Too high?

LSU's No. 2 ranking in both the AP and coaches' polls leaves the Tigers little room for improvement or error.

For those who don't understand why some think LSU may be rated a tad too high, let me offer this defense.

Look at the experience of the starting quarterbacks of the top five schools in the country - USC, LSU, West Virginia, Texas and Michigan. Of that group only one school - LSU - doesn't have a proven starting quarterback.

You can say Matt Flynn had a great Peach Bowl. I would remind you he was not-so-great against Georgia in the SEC Championship Game. The point is: We just don't know.

Now Flynn may come out and play great and all worries would cease. But there is just an unknown with an unproven quarterback.
