I think all Bama fans hoping we are overlooking them will be sorely surprised Saturday. Everything I've read anywhere has indicated: 1) Nick Saban is taking Alabama very seriously. He thinks they are the best 4-6 team in the country. 2) LSU has had an excellent week of practice. This is a problem from the Florida game. It was said the team didn't practice well that week. It has also been said that LSU has had wonderful practices since the Florida game, and we see the results on the field in the games thus far. 3) As much as they are denying it, there is too much of a revenge factor for this to be a letdown game. I'm sure a lot of players took the classless acts last year personally. So I think if Alabama beats us this weekend, it will not be because of a letdown. That said, I love LSU's chances this weekend. Enough to say I'd probably take LSU even with the spread.
