Upshaw looks solid...

Yea, Upshaw is the guy I want if we cant land a QB.

bored already. Monday Night Raw time.

In all seriousness, only reason to watch the game is defensive prospects.

i don't know whats boring watching these two heavyweights do battle...

anyways...game playing right into lsus hands again

upshaw has shown me the lateral agility already i want to see in a stand up olb...he's a conversion guy all the way...now i want to see some power pass rush play and hand usage...my worry though he looks a little short for ireland and company...i'm nervous about him being a legit 6 ft 2

mark barrons a heat seeking missile in run support...love that guy...you get him in the middle of round 2 i think you stole something...

mathieu for lsu can play for me any day...on the boundary or in the slot where i think cause of his height he'll play more at the next level that kids a football player...tough agressive willing to put his nose in there

so far lsu dline looks like getting the best of bamas oline in the run game...

this games loaded with nfl talent...love it

The Bama run game is waking up...not seeing how this game is playing to LSU so far. Its felt like Bama has been i control and now they are driving again.

01-09-2012, 10:32 PM
i think every one of those lsu secondary players has a pro future...every damn one of em

PJack

Bama is moving the ball, but they better pick up a TD while they are having success. Dont see this going on all game.


D's are REALLY fast...just a different level than any other bowl game.

LordPicklewagon
01-09-2012, 10:35 PM
If Ireland goes by parcells strict requirements for lbs, I don't know if upshaw is on the big board. I hope he's not that myopic but I'm not so sure

tylerdolphin
01-09-2012, 10:36 PM
3 drives where they could have scored...6 points to show. They really needed a TD there.

PJack
01-09-2012, 10:36 PM
i think every one of those lsu secondary players has a pro future...every damn one of em

I think they go 5 or 6 deep too. I'd take these guys over our secondary....right now.

tylerdolphin
01-09-2012, 10:40 PM
LSU is just getting NOTHING on offense. Bama's D is just ridiculous.

Is there any doubt anymore that the two best teams in the country are playing eachother?

Neither team looks like the best team in college football. You gotta be kidding me???

i take it you don't remember the first matchup b/t these two...bama moved the ball all over the place in the first half and kept settling for fgs/fg attempts and lsu got their wind in the second half

tylerdolphin
01-09-2012, 10:43 PM

You realize you are watching two completely suffocating defenses?

No team all year has played LSU close save for Bama...and now they are doing it again.

PJack
01-09-2012, 10:48 PM
I don't love watching defensive battles, but OK St. and Stanford would be lucky to get 20 on either of these teams. Neither of their Ds could hold these teams below that.

tylerdolphin

Laces out!

I could not think of a worse coach for the Fins than Les Miles. I have read he is not a candidate, but Alex Marvez mentioned him as one on QAM today...ugh...

I would take Mangini, Brian Schottenheimer and Herm Edwards over him. Jim Haslett might the only worse candidate that I can think of.

I would love to see what Oregon or Boise State's offense could do to these defenses.....but without a real playoff system in place we will never know.

i've officially found a new guy i have to get more tape on...that wingo kid for lsu...explosive freak athlete...on that last drive he literally tossed the right tackle like a rag doll to the ground...kids lean but i think i can put 15 lbs on him and maybe have something...looking for the next jpp i guess

but i need more wingo tape

PJack
01-09-2012, 11:00 PM

I don't want Saban,but all take the guy whom recruited that defense for our FO. Now that guy knows talent and can put together a D.

hightower continues to underwhelm me...i see his name as a 1st round lb and i'm just like no thanks on that

Roman529
01-09-2012, 11:06 PM

40-27 in the first game of the season.....anything can happen during the first week ...it's like an exhibition game.

Barkavious Mingo you mean? Still very raw, but LSU has 4 or 5 RS guys on the DL who are damn good.

I also understand these are 2 great defenses, but Jordan Jefferson looks like a D3 QB

yeah...thats him...very raw...i thought the same thing about jpp but jpp had a better body...this kid to me is explosive and i see strength in his hands...he stopped richardson in his tracks also

i'm interested

hooshoops
01-09-2012, 11:18 PM
well at some point you have to stop giving em fgs...good grief

PJack
01-09-2012, 11:24 PM
They may need to pull Jefferson. Guy is flat out awful.

hooshoops
01-09-2012, 11:25 PM
i like the way upshaw can break down and then accelerate...good hips for his size good feet...now show me some power rush off the edge against a tackle

Hayden Fox
01-09-2012, 11:28 PM
As OLB Upshaw and Perry of USC would interest me in round one. HOWEVER, I am betting we a 4-3 team by then.

hooshoops
01-09-2012, 11:32 PM
i'm tellin you guys mingo is explosive...bama knows it also...that last drive doubled on 2 plays and split the double on one...he gets off the ball very well...

yeah buddy

tylerdolphin

01-09-2012, 11:37 PM
that knee is wrecked...looks like one of those never play football again injuries to me...break out the cart

PJack
01-09-2012, 11:37 PM
I wonder if Upshaw might be better served to drop a little weight to improve his quickness if he will be standing and dropping into coverage in the NFL. The kid is huge and nimble for his size but I dont see explosive quickness I'd like for an 8 or 9 pick.

Roman529
01-09-2012, 11:40 PM
They may need to pull Jefferson. Guy is flat out awful.

This!!! Put in Jarrett Lee.

Roman529
01-09-2012, 11:42 PM
People paid thousands of dollars to watch a BCS game not a field goal kicking contest. They are booing Les for keeping that turd QB in there.

tylerdolphin

Understatement.

sinPHIN
01-09-2012, 11:43 PM
why the hell do they keep running screens? put lee in. he should have started the second half

tylerdolphin
01-09-2012, 11:43 PM
Gotta bench him at this point.

ChambersWI
01-09-2012, 11:44 PM
again Jordan Jefferson didn't even go for the wide open man.

PJack
01-09-2012, 11:45 PM
LSU is not winning with Jefferson in this game. Probably won't anyway but at least try for Christs sake.

hooshoops
01-09-2012, 11:45 PM
miles is a idiot if he doesn't switch out the qb now... the d is keepin them in the game...make the switch

i agree completly. irvin from wv has more more explosion and quickness

mingo just walked the left tackle right back into the qb on that play...i love this kid

Huge prediction...I smell FG attempt.

If LSU doesn't win, the BCS may be another split title.

I'm sorry this game was a complete waste of 2 hours of my life. I can respect great defense, but I saw more hideous offense than anything.

congrats bama...took em to the woodshed tonight...

and my new guy mingo got owned on that richardson td run by barrett jones...owned...but i kind of expect that from a guy that light...still love him

We've already seen what Oregon's offense could do against LSU's defense. Youtube it and keep watching it until you finally get it.

When you get done with that. Youtube what Oregon's offense could do against Auburn's defense last year (which was terrible by SEC standards) and don't stop until it finally sinks in.

If the Pac-10 wanted a playoff, they should've taken the offer up when the SEC proposed it back in '08.

You little Pac-10 pipsqueaks sure are cute though with your video game offenses.

He has top 10 potential next year, but he's only a sophomore. I watched him blow by offensive tackles before they could even get out of their stance and chase down LaMichael James from behind like he was standing still on the IZ against Oregon.

TedSlimmJr
01-10-2012, 02:29 AM
hightower continues to underwhelm me...i see his name as a 1st round lb and i'm just like no thanks on that


Did you see him playing with his hand on the ground as a DE and blowing plays up in the backfield?

I've always said he's likely to end up a Baltimore Raven. Ozzie Newsome is an Alabama guy through and through, and he always knows where the gems are on Bama's defense.

He'll love Hightower's versatility. There's not many like him.

only a sophomore??? bummer...anyways definitely one to watch next year...if i'm him i'm looking to add 10 good lbs to my frame this offseason...that looks like top 10 pick stuff to me

yes i did...and i think thats what i like most about him...his ability to rush off the edge and provide blitz pressure...i just don't get excited at all about him though as an every down 34 ilb for other duties...but that versatility he has is gonna help him no doubt
