Silencing the Ole Ball Coach

Last night's LSU win, 28-16, over South Carolina was the only second time in Spurrier's coaching and playing career that he has lost in Tiger Stadium (the other being in 1997 when #14 LSU upset then #1 Florida, 28-21, in which I was one of the thousands that rushed the field after the game!)

It was a sloppy game due to the rain and had it not been for that I believe we would have beat them by even more. Once again the defense dominated by allowing only 17 rushing yards and except for the slightly too conservative defense and not conservative enough offense in the final few minutes, very few total yards. My favorite stat so far of the season is that in 4 straight games LSU has chased the starting QB. That has to be a record!

Now I think comes one of our biggest challenges of the season next week against Tulane. In no way are they capable of beating us athletically, but if we get caught overlooking that game in anticipation of the big game against Florida the following week, anything can happen.
