    Not surprised he is looking for an experienced QB after seeing a few more games. If the best guy does not graduate from either a JC or as a grad transfer, that is who he takes. I am sure he hopes someone talented can enroll in January.

    We rushed for 228 yards against Arkansas St. Loading the box doesn't mean you can't run against someone. When you load the box, there isn't any 2nd level support. If you break through the line, it is a huge gain.

    The issue comes down to that Troy's DB's were physical with our WR's and we couldn't handle it. Loaded the box (and were disciplined about it) and locked us down in 1-1 coverage = shutting down ANY offense ... see Bama vs LSU.

    Well, it does but using the ASU game as a comparison is not real valid when we threw for over 300 on them as well. Our first score was a swing pass that went the distance. They had to settle back off of us at that point. We were able to be very balanced against ASU. Troy was able to, with their DB play, jam us and really fill the box. I think we both agree that the difference was Troy's strength in pass defense that allowed them to do so all game.

    I agree, my point is that EVERY game plan against us will be the same, regardless of opponent ... take away the run and force them to beat you with the pass.

    It comes down to execution and having the talent to execute. Troy and App State have both on defense, Arkansas State and the rest of our schedule does not. Now, the ULM game will be a good test I believe. It is a road game, in-state rival, and multiple coaching ties. If everything goes to plan, it should be a game for the West Championship & a guaranteed 7 win season, with an upside of 9 wins.

    No. Bama is REALLY good. LSU DID NOT lay an egg.

    Their offensive gameplan was horrible. Coach Cookie Monster laid an egg.

    Oh, they laid an egg, the big ole goose egg - zero on the scoreboard is an egg no matter how you view it.

    I think they have a song about that - Should I stay or should I go now . . .

    Can't he still play in four games and not lose the redshirt? Not sure how many games he played in earlier this season. Chase Rogers could start playing in the USA game and not lose the redshirt even if we make the conference championship game. Not sure he is ready however.

    Kind of late on the come back, but yes I did. And when you are (SUPPOSE) to be #3 in the nation you are kind of expected to get on the board in some form or fashion......even playing against the #1

    App State and Troy were successful defensively because they had a lot more team speed than we did
