take a breath, people.
We haven't played anyone yet with a decent offense. Yes, I'm counting Wisconsin (they have an awful QB), but they were gashing us in the first half.
If we're still shutting teams down after playing Auburn, Bama, Ole Miss, and A&M, then I'll agree we have something s...

Good grief man, do you not follow college foorball at all?
There are no polls or voters that matter anymore. There is a 13 member selection committee that will select and seed the four playoff teams. ...

He's the buzz because he flashed a Heisman pose after scoring a simple TD against an FCS school, and every rational person realizes that it was ridiculous. That's why he's "the buzz". ...

[quote]I watched Arkansas v TTU and it pains me to say watching Arky road grade the flashy passing TTU into the dirt in the 4th was very entertaining[/quote]
I agree, but it wasn't a case of Arky wearing Texas Tech down. Arky was able to blast off the line and open gaping holes from the very beg...

never understood the hate for Danielson. The guy is the best color analyst in the game. He sees everything immediately - which I guess comes from his years as an NFL QB. He gives us actual analysis, unlike most other color commentators who just repeat in words what they see on the screen.

[quote]Wait so they were thin on the D line and you're telling me it was a bad strategy to smash into them all of the first half. Did they get injured on pass rushes?[/quote]
No, I'm saying that we were fortunate that they got hurt. True, they were thin and maybe we would've worn them out anywa...

true, but only when we have more horses than the other team.
That's not the case all the time, especially with the upper half of the SEC. ...

And why in the world wouldn't we open it up against Sam Houston and ULM? Based on how our defense was shutting them down, they had basically zero chance of beatin...

[quote]The strategy did not work for three quarters of the Wisconsin game, but Les stayed with it and that worked out pretty good. [/quote]
you're conveniently leaving out the fact that two of Wisconsin's starting D line got hurt in that game, and they were already thin there. That was a big, bi...

[quote]I think as far as points allowed goes, this year's group could match them. [/quote]
Sure, our "points allowed" looks good so far ..... but we haven't played anybody with a decent offense!!!
For a half, Wisconsin ran the ball very well on us until we figured out they couldn't throw at al...

[quote]A waste of time question. Doesn't matter what we think just what they do on the field. Still way too early in the season, especially with so many young players to be comparing us to other teams we haven't played.[/quote]
Completely agree. Just a question to promote arguing, with no answer....

[quote]Actually they probably won't. The expectations were set waaaayyy too high for LF. He will be a good back for LSU and one day may end up being all-SEC, but he'll never be the AP type of back people were saying he'd be. He's just not that quick, elusive or good. [/quote]
Agree for the...

except for the 24 yard run for a TD (which was nice), LF had [u]9 rushes for 28 yards [/u]against a crappy opponent. Yes, I know you can't discount the long run, but you have to pay attention to the larger sample size of the rest of his carries.
He's good, but nothing special at this point. W...

again? More poll worries? Thankfully, now that we have the playoff committee, those abominable polls are now irrelevant. And thank god, because they're horribly flawed.

ignore the polls.
Now that we have a playoff selection committee, the polls are meaningless, unless you're just looking for something to argue about - which to me gets very tiresome. Besides, the polls are horribly flawed, and should get zero of your attention. ...

No. No one should care what the rankings are now that we have a playoff selection committee.
Polls are (and have been for decades) horribly flawed. I basically ignore them, as I've always done.
