quote:So I guess we should be happy with a shot in the foot loss to Alabama and a previous blowout to Alabama, just like FSU was supposed to be happy they had the privilege of playing for all the marbles but went "wide to the right" for a couple of years in a row and lost out? I don't think they were happy and I am sure a lot of Tigers are not happy either. I'd like to see more flow than ebb with all this talent, but every year there seems to be some excuse. I'm not asking for #1 and MNC every year. I just don't like it when we do our own selves in, like yesterday. Like 1/9. Get it? It is very realistic to play your hearts out and lose legitimately and blame no one. Can you say honestly that yesterday we lost legitimately and did not shoot ourselves in the foot with that prevent defense after dominating the whole second half on defense and then conceding the Tide's winning TD by changing the D for that last possession? Do you really believe we didn't self-destruct versus Alabama (a mighty good team, true) on 1/9? If we'd lost to them in a mighty struggle, and without bonehead plays and questionable coaching calls, I'd say "ebb and flow" but no, in either case, we didn't.
the ebb and flow of sports
So IMO, until this two game loss streak to Alabama is reversed, I'll say "No, the direction of Tiger football is not all up and roses. There are major problems to address if we expect to remain among the present/future elites."
Toe to toe...but still came up short. 2nd in the nation on the rings says everything.

quote:Then you clearly don't know why you're unhappy at the loss.
I'm certainly not happy with the outcome, but I don't consider this a "shoot yourself in the foot" boneheaded choke-job.
quote:Exactly my point. It was a "play to not lose" strategy that flew in the face of what LSU had been doing all half to keep Bama stifled (and blew up in the face of Chief when they marched down the field and scored anyway).
They called what they thought would win the game, it didn't work.

Should we fire him?

I'm sure you've been saying this for years, probably since early 2005.
quote:I'm glad you're "hoping" because I'm sure that if he doesn't remedy this one situation and hire a legitimate OC - and give him the keys to the LSU offense-mobile, LSU's string of greatness is going to rapidly go downhill. And I'm going to venture a guess that you'll be among those jumping off the sunshine-pumping bandwagon first if that trend becomes more evident.
I'm hoping that he fixes the OC situation at the end of the season.
quote:No, I think it's the type that live in denial of what they can plainly see in real gametime, like you. Personally, I couldn't care less what Bama fans have to say about LSU fans. I want them to hate us because we beat them regularly, and not accidentally.
you're exactly the type of fan that the Bammers were talking about
