A&M game plan offensively was clearly

To go big personnel and negate players like Ojulari and Perkins. Brilliant strategy, one that took House an entire half to counter with bigger Dline.

Similar result to Ohio St v Michigan. Second year in a row Michigan went run heavy and just blew the lighter OSU defense back.

Might be seeing a shift away from spread back to power football since defenses are going with so much base nickel/dime.

sort of strange since that was the ONLY option TAM had to win.

Shutting down the running game should have been #1 and 2 priority for this game.

Hope they don't try the same gameplan for GA

I just don’t get why we couldn’t shut down the running game in the second half. We’d made such great adjustments against Auburn, State, UF, OM…

I’m sorry but Ojulari and Gaye just aren’t very good. Cost us the Auburn game last year and now this. A far cry from Montgomery and Mingo turning offenses inside out.

re: A&M game plan offensively was clearly

Jumbo’s strat was solid. Run and control the clock, limiting LSU opportunities to score. Keep their QB in manageable situations, so he only has to make 2-3 big plays instead trying to play from behind. Limit mistakes with safe plays and counter LSU’s speed.

We could not pressure them with our offense to change. Dropped passes, no passes and a critical TO. Aggies played tight coverage, making JD over think and doubt himself on passing downs. That almost bit them in the butt in the 4th as their secondary appeared tired as indicated by the number of secondary type penalties called. We could not take advantage as either play calling was bad or JD was a head case by then.

Aggies usually fold in the 3rd quarter. That TO allowed them momentum to shake off the halftime rust and carry through.

Gaye is a mediocre player. Great size but if he wasn’t huge he’d have no buzz about him.

Ojulari is explosive but man he looks lost and uninterested a lot especially in the run game. I still don’t see how he’s a projected first rounder

Our ends got blown off the ball and the inside linebackers got lost in the wash.

Classic power football.

I don’t think House did a bad job… Roy couldn’t catch a breath because of the long drives, Gaye is just a body out there, Penn is slow, Baskerville had his worst game reading keys and tackling the football, Sage Ryan got picked on… on top of all this the only one that looked like they cared was Burns who didn’t play much at all… even though Foucha & Brooks weren’t playing well…

Completely agree with everything you mentioned here.

I don’t see the BJ hype and I’m so glad Gaye is gone after this season.

Gaye either can't or seems uninterested in playing the run. He generally sells all out on rushing the QB without a thought to the run game

re: A&M game plan offensively was clearly
I said this last year that good coaches may decide that once the LBs get down to 205-215 lb, they may get power packages in order.

With that being said,ncaa needs to get scholarships up to 90 or 91.

We didn't adjust.

Clearly we overlooked A&M. I know some don't want to admit it, but the team was flat and unprepared.

Montgomery and Mingo

One of the better combos but to be honest they weren't huge ends. They were tailor made for the Oregon game and they did a good job against Bama v1. Problem is that they were schemed out mostly during the rematch.

But yes football is very cyclical and physical football at the LOS still wins football games.

Michigan was able to win Saturday's game by throwing it over the top. Their qb read the defense and they had td passes of 69 yards, 75 yards and 45 yards midway through the 2nd qt. Michigan was not able to run effectively until the 2nd half. Their qb and receivers one that game.

Adjustments don’t matter if you are physically dominated at the point of attack like LSU was all night. Defensively Saturday wasn’t a scheme issue it was their guys were better than our guys for the day.

Exactly, A&M can’t pass the ball. All they could do is run.

On offense I wish LSU would have ran the ball 90% of the time. A&M’s rush defense was ranked 105th in the country.

The game just meant more to A&M and their fans. Majority of LSU fans don’t consider A&M a rival. Just another big SEC game like the rest.

Otherwise,
Defensively, They wanted to force Daniels to throw it which they felt confident he wouldn’t

re: A&M game plan offensively was clearly
Throughout the history of football, the game shifts back and forth, defenses adjust to offenses, vice versa. With the emphasis on speed now and lighter defenders, I can see a scenario where coaches counter with Jumbo packages and a resurgence in the run game.
