Losing to the eventual national champion every year is no consolation. We are supposed to be an elite program and elite programs wins championships when the going is good. This is supposed to be the golden era of LSU football and I can't help but think we've let at least one NC, possibly two, get away from us. So close yet so far every year. Damn frustrating.
The going is good for a lot of teams that happen to play much weaker competition and still don't have much to show for it. It sucks playing the schedule that LSU plays and being in the same division as a future hall of fame head coach. And yes, LSU is an elite program.
