re: What are the expectations on LSU football?


1. Top 15 finish every year.
2. Be in SECW contention on November 1 of every year.
3. Double digit wins every year. 10-3 is OK.
4. Top 10 recruiting class every year.

re: What are the expectations on LSU football?


Well if you look at:
-money spent by the program.
-recruiting classes
SEC Championship every year or every other year. With a NC win every other year.

If you look at:
-stats
-schedules
-development of players
-coaching record/decisions
10-9 wins a season is expected but the occasional 8 win season wouldn't shock the fan base.

Realistic expectations for next year:
Mother fricking Championship!!!

SEC is taking another huge hit by the draft! LSU won't be plagued as bad as the others.

Compete for the SEC and a bcs bowl every year. Dont lose games like Ole Miss this year,and thats not really expectations that are too high, considering LSU's talent and coaching staff.

Beat Ole Miss and most reasonable people would be completely satisfied this year.

In reality, the expectation is that the TAF continue to support the program. That's it.

If the TAF is unable to keep the fundraising going fast enough, the status quo will not be maintained.

A successful season is normally a big part of that, but if somehow the Tigers were to go 2-9 but the money kept flowing, probably not much would change.

Going forward, be in the playoff picture every year. Be at or around .500 against Bama. Recruit in the top 10 or 15 if we get some bad breaks with guys. Make the playoffs 2-3 times a decade and be in the picture almost every year besides the one crapper year every team has.

If LSU isnt in the top 1-5 every year we want be able to hold serve with those that do.
Think 15, there are realistically 15 (approximation) teams that can win a NC, if you come in 10th in recruiting you are going the wrong way.
Love it when people say we are doing great when we come in 12th out of 120 or whatever, looks good on paper but you are moving away from the teams that will beat you in the playoff.

re: What are the expectations on LSU football?


My long opinion (which is likely TLDR)

SEC West will be down next year with a lot of senior leadership graduating at vital positions. All of the best QBs will likely be gone as well as some VERY good Olinemen from TAMU and Bama.

- TAMU's defense will continue to struggle and without JFF and a depleted Oline may need a year to find itself.

-Bama will lose several top defenders including Clinton-dix and Belue from a below average defensive backfield (for Bama standards), and Moseley in the middle who is a senior defensive leader.

-Auburn will return the best Oline in the conference, but their defense will be swiss cheese with juniors/seniors leaving an already below average defense.

-Actually Ole Miss has a chance next year to win the west for once in a decade. LSU gets OM at home so I will give LSU the edge in that one.

-MSU is MSU and Arky is a question mark

-Florida I don't see that situation improving enough to overcome the loses of some of their great defensive players.

-LSU will likely have a solid back 7 defense and if the dline can come together will be a top 5 defense next year.

-If LSU's QB and WR play is above average and Turner stays or the younger guys fill in well, we can expect a west title IF we can beat Auburn on the road (big if).

My prediction is that LSU focuses early on a tough game against Wisky which helps the defensive front grow up quickly, and like the 2011 season will use it to propel them into a good season with a soft early schedule:

2014 LSU Football Schedule
Aug. 30 vs. Wisconsin, Houston, Texas - (50% chance depending on the dline developing against a good running team)
Sept. 6 Sam Houston State, Baton Rouge - W
Sept. 13 Louisiana-Monroe, Baton Rouge - W
Sept. 20 Mississippi State, Baton Rouge - W
Sept. 27 New Mexico State, Baton Rouge - W
Oct. 4 at Auburn, Auburn, Ala. - (50% on the road against a good Oline, but their defense will lose them some games)
Oct. 11 at Florida, Gainesville, Fla. - W (60% on the road after AU)
Oct. 18 Kentucky, Baton Rouge - W
Oct. 25 Ole Miss, Baton Rouge - W (60% at home but against a very talented team)
Nov. 8 Alabama, Baton Rouge - W (65% if at night, New QB will hate Baton Rouge. 55% day game)
Nov. 15 at Arkansas, Little Rock or Fayetteville, Ark. - W (80%)
Nov. 27 at Texas A&M, College Station, Texas - W (65% with no JFF and LSU's defensive success against most spread style Os)
Dec. 6 SEC Championship, Atlanta, Ga.

10-2 (7-1 or 6-2 in the SEC) and a trip to the SEC championship if they beat AU on the road and go 7-1 in SEC play.

I'm confident next year with another year under CC and more experience in the defensive back 7. Also easier SEC schedule next year since road games against UF, Arky and TAMU are against bad or rebuilding teams. Auburn will be a tough road trip. Bama is Bama and will be a battle, but I think LSU will win at home against a less experienced QB.

I am trying to be realistically optimistic. Of course they could have a very down year if the offense can't overcome losses at QB, RB (Hill likely leaving), WRs and La'el and Trai (if he leaves). But with Cam Cameron and Buga Nation invasion, I think LSU will be fine offensively.

The playoffs will change expectations. Particularly when they are expanded.


Expectations are to be in the top ten right now. Compete for a conference championship every year. When the playoffs start, the expectations will be even higher.

Make the playoffs every year or it was a failure.

Win it every three or four years.

I expect LSU to compete and be in a position to win EVERY big game. No 30 point blowouts like 2008. and I expect to put inferior teams away quickly and thoroughly. No Furman, or Towson, or Troy bull shite. Certainly no Ole Miss catastrophes. I expect to not have to worry about clock management at the end of a game. I expect the team to not get 30 false starts and offsides and personal fouls that kill drives every friggin game. Basically. Well coached, motivated, and disciplined teams. Everything else will fall into place.

re: What are the expectations on LSU football?


mine are to be "in the hunt" for SEC title 3 out of 5 years and winning it every 4 or 5. if you are in the hunt for SEC you are in the hunt for NC or playoff spot.
