Baton Rouge was like a ghost town. I remember all the radio shows people were not mad, they were sad. It was like a funeral.
The beginning of this season is eerily similar. In 1998, LSU started highly ranked, beat a couple of weaklings, beat Auburn fairly comfortably, and went into the Georgia game ranked #6. Sound familiar?
The difference is this: that team completely blew up, and went 1-7 the rest of the year. Be as negative as you want, cry woe is me about the state of our defense, but understand that we are in nowhere near as much trouble now as we were then. This program is too strong for that.
