LSU vs. Wisconsin: A Tale of Two Halves

LSU vs. Wisconsin: A Tale of Two Halves

LSU struggled through the 1st half Saturday. Only to turn it on in the 2nd half and steal a victory. Yesterday, ESPN College Gameday's Twitter dropped this interesting stat on us: Under Les Miles, LSU is 22-21 after trailing in the 4th quarter. The Tigers are the only FBS program with a winning record in such games. — College GameDay (@CollegeGameDay) August 31, 2014 The stat is somewhat astonishing. Naysayers will probably point to the fact that LSU is often a team that shouldn't be needing to come from behind in the 4th quarter. Yet, this is also a remarkable testament in Miles'...

SEC Power Poll Ballot Week 1

It's back, and more random than ever! The SEC Power Poll returns, and my ballot is a bit of a puzzle. None of the power teams, outside of Georgia and A&M, looked all that impressive, but the bottom half of the conference, outside of Vandy, looked pretty darn good. This makes it look like this is a season in which the gap has narrowed between the sharks and the minnows, and it will be hard for anyone to dominate. Of course, it's only been one week and looks are often deceiving. We'll see how things look going forward. 1 Georgia In a weekend during which every SEC team exposed their flaws,...

First Impressions: LSU 28, Wisconsin 24

I have no idea how that happened Remember the mantra of Delusional Optimism: I do not care about moral victories, therefore, I do not care about moral losses. But this was pushing it. There's no way to call this a pretty, or even an impressive, win. LSU looked lost for long stretches of the game, and after finding themselves in a 24-7 hole, finally got to digging themselves out of it. Wins are wins, but LSU did not look like anything approaching a complete team. Hell, I still don't know how we won this game. Wisconsin rushed for 268 yards on 39 carries which, not to put too fine a point on...

Ten Sentences: Wisconsin

A few words on the Badgers. Founded in 1848, a band of fur trappers established the University of Wisconsin when they "killed ‘em a few a cases of High Life and passed out where they lay." When the United States government bestowed land grant status upon the university, Miller Brewing commemorated the occasion by producing High Life in camo cans. Badger fans still drink High Life from camo cans to this day, and it is widely regarded as one the greatest traditions in college football Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen is just a boring T-1000. The Badgers have started the same person at...

Why Alabama Wins

Process, Schmocess Last week, The Smoking Musket posted an interesting thinkpiece, arguing that the Alabama dynasty might already be over, we just don't know it yet. I highly recommend you go read it, as it makes a historic argument that we never see the dynasty's end coming. While I'd like to believe it is always darkest before the dawn, and we are ready for a new Alabama-free era to begin... we aren't going to be that lucky. OK, I do doubt Alabama will win three national titles in four years again if for no other reason that a playoff makes upsets more likely. However, Alabama is still...

Playin' "Nice": B5Q

Isn't this what they call "Wisconsin Nice?" Andrew Rosin of B5Q chimes in on some other questions we had... So did y'all ever figure out who won Dan versus Dave? I ask because Wisconsin seems permanently trapped in 1992 with the whole "Jump Around" thing. Listen, if living in a world where Chris Farley and Phil Hartman are still alive, gas is under a buck a gallon, the right to bear arms only involved Super Soakers and the Daddy Mack and the Mack Daddy made America 'Jump Jump' is considered a problem, then I suppose we're about to have a scrap friend. Can y'all bring some poutine with you...

Ten Sentences: Leonard Fournette

Ten quick thoughts on Leonard Fournette. "Heisman Candidate, All-American, National Title" is what Leonard Fournette expects of himself this season. Cam Cameron said Leonard Fournette is everything we thought he was... and then some, while Les Miles has compared him to Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods. While I understand wanting to temper expectations, there's a reason Leonard Fournette is talked about like he is. Fournette ran for 200 yards in 6 straight games to start his high school career, thus achieving early is not a dream; it's an expectation. When Fournette breaks a long run on...

Playin' Nice: Bucky's Fifth Quarter

Mike Fiammetta of B5Q was so kind as to update us on what to expect out of the Badgers on Saturday. 1. We've seen the reports on Tanner McEvoy taking over as the starting quarterback. Do you think he's really supplanted Joel Stave for the season, or is this just a bit of gamesmanship by Gary Andersen to try and play the better matchup? The quarterback situation remains up in the air, no matter what anyone will tell you. This all ratcheted up last Friday, when the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel cited three unnamed sources saying Tanner McEvoy would be the starter. Wisconsin released its depth...

Cam Cameron and The Baseline Competence of QB Play

What can LSU expect from it's young QBs in 2014? Are they doomed to failures past? Or is Cam Cameron ushering in a new era? Les Miles knows how to win with bad quarterbacks. Over a four-year span, he won 41 games and an SEC Title with a QB pair that produced this: Completions Attempts Completion % Passing Yards Yards Per Attempt Touchdowns Interceptions QB Rating 714 1243 57.35 8,682 7.2 66 41 126.95 It's not a screaming, woeful lack of production. It's an inefficient, turnover prone nightmare. There's not one thing in that stat sheet that screams "decent." Not only were they...
