LSU Review: Let’s Just Move On

I have posted my LSU review entitled “Let’s Just Move On” on‘s Tigers Corner. Here’s something you might find within the post:

In terms of points, it was Arkansas all over again. The 45 points that LSU scored did not represent the Auburn defense’s performance at all. Besides the two deep balls, Auburn held the LSU offense in check for most of the first half. The major problem was, you guessed it, penalties. Each of LSU’s three touchdowns in the first half came on drives that were extended by penalties. Some were stupid, some were bad luck, but either way they still happened and gave LSU new life. You can’t do that on the road when you need a miracle to win anyway.

In the second half, LSU benefited from Auburn’s first fumble of the season, and a pick-6. In four plays, they added 14 points and the game was pretty much over. The LSU offense is nothing special. They just take advantage of the easy situations that their defense gives them. When the other team can’t score, they play loose, go all out and create easy opportunities for their offense to score. Before the game was out of hand, the Auburn defense petty much stopped the LSU offense, but they can’t be expected to do it all day, especially in Tiger Stadium.

“Let’s Just Move On”

Agreed. The better disciplined and far superior team won that game on Saturday. Not saying that Auburn doesn’t match up talent-wise; we are simply short on experience. I’m ok with it. This looks to be LSU’s year and I’ll be rooting for them the rest of the way. That’s not as Auburn fan that hates Bama.. That’s as an Auburn fan who grew up in Baton Rouge watching both Tiger teams play.

Moving on, looking forward to Ole Miss this week and watching the team rebound.

Good post.

FYI at least on your website you start with “Florida” instead of LSU. Not complaining. Just thought you would want to know so you can fix it.

One more thing – Did anyone else watch the OleMiss/Bama game and not feel as threatened by Bama? They did not look as good as LSU did at all to me.
