The pundits will be back at it again this week. We can't win in Baton Rouge at night. LSU D will be out for blood. They are just too great, and have too many great players. We will be lucky to cross the 50 down there and Mad Hatter is just awesome. I love it, I want them to continue to disrespect us!!! Makes the winning that much sweeter. I'm proud to be a runt!!!
I think a lot of them will pick us to keep it rolling.
#3 now in the polls - a couple of significant national pundits calling us the best team in the country - sounds like a whole lot of respect to me!

I don't know how LSU can score on us, seriously. Zach Mettenberger is one of the worst starting QBS in the SEC. He's a UGA reject for God's sake.
I agree! Thats exactly what we need and want them to say. LSU opened as 4 point favorite. Most handicappers have LSU's home field advantage at night, around 5 points, which would make us a 1 point favorite on a neutral field. The biggest challenge going forward will be to make this team believe they are not as good as they might think they are. Being the underdog is exactly where we need to be this week.
I wouldn't go that far as of yet.. If Marcus can get the lanes to tote the rock we win. Very important to effectively run the ball this weekend. Id like the pass rush going into this weekend though. Mettenberger will be Hamburger.
Why do we care what they say? It doesn't affect the game, except maybe to give our kids ammunition. You are correct it is better if they keep underestimating us.
Wish it was this way and like that we aren't favored but there's a lot of BIGTIME talk going on about us (just heard Pollock, Palmer and Herbstreit a minute ago) and I hope our guys don't let it sink in. I wish we could sequester than all and tell them only that we're the underdog. We've got a great team and some great leaders but none of them have ever been in this position before. Uncharted waters. I hope SOS' experience of being here helps. Man...this is fun.

As long as they are talking about us then it doesn't matter what they say. All that matters is they are talking about us. If you expect every single person with an opinion to pick us then you'll be waiting a long time. Some will and some won't....but for 3 weeks we are one of the top if not the top stories in college football. That is cool as hell. Not to mention it will help us close strong on the 2013 class and set us up nicely for 2014...2014 could be a HUGE class for us.
SEC - Iron sharpens iron.
