That's so dumb. If anybody believes LSU is not a top 25 team they are intellectually dishonest. Losing three to the #1 team on the road and having a chance to win every game there and taking 1 out of 3 from the #6 is not what teams not good enough to be ranked do.

This team isn't even close to T25. They'd be lucky to make the tournament.

What about the loss to Southern?

LSU was a top 2 team at one point, so you could argue that losing to unranked Miss St, and every series since means they're not good at all. BTW they lost to Southern this past week.. is Southern top 25?

Find the right 9 now!! What a nightmare sec start. I guess it’s too late to insert Guidry at SS.

Under Guidry so our hitting gets even worse? Seems like the key to a turnaround for sure.

Because we lost to multiple top 5 teams we aren’t a top 75 team. That seems like good logic.

Taking two in Knoxville could begin a run to turnaround things. The errors by our SS and the stranded runners has to stop tho

Jay took away the cell phones, that didn’t work. So what’s next? Here is an idea work on player evaluation and finding better supporting cast of coaches.
