Can good come from a loss?

The LSU Tigers lost Thursday's baseball game to Vanderbilt. Therefore they could not make up any ground on a potential SEC Tournament berth.

Yet, some good can come of this. The Tigers have a very, very young team. You could argue the Tigers need to replace the purple or gold with another Mardi Gras-related color that reflects that lack of experience -- green.

LSU not only saw the likely No.1 pick in June's Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft in Vandy pitcher David Price it also watched Vanderbilt wrap up the overall SEC title with its victory.

So how is this good? Even the best teams endure bad days and sometimes bad seasons. Maybe by watching a team that has clawed its way up the SEC standings little by little in past seasons, LSU can make Paul Mainieri's retooling job in Baton Rouge a little easier.
