I'm not sure what to make of this. LSU is basically the anti-Michigan (92nd in total offense, 8th in total defense). I remain confident that Denard can win this game with his arm. Also, the MSU D seemed to be worn down after only 50 snaps. Without checking, I would guess that Michigan averages about 70.
Mississippi State Defense vs. LSU Every Snap
The defense for Missississississippi state game out roaring the first quarter. After this quarter it seemed they had tired themselves out a little but still made a couple nice pressures here and there. LSU established somewhat of a run against them with Jefferson, I would assume Denard will be able to do the same if not much better. As long as the UM O line can hold their D line, I think we win this game.
....from watching this.
1. LSU has a stellar kicker
2. LSU's RBs hit the holes hard, with no indecision.
3. MissSt.'s secondary has holes in it. Accurate passing will gain yards.
4. MissSt.'s D tackles flows well to the ball, and tackles ok when they get there.
sounds like a little inside veer could take advantage of that
I meant to state that MissSt.'s D flows well to the ball and tackles pretty good when they get there. Wasn't much yards after contact allowed.
This was early in the season. We have a lot of young players and they walked into tiger stadium this year and crapped their pants. We had 5 turnovers and gave them the ball at mid-field almost every possession. But it was still a game in the second half. I was there. Not very fun. LSU and their lucky, grass eating coach, are not much better than us this year.
So you don't want us to judge your team based upon this game because it was early in the season, but you do want us to judge your team based upon the Auburn game?
Brain is right about the MSU D being really aggressive. They are blitzing like a mofo in that vid. I noticed very few 4 man rushes and no 3 man rushes.
Funny how Shepard (#1 Dual Threat QB in 2009, #7 overall prospect) is happy to be a WR at LSU...
