    There are not many out there who believe we can hang with LSU much less beat them. Good article even for me who is optimistic but a little nervous. Well, I was more nervous against Auburn and look how that turned out.

      I am just impressed that our players didnt give LSU any bulletin board material and have remained quiet despite the trash coming out of LSU this week. That has to be credit to Mullen for keeping control. We always seem to lose when we talk trash ahead of games recently. I like the focus.

        Similar to the Auburn game, their offense hasn't seen a defense as good as ours, they'll struggle..

        Our strength is their weakness, we will easily move the ball through the air. I actually have more confidence in this game than i did against the barn, Trask is taking us unbeaten to Atlanta.

        This game will come down to which defense can make that crucial stop. LSU has been relying on their O to get it done but what happens when they run into one of the best defenses they will face all year. They have played nobody with a decent pass defense this year. Burrow will not have time to sit in the pocket and wait for routes to open. Our defense comes in hungry holds LSU. We win easy 31-21 with most of their points coming in garbage time.

          death valley is still a tough place to play, but that article makes me feel better. Could be interesting.

          I am really looking forward to having Zuniga back on the field.

              With Greenard on the other side. Something we haven't had in awhile.

                Don't they also produce an article for the other team? "5 reasons LSU will beat the Gators"

                Edit: 5 reasons No. 5 LSU beats No. 7 Florida to stay on Playoff track

                          Statue for what? Can we at least wait until he adds some hardware to the trophy case of substance? Yes, I'm talking SEC Champs trophies and National Champs trophies.

                            I was just about to post something similar to this. I mean, the discipline and control Mullen has on this team is amazing. He must have said something immediately after auburn that we better keep our mouths shut and get to business as usual. Typically, that’s ignored by players. I’m getting a feeling....

                              We have so many Gator haters in the national media, it’s refreshing to hear someone pumping some sunshine for a change. But yeah, DM gotta earn some hardware first.

                                  I feel slightly more optimistic about this game than the one last week. Auburn won the paper matchup (ie: strengths vs respective weaknesses) and had a very impressive win over Oregon, whereas we had struggled in a few of our games.

                                  The article is right to point out that we match up pretty favorably with them. Their offensive strength goes up against the strengths of our defense; and our offensive strengths match up against where they're weakest. They do seem very confident and we seem focused.

                                  BUT...all of that is just background "noise." It means nothing on the field itself. Go Gators. Hoping for another surprise.

                                    I hope most can agree that the fact of the matter is: if we don’t turn the ball over. We’ll win. I’ve dug way too deep into this game and that is the elephant in the room. Turnovers could easily allow them to cover that 13.5 spread. We don’t give them opportunities. We take the win. I believe that will be the case.
