People are doubting LSU because of the losses, especially on defense, but most of those guys didn't have a great year in 2012. Minter was the only guy that stepped his game up from 2011 while just about everyone else seemed hungover from the championship run in 2011.
This team's makeup actually reminds me of 2007. 5th year senior at QB, veteran receivers with toughness on the inside and speed on the edges, a veteran o-line, and tough backs. On D we have a veteran front seven with solid corners and experienced safeties. Add in the new blood in this 2013 class and you really have a deep, talented roster of players.
On top of that, LSU could actually lose two games(Georgia & Ole Miss) and still win the BCS chip.
