We know: all the dudes LSU landed on Signing Day '09 won't necessarily see big minutes next year. We know: Florida has a boatload of people coming back, including a two-time national champion at QB. We know: this 2009 projection has four SEC teams in the Top 15. But will you look at LSU's 2009 schedule? UF at home = tough and Alabama on the road = very tough, but they could sneak out of the SEC, couldn't they? (Put $20 on 'em for 2010 if your people will let you.) We feel pretty sorry for Steve Sarkasian on that September 5 game, as a side note.
