Say hello to the newest addition to the LSU family. Mike VI is a Bengal/Siberian mix who is 300 pounds now. In 3 years he will be up to 700! That is ******* beastly, seeing as Mike V was only 375 pounds and he was huge. Man I can't wait til tomorrow for the game, even though its away. Then comes VT Sept 8th and the official unveiling of Mike VI to the LSU faithful. Be scared college football world, be very scared.

Oh yea, he is only 2 years old now.

What's wrong with Virginia Tech? One of the top defenses in the country and a man beast at RB. It's going to be close. I'll be rooting for Tech. I think LSU wins 17-14ish, but it's gonna be good.

yes i agree they have a beast of a defense, but LSU's defense could make an argument right there with them as best in the country. and tech doesn't have near the offensive weapons that LSU has, just a RB but what good is the RB when he doesn't get anywhere because they can focus most of the attentio on stopping the run. it will definitely be a hit fest. both have amazing D's. it might be even lower scoring than that. haha even though i'm going to go ahead say that one of the teams will have two defensive touchdowns. not sure which one, i'm hoping LSU's and from the look of the DB's hands they looked good.

yes Matt Flynn can scoot.

Mark this down. LSU wins 24-6 at least.

The offense was flat last night. Why give up the entire playbook against a team that was clearly not on the same level? Wet, on the road with ******* cow bells everywhere. See Death Valley doesn't need artificial noise makers to screw up offenses, the AMAZING defense and the fans do enough of that.

woah now, slow down turbo. USC's defense can't hold the piece of butt crust off of the jock straps of LSU's defense. USC is media central, thats the only way they are number one. anytime you are the best ranked team in the SEC regardless, you should be #1. the hardest conference there is.

This topic is sad.

My take is that LSU or Virginia Tech will have the best defense in the nation. USC may well be in the top 3, but I'm just more sold on LSU and VT.

As for the game next week..LSU will have all they can handle with Virginia Tech's defense. I think the first team to 10 points may well win the game. The game is at home, but VT is going to be emotional as hell. This game will not be a blowout either way.

BLAH BLAH BLAH WE ******* KNOW THE SEC IS THE BEST CONFERENCE! Stop telling us, we get it. No one doubts it, so STOP ******* USING IT AS AN ARGUMENT. That doesn't mean you're automatically #1. Let's break this ***** down.

D-Line: SC Dorsey may be the best DT in the country, but Ellis is #2-3. That, plus Lawrence Jackson, Everson Griffin, Fili Moala win it for SC.

LB: No question it's USC. All 3 guys are first rounders waiting to happen. Don't try giving me that Ali Highsmith **** (he's good, really good). No way their LBs hold Cushing, Rivers, Maualuga and Galippo's jock.

Secondary: USC. Taylor Mays is gonna be a first rounder. Terrel Thomas is one of the more underrated CBs in the country, and Josh Pinkard is very good.

I think USC has more defensive talent, but as a unit I would take both Va Tech and LSU in a heartbeat.

Also if any SEC fan would like to have a logical arguement please don't being up the SEC being the top conference therefore your team is the best, it is the most ignorant cop-out arguement you can bring to the table. Nobody wants to ever here it and you will never prove yourself right so just don't even bring it up.

THat brings me right back to the point I already made though. If talent alone were enough then USC-LSU would've been the national title game for the last several years.

Production is what makes you #1 in anything. I recognize USC's talent (I'd be an idiot not to), but I think that LSU and VT are both better as a whole because they've produced at that level for a while now. VT was #1 in 3 major categories of defense last year and nobody left.

If MSU had any type of QB LSU probably would have been losing in the first half. LSU's amazing DL didn't do much of anything in the first half and the LBs didn't do much either. Say what you want about the playbook but I saw a lot of different stuff (Pistol offense?!?!), and I saw an OL get beat by not a very good unit. It might have just been the first game but if LSU's offense comes out like they did against MSU, VT's defense will tear them apart.

Point well taken. I really like SC's D not only because of the talent, but 10 of the 11 huys are back this year, and I think we will see them as the top D at the end of the year earning the crystal ball in the end. It's not like I'm saying LSU is Temple here, I said they're my #2 D.

SC almost always had dirty defense, and I think this will be their best. But I'm not hopping on the LSU wagon because they beat MSU 45-0. That QB was arguably the worst I've ever seen. He had a worse arm than Chad Pennington

Beating MSU so badly doesn't mean anything to me. Henning was just horrible. 3-4 of his INTs were just him throwing it up for grabs without even looking.

Last night was the most unimpressive blowout victory I have ever seen. The only things that impressed me last night were how many fans were actually at a MSU game, how good Early Doucet's hands are, and how bad MSU's QB Henig really is. I will say Craig Steltz was pretty good as well. Although Henig did throw it right to him most of the time.

I dont even wanna hear this LSU/USC argument. LSU's defense is great, and are def. top 5, but USC is number 1, hands down. As good as Highsmith is, He couldn't hold any one of USC's 3 starting linebackers' jockstraps. LSU is looking at a possible 3 first round draft picks. USC is looking at a whopping 8 possible first rounders, not even including Fred Davis who will be a first day guy for sure and Taylor Mays who will be a top ten pick in '09. Flynn would get manhandled by USC's defense, especially if he struggled against Mississippi State. I think Cushing would literally make Flynn his ***** for the day. And Flynn would accept it willingly. Dorsey wasn't impressive yesterday and Tyson Jackson was non-existant. And that was against MSU's starting O-line. What would they do against Sam Baker and All-Pac 10 guard Chilo Rachel. Not to mention the handful of times I say Highsmith take bad angles on plays and get burned by the 240 pound tailback. I'm sorry to say but this simply wouldn't be a contest. As good as Michigan was at the end of last year, they got stomped by SC, and you truly think this year's LSU team is better than Michigan's team was at the end of last year, without first overall pick JaMarcus Russell and first rounders LaRon Landry, Dwayne Bowe and Craig Davis. If you do think LSU's team is better, you are lying to yourself. Especially when all USC really lost was Dwayne Jarrett and Steve Smith, that is it! Granted, both were great players, but neither were first rounders, I believe Davis and Bowe were though. Plus USC turns out WR's like clockwork with former 5 star possible stud Patrick Turner leading the way, as well as maybe the most talented, deepest group of running backs ever in college football. Oh and they do have a Heisman-calibre QB commanding the ship also who has just as much experience as any player in college football at his position. USC will cruise to the championship and will cruise right through it. Bottom line. There truly is no argument here.

And I am a Miami fan.

Yeah, because their WR's got SO much seperation. You keep mentioning first half first half first half as if the second half is irrelevant.

Nonetheless, please remember the fact that it was the FIRST game of the season against one of the cellar dwellers of the SEC. There's no need to overanalyze anything at this point. Let's not forget the fact that VT hasn't even played yet, and their offense is most likely more of a question mark than ours is. Sean Glennon must have made a VAST improvement over last year to be formidable. They lost their starting RT to injury. Yadda yadda yadda yadda.

It's not correct, I think people are missing the point, they are the most talented, deepest and best defense in all of college football, USC will show that this year. Miami will be up there too because of our dline and secondary, I fear our Linebackers may be a little too inexperienced to push us over the top, but who knows, LB's has never been our problem before.

obviously you havent been reading some of the people's post...most people's argument is "USC has X number of blue chips, and X number of first rd draft picks, so they are the best" and thinking that argument should merit much consideration....


Thats like my saying the Longhorns had the best secondary in the nation last yr because Ross and Griffin were first rders, and Brown was a late first day pick...and anyone who watched a little bit of football knows that was far from the truth

Adkins looked great today and everyone else looked solid. We have depth at LB and I seriously doubt teams will be able to consistently run on us. Statistically we should be among the best this year, along with USC, VT & others. Oklahoma will be a nice defensive battle and test.

All you jackasses can be unimpressed all you want but the bottom line is they looked alot better than anyone else did this weekend. Not to mention they played on the road, against an SEC team (No matter if they are the worst in the SEC or not, they are still an SEC team and better than alot of teams in the nation), in the rain. They ran a vanilla offense for a reason, I mean why give up all your playbook in a game against MSU when you have VT coming to town? Next week won't be close guys. VT looked like garbage, just straight trash. Definately not a top 10 team if they play like that all year. And that great defense was pathetic.

So do you all still think VT has a better defense than LSU? I'd certainly hope not. Not to mention LSU's defense has given up 7 points in 3 years. Don't say MTSU isn't any good, they put up 42 points against Louisville and MSU beat Auburn yesterday. LSU has the #1 defense in the nation and its not really close right now.
