The Wake Forest Demon Deacons have some showing and proving to do before I can back them against good teams, especially on the defensive side. The LSU Tigers have shown flashes here and there of being a good team, and we can't ignore the fact they had Dayton beat as well. LSU could be looking a lot better in the light right now if it finished games better. Still, I see potential in LSU. I'll lay the bucket in this spot with LSU given what we've seen so far.
