quote:Describes much of the Les Miles coaching era. IMO, it's his Achilles Heel, which good teams like Alabama often capitalize on and thrive on when they play us in key SEC matchups.
It isn't the risks taken, it's the complacency when LSU had the chances to put Bama away. LSU left the door open for Bama to come back and we knew they would most likely take advantage of it. Just doesn't have the killer instinct. It's "hold on and hope."
quote:Agree 100% because when all was said and done, even after Miles' 4 botched gambles, LSU still had the lead with about 90 seconds to go. Then our last drive stalled on 4th down and we turned the ball over and went limp and flaccid on defense (picture that any way you want). Bama knew exactly what to expect from us, and exactly what to do against that impotent defense we threw up. Chavis can wear goats horns for finally finding a way to lose this one. He deserves them.
it's Chavis who needs to take the heat for this one in going to the very soft 2 deep zone/2 deep man under, with a veteran QB. The pressure had been working for the entire second half.
