He just went too low on Duvernay a couple times. That first 3rd down tackle he made was a huge huge play.

The defensive ignorance on this board is amazing. The defense did not have a great second half, against a really really good offense. They made some mistakes, which I would expect to be corrected. Does a shitty defense make not one, but two goal line stands against a good offense??

Delpit has never been viewed as a hard hitter.

re: Delpit, moving forward
They are kids. He did miss two very visible tackles. He hit the guy very hard. He did not wrap up. He did have a very solid open field tackle on third down on the first possession to get them off the field.

I do wish they would talk and swagger a little less and just play. Again they are kids still

re: Delpit, moving forward
Our entire defense as a group missed 10 or 15 tackles and allowed significant yards after contact.

These are things that can get fixed. If they do not we will lose a couple of games

I wonder. It has long been thought that teams that practice against the spread get a little softer on defense. Maybe. In today’s world there are a lot more spread teams. Don’t really think that is a factor.

Delpit missed a lot of practice. As did Lawrence and Chaisson. Who knows. Expecting tackling to get better

Maybe it’s just me, but it looked like he had lost weight

re: Delpit, moving forward
While his name is not Delpit, Vincent did not even try to tackle Duverney on the long pass/run up the middle. It looked like he was counting on the DL to make the play. Neither did. Reminded me of Auburn DB vs Fournette.

re: Delpit, moving forward
What’s funny is the folks that think Delpit won’t bounce back from this in epic fashion. It’s almost like they’ve never seen the previous 2 seasons. It’s pretty sad actually, but par for the course here on tRant.

He’s lost weight since last year. Looks like a corner . I wonder why he would do that.

re: Delpit, moving forward
If he makes that tackle behind the line on 2nd down on Duvernay as he could have, UT probably punts and LSU gets it back. Completely different game. Delpit did not have his best game. He could have made the play, but was not disciplined about his technique. I doubt he does that again.

re: Delpit, moving forward
He was launching at the midsection for the big hit. Doesn't work well against guys with a really strong lower body, like Duvernay.

Delpit needs to keep his feet and drive through the defender while wrapping up.

I would think the coaches are telling him the same thing.

Vince Lombardi, if you know who he was, said, "fatigue makes cowards of us all".
Some say the quote came from General George Patton. No matter, its applicable.

re: Delpit, moving forward
Duvernay (sp?) plays hard and physical. I imagine his short, thicker stature makes him difficult to bring down.

Delpit tackles Duvernay on that 2nd down and it's 3rd and forever, which I believe was on that 19 play drive to open up the 2nd half for UT. Completely different ball game if they don't score there and wear out our defense.

re: Delpit, moving forward
The issue is he reads things so fast and so well and closes at astonishing speed. He just was coming in too fast and got brushed aside. He needed to break down and drive through the tackle.

re: Delpit, moving forward
It wasn’t just that he missed a few tackles... It was HOW he missed those tackles. He got flat out run over a couple of times. Never seen that before with him. I’m not concerned, but I was shocked. He’s a great player, and I have no reason to believe that those plays were anything other than outliers. The good with him will far outweigh the bad.

Couldn't agree more. That was my biggest takeaway the whole game. In 2011 it seemed like we always had at least 4-5 guys around the ball. How no one made it over to assist on that play, and many other plays throughout the game was very unlike LSU football.
