CBS Sports writer Dennis Dodd, along with Tom Fornelli, Ben Kercheval, Barrett and Sallee all picked LSU as their most "overrated team" in the SEC for the 2017 season.

Here's what they had to say:

Most overrated team:

LSU: Ed Orgeron's honeymoon will last until the final whistle of the first game LSU loses that it's not supposed to. And that will happen at some point. We know Orgeron was a popular -- but second -- choice. There are significant quarterback issues in a league that is getting at that position. Arden Key is a monster but has undergone at least one surgery in the offseason. There's a hiccup for the Tigers out there somewhere. How ugly will it get when it happens? -- Dennis Dodd (and Tom Fornelli, Ben Kercheval, Barrett Sallee)
The other teams that CBS thought were "overrated" in the SEC were Tennessee, Florida and Texas A&M.

However, the Vols and the Aggies were also in their "underrated" list along with Ole Miss, Mississippi State, South Carolina, and Arkansas.

Three CBS Writers projected LSU to finish 3rd in the SEC West, one predicted No. 2 finish and another had the Tigers finishing at 4th in the Western Division.

CBS Sports team looks like a bunch of Nostradamuses after last night's thrashing. 37-7. Ouch! A strong LSU team is good for college football, but the Tigers have a long way to go. They got pushed around on both sides of the ball.

Well, that's it then. No need to play a single SEC game because the predicted order of finish has been determined. God has spoken.

Since they feel this way, is it possible they can commit to not pick up ANY LSU games this year? Those 2:30pm kickoffs kill me

Anything that Barrett Sallee is connected with has to be taken with a grain of salt. If Nick Saban were to stop suddenly, this guy would give him an unexpected direct vision colonoscopy.

He can't be that much of a homer, he picked UGA to win the SEC.

2 teams were picked as over rated and same 2 as under rated. Hard to take these people serious.

How are they overrated when they are picked 3rd in the west, in the pre-season polls? I would think there is a huge possibility of being underrated.

Seems like they picked a lot of SEC teams here. And come on, even with our QB position, any half witted College football fan knows the SEC West is between LSU and Bama. Why does the SEC have a broadcast agreement with CBS? I wish they would switch to FOX. GEAUX TIGERS!!!

"Seems like they picked a lot of SEC teams here" Because they get paid by clicks and by in large, nobody outside of the SEC even cares about CFB right now. So they throw something out there and people click on it. Period.
