What benefit would it be for LSU to pummel SU, and what benefit would it be for SU to be pummeled? Besides monetary.
This, but LSU has played McNeese and NW State. If your play them why not the Jags or SLU for that matter.
I agree it doesn't benefit LSU in anyway. Only way I see it happening is if as has happened in the past. Someone on the schedule backs out at the last minute and LSU is left scrabbling to fill the spot. I would much rather pay a in state school to come to death valley rather than a out of state team. If they are forced to go the 1-AA route.
