LSU Tigers Ranked at No. 16 

Wait a minute. LSU’s only 2 losses are to Mississippi State and Auburn, which according to the Selection Committee, are the No. 1 and No. 3 ranked teams in the country. At the same time, they have wins over Ole Miss and Wisconsin, two teams in the Selection Committee’s Top 25.

Yet they are all the way down at No. 16, behind two other 2-loss teams? That makes no sense. How is LSU behind Ole Miss when both have 2 losses and they beat Ole Miss? A greater travesty, though, is that after Ole Miss, they are behind three Big ten teams and Oklahoma. The Sooners are another 2-loss team who don’t have near the resume LSU has.

So what is the Selection Committee basing this off of? Just like Ole Miss, the LSU Tigers should be in the Top 10 right now in college football despite having 2 losses, and just like Ole Miss, we have them in our Top 6. Nothing should change that right now.

This team has played one of the toughest schedules ever so far, and to have it at No. 16 with its record is an absolute travesty. Les Miles and the whole area of Baton Rouge has a right to be livid.
