Good morning Tiger fans, I apologize for taking the week off last week, I figure if the Tigers can take the week off before the Tulane game, so can I. First of all, I’ve heard a lot of people criticize Matt Flynn, for the performance he put out last Saturday, but let me just say this — it’s hard to play well when you’re hurt and you’ve got the Tulane defense in your face on every play.
Let that sink in……
It’s hard to play well when you’ve got the Tulane defense in your face on every play. What does that tell you? Our o-line played like shit, that’s what it tells you. While Perrilloux seemed to look better and have a confident presence on the field, he was 1 for 3 for -1 yards. Anybody who saw the game knows that Perrilloux (though I love’em) missed two wide open receivers in the end zone for the 2 passes he didn’t complete. One was way overthrown, the other was way underthrown. Meanwhile, somehow Flynn racked up 258 yards.
All said and done, the Defense did it’s job last Saturday, allowng less than 100 yards on the ground.
Up this week? Florida, who lost to Auburn last week. This game will be unpredictable, to say the least — For LSU, Early Doucet is still out, while for Florida “bubba” Caldwell will play for Florida for the first time in 3 weeks. Tony Joiner will be playing for Florida, who was arrested on felony charges this week for breaking into an impound lot to get his girlfriend’s car back. The owner of the lot calls it a huge “misunderstanding” that Joiner had made arrangements to retrieve the car. Call me skeptical since most people don’t try to pick up their cars from an impound lot at 4:30 in the morning, and break in to do it. Once again Herban Meyer’s policy of “boys will be boys” will prevail.
At any rate, this game is very unpredictable because Florida hasn’t played a defense like our defense (or an offense like our offense) and we haven’t faced an offense as potent as theirs. In the end, I think that a couple of things happen in this game:
1) Florida’s lack of a running game (besides tebow) will become exposed.
2) Our secondary will get tested, but will do okay despite.
3) Matt Flynn and our four headed running back beast will expose Florida’s defense as a team that scheduled a bunch of all-girls schools for the deaf and blind this year.
4) Tebow turns the ball over at least 2 times.
I think LSU wins this one 28-24.
Have a great weekend everybody!
