If you look at ESPN.com's list of women's basketball "experts'' and their picks for the Final Four, you will see LSU is not getting a lot of respect.

Nancy Lieberman is the only "expert'' picking LSU to beat Rutgers. And even she has LSU losing to the Tennessee Lady Vols in the national title game.

Now, I am a little surprised about these experts going with Rutgers. I know Rutgers had a nice run in the tournament and beating Duke is a nice accomplishment. But I think Sylvia Fowles will be too tough for Rutgers.

That being said, I can see how folks would be scared off of LSU. Better LSU teams than this have gone to the Women's Final Four and fallen on their collective face.

As for losing to Tennessee in the finals, it should be pointed out that those teams are 1-1 against each other this season with LSU winning the last meeting.

LSU has gone under the radar for the most part in the tournament. It looks like that will continue this weekend.
