That game needed to happen despite the inferior opponent. It gave Miles a clear picture at the QB position (I hope) and also inspired confidence in the team that they still are very talented and can do what they are capable of doing against that kind of opponent.
Perfect game for Harris to take ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The Script for Saturday - Cracking on 9/29/14 at 11:16 am|
LSU REALLY needs to make a couple big/timely plays. Let's hope Harris shines in the spotlight and creates fear in the remaining teams with the combo of him and LF.
Let's hope negative OP is way off. I see LSU jumping ahead early, getting conservative on the road and trying to hold on in the 4th ...

There is only one answer to this question and it's to penetrate with the DTs. If the DTs can't/don't get penetration, it gives the read option too many cutback seams and forces the LBs/DEs to hesitate on the fake. If the DTs get push it effectively allows the pursuit to swarm to the ball instead of ...

Looked like a classic non-contact ACL tear to me. He planted and his leg internally rotated and knee buckled medially. He will be back though. May God bless DT with a speedy and total recovery whatever the case may be....

All of you talking trash about LF should wait until this young team grows a bit more. He isn't the game breaker we hoped at this point based mostly on poor QB play and learning the speed of the game. If Brandon Harris can open the offense, I think most of the doubters will change their opinion on LF...

What could have possibly happened at practice for Les to think Jennings>Harris? And how could we not have tried Harris and an open offensive scheme sooner last week?
The mysterious Miles.
I'm still trying to figure out the Welter>Beckwith thing?
I'm not complaining just curious.

You can't just change that shite midseason.
He can mix in some misdirection, Toss Sweep to go with Toss Power and flat passes to back up LBs a bit, if they find some way to complete them.
LSU will have a real m...

Chavis' problem seems to be Corey Raymond.
When Ron Cooper left the defense has gradually become mediocre. The DBs always look confused and out of position when they play a team with a decent QB. Since Cooper left in 2011 they have contributed to losing games on defense because of this problem wh...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Has the game passed miles? - Cracking on 9/24/14 at 9:17 am|
Sorry for the long response, but I believe Les' strategy in the run game IS out-dated and it effects the passing game by making predictable formations.
I think his style/strategy of running the football is old-school. I can't explain why in 2013 LSU runs a pro-style offense and spread formations...

My biggest gripe is Miles being paid 4 million a year and when his team gets blown out by ANY team it is unacceptable. A man making that kind of money is not entitled to put that embarrassing product on the field. You can give every excuse in the book (youth/inexperience...) but when you are one of ...
