Trivia

How many weeks (not counting this week) has LSU been ranked Associated Press No. 1 in its entire history?

Also: Name the season(s) in which this was accomplished.

Update: Jack chimes in with the full and complete answer below.  Congratulations!

LSU was ranked #1 for 6 weeks in 1958, including the final poll on December 1. They were ranked #1 for 8 weeks in 1959, including the preseason poll. So that's 14 weeks in 1958 and 1959. This is the first time that LSU has been ranked #1 in the AP since November 2, 1959. Geaux Tigers!

This is the first time that LSU has been ranked #1 in the AP since November 2, 1959. Geaux Tigers! (even though we don't deserve to be ranked #1 after that dismal performance in the Superdome)

Ironically, the last AP #1 to play in Tiger Stadium was Florida in 1997. Gerry Dinardo's Tigers knocked off the defending national champions 28-21.

Where's my check?

;)

Seriously, we're about to find out a lot about my LSU team. The next 4 games look like this: Florida, @Kentucky, Auburn, @Bama. That's a pretty serious gauntlet. The offense is really missing Early Doucet and a healthy Matt Flynn and hasn't been the same since the VA Tech game. And while the defense is good, they aren't the 85 Bears as many have made them out to be. While this team is capable of running the table, I would be really surprised to see them finish out the regular season unblemished. Regardless, it's going to be a fun ride...

Heh, will a dose of profound respect and an imaginary gold star suffice?

I don't know if it's news or not yet, but a temporary roster change is going to make your roster much improved for this weekend's game.
