LSU was expected to win this game, and they did in decisive fashion. But not everything here is positive. LSU’s defense played exceptionally well, but the offense looked like they were taking the day off. I know that it is hard to get pumped up for a game with Kentucky in the same way that you did against Oregon and West Virginia. There’s an energy factor that is missing in the smaller games. Nevertheless, a championship team has to play with more discipline than LSU’s offense did in this game. They only had 14 points in the first half, and that is not good.
Jordan Jefferson made his first showing of the season after being reinstated from his suspension. He looked rusty, but he’s good even when he’s rusty. I understand why Coach Miles likes him. They can run the option with Jefferson in a way that is not possible with Lee, and Jefferson is just more of a threat in general on the ground than Lee will ever be. That being said, Lee has led the team to a 5-0 record, and that is nothing to sneeze at. LSU is deep, and they have shown that their depth applies even to the quarterback position.
One last thing: Tyrann Mathieu for Heisman. What an unbelievable player.
