    I think two things caused most of that:

    1-We obviously didn’t prepare right for LSU. At all. Perhaps Sloan was expecting a run-heavy LSU plan, and prepared for that. The defense looked lost on all levels. Looked like they didn’t know what to expect, or maybe didn’t have coverage schemes for a lot of stuff.

    2-Pace- LSU came out and played fast as hell. Right off the bat. We clearly got shell-shocked from that and never recovered.

    We do have plenty of film on Maine. We should be able to prepare well. I think our defense will be back to the awesome product we saw all last season.

    Offense depends a lot on Shai. If he is back to normal, I think we absolutely run train on these guys. Shai should be worth at least two personal TDs against an opponent like Maine.

    If he ain’t up to snuff, maybe the coaches keep him out and we use Tomlin. I really liked what I saw. Tomlin May never have the scramble ability of Shai, but he will be a really great QB for us.

    I say if defense does what we saw last season, we will see us runaway with it. If they lose momentum or show up unprepared, we could actually lose this game (a thought I would never have imagined a couple weeks ago.)

    Maine will try out our CBs. They will fail at that. We will shut that part down big time. I would say throws to our CBs will result in at least 2 picks.

    Offense with Shai and King, we win by at least 2 TDs. Without, we still win-as long as defense comes correct.

    I think we win. I won’t allow for other eventualities.
    If our defense struggles against Maine, Iíll start to panic. But Iím not going to get upset with them getting torched by the #6 team in the country when they had no film to study.

    We need a big win here to restore confidence in the players, much like WMU in 2015.

    Tough matchup for us. They are very good against the run and returned their entire DL from a top team last year plus they have an excellent QB with top passing game which appears to be a weakness for us based on game 1. I’m very concerned about this game. They beat WKU last year on the road and have a ton of confidence coming into our game. It will take our best game to beat this team. Hope I’m wrong but my confidence level is way down compared to 2 weeks ago. I know LSU is very good but we looked like an NAIA team against them. Never came close to slowing them down. Six straight TD’s virtually unchallenged. They emptied the bench in second half to keep the score out of the 70’s. Much worse than Auburn 2017. Hope I’m wrong.

    Per Massey:

    Most Likely: 31-17
    Median: 34-17
    Mean: 34-19

    Win probability: 82%

    FWIW, they also predict a rematch with LSU would end 41-14.

    Sounds about right.....

    As long as our guys come out and go for the throat.

    Need to not fool around. Gain the momentum, own it for the whole game!

    (I REALLY hope DeBeese doesn’t waste the first series on the dive. Again! That’s a real good way to lose momentum. I don’t think it has ever worked.)

    Need everyone to show up! Power of Paulson is especially important for a game like this!
