Is that really a bad thing?
I would like em spaced out evenly. While you're still trying to figure out positions, pitching rotations, etc in the beginning of the season, it'd be nice to give your best shot at some of the better teams. Now I understand that other teams are going through a similar process, but still, for LSU to have to face most of their tougher competition up front, I have to think that doesn't set them up favorably for post season play. Having your set lineup tested against the top teams sparingly late in the season gets your prepared IMO.
