| Tiger Rant|| re: Off the cuff thoughts about the Outback Bowl... - noladan on 12/8/13 at 8:44 pm|
I said before the announcement that I wanted to play Michigan because they would have been an easier opponent for us.
I actually think you guys are a bad match up for us. A physical offensive line that can run the ball gives this LSU defense problems.
On the flip side I was hoping our young Q...

It does seem that way. I do think that LSU is an easier sell to the networks, all things being relatively equal, than say S Carolina or Missouri. But obviously we're not competing against them for a spot......Obviously we're not beating out JFF , but in most years we...

I agree with you that this a real possibility. In fact I could see A&M with Manziel being more highly coveted even with the extra loss. But I do think the SEC does try to influence the bowl selections as much as possible. And I think they would at least try to get LSU the i...

Yeah @Lubbock won't be easy. Texas Tech has losses to Alabama, Arizona and Pitsburgh. Their best win is probably Houston. They're 6-3 overall.......Just guessing but they're probably comparable to a mid level SEC team.

Yeah, I really think Missouri is a bad match up for Auburn. Add to that the fact that Auburn had by far the more emotional game this week and I think Mizzou is the clear play here.
I'm pulling for Auburn though....
