Let’s step into the wayback machine for second. Back in the offseason of 2010, a swirl of negativity surrounded the program. LSU was the consensus No. 18 preseason team in the nation, but the major concern was that LSU was a declining program while Arkansas and Auburn were trending upwards.
Just wondering… how did that turn out for everyone?
In case you forgot, 2008 was the last season in which LSU posted a sub-500 record in conference play. Hell, LSU has only repeated the five-loss season of 2008 once since then (2014).
Arkansas and Auburn, on the other hand… well, the Auburn pick wasn’t completely unreasonable.
