Not playing safe to guard against a fake punt on Bama's 4th and short at midfield in the 3rd quarter with score tied at 17. After the time out to preserve the 4th and short, I even saw it coming and I'm not qualified to coach pee wee FB. Gary Danielson saw it coming. LSU coaches did not.

I think that LSU Football has been a net contributor and not a net user of state funds for a very long time because it is true. That is why I think that.
