From @RabalaisAdv: Trying to hold back the deluge, #LSU finds itself on rare ground against Auburn -- playing spoiler


Quote
In Louisiana, weíre always trying to hold back the water.

We pile our levees into the hills we never had. We keep our pumps running day and night ó most places.

Heck, even the land Tiger Stadium stands on was a swampy bottom land once, hardly a suitable place for one of the largest structures of its kind in the country.

If you donít work at it, the water will reclaim everything.

Itís sort of that way with LSU football as well.

Since 2000, LSU has built itself into a national power. Two national titles ó only five schools have done that this century. Played for a third. A bigger slice of NFL opening-day rosters than any other school.

But the specter of losing, of tumbling back into the bad old days of the 1980s and 1990s, always seems to be something LSU is trying to hold off at armís length.

Last weekís stirring 17-16 victory at Florida was a gritty, emotional rebound from one of the lowest moments LSU has had in many years: the loss at home to Troy two weeks ago. But it only counts for one win, and you only get to celebrate for so long.

In the Southeastern Conference, proving yourself is an every-week, every-down test.

And so it is for LSU as it returns home to host No. 10-ranked Auburn. Kudos, guys. Great effort in The Swamp. Now go out and do it again.

Frankly, youíve got to go one better.

#LSU has beaten No. 10 #Auburn 27-23 for what we believe is the biggest SEC comeback win since 1977.

This is the biggest SEC comeback win in Tiger Stadium history since at least 1949, #LSU announces.

Down 20-0 vs. Auburn, LSU had a 4.2 percent chance of winning.

They took it.


Will need to update these models based on recent developments and game outcomes at the NCAA and NFL level.
