Uh ....

I hate to be the bearer of bad news here, but if something doesn't change this may not turn out so well for LSU fans.

Here's my point, LSU has led in this series a grand total of two times -- 1-0 in the first game and 7-6 at the end of the first game.

The rest of the time, Texas has been pretty dominant -- both on the mound and at the plate.

And let's face it, Texas was 39-0 when leading after eight innings going into Monday's game. So you can't count on the Longhorns' bullpen blowing it again.

I know the hope of LSU fans is Anthony Ranaudo shuts down Texas on Wednesday night. He very well may. Or he may struggle the way he did against Virginia and all bets are off.

The problem for LSU right now is Texas' starting pitching. LSU did nothing with Taylor Jungmann. And the Tigers struggled with Chase Ruffin on Monday night.

Now, all is not lost. It's a one-game championship. But LSU hasn't played its best game -- or really even a good game -- yet against Texas.
