    2003. You have enough talent around and have a better QB.

    I voted for 2003, but it's not by much. For instance, we lost 2 great linebackers, 2 great running backs & 2 great safeties (if you count Damien James). We have good running backs this year, but I for one, am not convinced, yet, that they equal Toefield/Davis. Linebackers/safeties are a drop off from last year. Most of the rest of the team is the same from last year but with more experience. Yes, we will have better/depth, & quality backups.

    What LSU has going for them in 2003 is:
    1) a damn good coach

    2) odds that we will not have the magnitude of injuries with huge drop offs to backups ( Toefield, Mauck, Henderson, & Wilkinson)

    Not to mention D. James (kicked off), & no experienced starter to replace Trev Faulk who left early.

    My point is we will have a better year in 2003, but not because of a huge step-up in talent. It is combination of many things, & primarily having better backups when folks get hurt.

    2003. More depth, QB has to be better.

    My only worry about this year is the linebacking corps. Bradie James and Jeremy Lawerence will be tough to replace, but hopefully a healthy D-line and improved secondary will pick up the slack. Every other position seems to be improved from last year.
