[quote]all will be well next year when the top pitching recruit in the nation shows up here. [/quote]
Let's see how things pan out. We've had some pretty damn good pitchers at LSU over the years (Dani Hofer and Rachelle Fico), yet we've only won the SEC West once in recent memory. Hofer got inj...

[quote]Alabama will be returning more talent[/quote]
Disagree. The Gumps will be breaking in a new QB and lost a ton on defense. I think LSU matches up pretty well. Bama was arguably more talented than both Auburn and OU last season, yet lost both of those games.

I like our chances against Bama and Ole Miss at home. Hopefully we'll get them both at night. Auburn on the road will be tough. Just like every other time we travel to the state of Alabama for a game, we'll have to beat our opponent plus corrup...

| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU football - over/under 9 wins this year? - LouisianaLonghorn on 4/9/14 at 9:16 am|
We could win as many as 10 games and as few as 7. I'd be satisfied with 9-3, but I really think that 8-4 is more likely. If we can run the ball well, then it puts less pressure on our young QBs. If our ground game struggles, then we are in trouble. The defense should be much improved as well....
