Anyone whose read my comments knows that I stand by the Tigers through the good and the bad. This year hasn't been any different. But, the recruiting situation has me down because of so many highly rated Louisiana players choosing to play at schools other than LSU. Maybe I'm wrong and just not seeing things as they truly exist. However, something that bugs me and continues to bug me is LSU's showing Iin the 2011 NC game againt Alabama. After going undefeated in the regular system, and winning the SEC Championship game, LSU fell flat on its face in the NC game. I still can't figure out what happened to the team. I don't want to blame anyone or anything for what happened because I don't know what happened other than LSU lost in very sad way. And, I wonder if that loss is still affecting recruiting? Can anyone help me get my spirits back up?
