    In 1996, the Tide came into B'Rouge and beat us 26-0. The next year we went to AL and beat them 27-0. Will our team be fired enough and have a long enough memory to keep this game in mind when we play them next year? Bama has several seniors and 5th yr seniors on the D and O, we have to give them a shellacking next year. At 24-0, Franchione opts for a pass play to run up the score, cant forget that.

    PS: Just a long term thought, I know the more pressing need is for us to beat Ole Miss and ARK.

    Coach Fran didn't call the play. It was an audible. LSU blitzed so Watts went to a pass. The players on the field were doing just what they have been taught.

    I have thought about the back and forth beatings our teams have given each other at home. As for Alabama losing several seniors, not exactly so. we lose 3 on defense, Dixon (cb), Bacon (s) and Johnson (dt). On offense we lose 7, Collins (wr), Watts(qb), Bolden (rb), Galloway (tb), Ephriam (c), Ellington (ot) and Portis (og). But Croyle should fill in nicely for Watts, Galloway and Bolden will be replaced by other backs in rotation, Collins will be missed as will our 3 OL. We also lose Lane Bearden our punter.
