Win it and the Swag is back, and optimism will reign.
Lose it and the gloom and doom will swamp the LSU culture.
I am optimistic by nature. I am a "Les Miles guy". I celebrate wins, and shake off losses. I view LSU through the prism of JOY,
have followed it as the single great passion of my life since I was seven years old. I went to games with my Pops and late brother as a wee lad. I went to The Prince Murat on Nicholson with my allowance money to watch the pay per view game against Bama in 1982.I wept when we beat Oklahoma for a BCSNC in 2004. I lived on the LSU campus for five years of my life and know every inch of that campus. I tailgate and socialize with people I went to school with. I bring my children and teach them the dying PERSONAL ETHIC
of making noise, supporting LSU and staying until the very last play of the game.
That said, this game is a harbinger of things to come. We either right the ship, punch them in their arrogant-redneck faces or we get our arse beat and take a seat in the third row next to Georgia and Oklahoma. Period.
Either way, in two weeks, WE FIND OUT WHO WE ARE.
