Thanks for the love Herbie..... But seriously, if we continue to trot out a spread quarterback (BH) to run a pro style system then the results will be the same as last.

same QB, same OC, same HC. Same results probably.

"LSU has superior athletes at every position over Clemson except one. Anybody wanna take a guess at which position that is?"

Until Les adapts his offense, it's not gonna happen. Remember Herbie also had LSU ranked as his #1 for a while earlier this season.

It's because Lsu is loaded and should be top 3. But if we run the same 15 plays every game we will lose 3 games again.

We have better talent to run what Clemson is doing. Watson is really good am obviously proven to be better than Harris at this point. But that system is what Harris would excel in. We have a better line and better skill positions players. But instead we are gonna trot out 3 tight ends and play inside a phone booth.

Rant over.

He's basing it off of 9 returning starters on offense and defense, as of now. And the #1 recruiting class in the nation.

What is with Herbie's love for LSU?

On paper its not a bad call. We return one of the most talented teams and have some substantial depth at the important positions.

Unfortunately going undefeated/1 loss takes a lot more than just talent.

Hopefully this team gets hungry.

this is a little ambitious. I'll take it.

I see he is still trying to make up with Les over the "Miles to Michigan" saga.
