The LSU game has been on the forefront of FSU football fans’ minds for the better part of the offseason, and we’ll continue to discuss it until the game takes place Sunday night in primetime.
The Noles enter the contest as slight betting underdogs, despite the game taking place in on a neutral site field in Florida. How do these teams match up?
Who likely wins the game? We discuss that and more in the interview below.
FSU football has been established in the FanSided network for a while with our coverage of the Noles. We’re lucky enough to have a FanSided site dedicated to covering LSU sports.
I was fortunate to discuss five questions with LSU expert John Fye from Death Valley Voice.
Check them out for all things LSU sports. The questions and answers are below:
Chop Chat: Brian Kelly is going into his second year and seems to have righted the ship as the preseason No. 5 team. What’s the overall vibe of the program? What are the expectations from LSU fans? Is it just win the SEC, or is it national title or bust?
Death Valley Voice: Confidence has consumed the overall vibe of the LSU football program this offseason. A year ago, Brian Kelly could not name his starting center a week before their first game with Florida State. Things have changed dramatically, and the Tigers enjoyed spring and fall camps, during which their offensive line was configured the same as it ended in 2022. I also think there’s much confidence in Jayden Daniels’ ability to lead LSU while building a Heisman Trophy resume throughout the season.
Kelly recently admitted that he believes the program remains another season away from competing for a national championship. However, don’t tell LSU fans that. Most fans believe an SEC paradigm shift is coming, and the next win over Alabama will not be considered an upset. Suffice it to say that we expect the Tigers to compete for the College Football Playoff in 2023.
