Now that I've had a few hours to calm down...


I just want to say that I'm disappointed with how the game against Arkansas played out.  We all knew this game was going to be tough, and I don't think anyone was overly confident we'd come away with a win. 

 

But what I didn't expect was for us to lose the way we did. 

 

What I've always loved and respected about Les is that he plays to win.  He makes calls that put his team in a position to win.  He trusts his players to make the plays to win.  

 

But today, for whatever reason, and perhaps it doesn't all fall on Les - I felt like we were playing to not lose.  The playcalling, the few decisions that a game hangs on - it seemed all of them were made conservatively by the coaching staff, and I can't understand why.  This season, and Miles' tenure overall, have been defined by his teams' aggressive, emotional, confident approach to the defining moments of each game.  But today for maybe the first time I can remember, each time we had to make a decision between playing aggressively or playing conservatively, we chose the ladder.  

 

I think that's what hurts about this loss.  Clearly Arkansas was better today, against the LSU team that showed up.  But i'm disappointed because that wasn't the LSU team that I've watched all season.  It wasn't LSU football.  

 

Hats off to the players and all of the coaches though.  It's been a great season and I am proud of the way they've represented this university.

 

Geaux Tigers!
