| Tiger Rant|| re: Protecting the sidelines - Housplants on 11/9/14 at 3:37 pm|
If the head coach does not have input regarding the style of defense that is played during a drive like that, he should not be the head coach.
When you have held a team to less than 40 yards in the second half, why would you completely change the defensive scheme during the last 50 seconds when u...

[quote]Honestly, how did it take them this long to bench Welter?[/quote]
This is why this cannot be considered his best coaching season. Welter was a known quantity coming into this season. He started all last year and never displayed the tools of an SEC MLB. I am still stunned that we had to g...

Was the definition of targeting.
Helmet to helmet contact after launching on a player that was looking the other way (blindside hit).
I can't believe that a coach has to send that to the conference office. They ought to review plays like that and issue suspensions even when the penalty is not ...

[quote]And what team will be dumb enough to not put 8 or 9 in the box?[/quote]
Every team we play will stack the box unless Les allows the offense to be opened up. If he puts some receivers on the field and has the QB that can throw to any to them (not just Dural on the fly pattern) on 1st and 2n...

TOP, as with any stat, can be misleading.
We went three a number of times back to back in the fist half. The Defense was already gassed.
The long QB run for a TD was a scheme problem. On 3rd and 3 we had all LBs in blitzes on the outside, apparently expecting a pass. Once the QB got through li...

When the defense knows that you are going to run the ball up the middle almost every 1st and 2nd down, it is difficult for the OL to not look terrible.
I will reserve judgement on the OL until I see them get to play 1st and 2nd down when there are not 8 or 9 defenders in the box.
As far as off...

Gurley got tons of carries, and he played on a team that had a good passing game. He was not running into 8 or 9 in the box on almost every play.
LF has already proven that he can be a serious threat in the passing game, and he...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Rob Bolden will transfer from LSU - Housplants on 7/14/14 at 6:15 pm|
I think the poster probably also would like to see the backup get meaningful snaps instead of just handing off. If the opponent can't stop the 2nd string QB, can it really be called running up the score.
This is one of Mile's weaknesses. He refused to let anyone other than the starting QB get mea...

He is a north south runner like Hester, and he finishes runs the way Hester did, always getting the maximum yardage he should get. But he is much quicker and not as bog.
McGee reminds me of Ray Rice, both is physical appearance and the way he runs. To me, McGee is the most consistently effective ...
