After rewatching the game
I noticed that we left a lot of open space in the middle of the field but it seems like Clemson still wanted to stick to the sides. Almost like we were daring them to go open field and they refused to take it. Am I missing something?

Because they wanted to get in Lawrence’s face. It doesn’t matter what’s open if you are in the backfield all night and you have two corners that can play man.

Weren’t we in man? I don’t know what I’m talking about, but I assume the middle was open because no one in orange was there.

No, you got it. LSU didn’t play zone very much. Didn’t have to. They were able to get pressure on Lawrence.

You have to remember most college teams are scared of the middle of the field, except LSU this year.

Go watch it again and report back with your new hypothesis

If Lawrence had that many overthrows over the middle, LSU would’ve had 3-4 interceptions.

TLaw is scared to throw over the middle.

Did you see the Stevens hit on Rodgers?

They didn’t know what to do having their top 2 receivers taken out of the game in single coverage.

Then you just have guys roaming the middle of the field and spying TL, or an extra guy in run stop. Recipe for disaster for Clemson.

Bama wasn’t! I hate Bama, but they had open receivers a lot,
all year long with either QB!

And a lot of times they weren't even trying. They were trying to contain their Rush Lanes in case he took off. That's how great of a job they did

Did you notice if Skalski used the crown of his helmet when he made the hit that injured Burrow’s ribs? It looked like it watching the live broadcast but I haven’t seen the replay.
