BATON ROUGE, La. -- Geaux Tiger Nation writer Gary Laney took your questions via email (glaneyespn@gmail.com) and Twitter (@glaneyespn).

From Joseph (Seattle): Is it that I'm too LSU focused, or is there a surplus of hidden talent in Baton Rouge? And, coupled with the motivation created by "everyone counting them out," the Tigers are positioned to have a big season?

Gary Laney: When you look at the players stepping up at the areas where LSU lost starters, they were all highly-regarded prospects.
