Hood: Fatigue makes cowards of us all

The teams that might have the best shot at beating Alabama next season are the ones that run the hurry-up, no-huddle offenses, like Clemson and Texas A&M. Full Story »

HAHAHHAHA. that was a spit my drink ROTFL. Clicking this link title on the board and then opening up to see that picture. Funniest thing all day. Haven't even read the article yet.

nutrition were big factors also! Remember the games before the bowl where Tiger players looked much fitter than LSU players. Much less body fat and then the news about LSU eating much more steak at steakeating contest! I would like to congratulate our fitness staff and especially the nutritionist!

I also do not agree with the way the word coward is being used in that one game. I also have watched that one game at least 10 times. To anyone that agree's they saw any cowards on that field that night wasn't watching that game. IMO I didn't see not one coward on that field that night. Every time I have watched that game, I saw two well talented/coached teams fighting each other with everything they had to give That Night. There were no cowards playing. But there was one of the teams that were in better condition. That team was the fighting Tigers from Clemson University. I applaud the work that our team and coaches put forth to win that game that night. No cowards played in the Chic-fil-a Bowl on December 31, 2012. I did see Tajh Boyd prove to the SEC world that he was a real man amongst men.

Don't forget, David Hood was not calling them cowards, he was quoting Vince L.
Also you say superior strength and conditioning? I thought we had the worst s&c program in college football. Guess that group of haters are wrong too.


The difference....


Posted: Feb 22, 2013 11:16 AM
 

...between aTm and Clemson is that aTm had a dominant OL led by two future NFL staters at OT. Clemson has neither of those. It's my opinion the Clemson will continue to struggle with SEC teams until they recruit better on the OL.


Yep we sure struggled against Auburn and LSU

go away coot troll. You're incredibly lucky that the Chad's game plan against the coots was one of his worst since he's been here. Had he called the game like he did LSU, FSU, or Auburn it's have been a much, much different outcome.


How did your vaunted SEC OL do against LSU?

Posted: Feb 22, 2013 11:33 AM
 

Oh, wait, you lost...

Did you not read the article? You don't necessarily need world-beaters on the OL for this kind of offense. Our scheme makes things a lot easier on the OL because of how many people touch the ball.


That was a low blow asking a Coot if he read anything.

I don't know what the difference was ... but it was profound!

Coaching, motivating, game plan, and fitness and conditioning and nutrition plus players willing to gut it out!

Those would all be crucial differences, except


Posted: Feb 22, 2013 1:11 PM
 

not much changed on those fronts from one season to the next.

Mostly the same coaches, mostly the same players, mostly same S&C, pretty much the same nutrition.

Why were these players more "willing to gut it out"?

IMHO, Senior leadership seems to be perhaps the most important variable ...

Of course it doesn't help when you completely abandon the run game, which was working, and completely trash your game plan.

been dropping like flies too.

In fact, no matter who we run 100 plays against, we are going to win.

In order for our offense to run 100 plays, our defense has to play well and our offense has to sustain possessions.

None of that happened against SCAR.

One of their daddy's would be LSU, so I would say they/coots took another beating from their daddy. LSU equals a Lost for them again as usual!!!

Sorry - but absolutely abhor articles like this. Even though it's well-written with lots of ORANGE ink, it's pretty lame IMO. No offense towards the author as it was a work of art for sure.

But LSU could have easily WON that game if their OC had simply run 3 plays at the end instead of passing the ball and using no clock - thus saving all of our timeouts. So to act cocky about that game, even though it was our best victory in ages, is lame.

Also, UNTIL WE BEAT THE DAYUM CHICKENS - IT DON'T MEAN CHIT!!!

Which brings me to this question. Do we have any intentions of actually beating USUC in our lifetime??????


Running three straight times would have been stupid


Posted: Feb 22, 2013 11:47 AM
 

We stacked the box on the first down play thus a throw was the right decision and got them 7-8 yards. They had a man wide open on the 2nd down play so obviously it was well designed, the QB just missed the throw. The third down play was a run blitz from Venables had they run it it wouldn't have worked. They could have eaten up clock yes but we moved down the field so quickly that it still wouldn't have mattered.


Didn't you see LSU's coach reaction to "not running"?


Posted: Feb 22, 2013 11:55 AM
 

Clemson "was stacking up against the line of scrimmage preventing the run". And by the way LSU beat your coots!

actually that would be 3.


Posted: Feb 22, 2013 2:17 PM
 

I don't want to talk smack because they have been the better team the last 4 years. It is funny they win four in a row for the first time since the late 40's and early 50's and back to back for the third time in almost 50 years when in the same time frame we won 15 back to back and just prior to their current streak we won 10 out of 12. They think they own us I hate to tell them they have a long way to go to pay off their debt much less own anything. Enjoy your run coots cause it ends soon and the blip in the course of the entire rivalry will be over and it will be back to business as usual.


They averaged less than 2 yards a carry on 24 of their 25


Posted: Feb 22, 2013 2:56 PM
 

rushes...They would have faced 4 and 4 at best if they tried to run it 3 straight times...


Re: How did your vaunted SEC OL do against LSU?


Posted: Feb 22, 2013 11:43 AM
 

My point is that aTm was so successful in the SEC (3rd in the West) because they had a great OL with an offense similar to Clemson's. Without those great OTs they would've floundered.


I suppose the same goes for UF and Auburn on their runs?***

LSU the team that wore your rear ends out and we wore theirs out. If we don't gift wrap 10 points that game isn't close.

Yes, they did......at night, at home, by 2 points. What does that have to do with anything? Oh, so you're saying that Clemson beat LSU and LSU beat South Carolina so Clemson > South Carolina. If only Clemson and South Carolina could've played last year to determine who was better.......oh.....wait.

Ponti,continue your delusional thoughts about the Gamechickens being better than Clemson. We don't mind. Take a look at the entire record and you will see who is the "real college football team" in South Carolina, and most of the games were played in your stadium. Perhaps you remember "Big Thursday" of some years back. You have had some success over the last few years as we were rebuilding our program. We look forward to the game this year!!!

beat Alabama at Alabama's game. They have the best players recruited every year for that style. Those that don't cut it are kicked off the team and replaced with oversigned players. The way to even the playing field is to run up tempo to wear down their studs. Why do you think Saban hates the up tempo and thinks rules need to be in place to slow it down? He knows it is the only style that has any chance to stop his machine.

LSU did a poor job managing the game by letting guys get that worn down. They had injuries, but they recruit in the sec so their two deep should be able to give them quality time on the field. The problem was their offense is so abhorrent even by sec standards. The only reason scu beat us this year was they hung onto the ball without actually scoring.

You don't beat teams like Alabama and LSU with Offense

[1]
Posted: Feb 22, 2013 1:24 PM
 

you beat them with defense. I don't care how high flying your offense is if the defense can't get off the field. TAMU was able to get bama into 3 and outs pretty much all the first qtr when they built their lead. IIRC they were up 21-0 at the end of the 1st. When Bama went to the slow plodding offense, they kept TAMU off the field and got it back to a 1 score game.

The defense beat LSU in the CFA Bowl. We dared them to throw it and they couldn't.


Yes you do, that is the ONLY way you beat them

[1]
Posted: Feb 22, 2013 1:29 PM
 

We would not win if we tried to run an LSU/Alabama type of offense. You have to keep their defense guessing or wear them out to score. I agree that you may have to get some stops, but that goes both ways. If neither team gets a stop, they score on every possession.


Re: Front Page Story: Hood: Fatigue makes cowards of us all


Posted: Feb 22, 2013 2:23 PM
 

If the clock stops because someone is hurt and has to be helped off the field, that person should have to sit out the rest of the possession imo.

The NCAA rules committee should take a look and establish what is truly an injury and exhaustion. They could institute an 'injury' clock like in Wrestling, but it is designated for non-serious injuries (cramps). Once the clock is maxed, it is either time outs removed. If TO are exhausted, then it becomes a 15 yrd unsportsmanlike penalty.
