I was thinking and talking to my friend yesterday about what it would take to win next week while watching Alabama destroy Arky. Both of those teams are rhythmic teams (LSU Alabama) They are good and damn good....However if we jump on them early (which is a big if) we have the ability to mess with the team chemistry. If I was to come up with a game plan I would run North and South on LSU and test their safeties with some deep passes early. I would go for blood and I would go for blood early.
We should steal a page from ULM and play like we have nothing to lose. I saw this in Tennessee back in 2004 Auburn raced to a 31-3 halftime lead en route to a 34-10 win over No. 10 Tennessee for the Tigers' first win in Neyland Stadium since 1983. Auburn QB Jason Campbell was 12 of 15 for 240 yards and two TD strikes in the first half. I understand that team went on to have great success but in the beginning of the year we were huge underdogs going into Knoxville. By the second qtr that team was so shocked they were arguing with each other and not focusing on their reads and breakdowns. they were impatient and sloppy.
If we run north and south and have keihl look at the deep and mid reads we have the speed at receiver to get open. Will we win probably not but I think if we jump out to 14-0 or 14-3 start we might send them into shell shock. I would really work with Kiehl and the receivers this week on route running and timing. I don't think rolling out or play action pass will work against LSU's Dline. (however I am not a coach)
Also ULM did something that was successful which is dump to the first read receiver. I hardly saw the ULM QB go to a second read.However, more plays means more chance for turnovers but if we could play LSU's quickness against its self that could be our gameplan to win. Making quick crisp routes would be good to practice with some curls, slants, wheel routes, maybe work on OMAC and the screen. get the rhythm and timing down and we could see an amazing game. Giving Kiehl an extra second or two in the pocket will be huge next week.
I don't know just my thoughts.....
I don't remember a point spread but to say Auburn was a HUGE underdog can not be correct. Auburn was ranked #8 in the country and Tennessee was #10. Auburn was 4-0 and that 4-0 included a win over then #5 LSU at home. If Tennessee was favored, I would bet ANYTHING it was by less than a Touchdown. So to say Auburn was "huge underdogs" is a grossly inaccurate statement.
I was talking about in the beginning of the year before the season even started.
OH! I apologize. I misread the post. That would be a very accurate statement then given the 2003 season we had just came off of. My apologies.
I think you need to put down the crack pipe.
It took OVERTIME to beat LaMonroe.
Alabama fans love Alabama football
Auburn fans love Auburn University
well you can roll over and be pessimistic but the great thing about college football is every team is beatable on any given day. ALL IN !
