SI jinxed?

Sports Illustrated has the Tigers ranked No. 4 in the nation in its college football preview.

There may not be an LSU fan from Lake Providence to Lake Charles, from Shreveport to New Orleans, who wouldn't take that season. Because a No. 4 national ranking would put the Tigers in the Sugar Bowl for the third time this decade as SEC champions.

That's the good news. The bad news is SI's predictions sometimes flame out. (Wink, wink Phil Fulmer).

And isn't it interesting that SI would have the Tigers No. 4 when the magazine's own Web site earlier this summer pegged LSU as a team that could flop the way Tennessee did.

Again, the polls, the previews, they're all good for stirring up interest - and not much else.

Just to let you know its also possible for LSU to be in the sugar bowl and not be the SEC Champ. If Florida, UGA, TENN go undefeated they will be in Tempe and the SEC Champ. But the most likely scenario is Auburn VS. Florida in SECCG, LSU in the CAP one bowl... hey thats a step up from the PEACH BOWL, atleast its after new years!!
