Wandering Jersey

I should have bought into his development this year. He isn’t greatest of all time or any of that nonsense. But he progressed so well over his time in Baton Rouge, and he distinctly had the best season a college QB has ever had. He’s absolutely NFL ready. I doubted LSU, especially early, in this game, but he absolutely torched a pretty good Clemson defense that I thought would be more up to the challenge on the big stage. But like you said he made throws and quick reads that just amazed me. I thought he and Lawrence would play at a similar level in this matchup, but that was a joke. Congrats to LSU and Coach O. Burrow will be hard to replace, but this one has got to be sweet for LSU.
O’Gara: The cowbell comes from a State vs Ole Miss game where a Jersey (that’s a breed of dairy cow, which is where milk and cheese come from, not the grocery store) wandered onto the field. She had on a cowbell. State came back to win the game. We have rung bells at games since then. What else do you want? Leach to say cowbells were used by pirates?
UT fans get more stuck up the further we get away from the mid-90s. I agree with your take on Leach being more noise than substance. It will get old if he doesn’t win. And I mean win when he shouldn’t. But please leave history out of this. UT is no closer to an SEC title than State is right now. Whether UT has the right “SEC style” or not.
I’d agree. And that’s the best description of Leach I have heard.
Nothing on offense for next year is a known commodity. It doesn’t mean we won’t find success, but it’s not a good sign. Especially with a coach that thrives on slinging the ball around and a roster that lacks both good passers and receivers. Freshmen may be what the staff leans on, but in this league that will not be pretty. KT is by far our best QB, but neither him nor Schrader running the air raid is playing to their strengths. Maybe being in the negative camp is just being a realist.
Ohio State had the best defense in the country. I’m pretty sure Clemson can hang with LSU if they can hang 29 on OSU. It’s not like Clemson’s offense is garbage, and LSU’s defense is scary. Brent venables found a way to stifle an elite talent in Tua. Maybe he can’t stop Burrow, but to think this game is a blowout just because Clemson plays inferior teams compared to LSU is ridiculous. Had Alabama beaten LSU and then won the SEC championship would the Clemson strength of schedule been an issue in a matchup between them?
Agree with your point, but you can only play who you play. Just because Clemson has an easier road to a championship game shouldn’t affect their ability to win or lose in it. Would Dabo fare as well in the SEC? Probably not, but that’s irrelevant. He’s doing a heck of a job, and even if you discount him for his competition, he has still been neck and neck with Nick Saban for the best coach. Who would even be considered third? It’s Nick and Dabo then the rest.
Let UF go 10 years without an East title and say football is only about entertainment.
That means nothing over a multi year stretch. Mullen was a first year HC at state. Maybe we should have passed on him for an experienced HC.
Strategy for success. Do what OM does. No wonder we can’t win the West.
The Kingsbury experiment in the NFL is a joke.
Nick Jr not working out in Athens? Troll somewhere else.
It’s surprisingly, at least to me, well written by him for sure, and I agree with his premise a lot. Durkin likely doesn’t deserve to be denied another chance, but was his hiring really necessary? Coaching moves in Mississippi now seem to lack football sense for the sake of other things.
He’s gonna need to spend it on a good staff. I’m surprised he got that much, but it won’t matter if he can’t pay any decent assistants.
I’m not sure 2020 is the year to tune into his offense at MSU. He’ll need time, and it may not be pretty at first
There’s going to be a circus with it for sure.
Definitely not the best rivalry. It is a football game after all. Not a press conference competition.
Sadly that’s exactly what Cohen was doing. If we focus on Ole Miss all the time, it’s as far as we’ll ever get.
It’s a fit on paper. Just ask the rest of the league.
“Who knows how Leach is going to gel with Cohen. One thing is clear, though. Cohen will be more motivated to make Leach work than he was with Moorhead, who was fired after 2 years and was seemingly on the hot seat in the midst of Year 2. One can disagree with Cohen’s handling of the Moorhead situation and still believe that Leach was an impressive get.“ Cohen could’ve hired Leach before when he hired Moorhead. Bad look for our AD when he’s “more motivated” to make his second choice work than his first.
I was hoping for the opposite of a splashy entertainment hire. Maybe for someone humbler and less of a panic mode, we-need-a-successful-coach hire. Oh well. Hope he proves me wrong.
