Based on our talent, the brand-new defensive staff, the green QB, and the toughest schedule in the SEC (along with Arkansas), had you told me we'd have finished 9-3 in the beginning of the season, I would have taken it. However, I did think we'd win one of our games against Florida and Bama. Listening to the pre-season LSU radio shows where everybody called in to give their prediction, not a lot of people were saying we'd do better than 9-3. One guy even said he expected at least 5 losses--no offense to LSU or the team (and he was saying he was a huge Tiger fan), he just said "we don't have the horses this year" when it came to star talent. And I felt him when he said that. So all-and-all, I'm pleased with 2009, but expect us to do better over the next two seasons. P.S. should have put "meet" not "met" in title. Sorry, can't edit it.
