    I also remember when 3 and out was the go-to game plan for those two yahoos.

      Chump did that yesterday and it should've cost him the game. When USC got the ball with maybe 5ish minutes left and a 7 point lead at around the 30 or so, they ran some nice play calls and were moving down the field and could've iced the game with a FG, instead once they crossed midfield, Chump figured the offense did it's job by flipping the field and ran the ball into the middle of the line 3 straight times and punted....putting UGA at the 4.

      of course UGA goes right down the field and tied the game.....but classic Chump seeming to deliberately put his defense in the game securing situation instead of trying to win the game with his offense when he had the chance.

      he did that crap while with us all the time.....very frustrating

          Our O-line and D-line really is the story. Say what you want about Mullen's playcalling but after 50 plus minutes of game time and the other team figures out you can't run the ball, you start getting predictable. Those playcalls at the end just seem to me that Mullen is trying to manufacture some offense by being as unpredictable as possible. Why? Because he has zero confidence that we can run the ball and gain a yard or two. And yet we put up 450 yards of offense and only turned the ball over once. On defense, you can't moan all year long about our lack of talent at critical positions, and then lose the 2 best dudes we actually have on defense, and then blame the crappy defensive performance on the scheme.

              And my only gripe about the refs would be the timing of their calls and no calls. They missed a lot on both ends including Jones TD pass but they call holding on stone that changed the game, and then nothing on the Cleveland play. The still frame doesn't even do it justice as Cleveland was literally dragging the db

                While that’s definitely a hold, Trask wasn’t even looking at him. In fact, just further proves that Trask was hell bent on scoring instead making the smart play. He throws to to Cleveland, it’s a first down, maybe touchdown, or a penalty. He was just locked onto his WR and LSU knew it.

                      Thanks C2. LSU is just better than us. I feel Mullen definitely struggled at times playcalling in certain down and distances. Disappointing loss. Trask played damn well but we had to play a perfect game and that's real hard to do. Ensminger abused Grantham all game. I refuse to blame injuries. Get better depth then. Recruit better. This is big time football. If you are ONE deep at any position that's on the coaches.

                        Since I can count Trask's number of starts in his lifetime on one hand, he is going to make some mistakes due to inexperience. There were a couple of those plays last night, but overall, he performed admirably in one of the toughest places to play in all of football. A running game is needed to help a QB out, but the O-line was getting pushed back even when double teaming guys. I think that affected the playcalling for good and for bad. In some ways, Mullen knows that the run game is struggling, so he's passing more, but he's still committed to making the run game work because that's what he knows. Hopefully this loss we'll get some of the stubbornness out of him.

                          Thinking back to last year, can you imagine this team with Trask as QB in 2018? We actually had a running game. Last season likely turns out better and we might’ve been set up better this year.

                              Not prior to Mizzou. And who knows - maybe he’s not practicing that play if he’s the full time starter.

                                Game came down to one play.
                                Down 35-28 with 7:30 minutes left, Trask throws an interception in the endzone. Any momentum we had was lost.
                                LSU scores in less than two minutes on 4 plays and game over.
                                Even so I doubt we win. We couldn't stop LSU. At best we trade scores and end up in OT.

                                Looking at our drives:
                                1) Punt: Three plays two incomplete passes.
                                2) Touchdown: Five yard pass, after runs for 4 &17 yards by Perine and 12 & 3 by EJ
                                3) Punt: Four plays; 23yard pass, incomplete pass, 1 yard run, 8 yard scramble
                                4) Touchdown: EJ circus pass, Perine ran for 10, EJ for 8 & 4, Trask for 12
                                5) Touchdown: Six yard pass, Davis ran for 4, Perine for 4, EJ for 5, Trask for 3
                                Halftime
                                6) Touchdown: Two yard pass, Perine ran for 5, Hammond for 11, Perine for 5 and 4
                                7) Punt: Three plays, sack, delay of game
                                8) Punt: EJ 2 yards, 1 yard, incomplete pass
                                9) Interception: Not the pass Trask should have thrown.
                                LSU scores 4 plays later, 42-28 with 5:43 left in the game.
                                10) Meaningless drive

                                Looking at the drives I was surprised to see that we had some success on the ground. (obviously though that's not all the running plays).
                                After drive 6, LSU scores and then pinned their ears back for a 3&out on drive 7. EJ went in drive 8 for a change of pace and although he had had some success he got stuffed. I don't have a problem with EJ coming in on that drive.

                                  And on that one play you're pointing out here, Cleveland was held so badly his pants nearly got pulled down as the defender fell to the ground hanging on for dear life and the ref just ignored it. Should've been an automatic 1st down and the INT shouldn't have counted.

                                    Thanks again cover2. Unlike the past Ten years the Gators were in it till the end. We just could not stop their drives. If we covered their receivers then their QB just scampered for a 1st down.
