Early football outlook

I'm amazed at some of the early outlooks for LSU in 2007.

This is a team that is losing its starting quarterback, two solid receivers, an All-American safety, maybe an All-American defensive tackle and another starting safety, as well as some other seniors.

And yet there is seemingly no ceiling for this team.

In The Sporting News' look ahead to 2007, the Tigers are ranked third in the nation behind USC and Florida. TSN has three SEC schools in its top 11 with Arkansas at No. 9 rounding out that group.

In Sports Illustrated, the Tigers are No. 2 in the nation behind USC. Says SI, "The Tigers will be loaded on both lines. Losing QB JaMarcus Russell to the NFL would hurt, but Matt Flynn is a more than capable replacement.''

While the season is still eight months away, such early outlooks figure to only heighten the expectation among LSU fans.
