Geaux Tigers, What a Year It Has Been For LSU

        What a year for LSU Football! 

I love the Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer story of imperfection.

Rudolph's imperfection turns out to be just perfect. 

Santa winds up stopping at the Island of Misfit Toys to deliver to the kids by Santa.

No one wanted these "imperfect" toys. 

 

LSU Football, in some ways, might be considered that.

Oh, the gnashing of teeth, popping antacids all summer: Do we have a quarterback, do we have a running back, are our receivers good enough, is the offensive line good enough, is the defense good enough.

On and on, the talk radio shows dissected the projections for the 2019 season. 

And then, the improbable happened.

 

 

Joe Burrow, who never got to start at Ohio State had graduated in 2018 and made his way to the Bayou at the last minute, for a chance to play quarterback.

2018 Joe spent adjusting and by the 2019 January bowl, LSU beat UCF who claimed they should be #1. Yeah right.

Joe Burrow worked all summer 2019 with his receivers who caught thousands of footballs. Perfecting routes and timing in the hot and humid sauna of Baton Rouge with his receivers.

Thaddeus Moss (son of NFL great Randy Moss) recovered from foot surgery. Will he play again?

Coach O and the new AD Scott Woodward get Joe Brady, a young offensive genius from the New Orleans Saints. 

The "gumbo" was cooking all summer and we didn't even know it!

 

 

With the first offensive series LSU Tigers played , WE KNEW!

LAWD HAVE MERCY, we moved out of the offensive stone age and into the 21st century!

The O-line was blocking!

Burrow was slinging the ball over the field!

The receivers were catching everything thrown their way!

An unknown running back, Clyde Edwards-Helaire was busting runs and moves no one had ever seen!

Here we are, at the end of the season with a 12-0 record.

 SEC Championship and on to the College Playoffs.

Oh and by the way, the National Championship Game is played 60 miles east in New Orleans. 

These young men have a chip on their shoulder. They weren't good enough, weren't fast enough, weren't big enough to play SEC ball.

Yeah right. 

You can't teach work ethic, I always say.

These coaches, these players, this Athletic Director worked their rear ends off and this is the result.

No fluke, no luck, just hard work.

I really hope Joe Burreaux wins that Heisman, but he will tell you his goal is to win the National Championship as it is a TEAM GOAL and TEAM WIN.

Many people live their entire lives and don't understand this, but sports teaches you that. 

It has been a story for the ages to watch this team and their bond of "imperfections" and run the table for a "PERFECT" season.

 

Geaux Tigers!

This is a very unique group of young men, with a bunch of "misfits" and "imperfect" players. They bonded together with a passionate Cajun coach orchestrating this unbelievable season.
