Now that the hangover has subsided from Saturday’s defeat at the hands of Aaron Murray and the Georgia Bulldogs it’s time to pick ourselves up and move forward with the rest of the season. All the goals the LSU Tigers set out to accomplish at the beginning of the season are still within reach for Les Miles’ team, but now the margin for error is razor thing.
The schedule for LSU is about to get increasingly difficult as they enter the heart of their SEC schedule. LSU has already played one top-20 team in TCU and a top-10 team in Georgia, but four ranked opponents remain on the schedule over the final seven games.
One more loss is sure to drop LSU from the BCS Championship Game picture. LSU was able to win a title with two-losses in 2007, but the chances of that happening again are as slim as my chances of winning the lottery on back-to-back weekends.
LSU coasted in their first four games, but now we will see the resolve of this team. LSU could conceivably win out and it wouldn’t surprise anyone, or they could potentially let this loss foster and drop a few if they don’t correct their defensive deficiencies–now that just sounds weird. LSU and defensive deficiencies haven’t been put in the same sentence in the last decade.
