After Jan 9th, 2012, this place became almost unbearable. Terrible BCSCG, a couple recruiting failures, and a 2012 regular season that failed - albeit not by much - to live up to the lofty preseason expectations.
However, in these recent weeks, all of us are seeing some very positive momentum building for the LSU football program, and I'm glad the vast majority of the fans seem to be excited about the future of LSU football. It's amazing to me that Miles always finds a way to "reinvigorate" the fan base when it would be very easy for this program (or any program for that matter) to go flat/stale when its head coach enters his 9th season.
Kudos to the staff for putting together yet another elite recruiting class and kudos to Miles and the adminstration for snagging Cam Cameron. It certainly seems that if LSU can get incremental improvement and execution on the offensive side of the ball, LSU's consistent dominance of this conference is poised to continue. This is a program that has gone 22-2 over the last two regular season (that's an 11-1 average), and that's with an anemic - and sometimes even downright shitty - offense. Just imagine what LSU could do if we get merely a 10-20% improvement on the offensive side of the ball. The addition of Cameron and the potential for him to help Mett in his final season, coupled with the great QB haul in this class with Rettig and Jennings waiting in the wings, the next few years could definitely be exciting in Baton Rouge.
I'm pumped about the future, and I hope everyone else is as well.
(FYI, in case you missed it, ticket reserves for the 2014 BCSCG at the Rose Bowl went on sale last week. I got 6 for LSU at $45 each! LINK
