So no actual recognition of a record by the SEC. Gotcha. And now using conference games is cherry picking. Because conference games totally don't determine conference standing. You posted five times I a row with nothing at all to say.
Though at least now you've moved the goalposts from "the...

[quote]No sec team plays the same schedule. Bama's east opp were at Kentucky and Tenn while lsu played Florida and at uga . Auburn played at tenn and uga. Who cared how many sec teams are in front of us. Doesnt change the fact that lsu finished very high in offensive stats last year. [/quote]

[quote]It isn't really arbitrary, centennials of carries are pretty standard measurements. [/quote]
It's arbitrary because 200 carries is not materially different than 180 carries other than our preference for round numbers. It's also arbitrary in that a gap of 100 carries is relatively huge so ...

Nope. Limit the stats to in conference games only and see where we come out. Conference play is what matters, not stat padding against body bag opponents. When limited to in conference play only LSU was behind Alabama, A&M, Auburn and Missouri in YPA. ...

[quote]There is minimum (200)on carries since your ypc usually goes down with an increase in carries. Jeremy hill owns the sec ypc record. [/quote]
So he set a record for a rate stat as long as you apply an arbitrary qualifier (which he just barely meets, at 203 carries)? We're meant to believe ...

[quote]So being 12th in the country in yards per play, isnt close to being the best offense?[/quote]
Fifth in the SEC, with three west teams ahead of us. You've got a funny definition of best. Take out all of the cupcake games and you get a better picture. ...

[quote]What? Jeremy hill set the sec season record for ypc, had the second best rushing season in LSU history, and has the second best yards per game season in lsu history. [/quote]
Over his career maybe. Magee had a higher YPC than Hill last year. And a handful of other SEC RBs did as well. A...

[quote]Did you limit the stats to conference games for all the teams you are comparing LSU to also?[/quote]
Of course. Cfbstats.com let's you view stats limited to just conference play. By most useful metrics we were probably fourth or fifth in the conference when you remove OOC play (i.e. Cupc...

When limited to just conference play they were:
4th in yards per play
6th in points per game
9th in red zone conversion percentage
8th in rush yards per play
They were a good offense. But they weren't record breaking and they weren't even the best in the SEC by efficiency, in a year where ...

The defense handed the offense the ball on the 6 yard line in a tie game and less than two minutes left with a chance to put it away and they ended up taking a field goal from the 20 and leaving 50 seconds on the clock.
They deserve plenty of blame for putting up a putrid 10 points outside of tha...

People calling the 2013 offense record breaking are being disingenuous as hell. They were 6th in scoring offense, 6th in passing offense, and 7th in total offense in the SEC. They were good *for LSU* but they were middle of the road for the conference, much less nationally.
Says a lot about how...

Counterpoint: The offense has sucked almost universally under Miles. The offense last year was one of the best in school history, and had NFL talent at WR1, WR2, RB, and possibly QB, and finished 6th in the SEC in scoring offense. I'd call that underachieving. ...

It wasn't clean. You can't hit a defenseless receiver above the shoulders. Doesn't matter what you hit him with. Whether it's your helmet, your shoulder pads, your arm, your fricking foot, you can't hit a defenseless receiver high. Why do people not understand this very simple concept? ...

What sort of weird fantasy world do you live in where a team being shitty and boring is going to bring in fans? You don't have to win, but you'd better be fun to watch. LSU hasn't been fun to watch in years and now they aren't winning either. If you want fans to return give the program a shot in ...
