Southern Nevada respect

I don't want to hear any LSU fans complaing about lack of respect in football for awhile.

LSU will go into Friday's game at Little Rock, Ark., as a 1-point favorite over Arkansas.

The Tigers are favored 1) on the road, 2) against a top-five team, 3) against a team with a 10-game winning streak, 4) the SEC West champions and 5) a team that has lost once in Little Rock under Houston Nutt.

I'd say the oddsmakers in Las Vegas have quite a bit of respect for the Tigers.

In fact, the same thing happened earlier in the year when LSU played at Tennessee.

Rail at ESPN and AP voters all you want, but in Vegas, they like the Tigers' chances.
