The LSU Tigers
After the butterflies disappeared, LSU coached by JRC 3 quickly took the crowd out of the game. In the third quarter Lsu was cruising with a 28-9 lead and many of the faithful in Seattle had left when Washington covered the spread 31-16 with 30 secdonds left in the game. I think pointshaver had Washington + 16.5, he loves to bet on home dogs.
Week 2 Vanderbilt @ LSU 17-20
It felt good to be back home after the long road trip to Washington, coach Jrc 3 made a very bad decision by having a relaxed week of practice and it showed by the end of Saturday night. "Vanderbilt played their tails off and we looked like we had a care in the world" quoted from JRC 3. Coach said this week of practice is going to be hell and everyone will puking by the end of practice.
The game started off beautifully as LSU marched down the field to score on its opening drive 6 plays 73 yards capped off with 41 yard touchdown catch by Tolliver from Jefferson. Vanderbilt answered back after breaking the league rules by going for a 4th and 6 from the Lsu 44 yard line and converted a 33 yard field goal to the score to 7-3. Vanderbilt would go on to score again on a 10 yard touchdown run by Jared Hawkins. The score at the half Vanderbilt 10 LSU 7.
As the second half had started coach, controlled his nerves by drinking heavily and playing like garbage, 1st possession was a turnover, and neither team scored in the 3rd.
The fourth quarter started and Lsu tied it up with a 36 yard field goal.Vanderbilt answered right back on a 78 yard touchdown pass with 2:09 left in the contest. Coach Jrc's prayers were answered quickly when Chris Mitchell returned the kickoff 92 yards for the game tying score. Vanderbilt still wouldn't back down they marched down to the Lsu 38 yard line, when misfortune struck for them Rahim Alem had back to back sacks to push them back to the 50 yard line. Holliday returned the punt to the LSU 39 yard line with just 26 seconds left. Jefferson quickly hit Lafell with a 33 yard strike and Lsu used it's last timeout with 3 seconds left. Josh Jasper calmly walked out and buried a 45 yard field goal as time expired and Lsu sneaked out with a 20-17 win over Vanderbilt.
Vandy's coach Bobby Anderson was quoted as saying after the game "this isn't the first time I've lost a heartbreaker to a much better team"
Coach Jrc has Florida circled on board in week 6 and said if we play like this, Ksherm will dismantle this team.
Week 6 is circled in Gainesville too!!! Tebow's looking forward to telling the student section to "call me now" again.
No fan of either team ksherm....but I do remember the f you tebow chant pretty much the entire game.....not a very classy crowd.
Week 11 vs. Louisiana Tech (W 69 - 0)
Nothing to say about this one. Total domination. They almost made a field goal and I returned my first ever punt for a TD.
Offensive P.O.W. - RB Charles Scott - 21 rushes, 137 yds, 3 TD's
Defensive P.O.W. - FS Danny McCray - 1 tackle, 1 INT., 1 Fumble Recovery
Week 12 vs. Ole Miss (W 41 - 17)
LSU knew they had to take care of the ball and manage the clock to be competitive in this week's game.
They did exactly that, running for 322 yds and even giving the ball to WR Chris Johnson 3 times for 2 scores, including a 71 yds scamper on an otion to the left. Charles Scott had the bulk of the carries though.
The receivers did their part by catching some key balls to extend the drive on 3rd down.
The Tiger D made Snead, normally an outstanding playmaker, look foolish. While he threw only 2 picks, Ole Miss was just 4-11 on 3rd down and 0-2 on 4th. Snead was also sacked 4 times and the Rebel only had 12 yards on the ground running 22 times.
Offensive P.O.W. - HB Charles Scott - 32 rushes 211 yds. 1 TD
Defensive P.O.W. - MLB Jacob Cutrera - 6 tackles, 2 TFL, 1 int.
Week 13 vs. Arkansas (W 49 - 41)
It appeared as though LSU may have been overlooking the talented Arkansas offense in the first half of this game. Arkansas scored all of their 21 points in the first half. Razorback HB Michael Smith gained 218 yds. as LSU was caught off guard with his speed and shiftiness. He was like a greased pig, making the normally sure tackling Tigers miss many times.
The Tigers must have had their tails between their legs in the locker room at halftime, because they came out a different squad. Although they continued to give up yards, they held Arkansas scoreless in the second half.
It seemed like nearly every time Razorback QB Ryan Mallet went to the air, he was picked off. Only a sophmore, he connected on 19 passes for 232 yds. and although he threw 3 ints., he also threw for 3 TD's. He will become more dangerous as he matures.
LSU came out of the gate pasing, wanting to test both their young QB and the Arkansas secondary with one cornerback out of the game. Jordan Jefferson proved very accurate again, going 13/16 and throwing for 197 yds., 3TD's, and 1 Int.
The main story once again, was LSU's tenascious rushing game. Charles Scott was the workhorse he has been all season long(114 yds and 1 TD), but the Tiger's also called on Senior RB Keiland Williams(4 rushes for 50 yds and 1 TD) and Senior Trindon Holliday(5 rushes 67 yds and 1 TD). Holliday also ran a kick back for a TD.
Offensive P.O.W. - TE RIchard Dickson - 6 rec. 125 yds and 1 TD
Defensive P.O.W. - CB Jai Eugene - 5 tackles, 2 Ints. and 1 TD
The Outback Bowl vs. Wisconsin (W 49 - 13)
It appeared that the halfbacks would be the feature early in this game. Wisconsin's HB Clay ran all over the place but fumbled in the first quarter and failed to score on 4th and goal. In the second quarter, they decided to mix it up some and did damage with the passing game.
Wisconsin's defense was at the mercy of LSU though, and HB Charles Scott was proving to be as good if not better than his counterpart. Scott and FB Ridley had already scored in the game but midway through the 2nd quarter, the Badgers must have forgotten to respect the legs of young QB Jefferson as he scampered for a 20 yd. score. 21-10 LSU
Under pressure by LSU's line, Wisconsin's QB threw a dead duck and LB Cutrera picked it of and took it to the house. On the next drive, he was picked off again. This time by CB Hawkins. At the half, the score was 35-13. Clay had 111 yds and Scott had 128 and 2 TD's both on 17 rushes.
The Wisconsin defense tightened up and forced the Tigers to punt several times in the 3rd quarter, but in the 4th quarter Scott ran well again with several long runs on his way to the record for most rushing yards in a game for LSU.
Offensive P.O.W. - HB Charles Scott - 31 carries, 252 yds. and 4 TD's
Defensive P.O.W. - MLB Jacob Cutrera - 8 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 Int. and 1 TD.
Season 2: Week 1
Season 2: Week 1 vs. Tulane (W 44-7)
LSU said they were coming out today using their new balanced playbook. They trying it out in a game situation for the first time against a lesser Tulane team.
The Tigers would choose to receive and proceed to go 3 and out on their first drive with the playbook. Tulane would score quickly, throwing on most downs. (7-0) Tulane. LSU would then drive to the 1 yard line were stopped on forth down. However, several plays later, Tulane's QB was tackled in the endzone on an option play for a safety. This provided for some much needed confidence as LSU scored on their next drive and never looked back. LSU rolls on for the victory.
Offensive P.O.W. - HB Richard Murphy - 16 att., 178 yds., 2 TD's
Defensive P.O.W. - DT Chris Davenport - 4 tackles, 2 TFL, 1 sack, 1 FF
Season 2: Week 3
Season 2: Week 3 vs. #14 Clemson (W 42-38)
- 1st Half - Clemson struck first with a run on 4th and goal from the 2 yd line by QB K. Parker and LSU's offense was stuck in a rut, punting the ball several times. But the story here was LSU's defense. They intercepted Parker 5 times, including several time inside Clemson's 20 yd line. The LSU offense, headed by Jordan Jefferson, still could not find the endzone with one of those drives ending in a botched 4th down conversion attempt on the 2 yd line. Following a TD run by Ellington and a field goal just before the end of the half, Clemson led (17-7).
- 2nd Half - After a TD pass to B. McNeal from 35 yards out, LSU was in dire straights, down 24-7. LSU must've eaten their Wheaties though, because they came charging back. Jefferson ran and passes to lead LSU to two consecutive touchdowns separated by yet another Parker pass being intercepted. At the end of the 3rd quarter, LSU still trailed by 10. LSU scored to open the 4th and finally forced Clemson to punt for the first time in the game, but the return was fumbled on a big hit, and taken the other way. LSU, undeterred, scored again and forced yet another punt. With the score (38-35) in Clemson's favor, Clemson forced LSU into a couple 4th downs, including a 4th and 19 on Clemson's side, but LSU converted, hitting a receiver deep slanting across the middle. LSU score with 51 seconds left and sealed the victory with an interception by C. Hawkins, his second of the day.
Offensive P.O.W. - QB Jordan Jefferson - 16/23 250 yds, 3 TD's, 1 int., 12 carries, 25 yds and 1 TD.
Defensive P.O.W. - ROLB Kelvin Sheppard - 14 tackles, 1 TFL, 3 int.
