re: What a douche running trick plays up 25pts - Metaloctopus
[quote]It's 2019 payback[/quote] It's a little late for payback against an undermanned team. Not the same players. This was just cheap on their part. That's ok, though. LSU will remember that....

re: They ran a trick play on 2 pt to get to 50 - Metaloctopus
I really don't know what Georgia was trying prove with that play. I guess they want to give LSU ammunition to do to them what they did to A&M in '19. Act classless, get what you deserve...

re: 4th and inches and your in shotgun handing the ball off is the worst play you can call - Metaloctopus
They do it over, and over, and over. It doesn't work, and they still never learn. Absolutely no sense of the situation and the opponent, these guys just call plays like robots in these situations. "My sheet says I do this now". Turned the game from potentially being in doubt again, right back int...

re: Dembrock fricking sucks. - Metaloctopus
Why do coaches CONSTANTLY run a stupid shotgun handoff instead of a sneak? I shaking my head as soon as I saw the formation. Just mind numbingly bad play call....

re: This fan base lacks perspective. - Metaloctopus
[quote]Less than 11 months ago we had 39 players on this roster[/quote] Because of players quitting. But then there is this mysterious thing called "the portal", where we replaced a lot of quitters. Why do people keep bringing that up as if we still don't have enough players to field a team? [...

re: Georgia is better than LSU, but not 35-10 at halftime better - Metaloctopus
Yeah, they're definitely not [i]that[/i] much better than LSU. But in a game when you knew you couldn't make mistakes, they've made nothing but mistakes. They've moved the ball, but then stop themselves, and Georgia was gifted 7 points directly, plus another short field after a turnover. Just not an...

re: The way we treat our team - Metaloctopus
What you're witnessing is the result of two embarrassing performances in a row. If you can justify that with "well, it's the #1 team in the country", then your expectations are very low. Losing is one thing. Getting humiliated is another. That's asking a lot of people to turn the other cheek to....

re: We missed 21 tackles Saturday night. Previous high this season was 12. - Metaloctopus
[quote]Not trying to pile on you but I think you just kind of made up that out of thin air or completely misinterpreted something.[/quote] I don't make things up out of thin air. I 100% heard those words over the weekend. I have watched a lot of different videos from different commentators, and i...

re: We missed 21 tackles Saturday night. Previous high this season was 12. - Metaloctopus
[quote]Huh? This isnt what Pate said at all. In fact after talking about the game he said the worst thing that can happen for A&M now is Jimbo believing his offense works and makes no changes in the offseason and they just get more of this next season. Pate has made fun of Jimbo's offense all sea...

re: We missed 21 tackles Saturday night. Previous high this season was 12. - Metaloctopus
It's funny how some people need a film breakdown to see the obvious. I have read so many headlines or titles to threads about Jimbo Fisher's "masterful" game plan, and other hyperbolic terms, and yet it was quite apparent to me that LSU simply did not tackle. Josh Pate, in his usual sanctimonious...

re: USC has to be nearly tied with us for 5th. If we beat A&M and they beat ND… - Metaloctopus
[quote]I agree that if the committee were giving full weight to those games, LSU would lose a resume comparison. The thing is that they would also lose in that comparison to USC and Clemson, which suggests they AREN’T giving full weight to those results. Michigan has been dominant against very ba...

re: USC has to be nearly tied with us for 5th. If we beat A&M and they beat ND… - Metaloctopus
[quote]I think you may be overstating the resumes of Georgia, Ohio St and Michigan relative to LSU and those other teams. They are where they are in the rankings because they are undefeated and started the year highly ranked. Good wins aren’t really what got them there, especially Ohio St and Michig...

re: Why would anyone pull for Notre Dame after what they pulled in 1969? - Metaloctopus
It's not hard to pull for what's best for LSU. That's the whole point. I don't even know if you're being all that serious, but I know a lot of people talk about how hard it is for them to pull for a certain team. I won't pull for ANY other team unless that team can help LSU, and if it helps LSU, it'...

re: Florida State’s scheduling sleaziness could cost LSU - Metaloctopus
[quote]FSU game has had zero effect on LSU as of right now. Were #5. If we won that game and got blown out in the UT game and there were 4 undefeated P5 teams, we'd still be #5... [/quote] "Zero" effect? That's not exactly true. We are not guaranteed that TCU loses a game, neither are we ...

re: USC has to be nearly tied with us for 5th. If we beat A&M and they beat ND… - Metaloctopus
[quote]So why do they currently have LSU ahead of TWO 1-loss teams? Why would they rate a 1-loss non-champion TCU more highly than USC and Clemson. His position makes no sense. [b]Is it also his belief that Georgia and the Ohio St/Michigan loser would stay ahead of LSU?[/b][/quote] I assume so, b...

re: USC has to be nearly tied with us for 5th. If we beat A&M and they beat ND… - Metaloctopus
[quote]That's kinda the question, but right now, we're at 5 and have to play 1. That game is basically a quarterfinal for LSU. [/quote] All of this speculation is being centered around USC, but I'm more concerned with TCU losing a game (and LSU handling their own business above that), preferab...

[quote]Thanks for the correction. I know the competition is on the weak side, but still impressive. [/quote] :cheers: No problem. And yeah, there are some accomplishments that don't need a qualification to say that it's impressive. Regardless of the opponents, it's hard to score over 100 points ...
