It wasn't so long ago we were nursing losing streaks to all of our November rivals ... LSU, MS State, and Auburn. 2008 was a critical -- and somewhat unexpected -- year in that we exorcised those demons. In 2009, of course, we took it all. The bad taste in our mouths in 2010 was as much for the November losses as any failure to repeat (or the ridiculous flash in the pan of Auburn.) It was, in many respects, 2005 all over again.
I'm no statistician, but LSU looks pretty even on a macro level. The conference and overall point spreads are roughly the same, and for both teams, our 5 vanquished SEC foes (Bama: Ark, UF, Vandy, OM, UT ... LSU: MSU, UK, UF, UT, AU) have 5 SEC wins among them. Do I think Ark is a better win than AU, or our Swamp win over UF was better than LSU's a week later in Baton Rouge? Yes, but don't be fooled, this is pretty close.
The fact is, I want to win November. December and January will take care of themselves, but 3 of our 5 SEC West rivals play us in November.
I think we'll take care of business on 11/5. We're Iceman, they're Maverick. Don't forget who won Top Gun. We're the Terminator, and they don't have enough dynamite.
Can't wait to see us execute.
