GEAUX TIGERS. Another 10-win season is in reach!
Geaux Tigers, do this by finishing strong.
LSU struggles mightily before finally putting away the Piggies in the 4th.
one of the strengths of the Arkansas defense is their run D. they are the:
#19 rush D in the nation in rushing ypc allowed
#25 rush D in the nation in rushing ypg allowed
the best players are on their D are probably:
#86 DE Trey Flowers (6-4, 243) -- ranked #11 DE for 2015 Draft (#4 in SEC) by NFL Draft Scout
#42 DE Chris Smith (6-3, 251) -- #17 DE for 2014 (#7 in SEC)
#14 S Eric Bennett (6-0, 206) -- #18 SS for 2014 (#4 in SEC)
#8 CB Tevin Mitchel (6-0, 185) -- #14 CB for 2015 (#5 in SEC)
also, for a freshman starter, #5 LB Otha Peters (6-1, 228) is one to watch -- he was the Rivals #6 ILB, 4-star, #126 on the Rivals150
for a closer look at how good those two DEs have been this year:
this season, the two have combined for (11 games)
--13.5 sacks (8 by Smith, 5.5 by Flowers)
--23 QB hurries (12 by Smith, 11 by Flowers)
--23.5 TFL (12 by Flowers, 11.5 by Smith)
--86 tackles (46 by Smtih, 4O by Flowers)
compare to Mingo and Sam this season (11 games):
--11.0 sacks (7 by Sam, 4 by Mingo)
--13 QB hurries (10 by Mingo, 3 by Sam)
--17.5 TFL (12 by Sam, 5.5 by Mingo)
--63 tackesl (32 by Mingo, 31 by Sam)
and compare to Mingo and Sam last season (14 games):
--16 sacks (9 Sam, 7 Mingo)
--12 QB hurries (11 Mingo, 1 Sam)
--28.5 TFL (15 Mingo, 13.5 Sam)
--95 tackles (49 Sam, 46 Mingo)
they feature the reigning First Team All-SEC QB in Tyler Wilson, and he's currently #1 in the SEC in passing yards/game. he's ranked the #3 QB for the next draft behind Geno Smith and Matt Barkley
they feature a preseason All-SEC First Team WR in #11 Cobi Hamilton, and he's currently #1 in the SEC with 112.5 receiving yards per game. he's ranked the #6 WR (#2 in SEC) for the next draft
their TE #80 Gragg is doubtful to play with a knee injury, but he's ranked the #1 TE for the next draft and he's averaging 57.8 receiving yards per game this season. he was a preseason 2nd Team All-SEC TE this season behind the TE from Auburn
their RB #33 Dennis Johnson was preseason First Team All-SEC as the all-purpose player, and he's averaging 102.5 all purpose yards per game this season. he's ranked the #9 RB (#2 in SEC) for the next draft)
everybody on their OL is over 300 pounds, and the two stars are:
--G #67 Alvin Bailey -- ranked the #2 OG for 2014 Draft class, was 2nd Team All-SEC last year
--C #64 Travis Swanson -- ranked the #2 C for 2014 Draft class
on special teams, they have:
kickler Zach Hocker -- ranked the #1 kicker for the 2014 draft
punter Dylan Breeding -- ranked the #1 punter in SEC for the next draft (he was 2nd Team All-SEC last year)
I'd rather and am expecting total domination by LSU from opening kickoff to final whistle.
That would be a beautiful thing to see.
I'm a little afraid of our pass defense... but I'm thinking/hoping/praying that we see some improvement there. And I'm looking forward to watching Mett continue to grow into a the QB we all thought he could be.
