I really want to believe that we will be 11-1 when the season ends but until I see this new, improved, high scoring offense with my own eyes I have serious reservations.

I got news for you buddy, we could role our 2018 offense out there with this 2019 defense and go 11-1.... It's gonna take something slot worse then mediocre offense to screw this year up

Bama's Defense sucks!

This is the year IMO. CEO might get another season or two, but with Burrow leading this talented offense, and key defensive guys returning, this is a must beat Bama year if CEO wants to remain here long term.

I’m guarantee we will be undefeated on 8/30. It’s why they actually play the games. Injuries and poor play can derail what may be a great year. I think this team is very good, looking forward to this season!!

I don't worry too much about predictions one way or the other and usually just enjoy the season one game at a time.

12-0 regular season, book it

so i understand this article is not predicting LSU to go 11-1. However, if they were to go 11-1 with their only loss to Bama, im curious if this means a playoff birth? I guess it depends alot on Notre Dame and Pac 10 champ quality, etc.

Yep and notre dame looks decent with a cupcake schedule

ESPN picked 6 wins last year and was dead wrong. If you're an LSU fan, you should not be happy about this.

Why? We should go undefeated if they always underestimate us.

I’ll take 11-1 any day

I don't think so. The grammar is impeccable and none of the words in the article are misspelled.

But the Gumps only have a 75% chance of winning also

That indicates a 2.8% chance of going undefeated, 8.3% to go 11-1 with the one loss to Alabama.

Undefeated: 2.8% One Loss: 15.5% Two or more losses: 81.7%

Isn't "favoring us to win in 11 games" the same as "favoring us to go 11-1"? LOL this common core math is making some people neurotic.

there are 5 games with at least a 25% or more chance of losing...so think about it - you roll the dice 5x with a 1-in-4 chance of losing, the laws of probability says you probably lose at least 1 of those.

The defense will be tough. What I’ll be looking at is how the offense attacks and how efficient they are in the first game of the season. I think we’ll start out fast and over match Ga Southern. We will load up the middle of the DL and have our LB and S ready to attack the edges. This game should play well to our strengths but I hope they have a very good defense so we have to actually game plan and fight hard to move the ball but we still get it done. I’m expecting a 52-10 type of game. I think this will be Joe Burrows coming out party with his WRs and the passing attack. I expect to see balance also. We may not have crazy numbers on offense simply because of our defense giving us short fields and possibly scoring some points for us as well. 2 TOs minimum lots of YFL.

The Texas game will be a good one. Their QB is good enough to keep them in any game. I think who ever wins the TO battle here wins it. I could see LSU getting all over in the face of the QB and it being hard for Texas to settle in being how their defense is brand new. They have talent though so anything can happen. I’m expecting a 44-27 type of game. Our defense being the factor here and helping us to score 2 TDS. I think we can get 30 points out of our offense driving the ball and the other 14 coming from short fields. If we can start the year like this then we’ll be top 4 headed into the home game with Florida and LSU really dominated them on the field last year, we simply had some bad luck with injuries and in the game period. Things just didn’t go our way. That will change in this game and they lost a lot from that team last year. Mullen hasn’t recruited all that well. We had their QB all bottled up in the first half and then let them gain confidence and momentum for a come back and we still almost beat them. I don’t think it’s as close this time. 34-13 LSU. We will kill Miss State even at their place. 51-14 LSU. Auburn will be our toughest game simply bc they want some pay back. This will be one we will have to hold our breath for. I think it’ll be close. 29-27 LSU blocks their game tying extra point in dramatic fashion and brings it back for an extra point lol. At this point it’ll be #2 VS #3 and LSU will be confident AF but with the addition of the HOF coach we’ll stay grounded but know this is it, it’s our time. LSU wins it 34-31 on a last second FG similar to Auburn in 2018. We slaughter OM 56-17. We handle up on Arky 50-10. The A&M game will be another close one. They just make plays when they need them. 35-33 LSU. We go 12-0 with Ed O and he puts a huge smelly proverbial sock in the mouths of all LSU fans that have hated on him the last two seasons. National recruits take notice, see the offense has changed, the defense when talent and depth is there can be lots of fun and we finished the class strong and off to the races for 2020. Now LSU is in the conversation as one of the premier schools in the country again. One can dream can’t he? Really I think we slip up somewhere but I honestly believe this offense will be loads of fun to watch. If you look at all the things that played against us last year and we still almost beat Florida and A&M at their place with Burrow saying himself that he was just making plays within this offense plus the injuries that plagued us all year and the depth we will be adding. I’m telling you guys, this will be a special season. I think Ed O sees it and is why he brought a HOF mentor to help him with the possible success and possible let downs we may have because it’s football and things happen.

LSU has a zero percent chance of winning in Tuscaloosa on Nov.16. Smh

LSU has beaten Bama in Tuscaloosa in recent history more than it has in Baton Rouge. Gump.

He's right. LSU won't even BE in Tuscaloosa on Nov 16. We will be in Oxford.
