Can we still temper our expectation?

First, let me be positive. Our defense played extremely well. I hope the people who were sh*ting on house early lose access to the internet forever.
Oline improved greatly in the second half. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an lsu team make second half adjustments that turned out so well.
Having said that, 6-6 is still a very real possibility for this team. I’m not saying we shouldn’t be feeling optimistic about the long term growth of our players but, some people see a game like that, start thinking we go 10-2, then shite on the coaches and players when they finish out with a more realistic win/loss record.

TLDR: You can feel optimistic about this team but don’t shite on coaches and players when they don’t play to your unrealistic expectations. Expect 6-6 and be pleasantly surprised we even have a chance at a 7-5/8-4 season.

This is a flawed team that plays hard. I expect a roller coaster season in this rebuilding year

What a great mentality for an elite program

Not a single soul should honestly expect 9-3. It’s just not going to happen.

Embrace the positives. Understand that this year is a building block to what will be an extremely bright future.
Focus on the ridiculous amount of young talent we have out there and enjoy the season!

* An elite program who was left in the dumpster after coach O. We will be competing for the west in 2 years.

All of this. I think we will have fantastic highs and some frustrating lows. I am looking at improvements within the game and team not so much the wins and losses. Last night I saw a O line that started coming together. They looked very rough early but was really flexing there muscles late.

6-6 to 8-4

And do something goofy like beat Tennessee and lose to Auburn on the way to one of these 3 records.

They'll have growing pains, but this is going to be an elite program again.

We will contend for the west next year. We might not win it, but we will go into the bama game with the west on the line. Good coaches always have the year 2 jump

I expect to win the next game. Ask me next Sunday what I think of the week after that.

We’re nowhere near elite right now

You literally started a thread on the SEC SB that you think LSU could run the table.

Can we please enjoy a great comeback victory over a quality opponent w/o hearing about how terrible this team is?

When we went up 17-16, I told my friend sitting next to me that Tigerdroppings is going to be pissed if we frick around and win this game.

I was not let down. This place is full of people who are too miserable to enjoy a win when it comes. There always has to be a “LSU won, but…..”.

Man I'm just taking it one game at a time. Crazy shite happens in this league every year.

Auburn just got embarrassed at home. Florida needed a missed FG to escape USF, Arkansas needed to come back to be Missouri State, and A&M is still A&M.

This is just an idiotic post. Did you even read what I put? I was extremely excited about our win last night. I will be extremely excited about our next win as well.
I’m just trying to keep people from bashing coaches because their expectations are irrational. You can be objective and still a fan at the same time.
