    Here is passing the test:

    Going into a very hostile environment and moving the ball
    No turnovers
    Extended some plays when OL couldn't block
    Made good throws most of the game..

    His OL failed him today and that was the difference in the ball game. Murphy did fine.

    I thought he played OK... kept a lot of plays alive when most QBs would have been sacked. Missed a few throws when he had time... didn't seem like the WRs were open all that often... and almost no one had an YAC.

    We just don't have a player than can carry the offense.

    Good QB
    Average RBs
    Average WRs
    Below Average OL

    He was good enough to win. He did miss on a few passes but that is going to happen in his first big road game. If he had had even a decent OL, we win. We lost at the point of attack almost all game long especially on passing plays.

    The D could have made some stops to help, but they still held them to 17 when LSU was scoring 40 and 50 points in conference play.

    As much as Will prides himself on his defense, its a shame they have zero scoring support. He could have won the LSU, UGA, and Miami games if his offense was productive.

    I think he played decently. Some bad passes, but he under duress a lot. If he had a decent protection on some of the plays, he could have won the game for us. So it goes.

    TM never had a chance today. He was constantly put behind in the down and distance and the o line couldn't handle the rush on obvious passing downs. If the coaches refuse to change things up vs the better teams then we go in to the game handicapping ourselves

    Murphy played well, didn't make any major mistakes. He did miss several passes to open receivers, a couple that could have been scores. His line sucked today, no way to sugar coat it, our line is dismal. They couldn't block LSU and lost this game. The defense didn't play lights out, but played week enough to win.

    We are not dead in the water for the east, but need more offense than what we showed tonight to make a go of it. Looks like Mizzou may take the east!

    Yeah, I kind of agree with this... I believe Murphy's the best QB on our team, but I didn't think he proved anything with his play today. Of course at the same time there's no doubt that he got very little help from his OL, the running game or our play calling.
