I didn't say ANYTHING about 2011 as a whole. What I did say was Miles screwed the pooch in the NC and if THAT team didn't win a NC, what makes you think this upcoming one will in 2013? I actually was paying 2011 a compliment.
Bolded two parts are contradictory. If you are paying 2011 a compliment then you must be talking about the year as a whole - not the NC game.
The LSU squad in 2010 and 2012 were elite teams and didn't win either.
Disagree on that and I suspect you do as well - they never put it together and were therefore not elite. I suspect you mean that they had elite talent. In that respect I agree there were talented players but in 2010 the team was too young and in 2012 the team lost too many players (esp OL and weed loving small mammals) at the start of the season.
2013 is a tough schedule and if A&M, Bama, Florida, and UGA are great teams 10-2 will be a solid result. But if LSU puts things together (esp holds serve at home and beats Bama on the road) they could finish 11-1 or even 12-0 and should set their expectations at that level.
