| Tiger Rant|| re: Most overrated LSU opponent heading into 2014 - TigerinSoCal on 7/10/14 at 6:33 pm|
I'd say A&M is the most overrated. I doubt their defense will be any better and the offense will surely drop off a bit. Will be interesting to watch their season unfold and see how quickly all the pundits claim they saw the downfall coming.
Alabama is next from what I've seen regarding losses ...

The answer is no, LSU cannot waive fees. Note the following on the camp page:

I second this! At some point we just have to recognize that Houston is a very good team and got hot at the right time. They must be given a lot of the credit for making the Tigers look bad in the blow out last night. Give 'em credit,...
