Collins + Alexander + Copeland = virtually unstoppable.

Knowing this left side is there, cc will try others things. Then run to the left side when he NEEDS something.

Right at 200 for the game

If it plays out the way we expect, I see a slow start to the run game and a close game maybe up to halftime, but then TCU begins to wear down and if LSU gets up two touchdowns, the running game will take over. 250 yards if this happens. Less if we get behind early and have to pass to catch up, which will be possible this year. And our defense will be better than TCU fans think it will be.

We'll hit them deep with the pass and open them up. LSU gets 175 on the ground.

If LSU's air attack is successful in the first half... I see 300 yards on the ground.

We will run for 200, but that won't be the difference In the game. It will be whether we can use our TE's as outlets when protection breaks down or as receivers. Also, our passing game will have to be for more than 200 yds to win the game.

Your secondary is not going to cover our receivers if your pass rush isn't excellent. Better hope your uglies get the job done.

Obviously this is pretty much the game plan LSU has always wanted. Have the ground and pound and a vertical play action game to compliment it. Basically an Alabama offense. Soon though I think CLM can't help but implement the option with Jennings/Brazil(nasty). The question is, can the TCU D play one on one against LSU wide outs. If TCU can play D and slow down the run game, they have a chance.

That being said, I think LSU pulls away late in the third.

I remember years ago when Tulane would get our left overs and then give us hell with those players that we didn't want. There is a lot of motivation for guys that have been overlooked and taken lightly. I hope our players aren't as overconfident as some of our cocky fans, that is a recipe for failure.

Well they played Air Force for 3 of those years. But I know that's not what you meant.

So I'll go 2010 Wisconsin. The 4-2-5 did just fine against a rather large O-line, John Clay, and Montee Ball. In fact, it was an o-line with 4 of the 5 still on active NFL rosters. Gabe Carimi, John Moffitt, Peter Konz, Kevin Zeitler, and Josh Oglesby is a top 10 type o-line in the last 5 years (easily).

The players are different, but the scheme is the same and it is clearly capable of bringing a downhill, run-heavy attack to a halt.

I would be shocked if Mett's arm isn't the deciding factor in this one.

We're going to curb stomp TCU.

It won't be pretty

I'd say 38-14

You realize Wisconsin ran for over 220 yards right?

You realize Wisconsin lost right? And held below their season avg? And converted less than 50% of their 3rd downs?

Maybe "halt" was the wrong word. But they've played and beaten a team who tried to run the ball 42 times in a game where the offense had 63 possessions...

LSU's passing game will have to be on or the game will be closer than many anticipate.

We are going to eat them up with our new TE Scheme. Even if his arm is mediocre we still are going to open up the lanes with the dink passes
