Game week at last
And when you think about it, the season opener between LSU and North Carolina is like a mystery date.
On one side, you have LSU with all of its well-documented questions -- quarterback play, play-calling, a new passing game coordinator. On the other side, North Carolina has a team with a potential five first-round draft picks. Of course, the mystery is how a pair of investigations into the UNC program will affect the Tar Heels.
I guess it's because of these uncertainities that the line on the game has looked like a tennis match.
It started out as a pick 'em. Then LSU went up to a 4-point favorite. Now the Tigers are down to a two-point favorite.
While there may not have been quite the same anticipation for this season, there is certainly more mystery.
