Not totally. We have talent on this team, yes. But this year, and based entirely on the numbers of injuries, penalties, and drop-off in play execution, which translated into what looked like unnecessary struggle games and 2 losses, my impression of this year's LSU team is one of two (or both) possibilities:
1. They were under-coached.
2. They underachieved.
As weptiger said along this same thread so very well:
"2 losses and too many close games against weaker teams left voters with the impression that this is an average LSU team."
