Defense was holding on for a while but offense never got in the game. After a while defense sorta gave up. What in the world was going on with Trevor?

Trevor got his head bashed in two weeks ago. Don't you remember? Not to mention all the other punishment.

It was the LSU tiger D that kept being brought up in regards to the Ole Miss game while ignoring how it was playing the last 4 games. Trevor was held to about the same completion percentage as the last 4 qb's LSU's defense played against.

Defense was the least of the problems.

The defense sucked and it was a given coming in we had issues. You just didnt know.

Not scoring earlier in the game cost us when we had our chances. You can’t put this all on the defense. Especially early on with the stops.

Absolutely. If you come away with some points early in the game, it changes the entire outlook. Shouldn't have been 7-7 after 1 quarter

On the offense equally for sure.

Agree with this too. Defense had its issues but some more points and time on the field by our offense would’ve gone a long way.

this was supposed to be the year our offense carried the team. once again it was the D. I think Jeff Scott leaving hurt...its the worst 2 games our receivers have had in years. They were totally off.

Was it?***

If the offense could have stayed on the field in the second half we could have held them under 40 and they had plenty of opportunities. Getting inside LSU territory twice to start the game and coming away with zero points came back to bite us. BV had a great plan and slowed Burrow plenty, just couldn't put up the points to keep up.

Defense was weak as the O. We dont have a defensive line. Its a joke.

Venables did a remarkable job this year with so much inexperience up front. Better than I would have dreamed. Now he reloads with 5 stars

Venables did an amazing job. He didnt have the pieces. He can only do so much. We had no DL.

Re: Oh, but we will next year

Yeah. Last years Dline could've gotten pressure on Joe without blitzing much. But this year we had to blitz due to not having a Dline that was above average. Joe tore us apart. But the good news is we will be better next year and as far as I know there are no.more Joe Burrows out there.

Totally agree on this. Coach Venables did a lot with development and even more with scheme this season to mask some legit deficiencies we have on defense.

That is what was harped upon leading up to the game but no one took it seriously. If CLemson had the dline from last year, it would have been a different story. In LSU's closest game of the season against Auburn, Auburn had 3 draft picks on their Dline. You have to have that Dline to win championships and Clemson had that last year against Bama but not so much this year.

Trevor has an off night.

We need a speedy Quick slot guy. Amari is out of position there which is surprising.

Doesn't matter who we have in the slot if Trevor throws it over their head.

Trevor was not sharp . .for sure.

Re: Defense did plenty tonight.

You are correct. BV had us in the right defense but sooner or later players have to make plays. Our D backs were in pretty good position but did not make plays and their receivers did. Tackling was not very good, but their skill players are hard to bring down. They were just a better team and you are not going to beat them with your "D" game.

Let's put it this way. The LSU football team soundly defeated the Clemson football team tonight. Their players played better, their coaches coached better, and there were no lucky breaks for us either.

What? The defense did it's job all year. I would include tonight, too. They were left out to dry by the offense in this game.

Defense did its job vs weak teams. We were exposed tonight, because we had no DL. They played with heart behind the DL, but they had their hands too full. They were boxing with one hand tied behind their back.

Are you drunk? The defense did its job for over half the game. LSU is the best college offense of all time. Get it?

Are you an idiot and dont understand football. Yhe D sucked. We were overmatched. We have no DL.and were exposed. We didnt have the talent on the Dline.

Did you watch the game? We left 10-14 points off the board in the first half and Lawrence couldn’t hit the broad side of the barn with his passes.

We knew LSU could and would score. #8 got scorched for virtually three TD’s against Chase before we put Kendrick on him. But TL overthrew 13 passes and bounced about 3 others to our receivers. He plays as normal and it’s a tight game.

The LSU defense wasn’t close to OSU’s defense. Elliot should have run ETN much more. Especially when it was 28-25. Just a bad night.

Yep. Clemson will be back in contention next year and LSU will be 8 - 4 playing for a Capital One bowl championship.

defense was fine, all things considered.


Posted: Jan 14, 2020, 12:35 AM
 

This is on Elliott and company.

2021 orange level memberbadge-donor-15yr.jpgringofhonor-obed.jpg link


I agree about Elliot, you have to put #16 in the mix


Posted: Jan 14, 2020, 12:42 AM
 

as well. Will Proctor could’ve provided a better performance than what we saw tonight.

Yes, we didn't have the talent on D but our stars on offense (except ETN) were way below par.

Pin it on Trevor and the receivers.

Defense did not lose this game

To beat LSU we needed to slow them down and outscore them. Defense made plenty of stops but our offense did NOTHING. I think we only converted one or two third downs.

lol. You really think we would beat LSU with 25 points?

Get outta here. If you want to blame a line, look at our turnstile OL.

He is talking not having a Dline.

2021 white level member link

Understood, and I’m saying our D-line performed well

Enough to win the game.

Calm down. I agree with the OP, but there other positions that could have been better as well. Bottom line: LSU was the best team.

When you're having to blitz to get pressure you put more pressure on the secondary. That will be fixed next year with a better and more seasoned DL
