How Do You Like the LSU Tigers Now?

Does anyone doubt the Tigers now? No?

I didn't think so.

How can you when this last close and hard fought game against Kentucky swung in their favor.

If you told people at the beginning of the season that the LSU TIGERS were going to be the SEC Champions they would have laughed in your face. 

Their new coach has really turned the team around from last years 6-10 in conference to an astonishing 10-1 and the SEC championship.

Their real test will come in the NCAA tournament but their 25-4 record says a lot.

They may have lost to Texas A&M, got blown out by Utah, and had a tough game against Xavier, but if you can beat Kentucky, Alabama, and Tennessee, you deserve respect.

Look for good things in the post season for this team. And like I said, how do you like them now?

Where can I comment?
