    Byron Young will take a huge step this year. Mark it down. He is a man among boys.

    Big concern for me as well. On the flip side we are going to have a really good DL so we can mask that weakness.

    Still thin at LB. A season ending injury to someone like Banks would be devasting. Just score baby score.

    I agree. There is so much potential to be tapped into with him.

    I'll believe it if we enter Bama week at 5-0. This team has way too many weaknesses for me to be confident about anything.

    Entering Bama week 5-0 is going to require us winning two 60/40 games and a 50/50. Tall order, even if we do take a step forward.

    Yeah but lose two of them and October can get ugly. Those three games are good matchups for us as all three have mediocre offenses and outside of LSU mediocre defenses. I'm just saying, they looked nice at times last year and we have some players but I need to see some scalps before I'm bought in on this program.

    We have an oddly strong winning percentage against LSU. Definitely one of the toughest places to play in college football though.

    I forgot that disaster happened there. That was such a kick in the [penis] loss.

    You all have a issue with the 5-5-4 defense?

    I'm pretty sure we lost 2 of the last 3 down there. Lost the Dooley game and the 2000 OT game. Won the 05 OT game. I don't think there was another game in Baton Rogue since 2000.

    If our d can keep the opposing scores below 24 with Heuple’s offense I feel pretty optimistic.

    I am not excited about five hour games, though.

    If the guys can jump out in front well enough early, they can burn clock later. It is when we go down or stay in a shootout that it gets crazy

    1. We've lost 2 of 3 in Death Valley. Won in 05. Lost in 00 and 10. Should have won both.

    2. We're going to have to win the 50/50 games if we're taking a step forward. Maybe 5-0 is too much to ask for going into Bama, but 4-1 isn't.

    The one thing I like about us in this game is we know who our QB is and he is in year 2 of the system.
