re: Best LSU Receiving Corps Ever List (Statistical Analysis)


We have so much depth at wide receiver this, it's incredible. List goes:
Beckham
Landry
Boone
Leslie
Dural
Wright
Peterson
Diarse
Maybe Williams at 6'3
Possibly spears at 6'3 as well.
We gotta bright future at the WR position quite frankly.

yea, i think we were so fixed on power running in '07 that flynn's stats didn't really take off

If Flynn hadn't missed two games he would've broken the LSU single season attempts record. He ended up only 8 behind Rohan.

LSU has a proud passing history, but the INT has always been our nemesis as Wickersham, Howard, and Booty all finished with more INTs than TDs. Chad Loup: 12 TDs, 12 INTs. (Lee, somehow, didn't, finishing with 31 TDs to 21 INTs).


Great post filled with interesting stats. After reading about Lee's 31 TD to 21 INT ratio, I went back and isolated his statistics after his freshman year:
18 TDs
5 INTs
174/296
2076 yards

Very solid TD to INT ratio. I don't think LSU has ever had a QB show as much statistical improvement as Lee did after his freshman year.

Bruce Johnson recruited Wendell Davis. Bruce was my best friend (RIP). He said they clocked him and his speed was very ordinary. But he outran everyone who tried to cover him so they signed him anyway.

Just one of those guys who was faster in a game situation..

That 2006 squad might be one of the most underrated teams in the modern era of CFB.


Most talented team at LSU, IMO.

Give these guyus credit for one other thing.
Thru the years, LSU WR's have often been VERY good at downfield blocking.
Clayton, Lafell, Doucet come to mindright away...

Clayton was the best, Bowe immediately comes to mind after him.

2 things:

Josh Reed was the best WR in LSU history. He was uncoverable. Only lacked top end speed. Set the regular season receiving record for all major conferences at a school that isn't historically pass happy. The 2001 corps was the best ever because Josh reed was so good and he had a first round pick across from him.

Jarret Lee had more TD passes as a frosh than any other LSU great? wow.

Good to see all the love for Josh. He was truly un-coverable, although, probably because of Clayton and Jerel, not many teams besides Tennessee totally sold out to cover him, and that SECCG wasn't his best game (obviously Rohan was hurt). I've really never seen anything like what Josh did that year, but I would like to see him against today's SEC defenses.

In '06 you had 3 pro receivers tho, tough to beat. ('06 total passing yards: 3272; '01: 4,022; but our defense was better in '06). Damnit I want a dynamic offense again, we were so close last year.

quote:

Why was Bert Jones splitting time at QB in '70, '71?


He possessed as strong an arm as any quarterback in college football history and finished fourth in Heisman Trophy voting in 1972. As a 1972 All-American, he was the first player taken in the 1973 draft (Baltimore)

Jones didn't like the dual quarterback system at LSU because he only got to play half as much.

Question: How did you like the two-quarterback system at LSU and the coaching staff?
Answer: "The LSU coaching staff was old school and not very smart at either understanding or adapting.

"LSU was playing two quarterbacks all the time, primarily a run-option type quarterback. That just wasn't conducive to my style. They did some things that were not copacetic. They told me that I would be calling the plays, and then I didn't but that wasn't any big deal. I played only half the time while i was at LSU.

Q: What was their logic there? Were you just shuttling in plays from the bench?
A: "No, you'd go in for a series, and then come out for one or two, and then go back in. It was a weird deal. I may have one NCAA record. I'm the opnly quarterback in the history of 1A college football who only played half the time and was second string, who made consenus All-Anerican, and who was a first-round NFL draft choice. We had one quarerback who could throw the ball and one qarterback who could run. So, they threw the guy who ran and ran the guy who threw,"

Q: What kind of seasons did you team have?
A: "We were very successful, and we were probably ranked in the top 10 during my three years."
