Athon Sports has ranked LSU No. 3 in their early SEC predictions behind Alabama and Auburn in the western division. Here is what they had to to say about the Tigers:

3. LSU
2014 Record: 8-5 (4-4)

LSU is just 9-7 in the SEC over the last two seasons, but the talent is there for a rebound in 2015. The passing game is still a major question mark until Anthony Jennings or Brandon Harris consistently beat defenses with their arm. However, until the passing attack develops, the Tigers can lean on a veteran line and running back Leonard Fournette. The defense is under the direction of new coordinator Kevin Steele but should be a strength with the return of cornerback Tre’Davious White, safety Jamal Adams, linebacker Kendell Beckwith and tackle Davon Godchaux. LSU also has a manageable schedule, featuring crossover games against South Carolina and Florida, along with Texas A&M and Arkansas visiting Baton Rouge next season.

1. Georgia
2014 Record: 10-3 (6-2)

Average is good for 1 out of 10 years
This needs to be a 10 win team year in and year out
Too much talent on the team to not get this done

Nobody should be satisfied with average, especially with the salaries our coaches are making.

9-7 is average. That's fine for a while, but some of us would like to see improvement.

"just 9-7" is good. A winning record in SEC games is good. I don't know how you put "just 9-7".
