    Its a five yard penalty. so technically you could argue that 1st and 15 is better than 2nd and 14. But in reality, imagine tossing the ball to Scarlett on a sweep and he notices that the defense is blowing up the play and its gonna be a sure loss of yards. Would you expect him to just instantly play QB and throw an illegal forward pass to avoid the loss? Of course not. Toney's wildcat play was a run, not a pass or RPO. Just my opinion but expecting him to throw the ball away there is a big stretch.

      SaltGator is the mystery man. Must not have liked the reference to Coon ass.

        The first neighbor my wife and I had when we were first married was a Cajun from Louisiana and he proudly referred to himself as a Coon @ss. I always thought it was a term of endearment :dunno: I'll tell you one thing about those guys, they know how to drink beer, eat good food, and have a good time!

            I've partied with LSU fans. They're a fun and hardy lot. They can dish it out and they can take it back.

                No I agree although I wouldn't compare Scarlett to Toney in that scenario given how they use Toney on RPOs.

                    I agree....but I will still call McElwain, "Butters".

                      Cover, this comes to you after a long day in the SUV headed home from Hogtown. And I enjoyed every mile of the nine hour drive. You really nailed it, as usual. I have to say that I am so glad I penciled this game a year ago to return. All I can say is the Swamp has not been that electric in a long time. My ears were ringing for hours.

                      I just have to give Mullen props. There are things that he does that will make you say WTH, but which coach have we ever had that didn't make you do that at times. It seems as if he knows every little thing that's going on. Even if it means jumping up in down to get the fans jacked up. And it worked.

                      Just a few points as I am dead tired and the adrenaline is wearing off.

                      D, was lights out.
                      Someone got in Chauncey's ear in the off season and told him to man up. Great performance.
                      My POTG, the entire OL. Few mistakes here and there but when a UF OL of late did not give up a sack, damn good job.

                      I see this team getting closer, playing harder, and loving their coach. That should bode very well for us.

                        Fantastic write up. As the team and coaches gave us their best effort to date, I think you did the same, so bravo to all. I don’t think you missed a thing. For a minute their I thought you were going to miss the significance of the swamp crowd that gave us a big advantage in that game, but you hit on that as well.

                        I posted last night how,borrowing from Saban, that it has been a long time since we had to worry about rat poison, but now with the guys playing almost great and getting some great wins, it’s inevitable that they are hearing about their greatness from everyone. Bad timing when the next game is against a perceived lesser foe before the match up with the big dogs who are currently king of the hill. And on top of that, an early start conference road game checks all the boxes for a potential trap game. This might require one of the better coaching efforts of the year.

                        Speaking of the coaches, no doubt they are earning our trust and serving up hungryman portions of crow to some of us.

                        Go Gators!

                          C2, always look forward to this. Awesome. Mullen and Co are earning their paychecks. I do have one question...and I wasn't paying attention until Danielson made a couple references to it. The WRs were NOT getting separation. It looked like Franks couldn't find an open receiver and it was him. But looking at several plays...it was the WRs not Franks. He was throwing balls that were high or in an area that only the WR could get if anyone. I was disappointed in the wr corp. People blame Franks but it's not always him. Thoughts?

                            You could start, with calling our coach by his name. I mean, what he has done so far demands a little respect, of which you give none by calling him that.

                              Perine shouldered the load. But, Scarlett making guys miss behind the line or in the hole was great to see.

                              Another good game plan by the coaching staff. They aren’t simply making halftime adjustments...they are adjusting to opponents’ adjustments. ( Both offensively and defensively).

                              Overall D effort relentless. (Didn’t see Slaton in at all.)

                                Well, the guy does own a "shi tter's full" sweater so I don't think he is particularly offended by the reference.

                                    I really think it's important to put things into perspective. That was an outstanding secondary for LSU. Fast, talented, well coached. Probably the best we'll see this year. I'm not faulting our receivers. It's their sixth game in this offense. The LSU secondary will all see play at the next level. Delpit and Greedy Williams are freaks.

                                      Marine1 must really hate Natz Moore for mocking Percy Harvinz, Corch Meyerz, and Corch Mullinz.... on the air even.

                                        "Lighten up Francis"

                                        He looks like "Cousin Eddie" from the "Vacation" movies and he has been known as Cousin Eddie since his stint on the staff years ago. So he will always be Cousin Eddie to me. It is not meant to be offensive so I am sorry it offends you. So I guess that you will call out all of us who use "Butters" or "Hee Haw" or "Old Yeller" or "Muscrat" or "Mustank" or "U. Creyer" or "U. Leyer" when referring to some of the former coaches. But please feel free to block my posts from your viewing pleasure if Cousin Eddie offends you.

                                              Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
