LSU Tigers coach Les Miles has started wavin’ flags and kissin’ babies in support of LSU’s BCS chances. If the Auburn Tigers fall, the Bayou Bengals have every reason to be considered for the BCS National Championship, especially with the TCU Horned Frogs’ national profile slipping and the question of whether we’re all really that comfortable with including the Boise St. Broncos in the big show.
But first! The Mississippi Rebels! And if that thing about Houston Nutt striking down top-ranked teams is ever going to happen, it’s going to happen once everybody’s already given up on it for the year, right? After a blistering at the hands of the otherwise helpless Tennessee Volunteers? When a team that’s gotten by on grass-fed executives calling perfectly lateral fake field goal bounce passes is a 16-point favorite, the time is right, children.
