LSU fans want LSU at the top and I'm all for that.  There are plenty of things we need to improve on and you can go to just about any LSU sports forum and read all about it.  However, I'd say we are heading in the right direction if we finish 6th and as the second best SEC team.   Can Coach O and Ensminger takes us even further down the road?  Lots of fans are skeptical about that.  As they say, "we shall see."

The biggest surprise to me is how low the Aggies finish in the poll.  They lost to InbredGumps and Clemson, and they beat us (with some help).  #6 finish for us is very strong!  That game in Austin on 9/7 is going to be a real head knocker, after they handled Ga.

I agree on aTm, that’s low for their finish. A little too low, but I guess most of the voters saw the same thing. Rankings next year will be fun. UT / LSU matchup with be a great way to start the second week of the season. I plan to attend the game in Austin, being it’s about two hour drive from my house.
