[quote]he was exposed in the run game[/quote]
I look at that again and still see a lost puppy with no idea of play flow or how to avoid becoming fully engaged with a OL 3 yards past the LOS. It didn't get a lot better by game 12 either. There was so much overall poor D play in the UGA game it i...

It should be hex, not hoax. A good friend who is a UT alum/season ticket holder whines about this every season. That was one of my top 3 LSU games ever attended, the orange was everywhere. Corbello was money in that game making multiple long FGs. ...

[quote]Well, other than those two, what prolific RBs have there been with upright running styles in the last 30 years? And the fact that those guys (especially AP) struggled a lot with injuries is not exactly a good thing.

[quote]L at Auburn: LSU's defense does a good job against the AU offense. However, I don't think anyone can "shut down" AU's O. They will score at least 21. JHS is an underrated and tough place to play. It might be AU's biggest home game of the year, so the crowd will be into it all game. AU's defen...
