One thing I have learned to love about Coach O, he loves to be underrated. As a person, as a team, it is his nuclear fuel.

Bama will be back this season but Gators may go undefeated. Tigers will not have the guns until 21

How do our win loss #s not add up to 12?

I’m guessing it’s the fractional percentage of the chances we play in the SEC-CG / playoffs. That’s all I got.

all of these things are meaningless. Play the games on the field - then we’ll know. Ignore this nonsense.

With respect to the ESPN FPI, it has never been even close to being accurate and in fact, it has always been a complete and utter joke. Indeed, anytime I hear anyone reference ESPN's FPI, I immediately lose all respect for that individual.

The ESPN FPI is and has never been anything other than junk science. As it has always been the least accurate measurement of LSU's strengths and weaknesses ever since ESPN introduced that garbage. Indeed, every time I hear someone say ESPN's FPI says, I grimace and roll my eyes. As all it does is discredit ESPN as the self-anointed arbiters of college football. If I was ESPN, I'd get rid of it because all it is, in reality, is a source of embarrassment for ESPN.

I don't know, but we were #3 after beating Clemson.

Essentially the same. But LSU was ranked #4 according to the metric in the 2019 preseason. So it’s not like the metric was THAT far off.

1) How do you play 12.6 games? 2) I personally move Florida, LSU, and maybe Auburn above Georgia. Nothing against UGA, but they are where LSU was for awhile. They need to prove that they can actually live up to preseason hype. I think Florida is definitely going to be better than Georgia this season.

1) It adds up to 12.2... 2) It’s accounting for the possibility of the SEC Championship game

So we lose to Florida and Alabama?

Same metric that still didn't have LSU as the #1 after that incredible season. Yeah I'll just use it as a barometer.

People say this, but can you prove it? I remember seeing the opposite

Brought to you by the same people that tell us how many hurricanes there will be each year. Rarely close to ever being right.

Who does UGA have at QB? Alabama returns Jones who has been mainly used in mop up duty with the exception of last year...we'll see how he does as a starter. We have Myles who has done the same as Jones with less games played. Just seems like there's a lot of unknowns at this time.

They have a new guy that's experienced and talented. Expected to be a first round pick next year, but so was Fromm. Fpi picked our games pretty well in 2018

Well, UGA has JT Daniels now which is an upgrade from Jake Fromm.

that's probably about how it looked last year. it's amazing how people will continue looking at the same incorrect stuff year after year for decades.
