think they are going to beat us. I was in Gulfport Miss today, talked with lots of tiger fans, everyone of them thought we are overrated, and also thought they would win. Their gameplan is to knock AJ from the game. I guess we will see
Honestly what do you expect. they are #5 in the country and had 2 weeks to prepair and it is a night game in Baton Rogue. Only loss was to Florida in Gainsville. This is going to be a very physical Game...
I would expect any fan base to think their team would win. Didn't we during the Shula years?
I think the term would be cautiously optimistic.
If the knock AJ out of the game early, I would expect them to have a good chance of winning. If AJ stays healthy, I wouldn't give them a good chance of winning.
And why is the OP getting downvoted for this? He's just telling about what some LSU fans thought and how he thinks Bama is going to win. Why downvote that???
I have honestly not seen many at all that think they will win this game. Especially compared to last year's hyped game.

Their offense isn't as good as MSU. Let's break it down. MSU's OL is better, MSU has the best RB in the SEC. MSU QB is better, MSU has better or equal WR's. LSU only scored 12 on Auburn's terrible defense and 6 on Florida. Bama's D is better than Florida.
Bama is the best offense they will see this season (top to bottom). Especially in the OL.
Plus for LSU - Defense is the best Bama will see all season. Playing in Death Valley.
My prediction: Bama 13 LSU 3
If MSU fans can paint the state of Miss with "we believe 8-0"....I would expect Lswho fans to think they can win as well.
If they knocked Aj out of the game and didn't have a lead I would still feel very confident we would win. If they had a one score lead I would still expect us to probably win. You are giving their offense way too much credit or our defense not enough. They have no direction their qb is bad and their wr aren't very good at their job which is to get separation and catch. Those aren't things you can correct in an off week.
27-10 could be worse but once we get up by two scores I expect us to stop throwing very much and run the clock

Tidefan25 what is the name of your company? I live in Houma and alot of the lswho fans think that Bama is going to win. They just want to have a close game. LOL BAMA 38 lswho 12 RTR
MSU has the best running back in the sec? Are you serious Clark? Why cause he leads the league at ypg after playing mtsu, auburn, and Troy? Please
It's much more amusing that you think they can't win than their belief they can! It's SEC football and LSU. Saban would punch you for such an absurd post. It's exactly the kind of attitude that causes games to be lost. Glad our guys never get too full of themselves & I'm confident we will win but it's not as simple as just "showing up" as you suggest.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
You make some good points but Perkins is nowhere close to being the top back in the SEC. He would probably be the 5th best back on LSU's team and that's only because they lost Blue for the season. There are at least 8 backs better than him on Bama and LSU.
I'd feel the same way if our roles were reversed. I'm saying it again, those of you that think this isn't a war are nuts. There's one team in the country that can match us man to man talent wise and that's LSU. I believe we win on the intangibles and quite possibly win going away on the intangibles, but it's game on for at least a half unless they turn it over and spot us a lead.

BM,,,I think ZM has to have the game of his life ala Garcia in 2010, and I wince as I type this, for LSU to beat us. I am seriously concerned more about the A&M game next week after coming off what could/will be an all out war with LSU.
There's no doubt whatsoever that ZM has underperformed and not yet met expectations this year. What happens if that begins to improve? Any improvements are going to lead to better balance. I am not going to assume ZM is going to play poorly; I am going to assume he is going to do his job. The greatest change in LSU this season vs last is the QB position is not a mobile threat, even Lee had decent wheels last season, ZM is a heavy stone statue. I believe we will take full advantage of this inability in attempts to get in his face and pressure him quickly. I think LSU counters this with getting of quick passes. I think it's going to be a hard fought game for a while.
Great points Bama Trending. I think if we played MSU 10 times that we'd only average at 15-20pt win. MSU had some amazing drives and came up just short of scoring. They also gave us some easy points.
LSU's defense can keep in the game but if they give any cheap ones which they've been prone to do this year or if we get lucky early and hit them on a few big plays, they will not be able to come back from any sizable deficit.
