    Bayou Bengal's ok, but got dam he takes homerism to another level.

    I know a few LSU fans like that. I have an family member who will tell you LSU's never been beaten before. They've simply just given the games away that they didn't win.

    We have an NFL QB, two NFL WR's (ODB and Landry), and an NFL RB (Hill).

    The Florida D is good, even after losing your best player on D (Easley), they are still going to be a challenge, but make no mistake we are going to score 28 points or more on Saturday.

    Make no mistake, you haven't scored a touchdown on us since 2011, so claiming at least 4 is weird.

    I just don't see it. You've played dismal defenses.

    And the last time UF came to Baton Rouge they were destroyed 41-11, but I don't think 2011 or 2012 will have anything to do with what happens on October 12, 2013.

    This is a different LSU team from 2012, your refusal to recognize that fact is a bit odd.

    True

    Going by this years LSU team, and Murphy's efficiency, UF should hang roughly 37 on LSU's D.

    I mean, its worse than Arky. And we hung 30 pretty easily on them.

    You got me re-evaluating and you may be right.

    You're right, this is an LSU team with absolutely terrible defense. I'm not refusing to recognize that

    Mettenberger has improved greatly and is making some incredible throws from the games I've seen, but it's really his receivers that have elevated their offense. He throws about 80% of his passes to either OBJ or Landry. He's basically making two reads and throwing and one of them is usually open.

    I'm interested to see how Mett responds when he gets a bit of pressure on him and both his 1 and 2 options are defended well.

    I really like your confidence, it will make the final results on Saturday that much more satisfying.

    Geaux Tigers!

    Well there's confidence based on stats and relative and then there's just blind, dumb confidence.

    The sad thing is that we won't see you after you guys lose again and fail to score 27 points.

    Sure you will, win or lose, I'll be here. Although if, as I expect we win easily by pulling away in the 2nd half, I won't exactly be too welcome on this board.

    Really enjoying the tigerdroppings thread wherein most of the predictions have LSU in the 40s.

    Nor should you, as it generally is not a very healthy thing to do for too long.

    Yep. I don't recall many of the Tiger fans returning then, either.

    Well since its a guarantee, care to lay 20:1 on the under? You take the over. Since its a lock, that's really good odds for you.

    So you want "BayouBengal" to wager money with "truefloridagator?"

    And how would you propose that we ensure the loser pays up?

    How about instead of money we simply agree that the loser is banned from GC?
