I am reborn because LSU made 30 first down last night in LSU Tiger Stadium.

Thomas Williams

When was the last time you saw LSU play methodically?? Because I cannot remember that. Finally, LSU plays the way they were supposed to, by doing what they need to do to win the football game.

Just like in every other sport or business management means a lot to a successful bunch of people working hard and smart. I know that I was just in LSU heaven looking at this college football team play football in LSU Tiger Stadium, and all of the excited loud LSU Tiger Football Fans.

So to tell you the truth I like the entire LSU Coaching staff just the way they are.

Derrius Guice  and Darrel Williams three touchdowns each and LSU shut down the prolific Missouri offense to win its Homecoming game, 35-7, in Ed Orgeron's head coaching debut.
Guice had 163 yards on 17 carries including TD runs of 42, 4 and 37 yards for LSU (3-2, 2-1 in SEC play), which jumped to a 21-0 halftime lead. The LSU defense shut down the SEC's No. 1 passing game in it's first game since Les Miles was fired. Orgeron replaced him on an interim basis and the Tiger offense totaled 634 yards.

LSU rushed for 418 yards despite the absence of the SEC's leading rusher, Leonard Fournette, who missed the game with an ankle injury. Williams added 130 yards on 21 carries and scoring runs of 1, 2 and 9 yards. Danny Etling completed 19 of 30 passes for 216 yards.
Missouri came in averaging 391 yards passing per game and finished with 188. The SEC's leading passer Drew Lock was 17 of 37 for 167 yards.

WHAT WE LEARNED: LSU's offensive performance proved conclusively there was something terribly wrong under Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. LSU came in averaging 339 yards per game and finished with LSU mixed up its plays, executed them and set up the running game with short passes, using the entire field. There were many fewer long passes and jump balls. On the Tigers' third scoring drive of the first half, all the yardage, except for 15 on a penalty, came on the ground. Seven different receivers caught passes. The I-formation was used, but seldom. Defensively, LSU's quickness was a good match for the short, quick throws from the no-huddle spread used by Missouri. The offense's ability to stay on the field prevented LSU from getting gassed.

WHAT WENT RIGHT: Just about everything. Quarterback Danny Etling's ability to throw short, accurate passes and ad lib a few plays kept the chains moving. Derrius Guice left Missouri defenders dizzy with his array of quick cuts and dance-step moves. Darrel Williams proved to be more than a capable backup. The wide receivers got open and held onto the ball. LSU overcame more injuries to its offensive line which entered the game down one starter when Will Clapp left with a shoulder injury.

WHAT WENT WRONG: The first play was inauspicious as Cameron Gamble hit the opening kickoff out of bounds for the third time this season. Xavier Lewis was ejected in the first quarter for targeting on a block during a punt return and had a block int he back penalty on an earlier return. The offense went into a bit of a lull after scoring on the opening drive of the second half to make it 28-0, but finished with a fourth-quarter score on Williams second TD.
