LSU vs. Alabama Predictions: By Football Media Experts
Written by 

It's now only hours away from the big show-down between LSU and Alabama, a SEC college football game between No. 1 and No. 2 in the nation, which has captured the nation's attention  as if it were the BCS Championship game.  

Here's how the media is predicting the score of the "Tussle at Tuscaloosa":


Mike Huguenin, Rivals, Inc: LSU 20-17.

Larry Burton, Bleacher Report: Alabama 34-17.

Vegas Sports Betting: LSU covers.

Lars Anderson, Sports Elevated: Alabama 17-14.

Jeff Schultz, ajc.com: Bama covers 4 1/2.

Rob Weintraub, NBC Sports: LSU 27-21.

John Tamanda, NBC Sports: LSU 20-17.

Mike Bianchi, Orlando Sentinel: LSU over Bama by 5.

Stewart Mandell, Sports Elevated: Bama 27-20.

Les Miles

In honor of the Game of the Century and three of my favorite quotes, three of my indecipherable quotes from LSU, here are quotes from LSU coach Les Miles:

"There's a time when you have to put a lot of distractions in the perimeter."

"I think  this team has a lot of fundamental teammanship to it."

"The game looked a lot like I expected it to look  upon like I expected it to."

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
