    Nationwide rank regarding the slant route:

    Bama is #1 offensively
    LSU is #113 defensively

    That's problematic.

    Our LB play in pass coverage is going to be very critical in the game. These passes are quick and relatively short and LBs need to get into those passing lanes and intercept one or two of them or at the very least make it difficult to complete those passes.

    O addressed this, said they won't be able to stop it but have to contain it to 3 to 5 yds

    Well 13 to 15 yards.

    Better than 63 to 65 yards, let me tell you.

    There are gonna be huge passing plays that we are gonna have to stomach as LSU fans watching this game. The key will be holding them to just enough FGs.

    The dbs have to catch the ints that come their way because I believe tua will give us a couple opportunities... He throws some nice passes but he also throws some bad ones that work out because his receivers are that much better than the DB...

    That open field tackling that's been sporadic. I'll watch with an eye closed.

    Judy makes Tua’s numbers look better than he really is for the exact reason stated. 3 yard catches turn into 65 yard td’s. If Tua has to go over the top of defenders his passes are not nearly as effective.
