WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!! We have all been waiting for this upcoming weekend for nearly eight months now. This has been by far the most enjoyable off-season in memory for LSU sports. A stellar year by several of the LSU sports programs all capped off with the football National Championship! Now, in five short (optimistic) days LSU will begin a new season and defend its national championship. What better way to start it off with than facing a team from the best conference in America, the Pac-10 (sarcasm)! LSU will cover the spread easily in this one! Heads up to Oregon State: You are about to learn what defense really is! You are going to learn how team speed is devastating. You are going to experience the pure bliss (mwuhaha) of high humidity on a hot day. Best of all you are going to learn that 92,000 roaring fans DO make a difference! This game won't be close but Oregon State has earned respect and will earn even more. LSU will win big and to make it all even better, Oregon State will topple USC in Corvallis later this year. What a great point of comparison this will be for the national media and supposedly subjective pollsters! GEAUX TIGERS!
