Over the course of the last few years some (not all) have often attributed LSU's success to the "talent gap" that we supposedly have over other teams. Les should be 13-1 because LSU has better top to bottom talent. I am not a star watcher or care about Rivals rankings. However lets assume for a moment we truly use that as a barometer. Fact is LSU doesn't have better talent, equal in most cases and arguably less in others. Florida and Bama for example. Teams like Ole Miss now, Auburn, A&M and others have recruited as strong and in the case of this year stronger according to ESPN or a few other services. My point. Every win in the SEC is not a given and when you play so many games against equal or better talented teams we will lose some from time to time. I am not rehashing the past years. But going forward based on today and last year the "talent" gap doesn't exist anymore in our key rivals such as A&M, Bama and others. LSU will be underdogs to Bama for the foreseeable future and probably to A&M as well. So lets keep it in perspective Les has to coach his arse off to have double digit wins because all of opponents are just as good, have just as good facilities and in some cases even better. That is a simple fact.
