No. 9 with a bullet

Call me surprised.

Just yesterday, I was talking to a fellow journalist about where we thought LSU would be ranked in the preseason coaches' poll. We both agreed around No. 15 or No. 16. Certainly not in the top 10 after an 8-5 season.

So what happens? The poll comes out and LSU is ranked in the top 10 at No. 9.

Surprise, surprise, surprise.

"After the season we had last year, I didn't think we'd be ranked as high,'' LSU running back Keiland Williams told reporters after Friday morning's practice. "That shows a lot of respect for our program.''
