Some football talk

You know football season is just around the corner when the temperature is over 100 degrees for oh, two, three, four straight days.

And that's where we are in Louisiana these days.

College Football News.com had its preview of LSU's upcoming season. You can click on the link here.

They may be a tad bit optimistic. While Jordan Jefferson certainly played well against Georgia Tech in the bowl game, he has all of two starts in his career -- none in Tiger Stadium.

I don't think this is a national championship contending year even though the schedule flips over with Florida coming to Tiger Stadium.

That being said, I do think LSU can contend at some point during the time Jefferson and Russell Shepard are at LSU.

However, at this point, it's all speculation. We'll know way more about this team in two months.

The '09 season depends on the QB. The defense will be much improved under Chavis, Haley and Cooper. LSU is thin at WR, but Toliver and/or Randle may step up as a reliable alternative to LaFell. They are not going to run a spread offense, but they need a legitimate passing threat to open up the run.

A 2 loss season is possible, depending on the QB. 3 or more losses are realistic if the QB play is average.
