    Hey, Les went from Broken Pickup, Oklahoma to Baton Rouge….we shoulda known.

    The real question is, has Les sucked all the luck out of the East in the process?

    Wow. You know, if Florida is without their quarterback and LSU manages to knock off a weakened Gator team, they’ve got a shot at a pretty special season while being a pretty average team. All you’ve got to do is steal one from Auburn on the road (something that LSU is pretty good at doing), take your loss to Alabama, and you’ve got a very realistic shot at being an 11-1 team. Arkansas is tough, but LSU has plenty enough talent.

      Lester’s luck will be changing soon and it won’t be for the better!! He has cheated the law of averages by near record proportions to this point


    • Don’t forget that Demps is banged up, too. If Brantley can’t play, the over/under on that game is gonna be ugly.


      • Go Dawgs!

        Yeah, I hadn’t thought of that. I try to block out Florida’s injury report whenever possible, because it always makes me mad that they end up getting healthy again in time to play Georgia. But sheesh… Les really is the luckiest coach in America.

        Given LSU’s offensive ineptitude (and inability to cover a 2 TD spread v. TN), I’m not so sure the UF spread would be too nasty.

        Kinda sad that LSU needs bring a QB in who has been riding the pine for 2 years to generate any offensive attack. I can see why they’re chasing Mettenberger

    I guess UF isn’t like UA where the guys on the bench are better than the guys St Nick deems the starter?

    Florida is outright denying this, which is a confirmation that the rumor is likely true.

    I will never forget the vehement denials that Tim Tebow had been injured prior to our 2007 game against them.

    I will cry crocodile tears for Florida.

    If you have to go with two fake mascots like Albert and that other more effeminate Albert, then you have no right to whine when a real player gets hurt.

    I’m sure Florida could find someone to dress up like John Brantley and play QB.


    • Russell

      Yes, and that dress up John Brantley would be destroyed by everyone-except us. He would only go 22 for 30 and 330 yds and three TD’s against us.

    Don’t push me. I am in no mood to take this.

    Charles gave me the bad news this afternoon.

    After Vanderbilt, I am done and I am not going to Jacksonville.

    But if I was going, you would be the first person I would p!$$ on.

    Mark Richt could end up being the luckiest man in the world. Get our act together on Saturday at 12:21. Watch Bama roll the Cocks and Florida get edged by LSU and we’re (amazingly) one game out of the East w/ the head to head against the Gators looming. I realize that’s the most idiotic thing I’ve ever typed in my life, but…just sayin’.

    Cocks would have 2 losses w/ UT, Arky, and Florida still to go. We would have a chance to go head to head w/ Florida. Of course, if pigs could fly…

    Hey, if you can be consistently lucky, it is better to be lucky rather than good. I think I may ask him what numbers to play in the next lottery drawing.

    I agree, les is the luckiest coach and UGA is the UNluckiest team EVER!!!!!!!!!!
