I don't have a maturity issue with Mett or question his skills.
It's much more simple than that. Look at the hits Mett took against little ole North Texas after having Spring, Summer and Fall camp to prepare and play behind an improved line.
Now, multiple that pain times 20 and you have a good guess about what Bama would have done to Mett.
He is learning and the Staff is trying to quicken his reads and motion but he wasn't gonna beat Bama last January.
"There are some reasons for this that we cannot get into right now."
Firn, you are not one to judge good or bad objectively. Seen it for years, but I appreciate the info and the fact that you love LSU football. I've always liked you as a poster anywhere, but you do tend to shine the light on the negative. Try to remember that last year and this year may be the best two years ever in LSU football... EVER. And I don't disagree about Mett, but that is history. I think if he matches McCarron and he is more than capable, we beat those guys, but that is going to be another slobber knocker IMO. For 2 years in a row, LSU and Bama may well be on a plane all to themselves, but I give us the edge this year. It was a close call last year, but they had the better team even on 11/9 (yes, mostly given our QB situation).
Besides, Bama started the year last year ranked ahead of us. It was just their year and their destiny. This is OUR YEAR. Bank on it.
Hard fault Lee if he did check out! He stuck it out waiting for his chance and then when he leads the team to 8-0 he gets lifted for JJ. JMO
There's some truth to those comments, koony. I believe some of his teammates were asking for him to get a shot.
BTW, Lee suffered a few drops in his LSU career that could have changed an outcome.
Also, I don't believe for a minute that JL "checked out".
I'm not trying to sabotage or high jack this thread - just had a flashback on ole Koony's post.
I don't really think he did either 76. And you're right about the drops!
