It seems to me the genesis of Les Miles current dilema began when L.S.U. rematched with Alabama in the BCSNC game January 9, 2012. Since that whimpish-inept-anemic effortL.S.U. has essentially dissapeared from CFB. The reasons for all of these unusual issues are debated often around the state of Louisiana but one thing I think we can all agree upon is this: L.S.U. did not show up to fight on January 9, 2012 Why? I can't begin to figure this out, but the stage set, namely the BCSNC, provided LSU an opportunity to avenge all the years of domination at Alabama's hand and an opportunity to put the state of Louisiana firmly in command as a recognized power in CFB.
Alabama as an economic power is soft-n-weak as is Mississippi. No professional teams in any sport for either southern state. These two states claim to be head-over-heels in love with athletics but no pro teams in any sport. Louisiana on the other hand out produced the state of TEXAS in 2011 in petroleum related product output for the first time in history! Yet we can not organize and defeat Alabama. It's like a nightmare right out of Hitchcock.
