Last year's team and the final record can not really be used to measure the strength of this team. They had a lot of off the field issues and injuries that factored into those six losses. What that did was allow a very young team to gain valuable experience to supplement the return of several key players. Winning the conference is not out of the question.

TCU was competitive in every one, though, except maybe ISU, when they had their backup QB practicing at RB, until Thursday that week because of Pachall's DUI.

The reason people are optimistic on TCU, is that they were competitive, despite playing a ton of guys who would have normally redshirted. TCU lost 3 starters in the drug bust, their top returning RB to the NFL supplemental, the new RB1 to season ending injuries, RB2 to injuries for most of the season, QB 1 for 9 games, and a handful of other issues. That young team returns almost everyone, gets QB1 and RB 1 back, plus a couple of highly touted transfers at RB and WR.

TCU's leading rusher last year was a true freshman, who was at best 5th on the RB depth chart as of spring 2012.

It's surprising to me how few people have taken the time to look at what happened with TCU's season last year and realize that. With all the things that happened to them, most teams would have collapsed and had a terrible season. TCU remained tough and competitive and were just a few plays away from 9-3 or 10-2 in their first year in the Big XII. They should be very good this year.

That said, they are going down hard on August 31st.

Their only other bad loss (Oklahoma State, I think?) was the week after a heartbreaking overtime loss to Texas Tech, if I recall correctly.

Oh I realize it. However if you look at what we lost last year, including a game changing heisman candidate, an all American tackle, and various other starters to injury, along with breaking in a guy that had hardly taken a snap since 2010, all while finishing with only one loss in the west, I don't see Patterson as being this genius he is made out to be. First season in a decent conference and won 7 games. They just don't scare me if we come prepared and hungry. The media has taken care of the hunger part. Les, Cam, and Chavis will take care of the prepared part.

No doubt we did very well considering the circumstances, other than the bowl game. I think that is the one thing that has people so down on LSU this year. It's a fact that bowl performance has a lot to do with the perception of a team going into the next season. Why we decided not to show up for ours is a mystery to me.

Considering what he had to work with, he did a very good job last year.

Against an unusual amount of adversity, and was very competitive in four of the six losses.

Nobody is scared of them. LSU should win. I think most people think that.

One would hope, but we will really have no idea until we see it. The defense has to replace a lot of people, but our recruiting and past history suggest that that is a manageable challenge for LSU. The offense, as always, is a question mark. A problem that has persisted for five years, I won't believe it's fixed until I see it's fixed.

re: TCU picked to finish 3rd


the biggest problem last season was the predictability of the offense.....too many three and outs and horrible time of possession....if cam can get this offense on the right track and keep the defense off the field some , lsu will have a great season....

re: TCU picked to finish 3rd


The problem with the past 3 seasons is the predictability of the offense, hell.... We didn't even get past the 50 against bama in the BCS.... And every year les miles fails to keep his players out of trouble... My question is.... Has he learned his lesson with Jordan Jefferson and Jared lee?? Will he refuse to put rivers in if mettenberger can't get the job done?? I can't be the only fan who is tired of seeing the same poor coaching mistakes year in and year out.

Mett is our guy. Only way another QB sees the field taking meaningful snaps this year in my opinion is if Mett gets hurt, or if Jennings is so dynamic with his legs that they get him on the field in some packages (ala Perriloux).

If Rivers was the best QB he would be starting. Let's not start calling for the backup already. Mett having a bad outing does not mean he isn't our best option at QB.
