Texas CB's gonna need to grow up quick this week. Heck, the majority of the D for that matter. I think our offense can put some points on the board. Gonna be fun to watch. 28-21 Texas.

In the past 2 regular seasons LSU hasn’t given up over 30 points to anyone in 4 qtrs... and this defense will be the best we’ve had in that span

No pretty sure it was in regards to the dumb*** comment...let’s not play dumb


But yes the constant measuring between the two is exhausting, and honestly I’m surprised y’all aren’t tired of repeating the same thing back an forth.

Good luck to everyone’s teams this weekend. Even if I hate your teams....they’re your teams!! Who cares....it’s just football.

Im curious as to how Texas lacks in the running game? They can produce with Sam and Ingram, not to mention Johnson and Gbenda getting carries.

This is where i stand LSU doesn’t give up a lot of points in general and we should be getting better. I’d say 24 pts would be the number for us to beat to win.

I think he's referring to your #91 ranked rushing offense last year, #75 currently this year after playing La Tech, and this year only have 1 healthy RB available.

I think it is something like 27-24 and a coin flip either way. I'll call it 27-24 Texas because that is how I want the coin to flip.

I am looking forward to one helluva game.

??? You serious? You have a converted QB and a converted LB as your 2 and 3. Maybe I missed something, but that plus a stifling LSU defense doesn’t add to winning on the ground. Sam can’t run against LSU and last 4 quarters....even JFF couldn’t do it. And Sam is no JFF. LSU is no Georgia.

That's where these CFB conversations get silly. When folks are always looking in the rearview mirror. Different Oline, Different starting running back, etc... It's like making a simple assumption that progression does not take place regardless of who is running the ball or blocking, lol.

Not knocking the 2 and 3.....just saying it’s not gonna scare anyone on the other side of the ball. Who knows, they might run it right up LSU’s ***, but I doubt it.

You're right, Sam is more of a Tebow with a better arm. It's good to see you hold them in such high regard.

They're just "another" football team on the schedule.

Texas is 7-1-1 versus LSU, there's not a fear factor.

Herman is 3-0 as a Head Coach versus SEC programs, what's to be scared of.

LSU is 3-12 all-time on the road in Top 10 games, the worst mark by any team to have played at least 10 such games. Too bad they have to play Bama on the road every other year. lol

Yes, they have owned Aggie. We're talking Texas here... and Yes there is plenty of sarcasm in this post!

I think they are at least a little concerned about it. They went so far as to ask BJ Foster if he could play a little running back if needed.

Concerned about depth and production are still 2 different items to discuss. If this seasons OL does their job, they'll get production from whomever they put out there which is what Eradicator was busting my balls over last week.

You can call it silly if you want, but THIS year you ran for 153 yards against LA tech (#75 in country during week 1) and you have 1 RB left....

I call it silly to presume you have a good ground game based off of that myself. Just because you say it, doesn't make it true, show me the evidence.

5.1 ypc for Texas against La Tech.
3.7 ypc for LSU against GSU.

I am worried about the run game if Ingram or Sam goes down. No matter who they have they aren't gonna pile up rushing yards against LSU's D. All they have to do is be good enough to keep LSU guessing and to hold on to the ball to give the defense a blow.

You should be worried about the run game when your 2 & 3 RB's are a converted FR QB and LB. If they were a good RB, they would of been playing RB. It's nobody's fault, and just bad luck, but how many times have you ever heard of that happening?

Ingram and your QB can only carry the ball so many times, and when Ingram needs a break it will give LSU D the advantage when a true freshmen non-RB steps in to fill the void.

All I was saying that based on last year (Which lets not pretend EVERYONE is using last year as a reference for this year in regards to how good teams are ex: Georgia victory....) and having 1 scholarship RB available would suggest a less then elite run game.

I'm worried about the run game should another injury occur.

Look, the ESPN FPI model says they don't stand a chance. We'll, 20% isn't nothing so an ever so slight chance of winning if they show up.

I'd say Tebow is a pretty good comparison. I think Tebow was probably a better runner and a little more instinctive into turning nothing into something but SE is def. the better passer from the little I have seen.

Which they should be able to do. God forbid LSU try to play man and blitz which feeds into Sam's game.

I actually agree with ETM. And kind of with Chad. Ingram and Sam can handle the load and be effective BUT that is not what we want. This is only the 2nd game. Texas absolutely can't afford to put Sam in a position carrying the load. And the RB position is so thin right now that Texas needs to find a way to survive until someone (anyone) gets healthy again.

Texas has to play cautious if you are looking at the big picture for the season. Advantage LSU.

Agreed. They're not handing out the Big 12 trophy on Saturday night.

They're just "another" football team on the schedule.

Texas is 7-1-1 versus LSU, there's not a fear factor.

Herman is 3-0 as a Head Coach versus SEC programs, what's to be scared of.

LSU is 3-12 all-time on the road in Top 10 games, the worst mark by any team to have played at least 10 such games. Too bad they have to play Bama on the road every other year. lol

Yes, they have owned Aggie. We're talking Texas here... and Yes there is plenty of sarcasm in this post!
Got another number for you

Coach O is 7-1 against the spread vs top 10 teams at LSU

If Hot Lips still has any U H left in him he will not lean towards caution. He will play you until the wheels fall off then throw you in the scrap pile.

Go check out TH ATS record. That's why the betting line will continue to grow!


Tom Herman teams are 13-2-1 against the spread and 10-6 straight up as the dog.

Ingram and your QB can only carry the ball so many times, and when Ingram needs a break it will give LSU D the advantage when a true freshmen non-RB steps in to fill the void.

All I was saying that based on last year (Which lets not pretend EVERYONE is using last year as a reference for this year in regards to how good teams are ex: Georgia victory....) and having 1 scholarship RB available would suggest a less then elite run game.
That is reasonable. It would definitely be better having a bunch of good running backs. But, the run game is usually more defined by the OL than the back. I would be more worried if Texas lost their left tackle.

I never thought there was a situation that Texas could beat LSU on the ground. They just need to be credible enough for play action to work and to move the chains.

What Texas will have to do, that it hasn't shown it can do, is hit big plays down the field to their wide receivers. They ain't going to do that if LSU is dropping 8. But, if LSU is dropping 8, Texas will be able to run with whoever it throws back there.

I don't expect LSU to drop a bunch of guys. I expect them to load the box and make Ehlinger beat them with his arm. Or, maybe play Texas square and rely on their athletic ability.
