We interview ourself on the week’s most important topic, the Battle Royal in the Bayou.
Q. Yes or no, can App State beat LSU?
A. Yes. Any team is beatable. That’s why you play the game. Otherwise, Perfectville would be population 2.
Q. But is it likely App State can beat LSU?
A. Let’s just say there’s a chance App State can win. I wouldn’t bet my house on that. Maybe the dog. But not the house.

Q. Are you seriously comparing App State to two SEC programs?
