The LSU Tigers put a whoopin’ on the Auburn Tigers tonight, and it was a great game. After seeing Florida put a shellacking on Tennessee and hearing Alabama lower the hammer on Arkansas, it was good to see a hard-fought game. I think that Tigers v. Tigers may have been the best game all day.
The SEC has four other teams ranked in the Top 10, and LSU will have to play all of them before the season is out. So this was a big win for LSU. One down and three to go.
One other thing. In terms of difficulty of schedule, compare LSU to USC. USC is the number one team in the nation and the darling of the media. Yet USC only plays 2 ranked schools all season, only one of which is a top 10 school. USC is really good, but let’s not pretend that their league or their schedule is anything like the SEC’s. When we set LSU’s 3-0 record next to USC’s 2-0 record, we are not comparing apples to apples.
Not that I’m biased or anything.
