Mizzou obliterated the same mediocre Arkansas team that had dragged its Nutt all over Less in DV. Oklahoma, USC, UGA were all probably better than us at that point as well

Wait, where did you come from? You don’t act like other LSU fans. Seems like a trap

12 years later, and still 2007 remains the craziest season of the century.

I love our entire fanbase, but this is not the place to find our more objective fans

Team was a walking MASH unit by December.

Defense banged up.
Flynn playing with a bad ankle.
Even Steltz fricked his wrist up against Ohio St.

By the end of the season, I'm pretty sure the entire starting 22 had been legitimately injured at some point.

Dorsey and Highsmith got hurt too. But the Arkansas game was more on the offense IMO: patchwork defense wore down after being on the field constantly. It was 7-6 at halftime!

Flynn being 7-22 at halftime didn't help at all. It absolutely should have been AT LEAST 21-7 at halftime.

re: Relive the 2007 season....
Like other posts I’ve seen in the thread about wins that were there and somehow found a way to lose; yeah this was one of them....sigh.

Oklahoma was up 24-7 on Colorado, got comfortable and then lost 24-27.

Sooners also lost to Texas Tech in which Sam Bradford was knocked out with a concussion. Our backup nearly brought us back before falling short.

It would have been nice to see how OU would have done had they had the chance to play LSU or Ohio State for the title, but I don’t know. Sooners somehow handed Missouri its only two losses and still Missouri was the better team at seasons end. Sooners got up for certain opponents but then faltered against inferior ones. It was 2007 though. Every week matchups were unpredictable.

Miles’ “Undefeated in Regulation” quote, at the time, was so ridiculous that it eventually became an iconic one considering all the twists and turns. Kentucky and Arkansas weren’t bad that year. LSU lost both in overtimes where the result easily could have been in their favor en route to a 14-0 season. LSU was preseason #2, made it to #1 a couple times, entered the NC as #2 and won it all.

IMO, West Virginia and Missouri were the only formidable opponents for LSU. And had Missouri and West Virginia won their last game, that would have been the BCS title matchup! LSU coming out on top was just a fitting end as it all worked out; start top two and end #1.

You've got that right.

Led 27-17 with a minute to go in the 3rd, LSU ties it at 27-27 midway through the 4th, Arenas takes a punt to the house to put Bama back up 34-27, LSU scores twice in the final minutes and Alabama loses by a TD.

That 2007 Alabama never lost a game by more than a touchdown, lost in OT against 11-2 Georgia, beat east division champs Tennessee by 24 and nearly beat LSU. They were so close and yet so far away.

It doesn't really change much. The best 2-4 teams come from the same 10 schools every season.

At that point, with all our injuries, sure.

When we took the field against Ohio State?

fricking nobody was beating us then.

This was one of the dominos LSU needed to fall, I remember West Virginia being a huge favorite. Then Pat White goes down and their high power offense just couldn’t do shite.

Edit; West Virginia was a 28point favorite

I remember watching that game almost in disbelief and thinking, “LSU is in!“ After the disappointing loss to Arkansas, and the win over Tennessee, I was happy that LSU had won the SEC, but thought the team was out of contention, and suddenly everything changed. Mizzou lost, not really shocked, and the huge unanticipated upset of West Virginia. Watching the clock tick down....

You try to use the transitive property for sports, then accuse others of not being objective.
