That came out wrong due to autocorrect.

Once an Alabama player said he looked forward and was excited to play against LSU every year because they didn't have to really practice because every year the Tigers did the same old thing, they didn't change anything. Well this year will be a hell of a lot different because of the offense OC Matt Canada will be implementing and the real fact that Coach O do not fear Nick Saban at all. Look I was a huge fan of Les Miles a really good dude but everybody have to admit after that 2011 Championship game he was intimidated by little Nicky and I don't know why but it's a fact. So with our new offense and our still dominate defense I think that same ol', same ol' LSU football is a thing of the past and we're going to surprise a lot of people this up coming season. So third in the SEC West is definitely a little low if we don't beat Bama then we're finish second no doubt about it and I believe our chances against Bama this year is strong. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN??????????

I don't have a problem with this. It's an improvement from under Miles.

Ho hum....the more things change, the more things stay the same. Bama has the better coach and better players year in and year out. If we ever beat them again while Saban is there it'll be a fluke.

Georgia gets so overhyped every single season.

So Tennessee will finish ahead of USCe but will not finish in the SEC standings?

That looked weird to me too. The division order is a regular ranking of the 7 teams with weighted points. But the SEC Champion list is just one vote each for the overall winner. USCe, Vandy, and Arkansas each had one vote. I don't think that champion list works very well as the consensus for the "overall" finish.

Seems a little optimistic for our assistant coach posing as a HC...

It worked for Les for 11 years.

Sounds about right. I think Ole Miss will surprise some people though. Don't think they'll be dead last. Wouldn't be surprised if they were third and we were fourth.

BS Tigers win the West

This is my prediction except I have a hard time deciding between UF and UGA at the top of the heap in the East. I have LSU losing to Bama, Auburn, and UF.

Ridiculous! Georgia won't get past Florida. Auburn won't beat LSU. And the Tigers will topple the tide in Tuscaloosa! We then skull drag the gators in the SEC Championship en route to the playoffs and a NC for Coach O! Silencing all the critics! Les Miles returns as AD! Why not?

LSU will surprise a lot of people this year. I say this because their no longer handicapped by a lousy coach with an ancient scheme. Geaux Tigers!

You are fake news.

UGA ranked too high. This poll loses credibility instantly placing UGA at #3 overall.

Bulletin Board material for Coach O. Nobody believes in him or his ability to win. Prove the haters, both LSU fans and the rest of the country, wrong!

Lets just buckle it down, lace em up, and play some tiger football. Coach O is going to bring a whole new style of team out onto the field for LSU. I cannot frickin wait. Geaux tigers!

Yes let's go do that. I'm ready to play.
