Between injury and suspension LSU lost 6 starters by the 1/4 mark of the season. Add in that LSU lost 7 starters from the 2011 SEC Championship team and it quickly becomes clear that this was a rebuilding year for LSU. The Tigers played 15 freshman in 2012, only one off the mark for most in the country. That Coach Miles was able to keep everyone focused and still win 10 games and be ranked up in the top 10 at the end of the regular season is extremely impressive.
