Mike says It's Time For A Bird Sandwich

LSU dawns the Purple and Gold jerseys for the first time this year as they welcome Eastern Michigan U. to Tiger Stadium Saturday Night. The Eagles (1-3) should pose little problem for Leonard Fournette, and I suspect he runs for 150+ yards the first half and sits out the second. It's the last opportunity for the LSU offense to work out the 'big yardage gain penalty problem' before the tough schedule that lay ahead. Look for the air game to open up, and keep your eye on WR  Malachi Dupre, it may be his night to shine. 

Elsewhere in the SEC:
                                                             The Game to Watch
The 3-1 Alabama Crimson Tide (#13)  travel to meet the 4-0 Georgia Bulldogs (#8).
With one conference lost, this is a must win for the Tide, with the Tennessee, LSU and Miss.St. games still ahead.  With their backs to a wall and going in as an underdog for the first time since 2009, this means just one thing:  BIG TROUBLE FOR THE DAWGS. There is no way in hell I'd bet against a Nick Saban coached team in a position like this. Bama shows their steel, hit their stride and shows the Ole Miss game was a fluke. Bama by 9. 

#3 Ole Miss visits the swamp to play the Florida Gators (#25). As much as I'd like to see the Rebels upset, this is not the week. But they will again struggle, but victors in the end, even tough they should be penalized 6 points for having the ugliest color themed uniforms in the league. (Okay, it's just a girl thing). Ole' Miss by 13.  

Diogenes @ 8-1 through week 4
