LSU Picked To Finish Second In The SEC
The SEC Media Days had their ups-and-downs last week for LSU. Multiple players were named to the pre-season ALL SEC team, but the team itself was not selected to win the conference.
It's not only that The Tigers were selected at #2, it was more about who was #1...Alabama. That's salt in the wound. Here's more on the SEC Media Days from the Louisiana Radio Network:
"We are (less than) 50 days away from LSU’s season opener against Wisconsin at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. During his appearance at SEC Media Days, Coach Les Miles says the Tigers will be ready.
Junior running back Leonard Fournette goes into the season as a Heisman Trophy candidate. He was the front-runner for the award for most of last season, but Fournette says individual accomplishments are not his top goal.
The league’s media selected LSU to finish second overall and second in the Southeastern Conference Western Division. Alabama was predicted to win the SEC championship as the Crimson Tide earned 223 points. LSU was second at 59 points."
