Some things to think about with this bowl game

by Mike (bart), Monday, December 04, 2017, 07:19

- We almost always get blown out in 'ranked vs ranked' matchups post Nov. 1. I think the average margin in these types of games since 1993 is like 41-17 or something

- Team looked bad at the end of the year. Lots of stuff on film about how to beat us.

- LSU finished the year hot, winning their last 3 games by 20+ points


- This isn't *that big* of a game. It is the 3rd or 4th biggest game of that day, it's an early afternoon start, and there aren't really any stakes, so the big game bugaboos hopefully won't descend on us too badly

- Team perhaps looked bad because they were worn down? The decline was pretty global, particularly in effort-intensive, small-margins-are-decisive stuff like red zone efficiency. Could have that toughness that we exhibited in October

- LSU's last 3 wins were over teams that all fired their coaches.
