    We have our QB for the few years that will allow the other young QBs to grow up in the system. The RP problem caused by loosing our seasoned QB has been fixed. I saw all I needed to see with JJ against a awful Defense but I saw what I have wanted to see. Our QB take the game over and be a leader.

    His fumble run was awful but it happens! He protects the ball as well as any QB we have had almost to a fault. By getting the ball down the field and the catch by RR was amazing. The run by RS was amazing! Look at the future and think what could happen this year. LSU could win out and win the SEC!

    I think we could be in the picture for the BCS game but who cares! We can't control what happens to go to the big dance but we can win the SEC!!!

    Bama is closing in on it's self but like LSU they could find themselves on O!

    We have one more tune up game against Tulane and I would rather be playing Tulane to keep working and allow JJ to keep growing.

    Bama will know they are in trouble and the same game plan from last year minus pick 6's and int is all it will take to take Bama down.

    This game was a tilt game for Les and it all tilted his way!!! :miles: The mad hatter will be in Baton Rouge for a while!! Get use to him all you CLM hatters but I must say this board did well in a dark moment standing behind the coach.

    It does feel good being #9 after that kind of performance...now if we keep this up through the conference championship and with either a Texas or USC loss and we have to be in. One game at a time.

    Except when he scampers on a busted play. There were several times when he ran with the ball in one hand once he was beyond the line of scrimmage. I'd like to see him tuck the ball on a tuck a run more. It made me a little uncomfortable to see him hold the ball in one hand while running. Even on plays near the goal line, I'd prefer to see a two-handed dive toward the pylon than a one-handed flail.
