and when LSU pitches Nola we have only lost one game.
I'll say this records are records they are fun to talk about, but when it comes down to it in the end it comes down to what happens on the field. LSU is better then UCLA we should win.
but let us review those last 4 times
2009 LSU beat Virignia (won the naitonal championship that year we were better then UV 2008 LSU lost to UNC (I think they were the best that year) 2004 LSU lost to miami (#3 national seed) 2003 LSU lost to CSF (LSU was higher ranked but CSF was #7 national seed)
now lets talk before those years
2000 LSU beat texas (texas wasn't a national seed) 1998 LSU beat USC (the eventual national champion) 1997 LSU beat Rice (was a national seed) 1996 LSU beat Wichita State (I think a national seed 1994 LSU lost to FSU (had the best record coming into omaha, LSU went two and BBQ that year) 1993 LSU beat LBSU (LBSU won three straight games after loosing the if necessary game to LSU) 1991 LSU beat Florida 1990 LSU beat The citadel (Stoney brook of the 90s) 1989 LSU lost to Miami (Miami was always a strong team back than) 1987 LSU beat FSU (FSU had 54 wins coming into the CWS) 1986 LSU lost to Loyola Marymount (LSU's first appearnce in omaha, same with LMU)
so LSU in opening round games is
9-6 a .600 winning percentage in opening rounds.
if you take out that 1-3 mark
LSU is 8-3
out of those 6 losses only 2 teams were not as good as LSU, 4 of those times the team we played was better than us.
LSU is maybe the best team in omaha right now.
the game on the field will determine this not how we have faired in the past.
frick you. Just wanted to get that out of my system early so i can enjoy the rest of this beautiful day in which we will whoop some bruin asses and your trolling arse gave me the opportunity... So thanks and
