Sports Illustrated released their preseason College Football Top 25 for the 2015 season and LSU is ranked No. 23.

The Tigers were a ranked No. 13 in the coaches preseason poll, which came out last week.

Here is what had to say about LSU:

2014 RECORD: 8-5

After an impressive if inconsistent freshman season—six games with 52 yards or less rushing and five games of more than 100—Leonard Fournette will be one of the nation’s most exciting players. The 6' 1", 230-pounder will be the focal point of coach Les Miles’s offense, especially because the Tigers have yet to determine who will be under center. It helps that LSU has a veteran offensive line and one of the nation’s best young receiving units in 6' 3" sophomore Malachi Dupre, 6' 2" junior Travin Dural and speedy 6-foot sophomore slot receiver John Diarse.

Two 2014 8-5 teams at #2 and #4, and another 8-5 team at number 23. Only real difference in the records, were that those two teams beat the #23 team.

Question, when does having an actual good defense and talent loaded and experienced offense get you ranked 23rd, but a team that loses most of its offensive weapons, has a bad defense until proven other wise, and no given that the new QB will excel rated, #2?

These rankings are perfect!

If you are trying to create web traffic...

If you are actually trying to put out a reasonable product... well then you created toilet paper.

Not sure why they rank us so low but we should definitely be in the top 15.
