The narrative of LSU being a ‘One Hit Wonder’
Mark Packer from ESPNU mentioned some interesting stats that he himself came up with to dispel the notion that LSU was a one hit wonder.

One, LSU was tied with Clemson with the most wins against top 25 opponents over the past five years.

And two, which surprised me a bit, LSU was ranked FIRST in regards to the wins against top 10 teams over the past five years.

Something to ponder for those who think LSU will just fade back to mediocrity after this incredibly special year.

Packman also said that anyone who thinks that is an idiot or totally biased

Well Clemson doesn’t have to worry about ranked teams till the playoffs. LSU probably plays more every year in their own division

It's not that far fetched when you think about. LSU beat more top 10 teams in this season alone than Clemson will play in 3-4 seasons combined.

Agreed, but what was most surprising to me is that over that five-year span we even topped Bama with wins against top ten teams.

We have 3 titles since 03, we consistently win. We might not always be the best, but have been a really good team for 20 years. In any other conference we average 11 wins over that time frame. We have a 4th title if we play anyone but alabama in 11. Our facilities are top of the podium and our nfl history is too. It’s crazy to even think “one hit wonder” with this program.

Who are so many lsu fans still looking for validation? We're the gd undefeated undisputed kings of college football.

Everyone else's job is to try and tear us down. Scoreboard is a mf.

We're claiming 1908 too bc well, fu.

re: The narrative of LSU being a ‘One Hit Wonder’
The arguments to diminish what LSU accomplished this year are all equally ridiculous.

The same people saying “one-hit wonder” will tell you that Alabama has carried the water for conference and that everyone else is riding their coattails.

Nevermind the fact that the SEC has won 13 of the last 24 titles, that 5 different teams have won a championship in that span, 3 won multiple titles (4 if you count Auburn’s undefeated 2004 team), and 6 different SEC teams have played in the championship game over the last 21 years.

LSU has more championships since 1996 than anyone except Alabama and Florida (with whom we are tied with 3 each), and more since 2003 than anyone but Bama.

We also play in the toughest division in football, have Florida (who is tied with us for 2nd with 3 titles since ‘96) as our permanent East opponent, and play 3-5 teams every year during the regular season that would be playoff caliber teams if they played in any other conference.

It’s SEC and LSU penis envy at its finest. I choose to relish it.

ETA: One more thing, those same people will try to argue that USC was the “co-champion” in 2003. That’s fine. Everyone has opinions. However, that opinion is invalid unless they claim Auburn as “co-champion” in 2004.

People who argue these things are complete idiots with no sense of logic or reason, and/or are severely butthurt. Like, need to go to the ER butthurt.

Five 2019 SEC teams would have been in the playoffs with Clemson’s schedule.
