The first day of college football was greatness. For those of you who need a refresher, I pull for two teams. The LSU Tigers and the LA Tech Bulldogs. Yesterday, the Tigers beat the Huskies, and the Bulldogs lost to the Auburn Tigers. I saw the LSU game on ESPN, but didn’t get to see the Bulldogs on ESPNU (our cable provider doesn’t have it . . . but I digress).
Initial thoughts on LSU. The Good: I like LSU’s new quarterback, Jordan Jefferson. He’s young, and he’s really good. The Bad: The Tigers really stunk-up the first half. The defense did not put enough pressure on the Huskie’s quarterback, who moved the ball very effectively through the air. The Tigers lucked out with two big turnovers that went their way. Minus those turnovers, I don’t know that they would have won this game. That’s how close it would have been. That’s not impressive against a Huskie team that hasn’t won a game since 2007.
That being said, a win’s a win. I’m hoping that the Tigers were just a little rusty, and I’ll be looking for a better showing next week.
