Call it what you want. A gut feeling, intuition, or taking a trip down myopic lane … I’m calling my shot across the bow of USS Saban. LSU beats the Tide this weekend.

And to really add insult to all those who will shun my prognostication … LSU will win by more than a touchdown.

“911 ... what’s your emergency?”

“Houston … we have a problem.”

“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”

Please 'Bama fan … save your diatribe. Yes, I’m a homer and I’ll homer all I want to.

Here’s where the stat crunchers go into convulsions trying to digest such a prediction. If you’re betting on the game, your chips would most likely be placed on Red. If I was a betting man and I was given one choice to pick the winner for a million dollars, it would be hard not to bet against the Tide.

But to discount that lightning can strike in the form of a deadly LSU offense would be foolish.

You’re right; Alabama brings to the table a super nasty defense, no question about that. But there is no team that 'Bama has faced yet to tune up that D in getting ready for LSU’s offense.

“I’m sorry Mr. LSU Homer Guy, did you just say that The Tide should be worried about an offense that has looked more like a junior high discombobulated science project?”

Yes I did. And I am here to say that the LSU offense will be more impressive than Oregon’s beat down of USC last weekend. Maybe not the amount of points, but it will be impressive against one of the best defenses in the nation.

I guess this is where my "featured columnist" position is in jeopardy if I’m wrong?

So be it. I still "feel" like this weekend will be a good day in Tiger Nation.

I’m normally very nervous about big games when so much is on the line for LSU, but call it what you want, I’m calling it a decisive win for the Tigers.

So 'Bama fan ... make sure you wear those Tide detergent boxes with the toilet paper rolls on top, you’re going to need that TP to dry a lot of tears after tomorrow.

Geaux Tigers! LSU 27 - Alabama 13
