It Appears…We’re Out… Of Honey

Run. Run. Pass. Punt. Repeat ad nauseum. This offensive scheme is coming to a television near you. In prime time, NO Les (sic).

Tonight, LSU lost it’s first regular season game since 201o. It’s nearly inconceivable that we played in the BCS National Championship Game last year using the same offensive scheme.

Our defense has been the game changer and now it appears we are out of honey.

Winnie the Pooh

Our coach has his head stuck up his butt in a jar of honey. I understand the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” philosophy. We were 10-0 last year, while playing the toughest schedule in the nation.  Doesn’t sound broke.

It looked broke. We won ugly, but we won. The grind it out style of gridiron ball worked for many seasons, but the sweet golden run appears to be down to the nubbins.

Hopefully, the dearth of points scored in these last 2 games will cause the offensive coaches to find a playbook (may I suggest calling Dan Swanstrom, OC @ Johns Hopkins), dust it off, and implement something other than the run, bubble screen, and occasional jump pass into the end zone.

But, they probably won’t.

In the end, it’s only a game. When these guys are finished bashing their helmets and breaking their bones, they can look forward to enterprising careers in the auto-rental business. Or food service, or whatever jobs college graduates can find these days.

Not that I’m about to open THAT can of political worms– the economy. I’d rather discuss “irregularity” and fiber.  Although either topic provides the same results.
