If you are a disgruntled Tiger fan or a person unfortunate enough not to be an LSU fan, but you still need to be pessimistic, I'll do you a favor and write your talking points for you so you don't have to think.
The LSU Tigers continued their disappointing season with a 29-7 victory over the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday night. Once again, the offense struggled, as quarterback Jordan Jefferson was again held under 100 yards passing. Despite the seemingly lopsided score, it was a lackluster performance by LSU, which relied on 5 MSU interceptions to stay in the game.
MSU opened the second half with an 81 yard touchdown drive that cut the LSU lead to 5 and put the host team on the ropes midway through the third quarter. The anemic Tiger offense repeatedly failed to move the ball, giving place kicker Josh Jasper the opportunity to be the hero. It took a record-setting performance by Jasper--converting 5 field goal attempts--to overcome his teammates' ineptitude. Still the Tiger woes continued long after the game was in hand, as for the second time in three games they fumbled the ball away while trying to run out the clock.
It was the latest in a string of embarrassing performances that justify dropping the team in the polls. With head coach Les Miles long on the hot seat in danger of losing his job, it is becoming clearer than not only the coach must be replaced, but also the athletic director and the entire executive board of the Louisiana State University system. Until such obvious needed changes are made, fans are left wondering if the 2010 Tigers or the 2009 Tigers are the worst 3-0 team ever.
