    Would Mathieu have made a difference Saturday night for lsu?

    Kind of hit me awhile ago how ironic it is that some kids mistake that happened during the off season could possibly have cost his team a shot at the National Championship.That maybe with Mathieu in the game maybe the game winning drive doesnt happen.

    He disappeared against you last year. In fact, you guys picked on him all night long in January.

    Re: Would Mathieu have made a difference tonight for lsu?

    It's hard to say, but it is possible that he could have been exploited. In terms of just coverage, he's not that great. It is the other things he does that were so important. He would have changed the game some, but I don't think there is any way to say thet win with him.

    Alabama almost put the game on ice up until that fumble. The statistics leaned towards LSU, but part of that was a string of bad breaks for Alabama. LSU never stopped Alabama's running game, and LSU's running game never really got going against Alabama. The game played out that way because LSU had a few more big passing plays than Alabama, coupled with Alabama's two turnovers. You play that game again and there's no way that third downs go the way they did twice. You change the game at all, and it's quite possible that it favors the team that was more fundamentally sound, which was Alabama.

    He couldn't cover Norwood last year. Don't know why he' be able to this year either.

    Yeah he's overrated..........athletic but not very smart. Wonder how his mother feels seeing her son go from nationally celebrity with 1st round predictions to kicked of the team, bonded from jail on drug charges and many predicting he won't get drafted or maybe even enter the draft.

    He was an exciting overall player, like special teams, but could not cover the better receivers well.

    Fowler OR Hart would have made more of a difference.

    Losing the right side of the line was their biggest loss I would think. One was a freshman and the other a sophomore?

    Imaging losing steen and fluker.

    Good article on their injury situation. Not a new article though.

    Actually I think he's an awesomely talented athlete for his size
    He brings intangibles similar to David Palmer or Javier Arenas (on the field, only).

    But .......... if you ask that question I think you have to be fair and ask if Richardson would have made a difference for us.
