What is the most dominating performance from any one player that you can remember against your team in football?
For LSU, I'm going to McFadden in 2007. Casey Dick could've sat the bench the entire game the way McFadden played. :wah:

Just getting back from the game and I wanted to say that Phil Pressey made a believer out of me.
