    By Jess Nicholas, TideFans.com Editor-In-Chief Nov. 4, 2012   There are a pair of sayings in competitive bowling that, rather illogically, apply to college football from time to time.   The first is ďout-bowling your score,Ē which is a term for making great shots but not scoring as highly as you thought you should. The [...]

    It's depressing to read that insight but not one point can I argue. I hope we can fix those mistakes before A&M.

    Thx for the insight, Jess.

    I've got a worry-wart streak about a mile wide before games (not so much, strangely, once the game starts). The comments concerning injuries landed squarely in the middle of said streak.

    Sorry it was late. Connection problems the site apparently had extended to me. I was working on remote, anyway, which didn't help.

    the biggest thing i took away from this game, is with all of the problems we had in the second half, we took the game. we didn't get a lucky bounce or a fluke play, our battered and tired d got the offense the ball back twice in the last four minutes of the game, then the o marched down the field in a dominant fashion to win, then the d came back and sealed the deal.

    Agree with all Jess. If a team ever needed a week's R and R, this one sure does. It's the cost of playing as the top dog in the nation, not to mention in the bone-breaking SEC. Every game we play is a circle on that opponent's calendar. It has to wear a team out fighting off every other team's best effort for the year. They're a tired team, mentally, physically and emotionally.

    Fourth quarter conditioning played a big hand in bringing this win to fruition. At the start of the fourth quarter I saw all the LSU fans holding up four fingers and told my wife, "the 4th qtr. is OUR strong suit".

    I've been concerned with the safety play all year. It is going to have to be better against A&M, like you said. But Bama makes the yards tough to come by. And Lsu probably alone can withstand the physical play for the whole game.

    Didn't think about it until your analysis, but you are right....what a giant loss in Hightower. Who on the roster can take his spot? I thought Devall would, but he's been playing Jack.

    Yeah, the injuries are my biggest concern at this point. I have no doubt that CNS and CKS will get the defensive scheme issues resolved, but we're beat all to hell and back. Hopefully EL can keep grinding out carries and Amari Cooper can get back and healthy over the next few weeks; Coop's ankle should be 100% by the bowl game anyway. In the meantime, the guys have just got to whatever they can to get by. There's no such thing as bad win at this point.

    Imo, no other team in the country comes out of Red Stick with a win last Saturday Night. Hats off for pulling that one out of the fire.
