Saban puts LSU fans in despair

Walking out of Tiger Stadium on Saturday night, amid the wreckage and debauchery known as the LSU Nation, I couldn’t help but flip the calendar back 52 weeks.
On that November night in 2007, LSU survived a bloody brawl in Bryant-Denny Stadium and a small group of their fans were hooting and hollering about Nick Saban, decrying Alabama’s current state while boasting of their own lofty ranking and likely shot at a national championship.
A year later, the most repugnant and pathetic group of fans in college football was strikingly silent. There was little mouth from LSU Nation, but a few who could manage three or four words without a hiccup and a stumble filled the cool autumn air with incendiary insults for the victorious Tide.
