LSU preps for newfangled Alabama offense under Kiffin

first_imgBATON ROUGE – As LSU continues to cling to its old fashioned but effective running game, Alabama has gone more modern with the addition of new offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, the former Tennessee, USC and Oakland Raiders head coach.“Lane Kiffin is a very tactical guy,” LSU coach Les Miles said. “He does a great job putting his offense in position to make plays. He’s a talented coach. We see advantages that have been explored by the play caller.”Kiffin, who will coach in Tiger Stadium for the first time when the No. 4 Crimson Tide (7-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) plays at No. 14 LSU (7-2, 3-2 SEC) at 7 p.m. Saturday on CBS, has been particularly adept throughout his career at getting the ball to his most talented players. Such is the case with junior wide receiver Amari Cooper, who leads the SEC and is No. 2 in the nation in both receiving yards with 1,132 on 71 catches for nine touchdowns and receiving yards per game with 141.5.Cooper, who is 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds, also is No. 1 in the SEC and No. 4 in the nation in receptions per game with nine. Cooper has already dwarfed his output in the 2013 regular season when he caught 45 passes for 736 yards and four touchdowns. He finished 12th in the SEC in receiving yards per game at 61.3 last year – 80 yards below his current pace.“Maybe the best wide receiver in the country,” Miles said.“Probably the best receiver we’ve faced this year,” said LSU cornerback Tre’Davious White, who will be on Cooper Saturday at least part of the time. “He’s the most complete and polished receiver that I’ve seen in a while. So, I can’t really just point out one thing about him. But he’s a very fast guy. So that’s probably the first thing that jumps out at you.”Kiffin has also already had a major impact on quarterback Blake Sims, a senior in his first season as a starter. Sims is No. 1 in the SEC and No. 3 nationally in passing efficiency at 172.7 with 131 completions in 200 attempts for 2,034 yards and 15 touchdowns with just three interceptions. Sims, who beat out much publicized Florida State junior transfer Jake Coker, is also the Tide’s No. 3 rusher as he has rushed 46 times for 250 yards and five touchdowns.“Sometimes you’ve got to be careful about how you play because the guy can take off running and make plays with his feet,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said. “Blake certainly has that ability. We’re a pro-style offense and not really a quarterback-run team, but we have been able to utilize his effectiveness as a runner in certain situations that have been very helpful to us.”LSU has not fared well this season against dual action quarterbacks like Sims. Auburn’s Nick Marshall threw for 207 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another 119 and two touchdowns in a 41-7 rout on Oct. 4. Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott passed for 268 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 105 and a touchdown in a 34-29 win on Sept. 20.“He’s really fast,” LSU middle linebacker Kendell Beckwith said of Sims. “We have to do a good job of containing him. Just not give him a chance to run the ball as much. He’s a pretty good runner, and he can pass the ball. When the linebackers are not in coverage, we’ve got to do a good job of not giving him a lane to run through.”Kiffin’s connectivity with Cooper and Sims have Alabama No. 2 in the SEC and No. 11 in the nation in total offense with 508.9 yards a game and No. 3 in the league and 24th in the nation in pass offense with 290 yards a game. Last season, the Tide finished sixth in the SEC in total offense with 454.1 yards a game and was seventh in pass offense with 248.5 yards a game.The Tide still can run, too, as it is averaging 218.6 yards a game, which is 13 more yards a game than it finished with last season. Junior tailback T.J. Yeldon has 618 yards on 120 carries and five touchdowns, while sophomore Derrick Henry has gained 530 yards on 103 rushes with four touchdowns.“It will be a big time challenge for us. We’re up for it,” White said.“Alabama’s not just going to come in here and try to run the ball all night,” Beckwith said. “Their offense can do a lot of things now.”last_img read more

The only problem I encountered is that even though I redid all the images the same exact way, there were several that still send you to photobucket when you click them. This happened to: 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 1980 and a few others I think….It’s driving me nuts, I don’t know why they all don’t stay the same.EDIT: never mind, those seem to be working now. 31 0 This sure seems like the right place.

Is there a way to fix the links to Photobucket so the graphics can be seen larger and in more detail, like some of the patches?When you click on a year and it opens up photobucket it should have an option to view the original larger size. I was fiddling around and found that if I change the way I link the images to the blog, when you click on them, they will open up immediately in the original large size without sending you to photobucket. The only downside to that method is that the images will appear smaller than they currently are on the blog page which, for the purpose of viewing multiple years at a glance seems like they are a good size. I rarely even use my own facebook page, so trying to figure out blogging and html etc has been a pretty interesting experience. If someone knows how I can change the images in the second option to appear on the page the size they are now, that would probably be better so you don’t have to open up photobucket just to view the larger files. I’ll keep fiddling…. 0 31 Link to post Link to post 38 Gehrig27 31 Members Sports Logos All Activity Share on other sites 17,857 posts 31 Share this post Members Gothamite Members Share on other sites Location:SPAMTOWN, MN Followers 0 0 31 Share this post 31 104 posts Joshawaggie 31 Link to post Members SportsLogos.Net Great work and outstanding quality.

Members Share on other sites 720 Members ThorSkaagi Yankees uniform database Hey guys, haven’t posted in a couple months because I’ve been busy with school/work and this project, so I hope this doesn’t get construed as a shameless plug.For the past year and a half I’ve been working on a database of every uniform/logo used by the New York Yankees. I first started out recreating the historic uniforms for fun, but it quickly snowballed into a full-fledged project when I was inspired by the work others like Jay Jackson and Gothamite have done. I used the baseball template from the main site because I felt it was the best template for me to use for something like this, so if that’s a problem in some way just let me know (I did give credit to the site on my blog).Anyway, I wasn’t sure if I should have posted this here or in my concepts thread, but I wanted to run it by the community before I try to get the word out anywhere else. I hope my database can be useful to others, take a look and let me know what you guys think, thanks.http://yankeesuniformdatabase.blogspot.com/ Share on other sites ThorSkaagi Location:CT Moderators Sign in to follow this   Followers 0 Go To Topic Listing Location:CT Medical Crab 0 Share on other sites Posted May 9, 2013 Gehrig27last_img read more
