I'd have to look. You shouldnt have to play keep away to win games.
Shouldn't you? That's one of the many things I found infuriating during our 1-4 stretch after FSU.
we were going to let Fournette get his yards and try to shut down everything else. We shouldn't do it on kickoffs though....
Who knows? "this team is a riddle wrapped in a mystery..."
What was interesting is that for the first time I can recall a broadcaster proclaimed that kelly was easing a qb into the game with high percentage passes.
I've been praying for that epiphany.
It appears to be so basic that kelly isn't interested in it.
Maybe he will be now.
One can hope...
Do you have any idea why Zaire was "benched" all season?
Man, he looks solid...
Holy crap that guy is a truck.
Our 20 + yard plays yesterday
MZ run 26
CJP run 27
CB rec 29
CJP rec 21
CJP run 50 yds
we dominated TOP. We also won the game. That said, Fournette is NFL ready and too good. As Sprack said below, thank God Miles is dumber than Kelly. Running Fournette 30+ times most likely would have resulted in a different outcome.
For only getting that guy the ball 11 times.
I never want to see him again.
with and probably better than some of the best we've seen imo.
Freshman... holy sh**.
This guy is freaking scary. Hell, he's a freaking freak.
Gameplan notwithstanding, I think most people would have preferred to shave off some of ND's TOP minutes if they could have instead been swapped to 3-minute LSU drives that ended in punts.
I think Redfield is likely pretty glad that the season is over and he doesn't need to watch the game tape in team meetings. That's just one example.
too often. As a safety, he needs to throttle it down and make better (safer) bets....tough lessons, hopefully learned.
On a lighter note, we got to see his speed at a not so opportune time.
Also, he had some decent tackles while playing with a cracked rib.
You are correct it was a rough day out there for him.
playing safety can be a humbling proposition. I haven't given up on him but I was just commenting on how comically poor some of our technique/scheme is on defense.
100% correct. He HAS to learn from it.
(14 tackles yesterday 10 solo)
Fournette came into the game widely heralded and proved why.
Though, I did love watching Prosise outrun the LSU secondary on his TD run.
The guy is explosive with the ball in his hands and a little space.
If he ever figures out the hands thing....
such a poor feel for the game; he had another 10 yards and just ducked his head and speared his own blocker and fell down.
He made a motion with his hands as if to say "cut the run behind me dammit." It's bad when the blocker has a better idea of where the ball should go than the runner does.
I think that was on a kick return. We need a better Kick returner. He is zero threat to take one the distance...or even to midfield.
My memory is short--but don't recall Carlisle doing much this year except vs. Michigan(he had a great game).
As I said--Prosise needs to see any of Carlisle's touches on offense. That guy is explosive and has better instincts with the ball in his hands.
Remember watching that play during the game and thinking it was a great play call only to have Carlisle run into his blockers and the one defender in the area.
Certainly understandable. At one point, LSU had no passing yardage.
it was a run fake play action pass.
And it was also not the only play where he didn't look the best.
It looked like a trick play with how open the receiver was, but it was basically just a play action pass except the play action was just the QB faking a draw.
the the safety ought to be reading his keys (uncovered lineman, at the minimum) instead of looking into the backfield and flying upfield based on backfield motion.
What kind of madness is that hollownd?
but it looked like the QB bent down a bit behind his line after faking the run.
and the other big plays.
and this is why...you can't waste an offensive possession with Navy because you know they'll get the ball and hold on to it, rendering a high powered offense less important. If they score, it really puts pressure on your offense to either match it or get ahead.
Kelly should see how that works with superior athletes.
If he would have used the same gameplan against the lesser opponents, ND would have smashed teams.
I hope he learned something from this game.
