LSU Football: 6 Reasons the Tigers Are Bound to Overachieve/Underachieve
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

LSU fans have learned to take the good with the bad.

With Les Miles leading the Tigers, LSU is a prominent program with star athletes filling the playing surface. Under Miles, the Tigers have also experienced unrealistic expectations, which oftentimes find Miles' LSU teams underachieving. Last year is a great example. With nine (eight not counting Honey Badger) LSU players taken in the 2013 NFL draft, a championship-or-bust mentality is understandable. 

The bar is lowered for 2013, though. No longer a favorite to win or battle Alabama for an SEC West title, the Tigers are overlooked heading into the season. That's a good thing. Still, the Tigers' fanbase expects close to a 10-win season. There's reason to believe LSU will either overachieve or underachieve such a goal. Let's look at it from both an optimistic and pessimistic point of view.

Let's get the bad news out of the way for you pessimists.
