BP25- #8 LSU Tigers
I know they lost their Top 2 QB's and I know they lost their lunch pail guy Hester, and I know they lost Dorsey and Highsmith and 3/4 of their secondary, but LSU is LSU and they have speed for days on this team.
OFF-Jarrett Lee will battle Andrew Hatch to take over for Perrilloux, so expect to see a heavy dose of the run game with Keiland Williams and co. Brandon Lafell and Demetrius Byrd will help out the new QB's and OL has 3 ALL SEC players so other then experience at QB this unit will be solid.
DEF-My man Marlon Favorite now gets the spotlight now that Dorsey left and with Tyson Jackson and Pittman and Jean Francois Jr, this will be the class of the SEC and potentially the NCAA. Darryl Beckwith leads the young batch of LB's but even with the loss of Highsmith I look for this group to improve over last year's numbers. The secondary is very green so they will have to learn quickly, but luckily they don't have a pass heavy team until mid October so they will have time to jell. Watch out for Patrick Johnson-CB.
Schedule- Get your creampuff's here while their hot. The open with darlings of small college App St, who I have heard some people say they have a chance to upset LSU this year. LSU is no Michigan, LSU will pound App st and thier other two tune up teams(UNT and Troy). Conference road games include a trip to Auburn, Florida, S Carolina and close the season at Arkansas. Georgia and Alabama are the only tough games at home. So the road will be tough and the stretch in October At Florida, At S. Carolina and home with Georgia will be the barometer of where this team will go.
