Sports Illustrated Leaves LSU out of list of BCS contenders


Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples, on "Inside College Football" leaves LSU out of the SEC schools that can contend for the BCS Championship; says that only "[f]ive SEC schools (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas A&M) will start next season with either reasonable or semi-plausible national title dreams." LINK

The national media writers aren't giving LSU's players and coaches much respect in their ability to pull it together. Has no-one paid attention to the recruiting classes we've had over the past years, and also not paid attention to the coaching moves?

I'm happy to see things like this. I'd rather the media leave us completely of their lists and let us fly unde th radar instead of saying something like "LSU lost almost a dozen underclassmen, but they are LSU so they will be top 5. Anything less would be a colossal disappointment." I am glad we get to frame this season on our own terms.

Have you not paid attention to the mistakes and blunders that the Head coach has made year after year. He couldn't win a NC with more NFL talent then any team in the country (when you combine the last 2 years) Why do you expect that to change now?

I'd leave us out too. Our offense was sporadic last season and our defense carried us at times. The best parts of that defense are now gone. Are we talented? Of course. But we have alot to prove. I look forward to seeing us prove it.

Change? We WERE a contender the last 2 seasons. That's what the point was. We made the NC game 2 seasons ago and were a contender until late in the season last year. Now whether we have what it takes to do it THIS season...again....that's the question.

They are looking at the schedule. The Baltimore Ravens couldn't win the NC next year with our schedule.

Yes they would. They would beat every team by 40+ points.

Yep. Now we can be happy about pissing away games and watching Alabama win another championship.
