2012 LSU is one of the strangest CFB teams I can remember



LSU has one unbelievably dominant win over a BCS team who isn't too horrible

LSU dominated the best team in the country for a half, and should have won if not for some coaching brainfarts

LSU's only other loss came about b/c we suffered a ton of injuries in-game, along with some coaching brainfarts...and that was to an SEC school who has only lost 1 game all year

yet,

we barely scrape by an absolutely horrible Auburn team (maybe the worst non-Vandy SEC team since LSU has been good again)

we barely scrape by a bad Ole Miss team at home

we have trouble with a 1AA school

this is a team of extremes...the most bipolar team of the BCS era

It reminds me a lot of 06. What does that mean? Championship next year

What about how the offense and defense have each done 180's through the course of the year?

Ole miss ain't bad and was clawing and scratching for a bowl game. . AU played the game of their lives that night they have given up We embarrassed them last year as we did Florida and ole miss. College football is the most dynamic sport in the world for a reason. Oline attrition/injuries and suspensions taken into account with our schedule and I am surprissed we only lost 2

Offensive struggles really held back this team. Vadal Alexander and trai turner might have saved the season.

2010 fits that description also.

The last 2 Ole Miss games in TS (10 & 12) were so similar it was almost weird.

2 Points:

1) road wins at Jordan Hare are rare. If we do ever get a W there, its ALWAYS by the skin of our teeth.

2) LSU has had a total of 1 convincing win/wins over the Mississippi Rebels in Tiger Stadium since 1982. (1995- 38 to 9)

This team is pretty much 2006.

No running game hurts us on the road. Auburn 06, Florida 2012.

2006 really came on strong offensively just like 2012.

Struggled to beat Ole Miss.

Never seen any other team's offense and defense switch extreme's like that.

Kinda sounds like all of our teams under Les




Which makes sense because he's one of the strangest coaches that I can remember

We are definitely rusty defending the spread. Looks like the coaches invested too much in stoping bama then worrying about other

LSU slept through the Fresno State and Alabama games. They were lucky to get to overtime against Ole Miss.

No running game killed that team just like it hurt LSU this season.

LSU dominated FSU so badly that their coach was giving us blowjobs in the media for a while. we physically manhandled FSU

we won that game 38-6

that was the one "wtf" game

we've had like 4 this year

miles' decision not to use keiland early may have lost us the Auburn game, but that's it. everyone shite the bed against UF (and had bowe not given another pick to UF in the endzone, we probably would have won that game)
