LSU will never throw passes up 4+ TDs with less than 7 or so minutes left; just not going to ever happen.
They tried to get him in to run the offense last week, but he fumbled the snap and lost ten yards on the one drive where we were actually trying, and this week our D couldn't get Kent State o...

This year the top 3 SEC West teams are 1-1 against each other.
They are all undefeated against the other SEC West teams.
They are all undefeated against teams outside of the top 2 in the East division.
Yet one of these teams has the West all but locked up.

Because rather than seeing LSU/Bama as a rivalry where either team will win at various times, many LSU fans for some reason view it as a one time competition where its possible for one side to win forever. And they think that happened in January, and now LSU has lost forever.
