I think it's good that we got embarrassed. Yes Clemson is a good team but they're a team we should have beat. Furthermore, the entire LSU community complained that we were better than the Chick-fil-A bowl. Now it appears, not so much.
My hope is that what Mettenberger said, that he'll remember this throughout the offseason, remains true. Except for South Carolina through maybe Mississippi State, we underachieved all year and had players who were foolish and consequently expelled from the team. Hopefully the Clemson loss is humiliating enough that it forces players to re-evaluate and work hard. I also hope it gives Coach Miles pause on his offensive philosophy and gives all the coaches impetus to double down next season.
