I am as mad and upset as anyone here and I think that the way that Les handled the whole game today was simply awful. As the head coach he is responsible for having the players ready to go and clearly that wasn't the case today. Jefferson seemed afraid to run all game,for whatever reason we again did not run the ball enough and the D which has been lightyears better this season was just not on top of their game all day. All of these are failings of the Head Coach and I am unsure of what happened to the man we used to say "fear the hat". My best guess is last seasons debacle has made him coach a little more conservatively with the hope being that less asked will translate into less mistakes. I am not ready to call for Les' head but if we don't play better next week I think we have to start asking ourselves if it's time for him to go.
One thing I am sure of is Gary Crowton's time at LSU should be done. For the better part of the last 2 seasons and even our Title season we seem to ignore our strengths and just start doing wacky crazy things. Today was perfect example on the ,I think, last drive before the end of the 3rd maybe we had a pretty good drive going and then we tried a double fake reverse play action and we of course didn't make it. Jefferson was sacked after waiting too long to get rid of the ball, we had a great drive going using short passing and the run game and instead of staying with it we try to outsmart everyone and only outsmart ourselves. So for me I fire Gary Crowton on the plane ride home but realistically we will probably have to wait till at least the end of the regular season.
I give Les next week to start to right the ship and see what happens after that.
