Team Stat Comparison Tennessee LSU 1st Downs 12 20 3rd down efficiency 7-15 7-16 4th down efficiency 0-2 1-1 Total Yards 217 434 Passing 121 215 Comp-Att 12-23 19-33 Rushing 96 219 Rushing Attempts 37 36 Yards per rush 2.6 6.1 Penalties 3-10 9-54 Possession 30:07 29:53 Some thoughts: 1. If anyone saw these stats without seeing the game they would think that LSU won in a blow out and finally got their offense going. 2. When the turnover ratio is negative 4, any team can beat the other team. On top of that throw in when the turnovers occured, and it makes them even more meaningful. 3. On top of the 4 turnovers, we missed a field goal, and other scoring attempts because of fouls which the players committed. 4. We are 5-0, and there are some really good teams out there with 2 losses. 5. The glaring coaching error to me was not sending in a 2nd play when JJ ran it to the 1. 6. Until he proves otherwise, Lee needs to be the QB most of the time. Some questions: 1. I know the final fault for everything lies at the HC position. But I would like to know is CLM protecting GC? 2. Who sent in JJ without a second play? 3. Who decided to run in a substitution package instead of calling a spike? Final thoughts: I believe there is no point firing anyone right now. I believe Les will have to fire GC at the end of the season, and turn over clock management to the new OC. And while there are some coaching errors, the coaches are getting blamed for some serious player errors. I love LSU! and I am happy for the players and the coaches that we won! 5-0 is nice. OK... blast away.... but.............GEAUX TIGERS!
