How big is big?

A certain former football coach at LSU didn't talk about big games. To him, it was just another game on the schedule.

Of course, I don't think he may have ever been in a situation like the one Paul Mainieri will be in on Monday.

Just how big is LSU's game with Arkansas on Monday? Consider this, if LSU wins the Tigers don't play again until Friday -- which would mean a fully rested pitching staff -- when they can earn a spot in the best-of-three series for the national championship with a win.

If LSU loses,the Tigers would need to win on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday to reach the best-of-three championship series. Even if the Tigers were to accomplish such a feat, their pitching would be stretched thin by next Monday.

So even though Monday's game is televised by ESPN2, it will be a huge one for both the Tigers and the Razorbacks.

I think Coleman can do it against UA. It's probably good that he got to throw a little against VA.
