Top 5 Golden Horeshoes in LSU History?

Since we have everybody bringing up all the times LSU got screwed, how about we turn things the other way around when LSU lucked its arse off and got something they didn't deserve.

REVISED LIST AFTER RESPONSES

1. Final weekend of 2007 season: The day begins with Les Miles going to Michigan. The day ends with LSU winning the SEC, jumping 5 teams in the polls, and getting a spot in the NC.

2. 1986 NCAA Tournament: Arguably didn't belong in the tournament, but got to play first two games at home. Leads Dale to his second Final Four.

3. Ole Miss 1972: The Day That Time Stood Still

4. Bluegrass Miracle: Wouldn't even have happened if Kentucky doesn't call a stupid time out with 11 seconds on the clock

5. Auburn 2005: LSU wins after Auburn misses 5 field goals

5B. Tennessee 2010: LSU bailed out on the last play of the game because Tennessee had 13 players on the field.



What else?

The entire first Saturday of December 2007. We woke up and thought we wouldn't have a coach the next day instead the entire universe aligned and we went to the BCS National Championship.

I don't remember the details but there was a Vandy game in the 90s when they scored at the end of the game, got like two personal fouls on the PAT, had to kick like a 35 yard extra point, missed, and lost by 1.

2007 is EASILY the luckiest thing that has ever happened to LSU football. Lose the last game of the regular season, start the day at #7 in the BCS, have LSu jump Va Tech and UGA, and have WVU lose to fricking Pittsburg. There is nothing that can trump that. yeah the Bluegrass Miracle was great and lucky as hell, but that didn't actually mean anything in the grand scheme of things.

We still would have beaten USC.

How many kicks did John Vaughn miss in that 05 Auburn game?

Seriously though was the 07 Natty not the greatest horseshoe ever?

we blocked an extra point to beat vandy 7-6 in 1997. that vandy team had one of the best defenses in the country that year believe it or not, and that was also the game cecil collins broke his leg

5! Can you believe five fricking field goals that guy missed in one game? And he was supposed to be one of the top kickers in the country too.

The luck in the Bluegrass Miracle was that Kentucky called a TO and didn't let the clock run down to 3 seconds. It should have never happened.

Idk about that one. David pollack did a segment questioning this and made that bounce pass like 10/10 times to whoever was cohosting....

You bring up the 7-6 Vandy game as a lucky win but it was one of worst losses in history as Cecil Collins got hurt that game and the rest is history.
