IMHO we are by far the biggest surprise (and disappointment to SEC fans) of the "bowl season." The idea that an SEC team ranked 3rd in the nation, a team that came within a fumble of very possibly playing in the NC game, would get blown out (and yes, it was a blowout despite the final misleading score) by an unranked Big East team was almost beyond my comprehension.
Law I'd actually be interested in why you thought lsu would lose to Clemson. Clemson had proved nothing all year except that they could score on lesser opponents. What's your take?
