LSU will always be 1 or 2 in the west there could be a year where MSU or aTm has a great year and we have an off year, but they won't be consistently better then us. We will be.
Will this occasional off year be next year? State will definitely remain marginal.
But I've accepted the fact that Texas A&M is about to undergo their exciting program transformation like we did in 2000.
I don't see how anyone can feel otherwise. Their potential as a program is sky high.
They are the only SEC program in the state of Texas, with the Horns stuggling. We used to be the destination for Texas kids that wanted to play in the SEC, now they've taken that over.
They have the money. They have the facilities. They have the game day atmosphere. They have a head coach who runs an exciting, innovative offense and produced a freshman Heisman trophy winner in year one.
Would RSJ have even considered A&M five years ago?
He witnessed LSU beat the Ags in College Station, AND got to witness TS at its absolute finest from the sidelines in the Bama game, and STILL decided to sign with them. We still have Louisiana and I don't think they'll make major inroads, but it's silly to say that A&M is not about to be on par with LSU, considering they're about to have their pick of Texas recruits, as much or more than we do in Louisiana.
Best case scenario for LSU, this becomes similar to the Auburn rivalry in the 2000s where homefield advantage is the deciding factor almost every year.
