LSU vs Georgia 2003 is what got LSU into Elite status
(Posted on 9/26/13 at 5:09 pm)
in college football. Still one of my favorites games I've ever attended. Not only was it the loudest since 2007 Florida, but the game was at 2:30. A time when all LSU fans hate because less drinking and hating day games. Yet it was one of the loudest and most fun times I've ever had. I remember thinking that every year we always lose an early game which lessens our chance for a NC. If only we can beat Georgia the rest of the way looks real good. Once Skylar Green caught that ball we didn't know it yet but put LSU in place where it is today.
That is when LSU fans knew how to party. The things I saw that friday and Saturday you will never see again do to more police and just more respect for the opposing fans.

Oh no doubt.
Just funny remembering how big of a deal it was when the polls came out the next week and we had cracked the Top 10. We finished 2001 ranked 7 I think, but the week after UGA was the first time we actually played a game as a Top 10 team in a long time.

It's all about the scoreboard, but they were all over us in the first half. They consistently had to settle for field goals though (credit our RZ D). Normally sure-footed Billy Bennett missed a bunch - 3 or 4 from my memory.
