| Score Board|| re: Realistic goals for this season? - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 9/20/14 at 8:46 pm|
I assumed LSU would lose at least 2 SEC games. Considering LSU has never won @ Auburn, UF & Arky since the re-formatted schedule in '92, I didn't think this would be the season to break that streak. Actually, it looks like at least of those 2 will be losses. TX A&M isn't rebuilding so that's a likel...
| Score Board|| Realistic goals for this season? - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 9/20/14 at 8:34 pm|
1. Finish at 4-4 in SEC games? Kentucky & Arky seem like the only probable wins. Games @ Florida & vs Ole Miss are toss-ups. Forget about any hope of beating Auburn, Bama & TX A&M.
2. Playing in a bowl game in FL vs a beatable opponent from the Slow 10?...

I was a student @ LSU before political correctness had arrived there. I remember 2 signs on the DKE house during the '90 season. Before the TX A&M game, there was a banner w/ their logo w/ a "e" on both sides of it, spelling "eATMe Aggies". Before the Ole Miss game, they had a pic of Mike the Tiger ...

I'm shocked that a writer from a Left Coast newspaper ranked LSU as #1. There is so much hateful envy among the media toward the SEC out here. I remember another writer for that paper appearing on 1 of those ESPN shows w/ multiple media members back in late Dec '03. That joker was adamant that U$C s...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Name better LSU football comeback EVER! - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 9/2/14 at 11:21 am|
LSU didn't trail by 17 pts if my memory serves me correctly. However, given the circumstances of playing a major conf. opponent on the road to start the season instead of having that team @ Tiger Stadium after a punching bag the week before that w/ fall camp completely disrupted, I'd rate the win W ...
