Well, I get that "not a huge arm" deal because Joe realizes that it is not how hard you throw the ball, but how accurately you throw it. If you watch his delivery, it is a very comfortable and easy motion, not a motion where he tries to overthrow the ball. He knows exactly what he is doing and could throw the ball harder, if needed, but he is good enough to know how to complete his passes under control of the throw.
That was a stupid thing for him to do, obviously. The NCAA is typically a bunch of jerks when it comes to things like this. If anyone got real money, they need to give it back and put this deal to bed.
Congratulations TIGERS!!! You put in the hard work, starting in the Spring, on your own with Joe and the Receivers getting into sync and carried it throughout a very challenging season, facing and BEATING all of the best opponenents in the country, and, you never faltered. You deserve all of the accolaids you will be getting. I hope Trump feeds you something better than Fast Food! GEAUX TIGERS!!!
One of the truly greatest college teams of all time. LSU was never really in danger of losing a game all year long. Coach O did an incredible job of bringing in the right players and the right staff to make this incredible team. GEAUX TIGERS!!!
I think that we will see Joe Burrow running the ball more than usual. Once he shows that he will be running more, the linebackers and safety will have to get closer up to the line and that will open up the slant routes across the field, as well opening up the long ball to the receivers and to Helaire. The one most productive play that LSU has had all year is getting the ball to Helaire in space.
He did. What you see now is a Zombie, brought back by Marie Laveau.
This has surely been a magical year for LSU and the LSU fans. Just finish it off tomorrow night and become LEGENDARY!
If there is one thing that we have learned about Coach O and LSU, it is that they don't play not to lose, they play to win, and they have a great deal of confidence in themselves, emanating from the Heisman Trophy Winner with the biggest margin ever. LSU has faced teams with the talent that Clemson has, but Clemson has not faced anything like the LSU Offense and we can be certain that Joe Brady has come up with some formations, movements and plays that LSU has not shown so far this year. There are clearly a lot of reasons that the LSU offense has been so productive, but to me, the biggest one is when the actual called play is covered and Joe and the receivers are so linked together that they both know where the receiver should go to get open and Joe just throws the ball right to them, like pitch and catch. He has such a comfortable and smooth release and never overthrows the ball from excitement.
There were some issues and breakdowns through the season, but the entire defense started to click toward the end of the season, and that is the best time to do that. Divinity coming back will help across the board.
No defense has been able to stop LSU all year, and they never had an "off game". LSU will score on Clemson. The problem for Clemson is that the LSU Defense has finally shown up at the end of the season, and, the most dynamic player, Divinity, will be back for this game.
Burrow and his receivers have instincts that come into play. The receivers know where to go and Joe knows where they are going because they had their own practices all offseason.
"LSU can win"? LSU is a 5.5-point favorite and is 23/25 to cover the spread. Anything can happen in a football game, but, if both teams play up to standard, barring some turnovers or bad calls, LSU wins this game going away. You are right about the LSU defense, which has surely come to play at the end of the season, and now, the most dynamic player, Divinity, will be back.
College football moving back to 11 game seasons? Kirk Herbstreit says that’s an idea being discussed in order to expand CFB Playoff
I don't think that that is a very good plan. Look at all of the teams that are going to lose all that revenue for one less game. It is not only the teams that would lose, think of the cities and merchants in the towns that will lose revenue from a game. A football game in a town brings in tax revenue for the city and for all of the retailers as well as the people who earn money from working at a game. If they want to elimninate a game, eliminate the Conference Championship Games and that would still have an effect on the cities where those games would not be held, but that is far less than losing games all across the board. Personally, I don't think that they need to go to an 8 game playoff.
"Not only did Jones’ walk-off play help the Falcons end the year on a positive note, but it gave Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston a piece of NFL history." Do the Falcons have a different season than everyone else?
Everyone knows about the LSU Offense, but they have shown in the last few games that the LSU Defense has shown up in a big way. That is going to be a big part of this game.
Well, everyone knows a lot about Joe Burrow and the LSU Offense. Thay have not had an "off game" all year, and other than in a couple of early games, they never even had an "off quarter". The bad news for Clemson is that the Defense, which was not very good through much of the season has come to life in the last few games, especially against Oklahoma.
The best he could say is that LSU is a "good team". He couldn't go as far as a "very good team", which is much more accurate. I am not surprised that LSU's offense could score points on them. I am a bit surprised that they were able to do it so easily. The LSU Defense really stepped up and pretty much shut down their offense. GEAUX TIGERS!!!
After 20 years of NFL Draft evaluation, Todd McShay explains how Joe Burrow has done something the ESPN analyst has never seen
Yes, Joe Burrow is the "Trigger Man", but the planets aligned for him and LSU this year. He has all of the pieces of the puzzle that he was missing last year. This has to be one of the most effective and productive college offenses ever. I mean, he is right at 80% passing completions in the toughest division in football and against a number or highly ranked teams, not a bunch of cupcakes.
The thing about this LSU TEAM, is that is a TEAM, from top to bottom. The complete organization is all about The TEAM, rather than themselves. That goes from the coaches all the way down to every player. This is a very special LSU and College TEAM.
Georgia ran into a steamroller. This LSU team is an aberration. Joe Burrow is probably about as good a college QB as we have ever seen. He's got an OL that gives him time to find an open guy, and when there is pressure, he is able to move and keep looking or run it himself. He has some great receivers who know how to break out of their routes and get open when he is scrambling around. They have a "do it all" running back who is very effective in all areas. Now that a normal LSU Defense has showed up Georgia was put behind the eight ball early in this game and could never recover. Everything fell in place for LSU this year and they have been on an even keel for the entire season. They are justifiably confident at this point. Georgia will have to figure out how to get better, but, I would not bash this year's team too much, they ran into a very special LSU team.
That "absolutely" sounded very authentic.
Well, I think that part of the decision to take it off of the board is that Burrow has not had an "off game" for the entire season. He has been hitting on all cylinders at least 80% of the time, the same as his completion percentage. Yeah, call me a liar for .5%. Joe would really have to stumble to lose the Heisman and we don't expect that to happen.
When you are playing a team like LSU is this year, able to score at will so quickly, you want to have an opponent dependent upon their running game. The best way to win a game is to put your opponent up against a wall, and the way to do that is to build up a big lead on them. Sure, Georgia has a good team and has a good chance to win the game IF LSU stumbles. If not, Georgia meets the same fate as all of the others.
Not so sure that they are better than bama with Tua, especially, at bama.
All of these "experts" have their own biases, and boy, do they show! The fact, and the truth is that LSU is ranked where they belong. Which other team has even played as many ranked teams as LSU has played. I saw so people bragging about how their team played a "ranked team" and those teams were ranked in the TWENTIES! How about top ten teams? How about telling me which team had a more significant win than beating Bama at HOME? Sure, Ohio State looks great beating up a bunch of pansies, and, not so much if they had played four top ten teams.
What I am saying is that when LSU can hang forty six points on Bama at their Home, they can do that to ANYONE.
LSU is absolutely deserving of the number one spot. No one has a resume of wins that comes anywhere close. As big a fan of LSU as I am, I must admit that I was a bit surprised how easily LSU was ablet to move the ball on and score on Bama at their home. When is the last time that anyone hung forty six points on Bama at their home? When is the last time that ANYONE even beat them at home? Nuff said.
Looks like the old BCS system was better than what we have today.
Yeah, even the best teams in the nation make a few mistakes now and then. I think that the ALMIGHTY Saban and Bama made a few as well.
