Where's the respect?

Has a team ever entered the season after winning 11 games, winning its bowl game 40-3 (over Miami no less) and had less respect than LSU this season?

Now, don't get me wrong. I can see three losses on the horizon - at Auburn, at Florida and even at Tennessee. LSU could be a good team and still have three or four losses.

But picking LSU to be the wipeout team of 2006 - particularly because of the quarterback situation - doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I'd rather have three QBs who can play than one who can play and two who are garbage.

The latest swipe at LSU comes from Matt Hayes in The Sporting News. Hayes says if he were a betting man "I'd take a look at Arizona. The Cats will scare the bejesus out of LSU in Week 2 - and eventually win eight games.''

OK, maybe they will. Maybe they won't. But I think LSU's chances are much better at home than on the road.

LSU is getting all the respect it deserves. They have rankings as high as 2 and as low as 14 I have seen, and the same can be said about Auburn, Florida, and Georgia. Whats wrong with you LSU Hacks always thinking because you won a split N.C. in 2003 LSU is still the baddest team in the land no matter what. Thats what seperates LSU HACKS from most other SEC fans. Everything is viewed as an insult, or an attack if it is not pro- LSU. It's a personal insult to actually make the trip to Baton Rouge and have the nerve to pull for the visiting team in the eyes of you people. You guys are like a buncha little 10 yr olds, shouldn't ya'll be buying a billboard and running TV ads 10 yards away from the sporting news by now??? GROW UP. AND REMEMBER IT WAS THE PEACH BOWL!! Not even New Years Day. Miami sucked last year let it go!!
