ESPN’S Herbstreit Picks Bama To Win The West


How big is LSU’s dismissal of Tyrann Mathieu? So big according to ESPN’s college football expert Kirk Herbstreit that it made him change his prediction from LSU winning the SEC West, to Alabama.

“We're kind of in an either-or situation with Alabama and LSU,” Herbstreit said. “They are so much better than everybody else.”

“I think that's such a significant loss for them,” Herbstreit said. "I think Tyrann Mathieu meant so much to LSU, not just with his returns and play-making ability but his leadership. I think the timing of taking him away has a negative impact on LSU.”

Herbstreit said his biggest concern for the Tide is lack of experience on defense, but he believes that Nick Saban and Kirby Smart won’t let there be a repeat of 2010.
