“The winner of the Iron Bowl should find a spot in the BCS National Championship Game”
Didn’t you get an invitation for this weekend, Tiger fans? It should be printed on the back of your ticket.
We cordially invite you to come see the great Nick Saban and his cast of All-Americans for their walk-thru session against the LSU Tigers in Tiger Stadium Saturday, November 6th at 2:30 pm. Have a coke and a smile and don’t forget the peanuts.
--ESPN, CBS, and the schedule makers
No respect. LSU will face off against the defending National Champs with their pride on the line. The last two meetings have been slug fests, with the Tigers coming up short both times. This year, as the sun sets on Tiger Stadium, what will be the end result? A walk-thru for the Crimson Tide or a statement win by the LSU Tigers?
Defensively, LSU needs to slow down Alabama’s two-headed monster at tailback, Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson. If the Tigers can force Alabama and Greg McElroy to beat them through the air it will be advantage LSU. If Alabama runs through the Tiger defense, it will probably be another long day like it was in Auburn, Alabama. It’s as simple as that.
On offense, it’s not so simple. LSU will need to play their best game of the season on the offensive side of the football. The crazy system that the coaches have installed needs to find something to hang its hat on. Run to set up the pass, pass to set up the run; stick to one and pray.
There is one thing is for sure though, Tiger fans. Tiger Stadium doesn’t hold walk-thru’s and tea parties. The stadium needs to live up to its name and reputation on Saturday. There’s no excuses. This one has been circled on the schedule since last year’s blown call on the sideline. It’s time to start the run for 11 and 1.
