One play call in particular still bothers me from last year ....
I believe it was the 4th OT and TAM was up 3. The coaching staff decided not to put the ball in the air (inside the 15) and basically played for the Fg and another OT.... Very similar to decision a decision late vs ND in bowl game prior . I Personally believe this is where both games were lost.

I'm curious / hoping the "new" offense will encourage them to go for the kill going forward

I personally believe we won that game 3 different times. I think your beef is misguided.

The game was lost on the final A&M drive in regulation. Defense failed to stop A&M on a 4th & 18 and then allowed a 19-yard touchdown at the gun.

Anybody who says LSU won the game multiple times and blames officials for screwing LSU is wrong and is not a man. All the pivotal calls were correct, and if you can’t handle that, you aren’t fit for viewing or playing sports.

I wish we would have gone for it 4th and 1 at Florida to go up 14-7. Same problem of being too conservative. Of course the next week they went 4-4 on fourth down against Georgia

Lol. The knee down was the correct call but the officials bungling of the call was essentially a timeout for the Faggies.

The tight end clearly caught the ball and turned up field and FUMBLED.

There was no pass interference on Greedy.

You are clearly confused. The only thing you are correct about is that we should have wonn in regulation.

I feel like it was already decided for us to not leave college station with a victory. We will bounce back tho, we built ford tuff.

Half-back pass would have been perfect call in that situation for easy TD and win. Anyway, that's over. Tigers have a lot more experience on offense returning overall so we should see higher scoring per game and more wide-open play calling especially w the additional of extra quality offensive coaching...…. Geaux Tigers!

Agreed. Those series of play calls were abysmal. We played for another OT, THEN called the HB pass during the next OT series? What was the point of that. We played to tie and not to win.

I try to let these type things go, but Les Miles did the same thing against Bama in TS when all we needed was a first down to win the game and we ran it 3 times up the middle deep in Bama territory, settled for a Field Goal and they came all the way back down the field since we left enough time on the clock.

A killer instinct, or getting way ahead early is a lot less stressful for us fans. Hope we see some of those high scoring games for the Tigers this year.

Ok, so, we just turn eyes away and say it doesn't matter when officials don't get calls right? When someone doesn't do their job you call them out. I worked over 20 years in chemical plants from New Orleans to Baton Rouge to Mississippi and Alabama. If anyone I worked with had done their jobs as poorly as referees in todays sports, people wouldn't just lose their job, they'd be DEAD! And I've been on jobs where people were killed because some dumbass not doing their job right. And it's not just LSU, it's Saints, it's KC in last years AFC championship game, it's every where and it's pathetic!

g and is not a man

LOL IDK WTF calling refs out for losing games has to do with manhood, but I do not see the relation. If anything calling these mo fo's out for not doing their job is being more of a man than being a coward and saying nothing!

No, the thing I said.

Refs neither win nor lose.

Less sports, more rom-coms for you. LSU should have closed the deal and failed. It doesn’t matter all that much, though; it was Fiesta Bowl either way.

A catch and two steps is a fumble. If u couldn’t see that you aren’t fit to drive and should have DL taken away

Hindsight, if we are micro critical i would have to agree. When i first read your post i did think of the ND game as well. But now our talent level should provide us the opportunity in these situations to do something different.

If ensminger calls that play where Edwards helaire threw the pass to tory Carter then instead of sitting on it to next overtime, we leave college station as winners

You’re a ref, aren’t you? I’m guessing a female ref at that.
