Before I came to fan nation I was blogging on Sportsnation profiles, ESPN's community pages. Every week I would do upset picks and previews, stuff like that. I am shifting my tradition over here and starting out with my previews.
Saturday night #15 LSU will face off against the scrappy Arkansas Razorbacks. In a game that will probably determine bowl spots, a team that has scored 273 points in 11 games this season (LSU), will try to battle it out against a team that has scored over 400 points in the same amount of games.
Lately in LSU I have noticed the coaching is, well it sucks. For some reason this season has made me HATE Les Miles. Not only is the timeout situation last week bad, but how about the play calling. NOW Russel Shepard the #1 Highschool prospect in the country is playing behind a SOPHOMORE that only got the start because the starting SOPHOMORE QB got injured. For some reason Les Miles is a blind donkey and doesn't realise that not only would most of the fan base wants him playing, but that the season is pretty much over and it would be great for the future for him to start Shepard. Honestly this might lose them the game tomorrow, but as of now I could give a rat's ass.
Lets face it LSU's defence isn't what it was during Dorsey's days. Arkansas, having the 14th best offence in the country is going to give them a TERRIBLE time. Just by looking at the statistics I am pretty nervous for tomorrow night. Without a doubt, with the spread being 4 in favor of LSU, I am picking Arkansas. Hell, I might even pick em strait up. We might lose anyway, so we might as well lose with a purpose. That purpose being, giving the playing time to Russel Sheppard instead of Jordan Jefferson.
On another note I lost my 8 game streak on streak for the cash tonight because of Pittsburgh. Rough weekend....
