    I don't think only one defender would have brought Hester down on that last carry.

    Still a lot of football left to play - Injuries have slowed us a lot.

    Geaux Tigers!

    I think your dreaming. No one touched the would be tackler. It was an easy stonewall. Watch the replay

    Yeah...someone missed a block. Scott isn't no little dude. He just got smoked off a missed assignment.

    I think you're wrong. Hester was dropped by one guy on more than one occasion tonight. I believe he was a little nicked.

    You can't be serious. Perhaps you didn't see just about every second down of overtime, when our dynamic and speedy offense was relegated to "Hester up the middle for one yard."

    Hester was not a 100% all day after the thigh bruise. He was not the same Hester.

    It's possible that the tackler might not have brought down Hester, because Hester runs so low to the ground and leans forward so much.

    Scott is a straight up runner and will never get underneath a hit. Scott won't be able to gets extra yards after the first hit like Hester does just because of the way the hit the first tackler.

    Yes he would have. He was injured.

    I dont know why we ran it 3 or 4 straight times in OT anyways. That reminds of Jimbo. I believe Miles was the one that chose the plays in OT.

    i don't agree with the playcalling in the last over time. the 1st and 2nd down play were almost identical and we were too far away from the stick on 4th to pick up the 1st with a run. i thought almost for sure they'd roll the pocket on a passs play and give flynn a pass run option but what do i know?

    I know, it was way too predictable. If all we can do in crunch time is run up the gut then we are in trouble.

    You beat me to it.. I was the only LSU fan last week that was calling Crowton or Miles a moron for those 4th down runs... bad playcalling killed LSU last night... that and an exposed defensive gameplan (i'll get into that later..)
