It's not so bad on this board, but I'm curious to hear fro the "Jimbo's too conservative" crowd members here. Just take a look at the official play by play: http://www.lsusports.net/downloads1/11364.htm?ATCLID=609432&SPID=2164&DB_OEM_ID=5200&SPSID=27815#GAME.PLY Look at Jimbo's 1st-down playcalling - For the whole game, 15 passes, 10 runs. This includes drives begun on the LSU 23, and the LSU 8. The 15 pass attempts on first down also make up 43% of JMR's 35 pass attempts on the day. I'll pre-address the 2 most obvious criticisms. In the first 2 quarters, during which the score was tied the entire time, it was 3 runs/2 passes in the 1st quarter, 2 runs/5 passes in the 2nd. So Jimbo didn't just start throwing on 1st down once it got to crunch time, and/or once it became clear our run game was subpar. Now take out the 4th quarter to filter out the last drive - now you've got 9 passes, 8 runs. And that includes the two drives started deep in LSU territory. The percentage comes out to 25%. So is Jimbo gutless because he plays it too close to the vest, despite calling more 1st down passes than runs in a defensive slugfest, even on our own 8 yard line? And does it consistently throughout the whole game? I'll concede the 2 run plays to start the 2nd-to-last drive, but do 2 plays outweigh an entire gameplan built around 1st-down throws? Outside of that, it seems to me that there's not much, if anything, for the "Jimbo's scared" crowd to hang their hats on.
