Wow, LSU is about to play 5 more ranked teams in a row (6 in all).  
Good luck with that.

I hear we have some very aerodynamic footwear this year.  Maybe Florida will find it irresistible and help us out again.

I figure they have some reasonable shot against UK and Ole Miss and A&M, they should beat ULM.  Arky and UF, probably not, they could spring an upset of course.

If they win out, they win the West unless Auburn does the same.  Um, low prob there.

So, at 3-2, maybe they win 2 of the first 3 listed and find an upset with Florida?  With ULM, they get to 7, but that looks improbable to me.  A 6-6 season, which could be 5-7 easily enough, and you figure O is gOne.

Seven wins is difficult but doable if they can play up to their ability. ULM is a given. Vegas thinks the Kentucky game is almost a toss up.  IMO neither Arkansas nor A&M are very good. So that's seven wins.  If they stumble upset Alabama,  Mississippi of Florida.

Neaux.

Unless they make a bowl, win it, and you count that.

They will probably win the remaining non-conf. games against Central Michigan and ULM.  They might be able to go get a W at Kentucky, I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt there.  Counting McNeese, that's four wins.

Florida and Alabama are losses.  A&M and Arkansas look like losses, both have shown much more on both LOS than the Tigers.  Auburn is a loss unless there's more than a 20-year warranty on the Cigar Curse.  I'm not a superstitious person, but there was 2017, and that was almost enough to make me a believer.  But I don't bet on nonsense and Auburn is a better team.  Counting UCLA, that's 6 losses, so 4-6 so far.

Mississippi State used to be a given, as the Tigers exerted one of the worse streaks on the Bulldogs for nearly two decades, even when occasionally Clanga should've won.  But they've not only beaten LSU, but whipped their arse in the process, twice in O's short tenure.  Ole Miss I don't know much about, but right now you don't need a good defense, you just need LSU to possess the ball and they'll do the sputtering for you.  I'll be charitable and say LSU could win both, though splitting them seems more likely, and losing both isn't what I'd call unlikely.  That ranges from 4-8 to 6-6. 

I think to get 7 LSU is going to have to beat both Mississippi schools and count on Auburn to wet the bed once again in Baton Rouge, and that's assuming they can win in Lexington. 

I also think if they don't hit 7, O could set a record for shortest tenure after an undefeated season.  He was not Woodward's hire, and I don't think Woodward will sit around while O runs this so far into the ground that LSU can no longer pull a desirable coach.  I think there's a chance Woodward may be the first guy to be able to navigate the shark-infested political waters of LSU and make his own decisions instead of being the board and the boosters' puppet. 

Not too bad.  Did not peg the Florida win and Kentucky loss, but 6-6 was within my range.  

Also nailed O's departure, although that turned out to be sealed for off-field reasons well before failing to hit 7 wins.  What I got right was he had no room for error with the current AD.
