the tournament started the next year in 1936, but LSU would have been the favorite against anyone they played in a hypothetical 1935 tournament.


In 100 years, every football championship to date will be like the 1935 one for LSU.

Well, despite the general opinion of me, I wasn't around in 1935.


And therefore it didn't happen? This attitude is all too prevalent in those under the age of 25, but not you!

I didn't say that. I just meant I wasn't aware of it.

I'm very surprised that UF has not won one in baseball


Only 3 SEC schools have won the CWS: Us (6x), USCe (2x), and UGA (once).
