Remember last year, when Florida kicked our hapless asses? We looked like shite in all phases. All we got was 2 field goals in the first half and were shut out in the second half.
They kept the ball for 37 minutes to our 22. We had 1 third down conversion out of 13 attempts, while the Gators conv...

That Ole Miss team was unranked, missing 6 defensive starters, with a 1st year coach, and a QB who was not SEC caliber and probably couldn't have even started for Grambling. But keep tellin...

Main point is we have been in contention a lot, and we should be able to fix this single issue.
The sky is not falling, and we have a great coaching staff!
The LSU program is alive and well.

I'm not offering a solution, just observations.
Bama at LSU, 2012
Clemson, Chic Fil A Bowl 2012
At Georgia, 2013
At Ole Miss, 2013
If we had stopped Bama at the end last year, we would have played in the SEC Champ and maybe even won another BCS title.
If we had stopped UGA and Ole Miss a...

Plus, by going old school smashmouth, Miles challenged our weakest areas, O-line and Defense to step up big time.
Those guys were light years better tonight, maybe because Miles and his coaching staff put the game on their shoulders and challenged them to get the job done.

Doesn't matter what our chances are to win out.
Right now, we still control our own destiny, and that will continue each week that we win.

As long as we find a way to win, our defense can keep getting better.

Look, like everyone else, I had hopes of 14-0 this season.
But it has become very obvious to me, that our defense has been taking way too long to grow up, and my biggest question has now become "Can our defense mature in time for us to compete for the SEC West title?"

He threw pinpoint passes over TM7 and Eric Reid and made them look like rookies.

Offer was 100% legit. Arkie admitted to making serious run at Miles. If Miles had accepted, he would be gone and would be the highest paid coach in the country.

That is not how this works.
Arkie has offered Les $5.5 million per year to go there. Now LSU has to decide whether they want Les to stay and whether keeping him is worth more than his current $3.75 annual salary.
LSU will offer him a raise for two reasons.
First, his current market value h...

The winner of the SEC Championship (12-1) will play the Dame (12-0) in Miami.

Nice, constructive post, poncho.
I guess you don't like to even consider the idea of playing a backup QB, even if it might spark your team.
I'm not suggesting we play him, I'm just throwing it out there and asking if anybody has inside info on Rivers' progress and an opinion to share.
