On November 3, 2012, LSU was seconds away from giving Alabama it’s first loss of the season, but a touchdown by Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon with 51 seconds remaining destroyed LSU head coach Les Miles’ plan of another BCS Championship. Alabama would lose the next week to Texas A&M.
That loss shaped the remainder of the college football season, and instead of LSU having a shot at another glass ball, Alabama wound up being crowned the champs once again with some luck and some wins.
The Tigers eventually lost to Clemson in the Chick-fil-A bowl. A 10-3 season does not sit well with Miles.
Miles says he can’t wait until this season starts.
LSU’s offense will be run by a new face. Cam Cameron, who was fired by the Baltimore Ravens in the middle of last year’s NFL season, is the Tigers’ new offensive coordinator — ironically Baltimore went on a magic run to a Super Bowl win once Cameron was let go.
Miles says Cameron will have the offense running smoothly.
Miles says he’s aware of number of things can derail a season, like player suspensions and things like that but he says his players will be responsible young men.
Once again Miles says he knows the SEC is going to be tough.
LSU opens up at home against TCU August 31, but the bigger date is November 9, the rematch with Alabama.
