LSU during Les Miles' watch has won a few games defying logic. Maybe Miles is taking that through a whole season.
LSU is 4-0 on the season and winning with superior special teams, especially in the return game, and a damn fine defense. Correct me if I'm wrong but a football team normally scores with its offense. LSU seems to want to blow that theory out the window.
Saturday night in Tiger Stadium LSU barely got by West Virginia 20-14 with only 12 first downs and only 230 yards of total offense. Steven Ridley was the only offense LSU had gaining 116 yards and scoring the Tigers only touchdown on offense.
"We can run the football well," LSU head coach Les Miles said. "We didn't throw it as well as we would have liked. Our quarterback play has got to get better. It's just that simple. Our guys know it. We are going to work on it. We'll start yet again on Monday."
For the third straight game LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson threw for less than a hundred yards and no touchdowns. Against the Mountaineers Jefferson threw two interceptions. Backup Jarrett Lee came in the game in the fourth quarter and didn't ignite a spark either.
"We needed a change right there," Miles, a.k.a The Hat said. "We put in Lee. Lee came in, he made a pass, and he did some things we wanted him to do, and then, we wanted to run the clock out, and we felt better with Jefferson running the clock out. That's why we put him back in."
LSU fans, that's got to make you feel good that Jefferson is much better at running out the clock.
Patrick Patterson was amazing running back a West Virginia punt 60 yards for what turned out to be a critical touchdown then striking a Heisman pose afterwards which lead to the raining of yellow hankies.
"I got too overboard," Peterson said of his Heisman pose. "I just have to calm it down next time."
