    Completely missed the point, which is perspective. That game could have just as easily cost them a NCG shot had it not been for Oregon and KState both crapping the bed. And Okie State last year. NC's are often just as much about luck than skill. Where would LSU have been had Mathieu not turned out to be a dumbass and we had a healthy O-line? Yet Les gets stuck with the derp Mad Hatter rep while the other gets deified. One gets a pass for a dumb, crucial game-time decision with a NCG appearance on the line, while another gets heavily scrutinized for a 10-win season.

    Les could've COMPLETELY changed that perception with a win in January. I know that schedule was daunting. That was a great team etc, etc, etc...It was the absolute EPIC FAILURE of a face-plant coaching job he did for the most important game probably in our entire football history. Hard to expain what happened in the dome.

    The epic failure was on Nov. 5th. when LSU won the game. Thats how much better bama was last year. Great setup in Jan.

    You usually have solid takes bro, but gotta disagree with you on this one. Coaching, or lack there of, is what costs us in Jan. Bama was not better then we were last year.

    Ok fine, but the question was 'Did LSU over or under achieve this year'. You expanded the discussion when it was unnecessary.

    That's what the entire LSU team thought too !!!

    LSU was cocky and overconfident going into the BCSNC game.

    Not at all. The problem is that we had a ton of blown plays that could have been scores on Nov 5th. That led Les to think, hey I don't need to change the game plan, we'll make the plays this time around. Saban got out of the way and let his offensive coordinator go at our defense. We rely on a Honey Badger, the one thing he's extremely weak against is that he's short, so throw over the top, and they did it. They picked apart our defense. Les had no answer for it, and our offense had no help. They outLSU'ed LSU. Wear down the opponent and keep their offense off the field.

    Don't buy this Bama was so much better bullshit. Les shit the bed because he didn't expect adjustments from Bama. Bama mopped us up because we thought we were better than them, and they adjusted to every one of our weaknesses.
