Coaching lost us this game along with really bad game planning and management.
    Otha could not cover a baby bed with a king quilt...he is HORRIBLE on pass coverage and so is lightfoot

    I agree Jennings was horrible and goodlett in defense was just as bad...you're not gonna beat a decent team when you can't throw a pass

    On the 2 minute drive. We tried to catch them with a run on 2nd down and got stopped short. We needed a first down. What's the better chance of us getting the first on 3rd and 1, a pass or run? It's obviously a run, so we ran the ball and didn't make it. Again, what's the better chance of making the first down with this team, pass or run? Again, it's obviously a run. We needed the first down. The situation dictated that we run the ball during those situations. It wasn't ideal but that's the situation We were facing at that time.

    Maybe you can question the run on 2nd down, but that's nit picking. We had plenty of time at that stage of the drive.

    Our offensive play calling was sometimes baffling, especially on the last drive coupled with poor clock management doomed us. The USM QB outplaying Jennings by a wide margin was a big difference in the game IMO. Still we had our chances to score more points. Too many missed opportunities. Also think USM plays a little dirty. Can't help but wonder if Dion Ray could have been a difference maker in this game with more touches. Our players played hard to the end.

    Eli, Al, Otha, and those other seniors deserved a better performance from their coaches. Great players, they've made us proud.

    He had 17 carries for 99 yards. 6 yards/carry. He should have had 25-30 touches in that game. Even the ones that call us ULL and Louisiana-Lafayette all night said as much. Eli didn't see the ball enough.

    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
