The top three reasons, according to Rabalais were Nick Saban, Alabama wins a lot and a sense of entitlement. The 10th reason didn’t even have anything to do with LSU. No. 10 was Harvey Updyke, the infamous Bama fan who poisoned oak trees at Auburn’s Toomer’s Corner in 2010.
One reason not listed was Alabama’s recent success against the Tigers. The Crimson Tide have won the last four contests, including the 2011 BCS Championship Game. LSU will get an opportunity to settle the score Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
