Congrats to the LSU Tigers. That’s a great football team.

How great? I think mentioning them among the best college football teams in history is warranted. Over the last 25 years, that means squads like ’95 Nebraska, ’01 Miami, ’05 Texas. That crowd. That’s as devastating an offense as you’ll find at the college level. There aren’t any right answers on defense and Brent Venables tried a few against LSU’s awesome marriage of talent and scheme. Give Clemson their NFL DL from last year and this would have been a closer contest, but if you can’t get pressure rushing 3-5 against LSU, you’re going to bleed downfield and there just aren’t enough tourniquets.
