I don't see this as a pattern that will continue to repeat itself. There was a lot of luck involved.
The LSU Class of 2001 went a long way to starting something big at LSU. You can say the same things about the Bama classes on 2008 and 2009. The moral being, you don't need 3-4 recruiting classes to get there anymore with scholarship limits.
Hopefully, Ole Miss becomes a legitimate rival again. I know the games are always close and they do win their share, but the stories my dad told back in the 60's was pretty much LSU and Ole Miss were 1-2 in the conference (and sometimes the Nation).
If Alabama, Auburn, Texas A&M, LSU, Ole Miss, State and Arkansas can all recruit well, then winning the West will really mean something down here, just not nationally! Face it, we all hate each other and its more fun when you have the year where everything lines up for you and can get some big time payback.
Alabama is still a cut above everyone else, but maybe it won't just be LSU being the only team who can take them down. And before you say 'but Texas A&M did it' just check who played Alabama the week before that game.
