With LSU leading 23-9 in the fourth quarter and dominating ...
And then, THE VERY NEXT POSSESSION ...
And finally, after driving down the field to re-take their hard-earned lead with a field goal AND THEN HOLDING AUBURN'S OFFENSE TO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ...
To quote my father ... "Undamnbelievable."
For the record, poor Jamie Howard threw five interceptions in that fourth quarter, counting two he threw on the final drive (Brian Robinson fumbled the first one). And that's not even counting the fumble Auburn recovered for its first touchdown. Like I said, I can't imagine what my life would've been like if I had been an LSU fan that day -- that game might have turned me against football forever.
Anyway, some more current links, most of them from al.com.
- Druid's back in the saddle, checking in with a truly bizarre video that may have been produced by one of those introverted film-school students.
- 'Bama football links, via al.com: Rapaport tells us about some guys trying out new positions in practice; Estes reminds that 'Bama's linebacker deficiency may not be as serious as we think; Rapaport (again) discusses the remaining members of Alabama's secondary, playing without the slightly overrated Simeon Castille.
- The Wiz has more on the bizarre saga of Ryan Perriloux, which has reached a truly bizarre level (as evidenced by this thread of LSU fans arguing over what to do with him). The Big Lead has even joined the fray, wondering what LSU is waiting for. Obviously, I'm not an LSU fan (thank God) so I can't say how I'd feel if I were. But the kid doesn't seem to be getting it (shades of Juwan Simpson asking for an ice cream cone) and the longer he hangs around, he may wind up doing more harm than good. So LSU may be best off to cut its ties and move on.
