No. 1 bites the dust

One of the more unfortunate effects of LSU's 2003 national championship season is that seasons are now judged by playing in the national championship game.

Make the title game, the season is a success. Play in a BCS bowl game that is not the title game? That's OK, but it's still not the title game.

This year's LSU team had a simple goal - title game or bust.

It's bust after the Tigers lost 50-48 to Arkansas in triple overtime.

Two losses. Both in triple overtime.

If you're an LSU fan, it may have been an exciting three months, but now it is a waste.

Imagine being a player and having to get up for the SEC title game next week.

Prediction: LSU loses that one if for no other reason than the difficulty of pulling oneself off the mat.

So the 2007 season will go in the books similar to 2005 -- lot of close wins, gaudy record, nothing won of value yet. Divisional titles and trips to Atlanta are old hat now for LSU.
