SI has a midseason crystal ball post: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/football/ncaa/10/21/midseason-crystal-ball/index.html?eref=sihp
Scroll down and under "flop" teams of the 2nd half of the season almost every on of SI's writers picks LSU as the biggest flop. Several predict that LSU will lose 3 of its last 5. Lots of snickering about the "mad hatter."
You wonder what LSU will have to do. Before UNC it was the biggest game of the year. Then it was WVU. Then Florida was going to wipe LSU out and start them on the road to losing four games. Now it's Auburn. What if LSU beats Auburn? Will they be the worst 8-0 team ever and destined to lsoe 2 of 4?
