Every year since there 2007 championship it seems as if the LSU Tigers have the potential to win the SEC and even make a trip to the BCS.
But every year they disappoint and lose a couple of games here and there and they don't look like they can compete against opponents like Alabama and Florida.
But with coach Les Miles on the hot seat this could be the Tigers year.
First off Jordan Jefferson will have to become the leader of a struggling offense and be able to throw the ball with accuracy while still making plays with his feet.
Another threat that I look for on LSU is Russell Shepard. I expect Shepard to become a threat at both running the ball, catching the ball and even throwing the ball a little bit as he is such a dangerous athlete. He clocks in at a 4.36 40 and has very impressive hands while catching the ball.
Two huge losses for LSU are both on defense. Middle linebacker Kelvin Sheppard who lead the team and the SEC in tackles was recently drafted and cornerback Patrick Peterson was also recently drafted with the fifth pick in the draft.
Les Miles does a good job recruiting and developing players into very solid players especially on the defensive side of the ball. If that can happen the LSU defense could be very solid.
A game that could make or break the Tigers season is there first game against the Oregon Ducks in Arlington, Texas at the Dallas Cowboys stadium. It will be a tough game but with if a win happens then they could go on to win the national championship.
