College Football Picks: Young LSU Tigers Looking for Respect in Tough SEC

LSU-TigersCollege Football Picks - Young LSU Tigers Looking for Respect in Tough SEC: When you have the #1 and #3 teams in the nation on your regular season college football picks conference schedule, you know you are going to have fight for wins. That is the situation facing the LSU Tigers as they prepare for their 2010 college football picks season. The Tigers are young with just ten returning starters returning from a 9-4 2009 team. They come into the college football picks season ranked sixteenth in the USA Today college football poll with 25-1 Vegas NCAA odds to compete in the 2010 college football national championship game.

Junior quarterback Jordan Jefferson provides not only veteran leadership as a passer, but is also the team’s leading returning rusher. LSU will need to lean on Jefferson early as their group of young rushers find their legs. Junior running back Stevan Ridley leads the way but expect redshirt freshman Michael Ford to have an impact too. Jefferson must also find a go-to-guy at receiver and senior Terrence Toliver seems the early choice. The offensive line game up too many sacks and did not create enough holes but, with eight of the top ten returning on the depth chart, this unit should improve.

Defensively, LSU is equally green, but they do get senior linebacker Kelvin Sheppard back, their leading tackler a year ago. The Tigers are cubs on the DL, after losing their top linemen, but the group is talented and deep. With seniors Patrick Peterson, Brandon Taylor, and Jai Eugene, LSU has the core for a top-flight secondary.

Sorry, LSU fans, but those 25-1 Vegas NCAA odds might be a bit kind.
