I just wanted to post something positive.
Mett and the receivers have struggled all year and they really came through in a big game against the top defense in the country.
Congrats on a great game and I'm excited about the future with these guys!
Agree. After the game I talked with Mett, Landry and Dworaczyk, and even in the loss, each of them said the offense gained a lot of confidence from executing in the pass game against a team like Bama. That's the kind of outing he needed to get over the hump.
Landry and Beckham finally looked like the WRs we know they are. As Mett put it after the game, the WRs finally put together crisp routes and great hands.
"I guess you've just gotta find something you love to do and then... do it for the rest of your life." - Max Fisher
Man, I sure hope they keep the momentum going. The offense could be fun to watch.
By the way, after getting ripped from every single expert (not saying it wasn't deserved), Mett got quite a bit of love from the ESPN guys and also Danielson. That's got to help his confidence, too.
It also had to look good to any really tall WR recruits from Texas. (fingers crossed!
Everyone is SHOCKED by what LSU's offense did against Bama's defense. I would even go as far as to say the players themselves were probably surprised. Having said that, you cannot criticize fans who say, "Where the heck has that been? How the heck do you do that against Bama but can't do it against much weaker teams?" It's a perplexing issue.
Let me say this, there are a lot of FBS head football coaches who would LOVE to know how Les Miles gets his team to perform in the biggest of games - Bob Stoops being at the front of the pack.
When I look back at the 2011 season it makes perfect sense that LSU won all of those big games. LSU LIVES FOR THE BIG GAME. It's just that simple. If LSU isn't playing in a big game, if they are not underdogs, then I don't believe they are particularly interested.
I think LSU should schedule the toughest teams in the nation every year. Outside of the SEC schedule, LSU should go after the biggest and baddest teams in the country. LSU would probably go undefeated if they did this - seriously.
I agree with you on this. Glad we're opening with TCU next year. I think it sets the tone for the year.
Getting behind by two possessions was the perfect scenario and basically forced the coaches to have to call what they called. I have seen Mett slowly improve from game to game and said as much last week. It was clear at least to me that he was ready to break out.
Yep I am happy for the kids on the offense. They need an open offense to really thrive and by falling behind Bama was just what the doctor ordered.
Now let's build on it and put teams away!
Lets see young team.Getting the o/l right....more expierience for all....working really hard at coaching up....I could go on and on but you cant hear...you just wanna spout off
How bout great job coaching Kraig
How bout nice game plan Stud
How bout thanks for working really hard to improve this team Les....no I didnt think so

exactly, we saw it against a&m he just missed on 3-4 big plays. but he was feeling the rush better, and he was make the right reads.. it was just timing and accuracy which can always improve like it did last night.. he wasnt going to throw a pick.. if we go 3 wide and throw on that last drive i feel like we win the game.. tough to swallow but im proud of our team and coaches, i dont blame Les at all.. i dont agree with some of the calls but its his right.. hes probably the only coach in the sec that can make saban sweat like he does.. hes probably the only coach that can line up yr after yr and play with saban coached teams in the sec..

I think you could see the light beginning to come on in the USCe and the A&M game.
There is no question that he's being coached up. People need to realize how hard that position is against SEC defenses and coaches.
I think the coaches will trust him more and start game planning accordingly. I believe we will enjoy the remainder of this year and the offense will be in great shape for next year!
He can hear
If you're looking for a positiger to debate you point-by-point, then don't hold your breath.
I'm convinced that there is a contingent on this board that is scarred by what LSU football used to be before Nick Saban arrived in Baton Rouge
Here is your quote dont feign innocence now.Say hello to the Positiger thats right here ready to go

Agree great game by Mett and Landry. Spectacular catch by OBJ. I will give Krags/Studd kudos for getting the backs and the TE involved. I question why put Mett in rollouts, cuz he cant throw on the run (completed 1 on run I believe). He is a pocket guy.....he did great from the pocket.
Help me out here. I was just trying to start a positive thread. I have no agenda, it's just a personal choice for me and it makes me feel better to look at the bright side.
Who knows, maybe the players and families read this site and this thread would make them feel better, too.
Its a good thread no worries dude
I think we should give Stud some love too, not because of the game plan (I liked it - thought the execution was 100% better), but because of the way the OLine has come together. The right side is clicking with two freshmen! Think about the left side with Faulk back and Collins one year more experienced. The "new" blood with be Porter at center and he has gotten some playing time. The OLine is looking good and the recruiting there is strong. Stud deserves the credit for the way this group has improved.
As for Mett, I saw a different QB in the second half. He took over. I mean come on, he even completed a few bullets on roll outs near the end. Did he have his "McCarron in the BCS title game" moment? Is this where the light comes on and it is all up hill from now? Man I hope so. If it is, we are talking 11-2 this year (top 5 finish) and a real contender for it all next year.
The receivers - looked like the real deal. Made tough catches look easy (after the 1st quarter)
TRUST is HUGE! I don't know if it was the 14-3 deficit or the big game, but the coaches put their trust in Mett and he delivered. Also, for the first time I saw Mett put his trust in the the WRs. He threw some balls that said "I trust you to be the one to come down with this" and THEY DID! Did you see that RSJ? Jump on board. Oh and TEs, did you see how we realized what a great outlet that can be. Move the chains. Imagine what we can do when we get some with speed down the seam.
I'm pumped about this passing game, but want to have my excitement certified by a repeat performance agains Miss St. Pass like that again and we are talking a blow out.

I agree Stud has done a great job with the o-line. Lost 2 all conference players and look how this new line dominated the LOS last night! Awesome!
They spread the ball around to everyone. How about that touchdown to Clement that was called back?
With a couple more pieces to the puzzle, I can see this as a very potent offense. I hope they blow the doors off of MSU next week!
