Looking forward, the potential for AtM with Sumlin at the helm is staggering. With the recruiting base, the money, and the passionate fan base, all that place needed was the coach. Of course, they have to show that they can continue the momentum, but considering what they did in the toughest division in college football with a new staff and true frosh QB, I expect them to get better and better.
I think LSU will struggle to maintain its #2 status.
I disagree with everyone's apparent belief, including Miles, which is that we are destined to play second fiddle to Alabama. If we would have come out with a little imagination and not play and call plays like huge pussies, we should have won all games against Bama as well as other key games that we've dropped. Since fear of Alabama is palpable for coaches and fans and we've been stuck in a rut since 2007, I think LSU should be concerned that it's ability might be on the decline while other programs trend upwards. With the talent on the team, however, settling for anything but the best from the players and the program is inexcusable and playing scared should not be an option.
