Game 1 did not go as planned for Brian Kelly and the LSU Tigers, but the season is not over. We’re just getting started.
LSU lost the opener last year and still ended up one win away from being in the College Football Playoffs. So, the sky isn’t falling. LSU will get a chance to fix everything that went wrong over the course of this season. That will start at home against Grambling State this Saturday.
Paul Finebaum was asked his thoughts on LSU after their loss to Florida State. He still thinks the Tigers have a shot in the long run.
“LSU can come back. I’m not concerned,” Finebaum said on McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning. “Brian Kelly is a superior, elite coach. (I’m not sure) whether he can completely fix all the problems, but he’s not going to see a team like (FSU) for a while. And I think that’s to his advantage.”
He makes a good point. LSU won’t play a team that is ranked as highly as Florida State was until the Tigers take on Alabama in November. A lot can change between now and then.
