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....
I agree 
theres no way this Horns team should even be on the same field as LSU
I just hope they show mercy keep it under 100

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Dang BC I thought the same thing, especially after they got beat by Troy mid-way through the season a couple of years ago.  

I'm not so sure it still won't happen, especially as the memory of Les Miles fades.  Kinda like how Switzer took Dallas to the superbowl that one year with Jimmy's players and system.

I don't know, that seems like a fairly SEC-centric view of the situation.

LSU hasn't played for the NC since 2007.  Texas played for it in 2009.

LSU hasn't played for its conference championship since 2011.  Texas played for its conference championship just last year in 2018. 

This game is a border war between schools that compete frantically over recruits, as well as a game between top 10 teams.  The stakes look pretty similar to me. *shrug*
Yeah, they played in that rematch in 2011, against Bama. It didn't go well.

I picked Texas to win this game in the pool I play in. I think it won't be close, in fact.

It really would be nice if @MikeDeTiger would roll in here. Same with 25, but he's never been here before. @UT-Erin03  has a cool LSU friend, but I'm not sure he's ever posted here or at the old joints.

Right, but the rest of the free world, outside of half of Alabama, would have enjoyed Okie State / LSU just a little more.

Well, I certainly would have watched that game, and I certainly didn't watch the snoozefest rematch.

My LSU friend is still kickin' & we see him frequently, but he's in the midst of dealing with crazy-chick drama and in a bit of a stitch with that lately.  He may have popped on back on the old boards after he came to that Arky-Auburn game with me, but he's not much of an internet-chatter like we are so I didn't think he would become a regular.   

Sadly, I was not able to get tickets to this epic matchup for this season, but will hold out hopes that maybe I can make it work for a Baton Rouge trip  next season.  One reason was because our vacation is coming up this week so financially it wasn't going to be very feasible, but also because they didn't release ANY single tickets on the UT online box office like I hoped they would, so there was no chance at all for paying face-value.    I guess all the alumni/donors, etc, scooped up all the extras before any public sales happened, but it's a GREAT thing to see the game sold out & everyone ready to watch! 



As far as predictions, it's a crapshoot for me to even try to guess this early in the season but I'm going to assume it may be similar to the uGa score in the end -    28-21 with UT taking the win in a close one, mostly with homefield advantage in mind (little as that counts in games like these). 

I find it interesting that my NFL team is also playing a LA team - Texans take on the Saints in the MNF feature. However I feel that one will end badly for my team, and Saints will be ready to pound as hard as they can out of anger for what happened in their last playoff game.    But those Texans can take it, they get paid the goods to put up or shut up.

sometimes people just don't know what they really want or need. it's good we have someone to look out for them.

Well, I certainly would have watched that game, and I certainly didn't watch the snoozefest rematch.

like this guy, needs a ton of help. not sure there's much we can do for him, but we try. probably still thinks colt would have made it more of a game in 09. :sign0151:
