ESPN College GameDay to be at LSU-Oregon game
I would've been shocked if Gameday had gone anywhere else. It'll be an exciting day...
What would be better for LSU? To do destroy Oregon (like they did V-tech in 07) or to win a close one (which makes defeating Oregon seem like a bigger deal)?
It is alway better to destroy. Better for my heart especially.:geaux:
Destroy Oregon in Dallas. That would be excellent. Show the D/FW kids where the big boys play and why they should come to LSU.
Us destroying VT in 07 was one of the major deciding factors that allowed us to jump to #2 in the polls in the last week of the season.
VT was also in the mix for #2 but we eliminated all doubt about who was the better team.
LSU destroying another team is always to be preferred. If Oregon goes out and wins the PAC 12 championship, as Va Tech did that year, no one will doubt that serving them a loss is a big deal. If Oregon manages to rack up a sub-.500 record, that victory will lose its luster over the course of the year anyway no matter how close it was. (Not that I consider this likely, but Texas and stuff) The rest of their schedule is just so much more important than our margin of victory.
