As an LSU fan, obviously I am very disappointed about the outcome of tonight’s game. But you have to give credit to Alabama for a dominating performance in the BCS title game. The bottom line of tonight’s game: Bama’s defense was suffocating, and LSU never got anything going offensively. LSU only crossed midfield one time. The swagger that LSU has had all season was missing tonight.
Woulda coulda shoulda: Jordan Jefferson was in a funk. He couldn’t get the option going nor did he present a threat of passing the ball downfield. It was clear by the middle of the 3rd quarter that Jefferson was in a rut that he couldn’t get out of. I think Miles should have put in Jarrett Lee to see if he could pass the ball downfield. We might have been able to get some big plays and to open up the running game if Miles would have given Lee a try. Lee went 8-0 as a starter this year, and he deserved a shot. Miles should have given Lee a chance for the save once Jefferson choked. Miles made a mistake not making a change. That being said, it is what it is. And LSU just got outplayed tonight.
This is a tough loss for a great LSU team. Congratulations to the Tigers for their accomplishments this year. I’ll be looking for them to make a comeback next year. Geaux, Tigers!
