I've watched a little bit of LSU and they suck. Not sure on Michigan but I think they suck too.

I think both teams are pretty similar defensive teams with poor offense. LSU has played a much better schedule though.

Michigan is +200 in ypg, LSU is only +50.


IDK how they blew out UGA so much but LSU was pretty lucky in the Miami game. Miami is not a good team but still out gained them in week 1.


Your definition of sucks must be different than mine.

A team that is 6-1 or 7-1 doesn't suck, regardless of their competition! Now, if you want to say the coots suck, or Tennessee sucks. or UNCheat sucks, I'll go with that!!

Michigan because I think their offense is slightly better. Defenses are comparable.

LSU wins.

Michigan lost to another SEC team in their bowl game in January.

LSU is much better than usc.

Playoff? LSU. Better resume to this point and if they somehow beat Alabama, then it's no question. But Michigan has a better loss (since apparently that matters for some reason).


It would be a 12-9 game ...

Who cares who wins - they’d get crushed in the big game

Michigan. One of those perennial teams who will simply be overrated due to their "massive" attendee ratio (ie graduates watching TV).

It's a friggin shame a team is elevated to near God-like status due to the number of students who attended a school. Notre Dame, USC, OSU, Michigan. Then the second tier teams which get the same treatment - Texas, Florida, Florida State, Miami.

Who cares if you won a million games a friggin thousand years ago? I certainly don't!

Base a team's strength on its abilities. Not it's past. Sick of that ####.

Amen.

It's going to be a tough call if they were to both end up as 1 loss teams. Michigan has a decent chance of winning out and getting in, but LSU will likely end up losing at least 1 more game.

If they were to play each other, I think it would be a good game. Michigan has a better defense and a better offense than LSU, but LSU does have better athletes and more team speed than Michigan. Given how one dimensional LSU's offense is as well as the strength of Michigan's run defense, I don't think LSU would be able to move the ball against them.

Conversely, LSU's defense hasn't been nearly as dominant as Michigan this year while Michigan's offense has been better than LSU. The advantage in the pass and rush defense of LSU vs the pass and rush offense of Michigan is much less than the advantage of Michigan's defense over LSU's offense in each of these categories.

Just compare these rankings:

LSU is 25th in total defense, 33rd in rush defense , 37th in pass defense and 6th in defensive efficieny .
LSU is 85hth in total offense, 47th in rush offense, 103rd in pass offense and 32nd in offensive efficiency.

Mich is 1st in total defense, 7th in rush defense, 1st in pass defense and 3rd in defensive efficiency.
Mich is 56th in total offense, 32nd in rush offense, 94th in pass offense and 14th in offensive efficiency.


Despite LSU having a slightly more difficult SOS than Michigan so far this year, it doesn't make up for the difference in productivity of their offenses and defenses which can be seen in the efficiency rankings that are adjusted to strength of opponent.

I don't take any team that loss to the coots in the last calendar year seriously.

#1 defense in the country and a less inept offense. They are better on both sides of the ball than LSU.


For Those Saying Michigan

it has been 5 years since a Big 10 team beat an SEC or ACC team in a game that mattered.

What exactly is a game that matters?

Wisconsin beat Miami in the Orange Bowl last year. If you think that was a meaningless bowl game, Purdue whipped BC a few weeks ago in a regular season game.


I think it would be a very evenly matched game

LSUs offense seems like it regressed some.

I'd give a slight edge to Michigan right now. Even though the B1G is the most over rated league in history.

If LSU is there, it means they beat Bama. I would take LSU.


Nope. I'd bet the under.***
