Enough with the bitching
. Schedules even out over time and the SEC is not out to stymie LSU. People are forgetting that UT beat Alabama straight for a decade before the recent reversal and Bama is just coming off of their serial rotations with UGA, USC, and UF in recent years.
Also, unlike the 1990's LSU's annual rival, Florida hasn't been some consistent juggernaut. Over the last 10 seasons (2002-2012) they had seasons of 5 or more loses five
times. They do not present some insurmountable obstacle to LSU, and Alabama also played them half a dozen times since 2005 when they did become better under Urban Meyer.
The scheduling issues also clearly play a much bigger role in the East then in the West. Who plays LSU and Alabama had been a much bigger determinate of how things play out rather then anything on the West.
