Also, despite records and head-to-head, I believe LSU was better than UF last year, and I don't expect them to be as good as they were last year. They will again be offensively challenged and have lost several of the studs from their defense.


This is how I feel too. LSU stoned them in the first half, but they struggled to put the game away with a patchwork O-line. Florida was then able to capitalize on some injuries at the linebacker position.

If that game was played late in the season I think LSU wins.

I think that has been changed to "faster first step"...which I also disagree with. Mingo had such a fast first step that he was offsides half of the time.

The writer had a typo. Therefore everything in the article is invalid.

Good write up. Defense is talented but inexperienced, especially on DL. May struggle a bit compared to the last 3-4 years, but if/when DL steps up, the entire defense should get back to "normal."

Offense should be MUCH better than it has been. Too much talent on the field. However, Miles and co. are absolutely terrified of trying to score TDs in the red zone. If you're not going to trust your QB to throw into the endzone this year, then when are you ever going to do so? Of all the shitty production on offense the last few years, this is the absolute worst. LSU blows SEC teams out if they quit settling for fricking FG's inside the redzone

LSU moved the ball pretty well last year between the 20's. The red zone offense was miserable last year.

Sometimes it felt like they just gave up to settle for a field goal...

most other fan bases would credit their coaches for halftime adjustments for that stat. but not here i guess.

Very fair article. I did like their comment about our receiving corps looking like Tarzan but playing like Jane. That has to change, there's too much talent for them to play as poorly as they did last season (except Landry, who was f'n awesome).

Really good article, and they were on the spot on about the X receiver. I always said the biggest key for this offense is a legit deep threat. In 2011, it was Ruben Randle who made defenses pay for stacking the box. We had problems replacing him last year. Hopefully, Landry or one of our young receivers can step up and be a deep target for Mett.

ole miss is definitely a game to watch out for. not because of their team, but because of where they fall on LSU's schedule.

ga lost 8 def starters just like LSU did. But for some reason that does not ever get mentioned. Both ga and LSU will be as good as their defenses are early in the year.

It took them long enough to put it up.


I think LSU was the last team.

Haven't you heard? They always save the best for last!

I found the write up to be spot on. Les needs to stop playing scared in the red zone. Predictability is a killer when you are playing big boy football.

The season will be a success if … LSU wins the national title. Really, what’s left? Alabama and LSU have been arguably the two best teams for the past three years, so the bar is set ridiculously high for the Tigers right now. Perhaps beating Alabama would make the season a success – however, beating Alabama likely means winning the West and the SEC. Outside of having to play Alabama in a national title game again, winning the SEC likely means a national championship. Therefore, even with a tough schedule and turnover on defense, it’s BCS Championship or Bust.


That's what I'm talking about. Win the damn title. Let's go Tigers.

Like the article and he is spot on in many ways but he should have at least gotten Les's record right, 85&21 not 75&18, that was his record before last season started.

In fairness to author and Jimbo, it was his offense run by a "wizard", IMO.
GC's O was something needing an exceptional QB and used by 2nd tier teams that doesn't work vs better SEC Ds.
His system didn't even work well in Big East with Frosh of Year QB.
