What we learned: Guice still believes Alabama is scared of LSU

Is there magic in the air for LSU and new head coach Ed Orgeron?	 	 	 			LSU football coach Ed Orgeron

"I'm very grateful for my time at Ole Miss", he said.

What he did on Monday (again) was to tell a team that has won 17 straight SEC games, by an average margin of 21 points, they were scared against LSU in 2016. "But I will say this as the head coach at LSU, I will always do my best to protect the state of Louisiana". "I need to find out why I was not successful'". "I had to find out the things I needed to change". He called mentors, like Jimmy Johnson and Pete Carroll. I thank Pete Carroll (whom he coached under at USC). "That is the biggest thing for me, seeing him being a leader out there and making sure everyone else is ready because a lot of people have to learn this new offense, the freshman that just came in this year, they have a ways to go like Myles Brennan, and just seeing his passion and energy means much more to him".

"Number one, I was going to treat the team exactly how I treat my sons, no different", Orgeron said. "If I wanted to be a head coach, I needed to start acting like a head coach, not a defensive line coach". "But, we have done it. He knows this offense backwards and this guy can really dig into an offense and give us a chance to compete with the upper echelon teams in the SEC which is where we want to get but we haven't been with our record and we want to be an upper echelon, top team in the SEC competing for the championship and we believe Matt can do that for us".

But while there's no clear way to truly show whether there is any significant separation between the two SEC West powers, LSU's own players understand what's made the difference on the field over the last five years.

Improve - don't gut - health care law
Polls have shown the majority of Americans are actually happy with the Affordable Care Act . Health care is an issue that is very sensitive to Americans' daily lives.

Of course, LSU won't merely be content with winning the Citrus Bowl after the bar was raised by Saban and Miles with two national titles in the 2000s. A lot of factors had to happen for me to get the job at LSU. They're very high. But we have the same expectation of our staff and ourselves. We need to prepare.

Coach O's three-year stint at Ole Miss from 2005-07 was a total disaster. By comparison, Alabama has lost a total of three SEC during the past four years. After discussing the fact that the freshmen were elite, the first name to come out of his mouth was the one that would've surprised LSU fans the most several weeks ago.

Orgeron said there will be a quarterback competition in camp, although he added that, "Right now if we were to play, Danny Etling would be our starter". They do a great job of evaluation. Alabama is the benchmark. "So I don't know if it's that big of a gap".

It's that last team against which Orgeron will be measured, in 2017 and beyond. "And if you can imagine, just from a practical standpoint, we had a few war games in our office about 'what if.' It's no longer about two schools agreeing, it's about the commissioner having the authority to designate when the game may be played". "Let him do his job the way he needs to do it and if we had to make an adjustment or a correction I'd do it in an office and we'd do it professionally".
