Comparing our situation when beating Wisconsin to LSU's situation when beating Arkansas are so striking different that it's not even funny. LSU was well on the right side of the bubble. Many think we HAVE to beat Wisky to get in. Huge difference.
Yes LSU was on the right side of the bubble. But let's say they lose to a terrible team in the SEC tournament. Without the Arkansas win, that bad loss might knock them out. But with that Arkansas win they are basically a lock no matter what happens. So yes, it definitely affects us.
