LSU gets beat by Florida this weekend. I don't have any stats or logical arguments to back it up, but I've just got a feeling that Florida wins. I'm actually not a big fan of Muschamp's (seems like a big ol' doucher to me), but I do think he's done a better job than I expected him to this year. It seems like LSU has gotten worse as the season has gone on and UF has improved each week. I am rather impressed with Driskel at UF, and very underwhelmed with Mettenburger at LSU. I just see UF's defense pressuring Mett all afternoon and his crazy lack of athleticism costing LSU the game.
Anyone with me on this one?
I think LSU wins but won't be surprised either way
yes and then USCe beats them next week. The East is much stronger this year. I also pick
USCe over UGA Saturday. Then UGA beats UF and USCe loses to UF. Three way tie for the East.
I picked them to lose as well in our BOL pick em league but everything I am reading is saying LSU will win.
They sure dont look like he typical LSU team and I have been impressed with FL so far his year once they decided on Driskell.
I fully expect that LSU will be down by 2 with less than a minute to go. Miles will badly mismanage the clock and instead of a 37 yard FG at the gun by their kicker, Beckham will grab a ball out of the air in the endzone that's lofted up by the Mettburglar.
I think Florida wins too as long as the wheels don't fall off on offense (a lot of turnovers). LSU looks like a broken team to me.
I've had Florida for a long time. I think Florida goes 11-1 and beats FSU and LSwho. They will lose one game to a team they should beat cause they will struggle to handle the success along the way.
They are a well put together team. Very talented defense and play smart on offense.
UF will have a good shot of winning this game, but I still think that LSU has not played near their best football yet and Playing a big time game should have them as focused as ever Saturday. I am going with LSU in this one, but it should be a good one either way.

Lsu has line issues, and their Qb has a mustache. Florida wins.
Follow me on twitter, @BSCTIDE. Let's tweet.
this kind of feeling!

The moustache argument swayed me. The Mettburglar will misfire to Beckham. Florida by a bucket.

I think you're dead on with this prediction.
I believe Herbstreit reported on Finebaum earlier this week that the stache was gone. Does this change your outlook for the weekend?
I bet that Saban and Muschamp have been talking about this game. Muschamp is going to shut LSU down. LSU's offensive line is struggling because of injuries. They also do not have a big time playmaker at wide receiver. Florida is going to make LSU one dimensional and punish Mettenberger on passing downs with blitz packages he has never seen before. LSU's will have to win a field position game because they are going to struggle to score. Florida will win this game by a touchdown.
LSU will win 17-14. This is a typical Les Miles type setup. He's been rope-a-doping all season and will pull this one out of his butt. The next week South Carolina, if its not a night game in death valley, will get LSU.
LSU will be able to run against UF. UF has played 1 team that can run the ball (aTm) and did so with Michael not 100%. UF is getting better, but they haven't arrived yet. LSU will also hit a trick play and a big pass play that will set up those other scores. UF plays straight man-to-man and those LSU WRs are good enough to get open enough for Mettenberger to eventually hit them 1 outta those 10 times.
Yep, have UF winning a close one.
I know LSU is favored but I believe that Florida has the better team. The Gators win by 10.
LSU under Miles reminds me of Aubie under Dye (other than the fact that Les won a title). I think LSU junks along and then steps up until they play an elite team. I see them winning this week...close. Their D (and ours) are far superior to Florida's IMO. Also, I think Driskel gives LSU at least 2 turnovers that they win with. 24-20 LSU
If LSU can protect Mett. they will prob pull a close one out. This hopefully will be a really good game. This week is a good weeks to see how the SEC will start to shake out.
What will tell the tale is whether Florida can success on offense against LSU. I, for one, think that the Gators will find it extremely difficult to have any success against the LSU defense. For that reason I think LSU will win. I have been on Florida's bandwagon since the beginning of the season but I don't think they will win this one. I do think they will beat UGA and South Carolina, however, and I hope they can expose FSU at the end of the year.
The line has moved, Haha. But still going with the fighting Muschamps.
