Win 40 games in baseball
And go to the post-season in all three.
We did finish 3rd nationally in Gymnastics and 3rd in Golf, and nearly every athletic program we have made the post-season.

| Tiger Rant|| IMO a big key to the success of LSU in 2014 will be - MetryTyger on 1/8/14 at 3:11 pm|
the offensive line, not necessarily who plays QB.
If we have a dominant O-line next year, we should have a monster running game.
Hill and Magee are proven commodities. Then you throw in the best prep player in the nation in Fournette and the 2nd best running back in Louisiana in Williams.

Ten CFB programs have at least 2 BCSNCG appearances, and 4 of them are SEC: Bama, Auburn, LSU and Florida.
(USC, Miami, FSU, Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio State).
3 programs have 3 appearances (2 SEC) : Ohio State (1-2), LSU (2-1), and Alabama (3-0).
Only 2 CFB programs have 4 BCSNCG appearances ...

the SEC would be 6-1 right now and the board would have had more of an SEC chest-bumping feel to it today.
Actually I wouldn't have been upset if that had happened. Everyone expected it too, to be honest.
