Athlon's has LSU No. 17

It's that time -- the preseason football magazines are hitting the stores.

Athlon's has LSU ranked No. 17 -- which seems is a little low until further inspection.

"This is an intriguing LSU team," Athlon Sports managing editor Mitch Light said in a press release. "There is tons of talent, but there are also some concerns. If the Tigers get quality play from the quarterback position, and the defense improves under John Chavis, there is no reason they can't be in the hunt for an SEC title."

He pretty much nailed it there -- if you're looking at the way the team peformed last season.

Going into the 2008 season, no one expected the LSU defense to fail as miserably as it did. The quarterback situation was only slightly worse than this year in term's of actual starting experience -- Andrew Hatch had zero starts while Jordan Jefferson will have two.

I guess my point is this: all we have to judge on is last season. And that makes for a pretty poor judge sometimes.

LSU does not deserve to be ranked higher than 17 after last year's poor QB, LB and DB showings. The defense will be better this year, and there is talent at QB. The QBs just need experience, and one of them needs to step up and be the man.
