    We are going to be crippled with the loss of Juniors and Seniors this year. If we couldn't beat them this year when would we?
    I think with the uncertainty at the HC position, we could be in for a bumpy ride.
    So disheartening.

    That's a whole year away. Let 2-morrow worry about itself. We have a huge task in front of us next week at Ark.

    Etling is indeed junk.

    The OLine wasn't worth a shit tonight, and not surprisingly and Grimes has done a miserable job these past 3 seasons. Every time this unit faces a great defense, they shrivel up and die.

    For Fournette to get embarrassed on the national stage for 3 straight years is incomprehensible, yet Grimes managed to get it done.

    But the passes that Etling should have easily made and would have completely changed the ton of the game, he simply could not make. The game was simply too big for his ability.

    It was too big for Ensminger as well. Jury still out on Eaux; post game presser was a breath of fresh air relative to Miles. What's more important is how we finish the season.

    Yes, I've been telling my buddies this all week. I hope this game is not too big for Etling. He was a back-up at Purdue for goodness sakes. Harris was so bad when we actually had someone who could complete a pass against Missouri we were excited. The truth is we are still pathetic at QB. Another year wasted with so much talent but unspeakably we cannot find a QB.

    Agreed.

    I forgot to mention yet another coach that has LSU at such a disadvantage against a team like Bama.

    Kiffin vs Ensminger. Yikes.

    Kiffy ain't that great, but yet another coach you forgot to mention - BDP.

    Can't blame it on Etling. He had some good throws, Chark fucked up and went OOB, line couldn't block and did nothing to help him out. Also why not call more passes to the halfbacks and tight ends? Alabama
    has owned Fournette for his entire LSU career and it's because we have shit for O linemen with no fucking guts.
