    The Advocate Baton Rouge: 5 reasons LSU should leave SEC

    LSU writer straddles fence with two articles.

    http://theadvocate.com/sports/4741258-32/five-reasons-lsu-should-leave


    The time has come.

    Imbalanced, arbitrary football schedules, unfavorable bowl politics and a conference office that frequently indicates it is ignoring LSU’s concerns and needs have led the school and its athletic program to this point:


    It is time to consider seceding from the Southeastern Conference.



    Too much Rammer Jammer for Tigers, while in Alabama's shadeaux.

    Oh, Susanna. Oh, don't you cry for me, for I come from Alabama with a banjeaux on my knee. G'wan to Louisiana my true love for to see.

    Five reasons LSU should stick with the SEC

    Rabalais is a rabble rouser. LSU ain't going nowhere.

    I'm glad he noted "scheduling inequities" which have plagued Bama, as rivals got a bye before playing The Tide.

    LSU’s membership in the Southeastern Conference has hardly been a perfect marriage, especially in recent years amid growing inequities in football scheduling.

    But there are plenty of reasons to stay put in the SEC. Here are five of them:

    Hopefully the SEC gets this schedule thing straightened out. lSU will never leave the conference but, I can understand their frustration with the schedule the last two years. I kinda like the way the Pac 12 uses a hybrid approach to cross conference scheduling.

    So basically the rational for leaving is to get away from Alabama.

    If you do not like the Bowl game you were invited to here is a concept, win more games. I am so sick and tired of the typical LSWho fan attitude, it is not their fault they cannot win the big games because they were screwed one way or another.

    I couldn't get the first article to come up. All I got was the banner for the paper and the SEC logo with the LSU arm breaking off.

    Yeah, they'd be dumb to go. Would they want to leave behind the top football and baseball league?

    The Advocate Baton Rouge: 5 reasons LSU should leave SEC

    I don't remember hearing any of this crap from LSU when they beat us 5 years in a row. And I don't hear Florida whining about having to play LSU every year. Good Lord, these corndogs absolutely irk me to no end.

    Yea there schedule has been real hard. They had Florida, South Carolina and Texas A&M than a bye than us. Thats murders row right there even with a bye. If that was us we would be just a bit upset also.

    I agree but can't blame the guy for venting and trying to bring light to their situation. In the Big 12 they would be in Texas shadow at least here a rising Tide floats all boats hehe.
