If you want to state your mind on what you think we’ll be in store for tomorrow night in Tuscaloosa, here you go.
A few food for thought items to get things rolling:
- Before the season started, but after the Jefferson suspension, did you ever think you’d see something like this: Why LSU Might Win: Quarterback experience. If LSU holds up for the rest of the season, somebody on the staff ought to get serious consideration for the Broyles Award for turning Jarrett Lee into a team strength.
- “First, it would be huge for Alabama to score first and do it early. LSU’s defense does its best work with a one-score lead, and Alabama’s defense is not as effective when the team is down or tied as when the team is up. Second, Alabama has a better shot at a comeback than LSU does. Alabama’s defense remains quite tough when the lead grows beyond one score, while LSU’s defense loosens up some with leads larger than seven points.”
- LSU went the entire month of October without a turnover.
I’ve got no idea who wins this sucker. I lean towards Alabama simply because of home-field advantage. But LSU under Miles is an impressive 11-1 in night road games.
Ah, what the hell… here’s a reader poll to go along with this.
