When asked where he thinks LSU will finish in the SEC West, ESPN's Jesse Palmer said the Tiger will finish 5th. Here is what he had to say:
quote:

"[I see LSU] Finishing 5th, behind Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State. I think LSU is going to win nine games this year, but I think they are going to finish 5th in that division. If there were three words I could use to sum up LSU, it would be "young", "talented", but "unproven".
Palmer is definitely not making any friends around here.

Thoughts?

I don't see Auburn or Miss St beating us, so no. If he'd have said 3rd, I might could see where he's coming from, but not 5th.

Explain the math to me. We win 9, which means we lose 3...and finish 5th? Does not add up.

Like his opinion means anything. Every lsu fan here that actually seriously follows the team can make a better assessment then him. So who really gives a shite about his opinion... Lsu is stacked and predicting us behind cowbells, Ole piss , and Auburn is a load of bull shite. We are going to run over teams this year using the ground game... Good luck

If we drop our home games to the Miss schools I will 180 my view on miles. I'm starting to jump on the "Palmer is a fricking idiot" wagon.

We win 10 games. Sneak out Auburn.

Jesse Palmer knows as much about the SEC as he does about picking quality women on the bachelor.

Not so fast my friends, was Palmer trying to describe himself....young, talented??, and unproven????....hummmmm...now if only Herbstreit and Corso would pick us close to the cellar, I think we will have a fine season....

The best commentary to Palmer's prediction is 'no comment'. This is great stuff for LM and his coaching staff to get 'Da Tigers' fired up! I hope all the media idiots pick LSU at 5th.

Game On.....Geaux Tigers

The SEC West is a crap shoot this year. Lsu is not getting much love and I like it.

If he would have bothered to spend ten minutes looking into the Tigers he would see that the losses to the nfl are huge but only leaving the WR positions bare. Even after losing two NFL RB workhorses, the ground n pound will still be elite which will allow the next elite duo of future NFL WRs to get their game up to par. The defense will finally be LSU quality even after losing two young DTs to the draft so the offense won't have to win any shootouts.

When we factor in the nations best staff at developing players, it doesn't take a genius to see that Palmer looks like an idiot making this prediction.

Say AU goes undefeated.
Bama loses to AU and MSU.
MSU loses to AU and LSU.
OM loses to AU and MSU.
LSU loses to AU, OM, and Bama.
We would finish fifth, correct?
