They're one of the few programs that are good and usually a trainwreck all at the same time.
    If Saban had gone to say.... Texas or Ohio St, I don't think the hate would be so big. The big sin is that he went to Alabama.
    They try to say that Saban lied to his recruits at LSU and left. Well all coaches do that. Les Miles lied to his recruits at OK St and came to LSU.

    Most of the LSU fans do realize that it is Saban that turned LSU into a winning program. Les Miles has done a good job building on that.
    But most LSU fans thinks Les Miles is an idiot... a winning idiot, but an idiot just the same.

    LSU has been a great game for several years now, and they have by default became our #1 Rival.
    We are the teams everybody hate.
    We have the best & maybe second best coaches.(Sorry 'Freak').
    I have one problem with LSU being our #1 Rival.
    I don't hate LSU... (Maybe with more time)
    Like I say, they consider us as that but I don't think of them much. It's not like I go around all season, saying "what is LSU up to?". I know if we beat them (which we do more times than not), we're moving on to the SEC Championship game. In my mind, that doesn't make them a rival, just recently a decent and quality foe.

    There is no team that they want to beat more than Bama. The Bama/Saban hate is thick.
    It is right up there with the most intense Alabama/Auburn hate.
    And, again, I can go back to the 70s in BR when that hatred for Bama was just as intense...it just didn't get the attention it does in this day and age, due to the media. CNS coming here only made it more intense, but the who fans have always hated Bama passionately.

    Re: Do we seriously count LSU as a rival now?

    This.. The Duck Fans holding the anti BAMA sign during game day, the Nebraska, Texas, Ohio State, Florida all SEC Dog/Dawg fans at work remind me how much they want to not only beat us, but also watch someone else do it. The BAMA hate is deep. Huntsville AL is unique in that there are many different fans here, due to military/Gov Civ /Contractor jobs insourced from all over. I used to enjoy arguing with barner and vile fans, but now I have to argue with all of them. LSU now ranks up there with the rest. How sweet it is!

    We still have to beat Auburn and Georgia. It's not a given, at all.
    We have to play some football.

    Re: Do we seriously count LSU as a rival now?

    I guess a rivalry is defined differently by each. What if LSU returned to it's historical traditional self of being a solid mid tier SEC team. Would I get up for that as much as I do now? The answer (for me) would be "no". I've always thought a "rivalry" had nothing to do with the records or the situation. It didn't matter if both teams were 1-10, the game was still considered a HUGE game. But honestly, if LSU had been an 7-5/8-4 team for the past ten years would we really feel the same passion about that game as we do the Auburn/Tennessee game? I think for many Bama fans the answer would be "no".
