(WVUE) -

In this edition of FFF: Vegas gives no love to the LSU Tigers, U.S. Men's National Soccer Team is seeing a youth revolution, and Chick-fil-A, a fast food titan.

FOOTBALL

Vegas released their win totals for the upcoming football season, and LSU wasn't looked on favorably. 

"The guys in the desert" said LSU will win SEVEN games this year, that's it. I'm not buying it. 

The addition of Ohio State transfer Joe Burrow will only make the roster better. Personally, I think Myles Brennan has the talent to start the opener against Miami in Arlington. Oh yeah, the Tigers are also underdogs in that matchup by three points.

LSU's defense is stout, and the offensive line and receivers are top-notch.

Plus, LSU host Georgia and Alabama. Always makes a season easier facing your two biggest opponents in Death Valley. 

I say the Tigers finish 10-2. So yes, take the OVER on wins. Seven is way too low.

FÚTBOL

It still pains me that USA will not be in this years' World Cup. I will still watch, but it won't be the same.

Optimism is high for Team USA going forward, with a youth movement taking over the roster. USA beat Bolivia 3-0 this week, and the scorers all were not of legal drinking age.

Walker Zimmerman (20 years old), Josh Sargent (18), and Tim Weah (18) notched goals for the Stars and Stripes. New blood means new enthusiasm, and a spot in the 2022 World Cup.

FOOD

I don't eat fast food often, but when I do, I usually gravitate to Chick-fil-A. 

Main reason, the Chick-fil-A fried chicken sandwich is fantastic. Also, the chicken minis are pretty tasty for breakfast. 

One of the other reasons I frequent Chick-fil-A is customer service. It's some of the best in the industry. They're quick with orders, run to help with refills, and the restaurant is always extremely clean.

I'm not the only one that feels this way. It's tough to get in the parking lot sometimes in NOLA, it's always packed. I brave the lines though, because I also have an affinity for the chocolate milk shake too.

    The AP preseason poll came out today, and of course Alabama is No. 1. I'm going to breakdown a few teams in my Top 25. This is the 9th year I'm doing an AP poll. Fist off, no shock, I have the Tide in the top spot. Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, doesn't matter who's at QB. Week one they play Louisville in Orlando. Right now they're only 24-point favorites. Georgia holds No. 2 in my poll. Another year of Jake Fromme under center is a great reason to have the Dawgs here. South Carolina ...more>>
