GeauxTigerNation writers Gary Laney and David Helman get you ready for the season with a daily breakdown throughout August of what LSU is facing in the fall, from its opponents, to its road trips to who it's recruiting. Today, Gary Laney asked the questions in a Q&A with Sam Khan of ESPN.com's GigEmNation, which covers all things Texas A&M:

Q: Among Aggies fans, what's there more anticipation for, jumping to the SEC or starting the Kevin Sumlin era?

The sense that I get is that the most excitement surrounds the transition to the SEC. There are billboards welcoming visitors that travel up Highway 6 to College Station and any time there has been an event involving Aggies fans, you see the "This is SEC Country" signs out. That's not to say that there isn't excitement about the beginning of the Kevin Sumlin era, because there is. The job that he and his staff have done on the recruiting trail (the Aggies have 27 commitments already for 2013) really has the fan base fired up.
