I spent last night flipping between your game and the Kansas State-Oklahoma State game. We play Kansas State, and I considered your game a preview of the best that we'll face next season in the SEC. Although the two games were polar opposites (no one in the Big 12 plays defense this year, and that unfortunately includes A&M), it made for some enjoyable viewing.
I felt going into the game that LSU was going to win, simply because I thought you were terrific along both lines, and your defensive line rotation would be able to stop Trent Richardson and the Alabama offense. I figured 'Bama's defense was stout enough to slow down your offense, so the game would come down to which team was able to manufacture points with their defense and special teams. No team I have watched this year has been better at manufacturing non-offensive scores than LSU has, and I felt that would be the case last night. Your team excels at pouncing on minor mistakes by the opposition, and turning them into big plays and scores, and I thought this would make the difference last night. The interception at your one yard line is a perfect example.
When the game went to overtime, I knew you had it won. Congrats on a terrific win. Soak it in, you deserve it.
Look forward to playing y'all next season. Gig'em!!
