Nada Nagurski

There were 62 players -- 17 from the SEC -- on the watch list for the Nagurski Award, given to the nation's best defensive player.

LSU didn't have a player on the list. The only other SEC school not represented was Mississippi State.

Before LSU fans get upset, just remember, the LSU defense gave up half-a-hundred to Florida AND Georgia last year. And, for the most part, the Tigers' defense was terrible last year.

So this is what happens when your defense is terrible. Nobody thinks you are any good.

Now, that's not to say LSU won't have a much better defense in 2009. But it does go to show you what people thought of LSU's defense from a year ago -- apparently not much.

I did not think much of LSU's defense last year, specifically the co-coordinators. They were not worthy of being position coaches in the SEC last year, at least not for a team that wants to win games and titles.
