First, FSU is still worthless. The Semis managed to lose at Wake Forest despite them wanting revenge for the 30-0 beat down they received from the Deacs at Doak last year. So much for Xavier Lee being the answer to all the problems. The classic Xavier Lee meltdown is half complete, with him going 24-44 and 2 interceptions last night. All that’s left is a 3 INT + a fumble or two and him getting yanked for Drew Weatherford in the 3rd quarter, who will promptly lead a drive that stalls out in the red zone for a field goal.

In other words, they can handle 24,000 crazy Wildcat fans leaving Rupp, but not 70,000 leaving Commonwealth Stadium after a big win. Speaking of Rupp, apparently the LSU team is staying in the hotel connected to Rupp Arena, and tonight will be the “Big Blue Madness” celebration there. That means the Tiger players could be (read: will be) disturbed all evening by rowdy basketball fans making noise in the area and the surrounding area all night. Luckily for them, it’s a 3:30 game.
