    LSU is Ripe

    If you?ve been following LSU this offseason, they?ve had the toughest offseason of anyone I can remember. Ravaged by the draft, ravaged by opt outs, significant transfer portal action, and rampant Covid positives among the team. Not to mention they?re replacing the best season of QB play I?ve ever seen with an incredibly average football player, massive downgrade even if MB is solid. I don?t remember a reigning national champion being this ripe for upset in the following season.

    Now the bad new. Which us do we get? If the offense runs well with KJ it would not shock me for us to beat them and beat them soundly. However, it is not unreasonable to expect a tough transition to Leach?s system especially losing spring. We are flipping so radically to new systems on offense I could see a nightmare for 4-6 games before getting better late. Don?t forget defense is overhauled too but I like our odds of transition better over there. My range of possibilities has never been so wide. I could see us winning by 2 score all the way to getting trounced 49-10. Neither would shock me. I need a quarter of seeing us live.

    What say you fellas? What are y?all expecting?

    it's difficult to figure out but I would simply just take the under if you're wanting to bet .... If there is an upset then it would come as the first game (or very early in the season) but the bounces would have to go our way and they would need to put a few rounds through their foot to make this happen ..... having said all of that drivel - I am able to muster a little hope for this game.

    Without a doubt. Don’t they have new co-ordinators on both sides of the ball also? I can see a HUGE hangover in Baton Rouge without the divided locker room. They are definitely ripe.

    My heart says MSU 35-21.
    My head says LSU 42-10.

    After the stench of JoeMo, I just want us to be competitive and well coached and not the clown show from last year.

    But, Leach's system is not trigonometry. Everywhere he's been has picked it up pretty quickly. He's not trying to divide the hypotenuse of 40 yard line with the square root of the goal post.

    LSU is only ripe if we're worth a damn.

    At this point, MSU just needs to focus on playing to it's potential & not worrying about the shape LSU is in

    I don't think 42-10 is realistic. That's helmet betting

    True. I'd feel better if Malik Heath didn't have a DUI and was going to play.

    Feels like his ability would've been good a big play or 2

    Yeah, well I thought there was no way in hell we'd lose to them for 21 times between 1992 and 2014 either.

    It's MSU induced PTSD - I've seen too many loses to them since 1991.

    Lucky for you I’m just a random dude who post on message boards wondering about the shape LSU is in. I doubt Leach has a period in practice where he updates the team of LSU’s roster.

    Agree. I wasn't really talking to you. Just making the point that all of LSU's issues only matter if we're good.

    I expect a 34-24 type game. LSU wins but doesn't cover.

    That's where I'm leaning too. After watching the highlights of the 2013 WSU/AU game I can see it turning out like that.

    there is a big difference in losing to them 21 times and us only scoring 10 points.

    I'm leaning somewhere in the 38-31 or 42-34 type range. We're gonna score and I don't think they cover. I could see it anywhere from a 3-14 point game. So I'll go in the middle around a 7-8 point game.

    Can't you guys recognize "Metaphorical" analogies ?

    I would imagine teams will be trying to give their depth meaningful snaps more this year if they get ahead early.

    Not saying that is the case here but I would think there will be a lot of garbage time points given up and scored by all teams this year.

    Especially with the removal of full on home field advantage and screaming fans to help keep defenses in games and sway momentum changes.

    Only scoring 10 points in any game whatsoever this year will be a let down IMO.

    Don't see that happening even if everything was normal right now.
