COLUMN: Tigers Will Have To Find A Way
by Scooter Hobbs
BATON ROUGE ó Understand that getting to Omaha has never been quite as easy, certainly not as routine, as LSU has made it look over the years. This yearís bunch faces a particularly daunting obstacle. Namely, this: The Tigers are not the best team in this NCAA tournament super regional. Something called Stony Brook is. Itís not a deal-killer. The Tigers can work around it. Itís doable. Theyíve done it before, in fact. For that matter, itís never been properly explained how they won this yearís Southeastern Conference regular season championship. So with the LSU-Stony Brook series tied 1-1 and with Omaha on the line in todayís noon game, thereís reasonable hope. Iím not sure how the Tigers managed to end up in a tie thus far, but at this stage youíre pretty much done questioning the unexplainable.
