    I think they have is if this winds up being a close game that comes down to a fourth quarterd drive.

    We haven't been in any "tester" games where the 2 minute drive was of the utmost importance. I believe 7 of our 9 wins have ended in the "Victory Formation". Old Piss seems to be in these types of games on a weekly basis - no matter how bad/good the competition.

    If it comes down to a last drive scenario, I think they'll have the advantage just because of the experience they have in these situtions.

    What about the Georgia game where Webster made the interception in the Dawgs 2 minute drive?

    Moot point ... but let's say Mauck goes out with injury early

    Close game ... Manning is a CHOKER. See Memphis & TT Box scores ... 2 INTs late in both games.

    My money is on the LSU Dee, now until the end of the season.

    Well, Georgia was TRYING to drive down for the TYING score. Not as much pressure there. Plus, other than ONE play, we had held them the entire second half.

    But, ALRIGHT, I'll give it to - 1 of 9 victories were well in hand prior to the fourth quarter.

    The thing that would scare me is if it comes down to field goal kicking. That is the one phase of the game where Ole Miss has a clear advantage on LSU. Gaudet and Jackson have been inconsistent on field goals and kickoffs.

    Of course, it should not come down to that. We are superior to Ole Miss in every phase of the game except quarterback play, and Eli and Matt Mauck are almost dead even in terms of statistical performance in that area. We have better defensive players at EVERY position than Ole Miss. Our offensive line, running backs, and wide receivers are clearly better than theirs, although I am not sure our offense would be able to move the ball very well on our defense.

    If our offense executes as well as it has since the Florida game, Ole Miss is toast. Their pass defense is ranked somewhere around La Tech's--a game in which Matt Mauck only completed NINETY PERCENT of his passes.

    Yeah, FG's make me nervous but hopefully it won't come down to that. As was mentioned, the only games this year that we actually were trying to score points in the 4th qtr were Georgia and Florida. We had the others wrapped up after 3 qtrs. It would be much easier on my psyche if we could put another team away early.

    It really shouldn't come down to field goals. Hell, no other team has had to settle for a field goal against old piss....I'm pretty sure we won't have to either.

    that reminds me, why was Jackson kicking fieldgoals last week. Was Gaudet not doing good enough and Saban just wanted a change...From what I remember Gaudet wasn't doing that bad and hadn't had too many bad kicks

    anyone know anything about this and who will be kicking this Saturday??

    I read somewhere, I can't recall where, that Saban said Jackson had been doing a much better job in practice, so he went with him. No clue about this Saturday, though.

    In Saban's press conference Monday he just said Jackson as been more consistent in practice over the past few weeks so he decided to go with him. Said he struggled early going from kicking off a tee to off the ground. Said he is now doing much better at it.
