LSU fans should be happy with 10-2

Before the season, most experts figured that three games would make or break LSU's season -- Auburn, Tennessee and Florida -- and they were all on the road. Then Arkansas showed it was going to be a force to contend with, and the Tigers also had to go on the road for that game.

I don't think any realistic LSU fan could have expected the Tigers to go 12-0 under those circumstances. Sure, when you look back on the losses to Auburn and Florida, you can't help but wonder what might have been. If LSU could have scored on that last drive against Auburn and simply played better offensively, if LSU wouldn't have made all those mistakes against Florida ...

During his postgame radio interview with Jordy Hultberg after Friday's victory over Arkansas, LSU coach Les Miles -- borrowing a line from that famous Christmas movie A Christmas Carol -- was as giddy as a schoolgirl. At the end of the interview he let out a big yaaahoooo.

Meat Loaf once sang that two out of three ain't bad. Well, in the case of LSU's season, victories on the road against Tennessee and Arkansas mean two out of four ain't bad.

And 10-2, with a likely BCS bowl game left, is pretty darn good. Like Miles, LSU fans should celebrate LSU's season and let out a big yaaahooo.

What I'm not happy about is CBS color analyst Gary Danielson called Les Miles "Les Moss" at least three times during Friday's telecast. That guy makes too much money to make those kinds of errors. If The Times made a mistake like that, we'd never hear the end of it...
