yep it will only be 95 at kickoff

Advantage LSU.  It's hotter in Louisiana than Texas, you know, humidity and all...

I say 38-24 LSU.  If Texas gets a fast start, then we have a chance.  We need to get Coach O on his heels.  If we go down early, at least the beer will be cold.

We just don't have the horses.  We have a better chance next year, when LSU thins out.

I just think it's funny how Aggy now claims LSU as their real "rival", when all Aggy will be cheering for LSU Saturday.

The fans on both sides obviously will be desirous of a win.  LSU's path to the playoff goes through Alabama, and probably Georgia, win or lose.

I think Texas "perceived pedigree" gets fuzzier with a loss even if they go 12-1 if other teams are 12-1 out there.  Just my notion, I could be wrong of course, won't matter if I am.  LSU is at $6 and Texas at #9.  If we presume a say 24-17 loss for either, I'd expect LSU to drop to about 13 and Texas to about 18.  If Texas lost again fairly soon, folks might conclude they are not back, that was my point.  If LSU lost, well, they lost to a tough SEC opponent, like say Arkansas.

Yeah, I just don't see LSU's brand new "we finally discovered the forward pass" offense scoring 38 points.  That would imply that their new offense is going to be roughly equal in production to OU's offense which has consistently been one of the best in the country for years running. In 3 games against Orlando's defense, the Sooners have scored 29, 45, and 39.  OU has flat-out better and more talented offensive personnel than LSU, they're running a system they were explicitly recruited for and are better suited to, and with better offensive coaching than LSU has.  I don't see LSU being able to really come close to their production.

Unless maybe you're assuming they get 2 pick-6s off Sam or something?  Seems far-fetched.

This looks a lot more like a 24-20 type of game.  Could go either way.  I like Sam to be the difference maker and put the W on Texas' side of the ledger.  Time will tell, of course.

You're inheriting some Austin Malaise.  It's making you more agreeable. :)

IN such games, turnovers are usually pivotal, and unpredictable.

I'll be interested to see what Orgeron does if the first two drives are stuffed. He may chuck it all and implement the wishbone for the 2nd quarter. After that, we could see four corners and the neutral zone trap.

This is a strong point.  But I'm fearing they run all over us (big gainers) and maybe a couple by air.

You have to understand that my projections are geared to mitigate my impending disappointment level.

Plus I am self-loathing.

And all.

Part of the game will be seeing just how much moxy the Texas OL has. Against all tendency, LaTech brought blitz after blitz. The Longhorn group picked them up time and again, showing they're at least heady about the concepts and techniques.

One sight I recall was a swing pass to Ingram. I had to double-take as two Texas OL (Cosmi and Braun) were right out in front of him. I was very confused when I saw them actually engage a defender and plant them.

All this time, as a Texas fan, I thought that the OL's job on a swing pass was to arrive after the tackle for a close look, or to simply run in a straight line until you crashed into the opposing team's bench!

Orgeron doesn't eat grass, does he?  I thought it might be in the water.

I have been wrong about 3 things in life:

1) Submarine sandwiches will never work in the South

2) Cable TV will put movie theaters out of business

3) Coach Orgeron is a Cajun moron and will take LSU to the bottom of the swamp

I would say the jury is no longer out on #3, and so beating Georgia was nice, but....
