They don't know that Garret Nussmeier, a first round talent with elite arm talent will be the starter at QB. They don't know that the OL will be significantly better and a lot deeper. They don't know that the tight end room will be significantly better. They also don't know that the running back room is elite, and they don't have a clue about LSU defensive secondary.

Hence, everyone is sleeping on LSU big time. Nonetheless, there isn't a football team in America that will make a bigger splash and more waves this season other than LSU.

Surprise, surprise, surprise.
Go back and watch our bowl game last year. I wouldn’t rank this team if Lord Saban was coaching.
Sure things are looking much better. However, LSU still a huge unknown.
Let the season develop and then look at the rankings.

Lol. Yeah that bowl game with half the roster out and a qb that hadn’t taken a snap since high school 4 years earlier, was more important than playing Bama to the wire on the road, and beating A&M with a depleted roster.

Rankings don’t mean anything and we shouldn’t care about them until the end of the season.

Half the teams on there limp away with 5-6 losses if they played our schedule.

It should be obvious that this is a big FU to Brian Kelly by the media
