughest defense they faced this year.
With Mett's improvement, talent coming back on the OL and LSU getting a couple of receivers they should have had in 2012, I look for the offense to be even better than it was for the last four games of 2012. The defensive backfield will be much more stable which will allow Chief to go back to the tight man defense LSU played through the beginning of the season.
2012 wasn't the year for a BCS run & The Tigers still won 10 games. Championship expectations will be warranted in 2013. Feel free to quote me on that.
