[quote]giving the ball to hill on 2nd and 3rd and 1 vs. Clemsom[/quote]
I've always had a bit of a problem with this analysis for a couple of reasons. First, we were having trouble running the ball on third and short in that game as I recall. I think we failed twice to convert on 3rd and 1 or 2...

Oh, also, since he brings it up, he was pretty average against all three opponents, especially compared to his counterparts in those games, if he's going to bring this up. In those three games, he had 201 yards on 50 carries, for an average of 4.0 ypc. His counterparts, Gurley and Marshall for UGA...

I can explain it to him. Our defense couldn't stop UGA for most of the game, then in the 4th quarter we got a huge stop, and OBJ dropped a punt and handed them a free TD that was the difference in the game.
Against Ole Miss, Mett threw three first half INTs that we could never recover from.

I can't think of a year where one college team produced rookie NFL starters at QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs and a starter on the O line. Can anyone think of something comparable? Maybe one of those great Miami teams or a Husker team that produced 4 O linemen? The year Carson Palmer was picked at USC? ...

It's funny to see where these threads go after a couple of hours. I just thought it was interesting that a pretty knowledgeable guy about football (he did actually play at the sport's highest level, by the way) and who has seen almost every big game in the SEC over the course of the last 8 years or...

If they were 4th in the committee's rankings last week, and they sort of "lost" in a toss up game with a freak "accident" against the No. 3 team in their rankings, why should they move at all? Don't mention the loss to LSU the week before because the committee already concluded they were 4th WITH t...

I agree with the idea that it's hard to compare. It is funny that, as Scott mentioned on Dandy Don this morning, it feels like Fournette has still not lived up to whatever ridiculous expectations Tiger fans had before the season yet he will shatter the all-time single season freshman APY record, an...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anyone know the LSU record for freshman allpurpose yards? - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/30/14 at 2:49 pm|
I agree that Hilliard was a beast back then. That was the first game I attended (that Oregon State game - his first as a Tiger) that I really have a great recollection of.
However, also remember that Fournette didn't really become the "starter" at RB for a few games AND he is sharing carries wit...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Anyone know the LSU record for freshman allpurpose yards? - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/30/14 at 2:42 pm|
Just looked up Hilliard, and he had 1,270 all purpose yards. He didn't return kicks, and he had 901 rushing and 368 receiving. I don't know if that included the 12th (bowl) game though. As I recall, they didn't include those stats in cumulative season totals back then....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anyone know the LSU record for freshman allpurpose yards? - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/30/14 at 2:34 pm|
I looked up Kevin Faulk and he barely broke 1,000 in all purpose yards. The only other one I can think of is Justin Vincent and he had around 1,100. He may have already broken the record.
And, I also want to point out that he has not padded his stats against lesser competition. His two biggest...

I actually believe this is very possible. And it has nothing to do with thinking Miss. St. is bad or overrated. I think Arky is poised for a breakthrough and this is the perfect game for that. They match up well with the more power teams in the conference: Miss. St, LSU, Bama. I think I'm more ...

I mean, in time for the Alabama game. I would assume the folks in Birmingham would want LSU to be at full strength for the big game, right? Given that the NCAA took about a week and a half to clear him, it seems like 10 weeks should be long enough for the nice folks in Alabama (the state, not the ...

I agree. We should also give props to the entire D-line, particularly Hunter and Rasco, who have really stepped it up in the last 2 games after a very shaky start to the season. Since we shored up the middle, it really allowed our back 4 to make plays. What Chavis has been able to cobble together...
