Far be it from me to say anything amiss about the alma mater of me mater and paterâ€”McNeese State University. Nevertheless, LSU should have blown them out tonight, but they didn’t. Instead, LSU struggled against a 1-AA school that had a record of 2-3. LSU ended up winning, and the win gives them their first 7-0 start since 1973. But don’t be surprised when people express frustration with Les Miles this week. The Tigers looked lackluster and sloppy, and fans know that LSU will get embarrassed if they play that way against Auburn, Alabama, and Arkansas.
With losses from Ohio State and Nebraska, LSU will certainly move up at least two spots in the rankings this week. They may even move into the top five. LSU has already beaten three ranked opponents, but they haven’t even gotten to the difficult part of their schedule yet. When the Tigers meet Auburn next week, we’ll see how good LSU really is.
