Do you think more teams go with UF's approach vs. LSUs offense?



UF is the only team LSU hasn't exploded on offensively. (IMO, it had to do more with LSUs mistakes and not the UF defense.) UF was the only team bold enough to only keep 7 men in the box. LSU ran well versus them but didn't get the big numbers that they are use to in the passing game and the score board. My guess is that Bama would be the willing to do what UF did. I'm just curious if other teams will take the same approach.

I don't think anyone well face will have the corners good enough to hold up in one on one coverage all day

Agree, but Florida tried to also shorten the game, and gave LSU only a few chances on offense. That was the strategy that worries me the most against Bama. If they can control the clock, by running, and get points.....Not good. It almost worked for Florida, except they weren't good at finishing drives.

With UFs CBs, you would think they would have tried putting an extra man in the box.

Hopefully Landry's ankle heals up, I think that had something do with him not being as open as usual.

UF has a better Def backfield then anyone else we will play. They respected our pass game so much, that they still only put 7 in the box out of respect for our passing game. Had they put 8, we would have been able to pass the ball better. No other team we play, including Bama is going to be able to do that. I'm thinking Bama is going to bring a really heavy blitz package and sink or swim vs our offense. Hopefully Mett looks like Oregon St did against us when Saban tried that against them. lol

Mett had an off game, he missed a few throws that would have made the game a lot less close. He wont have that many off games.

Bama and UF run the same defense which is great preparation for the Bama game. UF has better CBs and Bama has better LBs.

IMO, Chavis defense is much better versus the traditional offenses. The spread option teams tend to get have more success recently (Clemson, Ole Miss, etc.)

UGA offense > Bama offense > UF offense

Another thing to think about is the couple of missed opportunities we had early in the game versus UF.
1. Wide open Dural on the first drive that Mett overthrew.
2. Fumbled pass attempt to an uncovered Landry.

UF's defensive success was helped a lot by our mistakes. Teams will have to pick their poison. Do we load the box or play coverage? UF welcomed the running attack. The question is do others follow suit.

The UF strategy was for Mett to have an off day. I think every team has tried to utilize this strategy but it hasn't materialized. I don't foresee it happening again.

Yes.


LSU will not score over 17 points the remainder of the season. Guaranteed.

I completely agree. Landry missing two or three days of practiced showed up in the game. He had a few drops that he normally wouldn't have. I thought it was impressive when Vern said that Landry took his girlfriend on dates at the football facility to work on the jugs machine. That's the type of dedication both Jerry Rice and Walter Peyton displayed.

I also agree that Mett just had a bad day at the office. Many people gripped about the lack of passing attempts but the passing game was on and the running game was off. Last year, if we could run it, we were in trouble. Now we have both.

UGA did this and we torched them through the air. UF's secondary >>>>>>>>>> UGA's secondary.

No one else has the CB's that UF has, so no. They may try. To stop LSU, stuff the run and force 3rd and long. Even then, you are taking your chances. Never seen a team convert so many 3rd and longs like LSU has this year.

Well, I'd imagine LSU's strategy to run the ball as much as they did despite the fact UF was willing to go man 2 man in the secondary had nothing to do with it at all.

LSU was making a statement in that game and I think they wanted their OL to prove itself as a run blocking line. They've already proven to be extremely good at pass protection, but had been very up and down in run blocking all season.

I think Miles and company wanted to take the opportunity to see what they could do against a tough front, thus mitigating a high scoring game.

I doubt it, and if they do it will likely be at their own peril. Very few have the defensive talent of a team like Florida. You also see with that strategy hill ran for over 100. As much as I love the pass, LSU is most dangerous when we run the ball well. Mett was also a little off with a few throws, which made things a little closer than it had to be.
