- Jordan Jefferson is our only QB to ever start 4 bowl games. Hodson and Herb had chances but we imploded in both of their Sr. seasons. AJ has a chance to replicate JJ’s feat.
- I don’t think JLee ever took a snap in bowl game. (ETA: see correction in post-below)
- We made history this year: f...

[quote]congrats to Kevin Faulk, this award is truly deserved. he was key in turning around an LSU program that had 6 straight losing seasons prior. he outran people, ran over people, made great cuts, caught passes, returned kicks... a great LSU Tiger all around. [/quote]

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: The enemy of your enemy is your friend - AlwysATgr on 12/8/13 at 12:39 am|
I agree with the premise of the OP. While Auburn will be a tougher game Bama may become slightly easier. Hoping that we could then beat them both.
Saban probably has more connections in LA than does Malzahn (I'm guessing this is the case). And it may be that Saban will take players from LA even ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How would our D held up last night against either? Auburn/Mizzou/FSU - AlwysATgr on 12/8/13 at 12:28 am|
Probably don't qualify as a resident expert but here's my take:
- I think we would probably go straight man with our CB's on their wideouts. If you can do this it allows you some opportunities to gamble in other respects.
- Count it a 'win' if there's a stop, TO, or a FG
- Play possession ball w...

The wishbone took flight in the late 60's and was very successful (Texas, OU, Bama, A&M) but by the early 80's it was mostly a relic.
Not sure what Malzahn is doing but it has got most DC's stumped. It's unconventional and I think most DC's are trying to defend it using conventional schemes. Ain'...

Does Jeryl have no one in his family/background that can slap some sense into him? Forget about his talents in athletics for a moment, he's just making one stupid, selfish decision after the other. Just sad.

Where new QBs struggle in the SEC is on the road. That doesn't bode well for us; road games next year at Jordan-Hare, the Swamp, Kyle, and Arky.
Our expected replacement has looked great in ltd time. Bowl game should tell us more. ...

Enjoyed the highlights; you got a lotta game Abraham. Would love to see you doing it in Tiger Stadium on Sat nights!
Question: did your coaches give you grief for bringing that int out from 8 yds deep in the EZ?

[quote]Its the fact that he has inconsistent hands as a WR. [/quote]
I just don't get this. OBJ's hands are fine.
Don't know if he goes pro or not or where he'll be drafted but his hands aren't a concern.

During the Arky broadcast it was noted that Landry-OBJ were only the 3rd SEC receiving tandem to both eclipse the 1000yd mark in a season. The other two were UF ('96 and '01 I think). If so, then I think we're the first team in SEC history to have:
3000+ passer (way to go Mett!)
Two 1000 yd rece...
