There should be a decent showing for LSU considering how small their stadium is. I think the NorCal Alumni Association is more football oriented, but they sent out an email so they should get some people out. I have a few friends who will be in attendence that bought their tickets individually. It w...

Florida seems beatable considering recent close games at home against Auburn and on the road at Vandy. Not saying we'll win and getting blown out of the water is a definite possibility, but this team plays well when inspired and they'll definitely be up for that game so I'm hoping for the best. ...
