      There were only 3 hard games LSU actually played this year. Auburn 23-20, Texas 45-38, and I'll include Alabama ONLY because they had to play catch up against LSU third string.

          Joe Burrow is insane. On that last TD pass where LSU went 28-17, that hit at 5:06 tore some of his rib cartilage and left him in a world of pain. Not many QBs can take that and then play the rest of the game like he did.

                      Clemson 29-0, 50-0 when scoring first, 89-0 when up by double digits... and they fell to LSU like all the rest. Think about it - LSU had the Biletnikoff winner drop a sure TD, missed a gimme FG and knelt on the 4 to end the game. They could have scored 60 in this game - 60, on the #1 scoring defense in the nation. Unbelievable.

                        On Monday I found out one reason for Burrow's elusiveness (absolutely not the only one, of course), is #76 on the OLine, who committed an mind-boggling number of holdings in the game (many against one of our backups, no less). Check out the right tackle from 1:31-1:35 (a touchdown play that should have been called back). And the LT at 4:22 (also another TD that should have been called back). Add to that Clemson's late TD that was called back for Offensive PI when the WR was simply trying shed himself of the DB hanging onto him (it was really defensive PI) and it would have been more competitive. I still think LSU would have won - Joe Burrow and those WR simply had the talent and resourcefulness to handle pretty much any situation, but the but the 17 point spread (not the overall result) was a product of incorrect officiating.

I find it entertaining and "fun" to go through all the rituals they lay out (deaths, general headlines, a few things id never publicize etc) and try to decide what narrative they are pushing and why. I guess I love to theories.

Okla. Baylor and Oregon.
