                                                                            LSU vs Bama

First, congrats to the Bama coaches and players on a great victory.  This was an outstanding game plan by both the offense and defense in a tough environment.   

OFFFENSE:   Bama put together 576 yards of total offense, which included 295 yards passing and 281 rushing.  This was a well-balanced attack and possibly the best offensive effort considering the defensive team LSU has.  As far as negative plays, Bama had 5 tackles for losses, 1 sack which was a coverage sack, and an interception which Tua threw into double coverage.  Bama had no three and outs the whole night even though they had a couple of 3rd and longs at the start of their drives.  Bama was also balanced on their plays covering 10+ yards as they had 13 pass plays covering that distance and 10 running plays that covered that distance.  Bama got into the red zone 4 times.  They scored 2 touchdown and kicked a field goal while they punted the other times because of penalties and tackles for losses.  There were also points left on the field that would have made the score worse than it was.

QB:   Tua played a good game.  He did force the ball on the interception but threw some good balls into tight coverage.  He also scrambled well which is obvious since he scored on a 44-yard run.  The good thing is he missed in the right place most of the day.  It looked like the game plan early was to get the ball out of his hands quickly and allow the receivers to use their athletic ability to make yards after the catch.

RB:  The running backs had a great day.  They had a combined 234 yards rushing and averaged over 7 yards a carry against what is supposed to be an elite run defense.  The backs also did a good job picking up the blitzes by LSU.

Rec:  Four different receivers had catches, not counting running back.  Jeudy led the way with 8 catches and the others all had 4 each.  Each of the receivers averaged over 10 yards per catch.  They also did a good job blocking downfield on the big runs by the backs.

OL:  I thought this was their best game of the year, especially in the area of run blocking.  The yards gained mentioned above where the results of the OL blocking.  I also include Hentges here as his did a very good job when leading on some of the plays called.  They got to the second level several times and they got a push against the LSU D line. 

Def:  The defense played very well.  LSU had a total of 196 yards which included 184 passing and 12 rushing.  For negative plays, I have Bama for 8 tackles for losses, 5 sacks, and 1 interception.  I credit Bamaís defense with 5 three and outs, 3 in the first half and 2 in the second half.  For plays that covered 10+ yards, LSU had 6 pass plays and 1 running play.  LSU had only one of those passing plays in the first half and no running plays in the first half that covered that distance.  The run for 10+ yards came on a scramble by the Qb in the 2nd half.  LSU tried to start the game with the quick passing game and continued this throughout the game.  LSU got into the red zone twice and missed one field goal and threw an interception.  One of the amazing stats I watched this game, was how many times Bama rushed more than 4.  In the first half it was 3 times and one of those was a run blitz on a 3rd and short.  In the second half I have them sending more than 4 only 4 times.  Most of the pressure and sacks came when Bama was rushing 4 or less because they only rushed 3 at times.  The only knock was the loss of contain by the end rushers.

DL:  The DL played and outstanding game because of the pressure they were able to apply by rushing only 4 most of the game.  Q Williams played a great game and was held more than once and still made plays or allowed others to make the play since he was double teamed.  They also kept the LSU OL off of the linebackers which allowed them to make plays.

LB:  They played well especially having to get to the short passes and dropping into coverage.  As I said this job was made easy for them because of the work of the DL.

DB: The DBís played well.  Again, to sound like a broken record (many of you will understand this reference) the play of the DL aided the DBís because of their pressure on the QB.  I will say they had a chance for a couple of interceptions which if one was made could have possibly been returned for a touchdown.  They came up and filled well and didnít allow receivers, except on one play, to make many yards after the catch.

Special Teams:  There were a few of problems on special teams.  First, a bad hold by the holder on the first PAT.  The second was a low kick on a PAT which was blocked.  They allowed a big kick off return where they didnít get off of blocks.  Finally, they didnít cover a punt very well that could have pinned LSU down inside the 5.

Penalties:  I have Bama for 9 penalties but two of them were declined.  They were both offsides.  There were 2 false start penalties on the first drive which combined with a couple of tackles for losses which took Bama out of the red zone and forced them to punt.  The pass interference call, I donít think the ball was catchable.  The unsportsmanlike conduct was uncalled for and could have been huge in a tight game because the kickoff is moved back.  The face mask was called, but they could have called holding on that play also.  As a matter of fact, there were a few times, even commented by the announcers, that holding could have been called.

Finally, as well as they played, they could have scored more.  They got into the red zone on the first drive and didnít even get a chance to kick a field goal.  The missed two extra points and they ended up kicking a field goal when getting into the red zone.  These are points left on the field.  If added up this is 5 plus points that could have been scored.

I thought our run game was outstanding. We mostly ran to the right side where Williams is outstanding but our OL has improved since D. Brown has been inserted at RG. I also thought our pass protection was good considering who we were playing.

When you review the film do you break the run game down to right side, middle and left side?

I also think the jet sweep should be considered a run play and not a pass.

Thanks hscoach. Great breakdown. I hope Najee will only be out a couple of days or maybe rest against MSU. Tua looked to me like he was throwing the ball to High a bunch of times. I wonder if his step through with the knee was affected? RTR!

Well the first one wasn't his fault, the other was low looked like a plant foot issue.  I understand Bama has the Number 1 kicker committed.

I didn't break down left or right runs.  The difference from running play to pass play is the little flip, if it is handed then it is a running play.  They are blocked the same way like a running play.

He did throw some high, but I think it has more to do with pressure or presumed pressure.  He may have rushed a couple that caused this.

Did Brown replace Alex Leatherwood and where is Lester Cotton? I thought he was healed up.

Okay, I just looked at the game and saw Leatherwood. I don't think they ever called his name.

They mentioned him once I think.  Brown replaced Cotton, I think.  I also thought he played very well last night.

The bad part is he has shown he can do it.  I  think it is a bit  of a confidence thing right now.  I do think  he needs some slight adjustments with plant foot and alignment.

Brown has started the last two games in place of Cotton. Cotton was dinged up but he has been the weak link on the OL. IMO the OL play has improved since Brown was inserted in the starting line-up.
