    Not surprising to see everyone piling it on the coaches. I was frustrated also. But it doesn't take a genius to see that we need better QB play. We weren't going to win a bowl game without passing the ball every once and a while. Even Luke Johnson, who is an LSU alum pulling like hell for Jennings to succeed, wrote an entire article about how we need better QB play. That was the difference in this ball game. It was glaringly obvious

    This is true, especially in his final game. I would've liked to have seen a screen or two along with that wheel route play nobody has ever stopped.

    I'm curious to know Eli's record in +99 rushing yard games...I'm sure it's a landslide winning record.

    We were suppose to put out the information from the conference at all sport events that we were to be called Louisiana or Louisiana Ragin Cajuns. Espn will never abide by that. The SEC has some one in the broadcast booth to make sure not to use anything but Louisiana-Lafayette.

    USM's punter did a nice job catching that last snap. Had it gone over his head it would have been a thing of beauty.

    I wouldn't say never, but I do think ESPN is being spiteful after all the years of calls and emails trying to manipulate them to call us Louisiana. We have been a pain and I do think some of the ESPNers have a snarky attitude. Eventually we will gain cooperation. Getting the Sun Belt's cooperation was huge. Instinctively I think LSU has moved on from the issue. We can't hurt them with our branding but they can hurt themselves by appearing petty about it. The guy that gets under my skin is that guy Lyn Rollins. I think he is afraid that he won't get to broadcast LSU games if he gives in, and he may feel like he has been harassed by us as well.

    I think victory was assured last month, but in the meantime there will be some last defiant acts. Perhaps next fall we'll get this accomplished.

    I agree that we need much better QB play. But a big part of getting better QB play will start with getting MUCH better OL play, especially when it comes to pass protection. The pass protection by the OL has been awful all year. Even a great QB (ie. Drew Brees) can't be effective without getting adequate protection and time to throw.

    Has the OL problem over the years been that we've gotten bigger and stronger, but less agile?

    I'm not a coach so I don't know what the issue is. But I do know what I see, and that is the QB rarely has time to throw. Then, when he does, it is usually not very good.

    Can't answer that question Cali, but it does seem our tackles are not athletic enough to stay with speed rushers. Last year's group seemed out of shape. I don't think that was necessarily the case this year but pass blocking was the main issue all season. I can't tell you why that was the case.

    The cold hard fact is this.

    If we had a better QB in waiting, Jennings would have never transferred here, much less walk in and start.

    That said, we need to go out and get one for next season, because one dropped unexpected pass does not make a QB with a passing threat for next year. If Ray was a passing threat, Jennings would have been long gone.

    This falls at the coaches' feet. I cannot fault ANYONE who is offered a free ride to college. It's an opportunity many never ever get.

    Yes, and then he would have had a year's experience under his belt. Even if Jennings were to get another year of eligibility I don't think we improve much, if at all, from 6 wins.

    I agree that the no. 1 problem would be the OL, but it's the coaches that put us in this position, specifically Coach Hud.

    Tbh I think they were just more talented than we were. They had better play at qb, rb, wr, line play, and their pass rush was insane. 6 sacks I believe, 4 from one guy. And Mullins beat us in the film room. Said after the game he knew he could exploit the zone coverage. We had half the yards they did and now looking back am kinda suprised we were within a touchdown

    They didn't have better RB play than the Cajuns, they just used their RB better.

    This shows how stupid Hud is. Everyone in my section was calling for Eli to get the ball. He's the best player on the team and this is the final game of the season. Use him.

    Yes, Jennings was terrible. But let's not forget how truly awful our secondary is. Play too close, they get burned deep, so they play scared. 3rd and 8, Play 15 yards off and give them the easy first down.
    We couldn't cover a pass all year.
    If Goodlett is the best we have. We are in trouble .
