Betting the Tigers' win total

8/24/2012

Well, this is certainly a new one.

In handicapping LSU's win total for the fast-approaching season in this story, Will Harris is betting the under on 10.5 wins for the Tigers.

Nothing wrong with that. The Tigers have had a tough offseason, and the SEC is a bear of a conference to emerge from.

What's more curious though is that Harris suggests that LSU's quarterback situation could cause problems this season, and not necessarily from a production standpoint. The unique circumstance caused by Jordan Jefferson's arrest last year created an air of team unity and sense of purpose that might be hard to replicate.

It's an interesting thought, and one that I hadn't heard throughout the hundreds of preview pieces this summer.
