    I didn't realize a 14-6 win constitutes "domination" and a "beating," good to know. I feel good about our chances of administering a "beating" to Florida on Saturday.

    Pretty sure he meant physical beat down. Not points-wise. We did physically push you around and that is something to be proud of because LSU is always a physical team.

    The year before was domination. But UF was a train wreck.

    14-6 is not a "beating" or "domination" by any objective measure.

    If UF had truly dominated LSU in 2012, they would have won by more than 8 points.

    That's a one possession game.

    Then you simply did not watch the game.

    I watched it, and 8 points will always be 8 points.

    Reading other LSU fans opinions are always amusing, but this year particularly, especially this game.

    It seems that the Tiger fan base has forgotten how LSU has won games for the past 3-4-5 (hell, the Jefferson/Lee era seemed like it was a decade by itself) years. It's always been w/ defense. Now that our defense is horrendous, it's ok, our offense is "unstoppable". Give me a break. Give me a choice between great defense and great offense, I'll choose defense every time.

    With that being said, I keep flopping back and forth w/ thoughts on this game. I haven't watched enough of Florida this year to really form an opinion. LSU's offense is really potent, and is capable of running or throwing the ball very well. In the past, it's always been, stack the box and make LSU throw it. And I think this will be the key in this game as well. If Florida's secondary is good enough to shut down Beckham and Landry w/ man coverage, it will be a long day for Tiger fans. If Mett continues to play at the level he's been playing, and opens up the box a little for Hill, I think we have a pretty good shot at winning in Tiger Stadium.

    A fair assessment. Welcome to gator country, you should post more often.

    You're right. To call it domination might be questionable. We in the O&B will settle for physically dominating, and a simple beating. Glad you feel good. Enjoy that feeling while it lasts. :wave:

    It was the most dominant 14-6 game I've ever seen.

    Not that it matters one bit for this year's game or for any other reason, but there are a couple of objective measures where UF was rather dominating. Scoring ratio: UF 2.3-1, First downs: UF 22-8, Third down convs: UF 50%-8%. You could keep focusing on the fact that the scoring margin was "only" one possession, but...

    In other words, 25% more points than LSU managed to score in 60 minutes. You guys have a great chance to win this weekend, but last year, you got beat pretty good.

    Good show Rade. Bayou Bigmouth's math is a little light. LSU hasn't scored 8 points on a single possession this season... or last.

    Fair assessment. Florida may have the best DBs in the country right now. If anyone is going to shut down the LSU offense, it will be Florida. After that our DL will stop the run. The only way LSU wins this game if they can keep the Florida Defense off balance. I doubt it.

    The next question is will Florida's offense continue to improve. I think so. LSU doesn't have the defense to stop anyone right now.

    2012 in the Swamp was a serious butt-kickin'...that was last year, so it means nothing except that it happened. I'm very cautious about getting too optimistic about that kind of performance in Red Stick this year. We'll show up and they'll keep score and we'll ALL grind with our Gators!

    We will have a hard time with their run game.

    We could. For sure.

    I'm thinking if we play disciplined ball, we won't have that hard a time, though.

    Whenever our guys "just do their #@!$#@ jobs", as Champ's famous little clip from Longhorn days demanded, we play the run very well.

    That and LP getting his whiffs out of the way.... be nice if he could do that in warm ups.

    I don't think their running game is any more potent than Miami. We shut theirs down pretty well.

    LSU may have the most balanced offense we have seen thus far. So if they are creative in their play calling, the could see success.

    However, I think the Florida offense will be strong enough to put more points up on the board against their defense. ( I can't believe I said that, but it feels good.)

    Their ability to run will determine who wins the game, Miami cannot hold a candle to lsu in the run game, this will be a struggle for is ex chucky
