    Tiger Bait 2011

    LSU Blasts #24 Cincinnati​


    Bearcats No Match for Bengals


    Baton Rouge- The #10 ranked LSU Tigers started the 2011 season with a bang by routing a top 25 opponent in the Game of the Week. Both sides of the ball played exceptional football all day long in a 41-14 drumming.

    Coach Bulgy made a surprise decision this week announcing that Russell Shepard was going to be the starting quarterback this season for the Tigers. And after the LSU defense forced a 3 and out by the Bearcats he led the offense onto the field. The game plan was obviously to try and ease Shepard into the new role, but he played an outstanding game, and except for a fumble played better than expected. He passed for 150 yards and 2 TD on 13-14 passing. Shepard did just enough through the air to keep the ball moving on the ground.

    The LSU running backs turned in a 250 yard day on the ground led by Mike Newman who carried 16 times for 116 yards. Returning starter Mike Ford carried 19 times for 88 yards and 2 TD. The Tigers spread the ball out on the ground with 5 players receiving at least 3 carries.

    The defense played stifling football all day long. The starters came off the field at the beginning of the 3rd quarter and up to that point had allowed zero points and only 110 yards of total offense to the Bearcats quick strike offense. Coach Bulgy emptied his bench however and the wheels seemed to fall off immediately.

    A beautiful punt by Jared Taylor pinned the Bearcats at their own 6 yard line, and on the first play from scrimmage the CINCI QB heaved a pass 60 yards in the air to a streaking Vidal Hazleton for a 94 yard TD. The Bearcats lined up for the onside kick, and recovered the ball after it bounced off the chest of an LSU player.

    They immediately scored again to make the score 34-14. And recovered another onside kick to begin a 3rd straight drive. Unfortunately for the Bearcats their QB tossed an interception to Kevin Hatcher who returned the ball 46 yards for a TD to cap the scoring on the day.

    The Tigers offense rolled up a 400 yard day on offense keyed by the 250 yards they gained on the ground. The defense gave up 269 yards to the Bearcats, but the starters only gave up 110 yards through the
    3 quarters.

    60 yards in the air... that is pretty impressive. Cinci's QB must have one hell of an arm.

    94 yards still isn't bad. In another league I gave up a 98 yard pass play with no time remaining and at the time I was up by 4. Needless to say I didn't win and I'm amazed I didn't break my controller.

    LSU Gets Win Over #17 Florida


    Early Turnovers Hurt Tigers


    Baton Rouge, LA- The LSU Tigers had to fight a Florida Gators team trying to save it’s chances at an SEC Championship to sneak out a 51-37 win.

    JR. QB Russell Shepard needed a career day to keep the Gator’s at bay, and he turned it in. Shepard finished the game with 332 yards 5 TD’s and no interceptions on 25 of 38 passing. The Tiger’s fell behind early thanks to 3 fumbles, all on special teams, 2 of which were returned for TD’s by the Gators. As a result the running game never got on track, and the Tigers finished with a season low 121 yards on 32 carries.

    The Tiger’s needed a signature win over a tough opponent this week, as they had all their remaining targets in for visits. The Tiger sideline was packed with top tier recruits, and Coach Bulgy hopes that some of them will commit this week.

    LSU Demolishes Kentucky


    Tigers beat Cats by 28


    Baton Rouge, LA- The LSU Tigers destroyed the Kentucky Wildcats in a solid all around performance. The offense had nearly as many yards rushing as the Cats had total, and even were able to get every freshman on the roster onto the field by the end of the game.

    The Tigers running backs carried 55 times for 246 yards on the day. The Tigers were up 14-0 after one, and 31-3 at halftime. The offense didn’t even attempt a pass in the second half, and the Tigers were able to cruise to victory. Marcus Newman had 17 carries for 108 yards and Mike Ford had 16 for 102, and both players averages over 6 yards a carry.

    The defense was dominant in the first half, forcing 6 turnovers by Kentucky, including 3 fumbles and 3 interceptions. Patrick Peterson had 2 interceptions in the 1st quarter. Craig Loston had a very good all around game with 8 tackles 1 sack and 1 TFL.

    The Tigers will match up with the other Tigers next week taking on Auburn. Then they get a break before a brutal 3 game stretch that includes games at Tennessee, at Alabama, and at home versus Ole Miss.

    LSU Downs Auburn


    Tigers Stumble Home to The Plains


    Baton Rouge, LA- The LSU Tigers were far from dominant but were still good
    enough to blow out Auburn. The defense had an average day, and so did the offense, but the Bayou Bengals came away with a 45-28 win.
    LSU gave up 338 yards to the Auburn attack, but held Auburn to negative 21 yards running on 21 carries. LSU handed it off 46 times for 181 yards and 2 TD. The first scoring drive for LSU was a 16 play 3:47 monster that covered 75 yards of field.

    Mike Ford carried 23 timed for 95 yards and Marcus Newman carried 8 times for 46 yards. Russell Shepard threw for 308 yards 4 TD’s and 3 int on 21-36 passing. And Rueben Randle caught 5 balls for 72 yards and a TD. RE Sam Montgomery led the defense with 9 tackles including 2 sacks. The defense failed to produce a turnover.

    LSU is off next week before playing at Tennessee and at Alabama in consecutive weeks.
