    LSU
    Spring practice starts March 4, Spring Game April 1
    The big spring question is ... Will LSU fans accept an average year? How can an 11-2 season be a disappointment? Give away one game at home in overtime to an inferior Tennessee team, and lose the SEC title game. While it might be a little harsh to not heap the love on Les Miles and his staff for a terrific first season in the midst of a disaster like Katrina, the bar has been raised on the Bayou. Never mind that Miles' surpassed most expectations, LSU might be asked to do even more with its ridiculously talented team. That might be impossible with road games at Auburn, Florida, Tennessee and Arkansas.
    The most important position to watch is ... Tackle, on both sides of the ball. LSU has to replace All-Americans Claude Wroten and Kyle Williams on the defensive side and mammoth left tackle Andrew Whitworth on the left side. The main focus all spring will be on the quarterback situation, but the Tigers can't think about getting back to the SEC title game unless Peter Dyakowski, or another top prospect, can step in for Whitworth and Glen Dorsey can grow into a rock in the middle of the defensive line.
    Spring attitude... If LSU can overcome the adversity of last year, it can handle a tough four-game road slate. The program overcame a hurricane to get to the SEC title game, and the loss of starting quarterback JaMarcus Russell to blow up Miami in the Peach Bowl. This might be the fastest, most athletic team in America with a boatload of talented skill players.
