LSU Tigers making Auburn look like cubs

The first half could not have gone too much worse for Auburn. The visiting Tigers lost a wide receiver to an injury, had a punt nearly fumbled away by the punter and LSU has dominated en route to a 21-0 halftime lead. LSU running back Jeremy Hill has rushed for a career high 153 rushing yards and two touchdowns. It has helped that LSU has a significant advantage in the trenches going in their favor right now.

While the LSU o-line has been opening up highway-sized lanes for Hill, the defensive line has been consistent in bringing pressure ton Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall and slowing down any momentum in the running game. Perhaps surprisingly, LSU has yet to sack Marshall, while Auburn has recorded two sacks of Zach Mettenberger. Auburn is just 1-for-8 on third down conversions as well.

In the first quarter, Auburn wide receiver Jaylon Denson slipped and fell to the soggy field. He would not get up until trainers attended to him, wrapped his leg in an inflatable brace and lifted him to a cart to be removed from the field.

LSU is looking very solid and if they can continue to pound Auburn the way they did in the first half, these Tigers should start to get even more people talking about them as a legitimate threat to Alabama’s SEC and BCS throne.

    I felt this would be a 21 point differential for LSU. It the game ended now, it would be, but it’s only half done. Anything can happen, but so far, I am most pleased with our defense. I expected something from our offense, but not quite the ease of the TDs for Hill. He broke several tackles each time.

    It is raining off and on, mostly on.

    There are definitely some things I saw that need improving, such as RB holding on to the ball, receivers getting to their spots more quickly, OL to block better, Met to get rid of the ball more quickly and a few other things.

    Both Coaches Cameron and Chavis are earning their money tonight and Miles is keeping it real, so it is a good job overall 1/2 way through.

    May all stay safe and avoid injury!

    Allons les Tigres! Geaux Tigers!

    Am I the only one who hates the Schu Report guy?

    What’s a Schu Report?

    All of a sudden, Cam pulls the TE out in the middle and Met hits his big target, only after a bogus holding call. Refs don’t call that consistently at all. Usually they don’t call holding when the block is to the inside and this one was. LSU managed to score anyway, but that was tough series of downs.

    LSU seems to be able to run and to pass. Defense is doing better than I expected.

    lsuzilla: You’re not the only one. I don’t like that either.

    Geaux LSU!

    I’m so torn! Romulus, the Auburn fan, always roots for the Tide!! I just feel guilty pulling for LSU. Oh, Romulus, darlin’, can you fogive me?

    I’m for the AU Tigers myself. Oh well…..

    @be4bama …

    When Wazzu played Auburn on opening night, I made an innocent joke about liking the pirate (Mike Leach). “Romulus” went ballistic on me about my disloyalty to the SEC. Yeah … because we know Auburn fans always root for Bama lol I’m just having a little fun. In reality, I have no dog in this hunt, but respect LSU and think they’re the far superior team in this matchup.

    Deb, I try not to let these fellas get to me, they act very immature at times. And I should confess that I’m a closet AU fan. With exception of Iron Bowl week, of course. Many years ago I hated AU, but with age comes maturity. Well, for some of us it did.
    PS LSU is the better Tiger tonight.

    @be4bama …

    Oh dear … no, not a closet Auburn fan. I just try to be gracious. Don’t usually let the boys get to me. But I’m afraid sometimes I get to them 😀

    Yep, I even own an AU 2010 SEC Champions tee shirt. It was a gift from an AUSOME AU friend. I wore it while watching them beat the ducks.

    There are some referee calls in this game that don’t make sense to me. I guess someone will make an issue of it if it is important, but it just seems strange officiating.

    LSU is doing well. I don’t think it will be a 2 point game this time.

    I just wanna say that I haven’t reblogged this anywhere, nor do I know what reblogging means.
