LSU is a paper tiger
It feels like the 1985 Sugar Bowl again. A lightly regarded Tennessee team that took the potent Miami Hurricanes to the woodshed. Take a look at some facts here. I think there is more smoke and mirrors with LSU than any team we have faced or will face.
For the 4th year in a row LSU has failed to sign a decent running back. This is not, not, not good for LSU. As we saw this last year opposing teams defenses are adapting to LSU’s quirky offense and their 3rd and long defense. Their corners play soft and so far away from the line of scrimmage that they are not visible on my 57 inch Hitachi HD TV. Consider the talent they had more than a few experts have said they disappointed for sure.
LSU QB Jarrett Lee. He’s good no question but he can’t continue to carry the load like he has. He has lit up some good defenses this year and but he is one good pop and a bad poop away from being sidelined all year. With no quality running backs LSU has had to throw the ball way more than they planned. Think about it. I’m not hoping for injuries, that is classless, I’m just saying they are asking for it. LSU has no quarterback set up to replace Lee if he is injured. Think about that. Jordan Jefferson just plain sucks in the red zone. He is not isn’t a viable option for LSU. Well, only if they need to stomp someone’s ass stomped in the parking lot of a bar, he is more than effective.
The heart and soul of LSU’s team and leadership graduated or left early or are so supremely confident that they don’t give a rats ass. Their best defensive linemen left who were all 4 year starters.
Their defense was totally offensed and defused by a very so-so 2010 Tennessee team that had them beat only to win on a mental breakdown created by the Tennessee coaching staff on the last play of the game.
Florida and West Virginia made them look silly with their decent line of scrimmage. Tennessee’s will be much better this saturday.
LSU Tigers are paper tigers. They will be lucky to finish in the survive healthy in Knoxville this year. Mark my words!
Les Miles has fooled the league for a few years and then we all figured him out. Tennessee wins, but it will be close. Matt Simms has their number. He is gamer and possesses the will to win through grit and moxie.
Just wait and see, the Road to Damascus ain’t crowded non-believers. Vols win 24-20 after Palardy kicks a game winner from 49 sending us to glory.
