    Re: How good is LSU?

    I tend to believe and probably won't be the only one but LSU will be undefeated by the time Bama plays them given they don't play a team that is pass happy and has a half decent defense that can get them into some 3 and out situations. And if you go by past history, LSU is usually a 1-loss or less team.

    Re: How good is LSU?

    LSU looks better, but we are often tricked early in the season. Remember when Texas beat Notre Dame and everyone said that Texas was back? But, then we realized that Texas and Notre Dame were both terrible. It's hard to judge a win early in the season because it's hard to know how good LSU's win is until we see Texas play more games to see how good they actually are. We also need to see LSU play more games to get an idea of how good they are.

    This discussion should be had in November. Talking about LSU makes the Alabama fan base a bit like LSU; desperate to win one game.

    Re: How good is LSU?

    This game was set up to be the Texas is back game by ESPN and ABC, but LSU ruined their plans. They are getting way more credit than they deserve because Texas's defense was terrible. LSU is better offensively, but against a Big 12 offense, I am still not convinced they will be better against the top SEC defenses. Auburn has a good defense and will give them problems. Time will tell.

    I tend to agree with you, but we won't know for sure until LSU plays someone with a defense.

    Re: How good is LSU?

    Didnt see the game but things I know:

    1) CFB (not just UA) fans are guilty of over-reacting.......and

    2) over-concluding


    Too early, folks. Dont believe me, just go ask 2010 Heisman winner in September, Dennard Robinson.

    Im actually pleased with us at this point. I think we peaked too soon in 2012 and 2013, getting a BCS break in 12 (thanks Buckeyes).

    Others? Well see.

    Re: How good is LSU?

    I'm glad we play LSU later in the season because our coaching staff will have a lot of film to study by then. Texas really had only one game of film to study this "new look" LSU offense and LSU certainly didn't have to show much of their playbook against Georgia Southern. By the time we play them they will have played some quality opponents so our coaching staff should know most of their tendencies.

Their first TD was unfortunately a bad read by an experienced DB playing on an injured ankle. Anyway, give Texas credit, they played hard, gashed us on a 19 play drive, and has us on the ropes. We were just a little better.

    LSU needs to learn how to add balance, but until then we couldn’t afford to run the ball against Texas. It was a sprint and we needed to keep separation. We have highly touted but inexperienced freshman RBs. They will get lots of work over the next 3 games.

    As for Burrow, he has been a different QB since the Bama game last year in terms of passing efficiency. He is built for this offense. I don’t expect him to keep up this pace, but I can see him throwing for 35 TDS. He is tough as nails and I love his leadership.

    Ill give Orgeron credit, he wants to learn from his mistakes. Y’all talk about Fournette and the 2015 game...Les Miles is in Kansas driving those people crazy trying to run into brick walls. Orgeron and company started to open up the offense after the Bama loss last year, realizing he needed to change something up.

    I expect we will be competitive in every game and if things fall our way, we could be in the playoffs even with a Bama loss.

    Finally, I said it on here last week, Stingley (24) may end up being the best cornerback we will ever have. He is a true freshman and that breakup/near Int he had against their best receiver was a thing a beauty.

    I will enjoy this season.

The guy is tough as nails, not going to lose games for you and I respect the heck out of the type player he is.

    However, I'm not ready to put him into the "Elite passer" category as of yet. His first two games have been against Ga Southern and a Texas team with not only a "Big 12 defense". But with true freshman CB's and an idiot DC who refused to get out of man coverage even though his CB's were getting severely beat off the LOS all night long. Burrow made some nice passes during that game, don't get me wrong. But also benefited from a lot of things that had nothing to do with his passing talent that he will not once he gets into SEC defenses and those SEC defenses have more film on their new toy.
    Throwing for 471 yards is one heck of a game manager. Did Trent Dilfer or Jeff Hostetler ever do that?

    You're comparing players who played in era's that how the game was played was night and day. Middle of the road quarterbacks throw for 250+ yards per game in today's football.
