Stats lifted from the following: https://247sports.com/college/lsu/Article/The-game-notes-from-LSUs-win-Ole-Miss-2017-109288128/Amp GOOD > Guice is back - first player in SEC history with three games >250 yards. He had 276 tonight and has 2534 career yards - 7th in LSU history. He’s had 3-200+ yards, 3rd in LSU history. He’s had 10-100+ yards games, 6th in LSU history. > Guice and Williams is a hell of a combo. Williams is the first player in LSU history to gain 100+ yards rushing and 100+ yards receiving in a game (105/103). Hell, Etling even had some nice runs, including a TD. > Speaking of Etling, he battled like a mf - he’s a great tiger, limitations be damned; 376 yards from breaking top 10 passing in LSU history. > Nice to send Ole Miss back to hell where they belong. A nice rivalry win (the Magnolia Bowl trophy is an ugly thing, even worse than the boot). Vaught-Hemingway was over capacity. All time record since 1894 - 61-41-4. > Total yards: 593-347; TOP: 37:40-22:20 > Canada was pretty unpredictable; nice to see TEs factor in the win. Etling is still limited so this was quite a nice orchestration by Canada. Hope the Canada/Aranda duo are back next year; whenever they leave there’ll be big shoes to fill. > Three interceptions and three sacks; of the latter Key had two. Add to that six tackles and a forced fumble. It seems likely both Key and Guice are leaving, hope they play themselves into the first round (both look close to their old selves). Key is now 4th in career sacks and 8th in career forced fumbles. > True freshman Delpit had 9 tackles, 1 interception, and was generally a bad-ass. > RS freshman Culp went 4-4 in FG and was money all night, which is quite an about face; still want a ST coach, kickoff coverage was ass; punting was meh, serviceable I guess BAD > Starters played till the end. Brennan might have benefitted from snaps and Guice was done and should have been sat. Every time he ran late I cringed, and when he tapped out and went to the trainers I especially cringed. > Syracuse lost; a win against Richt’s U would have been a cherry on top of the OM victory. They did give em a good game, though. > A win against OM won’t amount to much in the eyes of college football at large. It was a huge win for us, but more psychological than solid; I’d be surprised to see us jump much in the polls. Not sure a win against Bama would throw us back in competition for the NC, though it wouldn’t be a bad start. More likely Bama would unfairly plummet and the SEC’s NC hopes be shaken. The Troy loss was probably the sacrifice the football gods needed; interested to see if a) O can lead our damn strong team to battle against Bama and b) Eaux can stoke the media in our favor like Miles’ “Undefeated in regulation.” We might just be the best team in the nation - I think we give Bama way more than they want. UGLY > OM gained 153 yards rushing and made hay on our D late. Didn’t love that. > How come OM, staring down sanctions (though UNC might have completed the castration of the NCAA) has a backup QB who looks pretty damn good? I sure hope Brennan is everything he’s cracked up to be.
