re: Where has Chavis's aggressive approach gone? - slack691
Haven't watched the replay of the Georgia game but I can't recall us rushing more than 4 at any time. I might have missed a couple of plays but I do know that Murray seemingly had all day to throw and a quarterback of his caliber will kill you unless you make him feel the pressure. Can't understand ...

re: Our Run Blocking...Is it that bad or was TCUs Dline that good? - slack691
Ztiger87- you are right, I should have taken sacks and kneeldowns out. But I think runs by FB should be included. My reason for taking out the one long run is because it is an "outlier"- not representative of the other runs in the game. My bottom line is this: 1) Miles tries to pound the ball too m...

re: What is your opinion on how well the Oline run blocked? - slack691
Amen to that. Been waiting for years to see us run out of the spread. Glimmer of hope: On Magee's second TD, we were in a 3 WR set and Magee ran up the middle for an easy 4 yard TD. Contrast that with so many times we have been stuffed using the Jumbo set. Hope this is the start of a trend....

re: Les Miles - slack691
I think LeonPhelps makes a good point. IMO, Les is a really classy guy with a lot of character and that is why he is such a good recruiter and why, for the most part, the players love him. But he WILL drive you crazy with his offensive philosophy and/or play calling. Give me Les' managerial skills, ...

re: Our Run Blocking...Is it that bad or was TCUs Dline that good? - slack691
Watching the replay-I must have missed it last nite, but on Magee's second td from TCU's 4 yard line, Cameron had them in a 3 WR set, i.e he spread them out. Result: easy TD right up the gut. I have been waiting for LSU to use this approach rather than the "bunch 'em up" Jumbo Set that Miles has bee...

re: Our Run Blocking...Is it that bad or was TCUs Dline that good? - slack691
By the way, Magee's long TD run was, I believe, the only running play that was not between the tackles, or at least was the only one that could be considered a stretch play. What ever happened to the toss sweep? It seems that few teams run that these days....

re: Our Run Blocking...Is it that bad or was TCUs Dline that good? - slack691
I understand what you are saying, but the fact remains that we only averaged 3.1 yards per carry in 47 rushing attempts, which does reflect that on a vast majority of our rushing plays (97%) we were pretty mediocre. It sure seemed that there were at least 12-15 rushing plays in which we gained 2 yar...

re: Our Run Blocking...Is it that bad or was TCUs Dline that good? - slack691
Said it was "decent" not bad. I just think we could run the ball better if we didn't use the Jumbo Set so much. It has gotten frustrating over the years to see Les rely so much on smashmouth football, which seems to me works best when you have a clear talent advantage. Nowadays, there is parity of t...

re: Our Run Blocking...Is it that bad or was TCUs Dline that good? - slack691
48 carries for 197 = 4.1 ydss. per carry. Take out Magee's 52 yard run and we have 47 carries for 145 yards = 3.1 yards per carry. Decent, but not too great. We can stop teams from loading up in the box by running out of the spread or, in the case of Magee's short TD run, splitting the linemen a lit...

re: Takeaways from the game last night - slack691
Agree with u on most observations, especially the one about we (and everyone else) run the ball better out of the shotgun or a 3 or 4 WR set. A lot of LSU fans think we have a dominant runnung game-not true. Last year we averaged 170 yds. per game (50th in FBS),4.2 yars per carry. hardly dominant. I...

re: Let's talk about the new offense - slack691
I'm with Independent George. Les has always wanted to have a power running game but there are very few teams that can just line up and run the ball down their opponents' throat- there is a general equality of talent. Especially hard to do against an 8 man front. Even Alabama can't do it consistently...

re: Name a bad defense lsu has had under Chavis - slack691
Chavis has done an excellent job overall but I agree that he inexplicably has the D play too soft sometimes, especially late in games. Against Bama last year, on their last drive, I think Bama completeed 3 15+ yard passes ON THE SIDELINE! In my opinion, that shouldn't happen in that situation. Also,...

re: Biggest Concern going into 2013 - slack691
I second that. I was never sure if it was Studrawa's fault for being totally unimaginative or if Miles was making him so conservative. Guess we will find out this year for sure. Or maybe Miles will trust Cameron more....

re: Why do people assume Miles wants to run it down people's throats? - slack691
more significant than the #of running plays vs. # of passing plays is the TYPE OF PLAYS that LSU runs. At halftime of one of LSU's mid-late season games, the TV color man showed a LSU play from LSU's previous game. The play was: LSU with 7-man offensive line, 1 WR on each side, QB and 1 RB. Both rec...

re: The LSU / Les Miles TV dramedy continues.... - slack691
Food for thought: LSU total offense rankings since 2008: 2008 55th, 2009 112th, 2010 86th, 2011 86th, 2012 76th. Note: 2010 was Gary Crowton's last year. To those who point to Miles' admittedly stellar W/L record, I contend that every team should strive to be the best on BOTH SIDES of the football....
