DiNardo likes ....

He's the last LSU football coach NOT to play for a national title, so take this for what it's worth, but Gerry DiNardo likes Ohio State in Monday's title game.

In the interest of full disclosure, it must be pointed out that DiNaro now works for the Big Ten Network as an analyst.

DiNardo told the Chicago Tribune he thinks the "psychology of the game'' favors Ohio State.

DiNardo did give the Tribune one caveat.

"But if (Ohio State quarterback Todd) Boeckman doesn't play well it's not enough. And Ohio State didn't do a good enough job of protecting him in their final two games. (His subpar performance) wasn't all his fault.''

DiNardo, though, may have stumbled on to something.

He could see backup quarterback Antonio Henton getting some action.

"Henton was one of the highest-recruited dual quarterbacks in the country. If they don't line up with Henton at some point and run the spread, I will be surprised,'' DiNardo told the Trib.

And if they do, LSU may have a problem on its hands. The Tigers had fits with Brent Schaeffer at Ole Miss and Darren McFadden in Arkansas' Wild Hog formation.
