Anybody know why the espn3 stream of this game will NOT be subject to any blackout?
I don't understand when an SEC game streamed by espn3 is subject to a blackout (most all the time, seems to me) and when it is not.
Thanks for any info on this. :bow:

It means he believes there is still a chance at this point, that we will make it into the tourney field.
It also means he thinks right now, that we have enough talent to win some big games the rest of the way out.
That's all it means, nothing more.
Ask him again after we play 4 or 5 more g...

Most people who travel back for "Homecoming Festivities" don't give a frick about the football game, so keep giving them a rent-a-win.
It makes them happy, and it leaves the meaningful games to true Tiger football fans.

LSU at Notre Dame 1970
Was in school, and several of us drove to South Bend without tix. Got tix at stadium. Sat in end zone where ND kicked winning field goal.
We beat them entire game. As I recall, we missed two field goals. Notre Dame only got past mid-field once and made their only fg try....

Main point is we have been in contention a lot, and we should be able to fix this single issue.
The sky is not falling, and we have a great coaching staff!
The LSU program is alive and well.

Bama at LSU, 2012
Clemson, Chic Fil A Bowl 2012
At Georgia, 2013
At Ole Miss, 2013
If we had stopped Bama at the end last year, we would have played in the SEC Champ and maybe even won another BCS title.
If we had stopped UGA and Ole Miss a...

Plus, by going old school smashmouth, Miles challenged our weakest areas, O-line and Defense to step up big time.
Those guys were light years better tonight, maybe because Miles and his coaching staff put the game on their shoulders and challenged them to get the job done.

Doesn't matter what our chances are to win out.

As long as we find a way to win, our defense can keep getting better.

He threw pinpoint passes over TM7 and Eric Reid and made them look like rookies.
Moved Bama into field goal range all night long, and that was all he needed to secure the w and the BCS title.
