Several Las Vegas experts are predicting that LSU will finish tied for fourth with Ole Miss in the SEC West with an 8-4 record, behind Arkansas, Texas A&M, and Alabama.
I’m not sure I totally agree with that.
I could see LSU finishing 8-4 — that seems about right after the last two years and the attrition the program has dealt with. But Ole Miss AND LSU finishing below Arkansas? Yeah, I’m not so sure about that.
LSU is still more talented than the Razorbacks. And I think Kelly is the better coach. Plus Ole Miss is coming off a 10-win season and they just landed USC transfer quarterback Jaxon Dart. Sam Pittman has done a great job at Arkansas, but it’s hard for me to see the Razorbacks finishing above LSU and Ole Miss in the SEC West in 2022.
