Stupid thread is stupid.
Playing for an SEC Championship is the only thing within the control of this team and its players every year. The ONLY thing they can control on the field. Everything else is dependent upon pollsters and computers.
An SECW title and an appearance in the SECCG is a goal of every LSU team at the beginning of each season.
Not wanting to play in it because we might not win or play in a good bowl game is the sign of a loser.
And i guarantee it has never entered the minds of a single coach or player.
