LSU will win every game it does not lose, but will lose every game it does not win. I predict somewhere between 14-0 and 0-12. How's that for going out on a limb. :lol:

What I am uncertain about is if you think he has not lost much weight yet or if you think it is not surprising that he has lost a lot. To me, he looks much more fit in this photo than he has in some time.
Not sure about the Biggest Loser comment, either. I haven't watched that show in some time...
