I don't bet much but this has to be the surest sure thing ever?!?! right?
Vandy has only scored 10 in two games!
They only put up 7 against TEMPLE.. friggin Temple! and 3 against Ole Miss. If you could stand to watch that game for more than 12 seconds you'd see ...

The offense is flat out explosive. The only weakness, MAYBE, is the lack of a premiere running back, which could be an illusion at this point. Don't know.
I understand that it's bad practice to compare apples to oranges.. but South Carolina only scored 5 more points against East Carolina than the...

I wasn't sold on Dural since he played such a limited role with Landry and OBJ around, but he's fast with great hands.
Diarse was an unknown, but he looks VERY capable with a high potential for yards after catch.
I'm pretty excited about Quinn. He's got attitude and the talent to back it up. He sh...

I was pretty happy with Jennings too.
He needs to work on his awareness and decision making. For example, there was one seemingly botched play where he rolled out to the right and just took a 8 yard sack head on when he was well ou...

I agree, but I can see it both ways.
To me, "fight" means playing inspired and reaching your potential. When this happens there isn't a team in the country that could beat LSU.
We could have the ...

College baseball and basketball both have enormous fields (compared to 4 teams) so the committee has a good chance of getting the best team in and then letting it play out. You can be biased all you want towards one team, but it isn't going to keep another equally worthy team out....

Not one pass on the first drive which ended in 7 points courtesy of Jennings and Hill.
Not sure why we're worried about Wisconsin.
It'll be a matter of who can make more stops. The LSU defense is going to be much more stout than Wisconsin's.
If dumb penalties and turnovers are kept to a minimum i...

We'll leave out the fact that you have played (maybe) 3 teams in those 5 years with our talent, and have lost to all 3 by 7, mainly because the past is irrelevant.
We'll just say this would be, by far, Wisconsin's signature win in the past 5 years.
And you would be shocked by a 7+ ...

I get what you're saying, but this mentality is what fuels the "48-17 crowd"..
