Maybe he’ll understand when he watches the replay.

Jordan Jefferson, I owe you an apology.  You weren’t detached last night.  You were delusional.

“I was seeing things clearly,” Jefferson said. “Making decisions with the ball wasn’t an issue.”

Jefferson turned the ball over twice, but it was his ill-advised flip-pass to an unsuspecting Spencer Ware that was devastating. Jefferson thought Ware was ready for the pass, but Ware had turned up field to block before Jefferson released the ball, which was intercepted.

“Other than that, I made great decisions with the ball,” Jefferson said.

Feel free to insert your reference to the old Mrs. Lincoln joke here.

    I guess it depends upon what his definition of “Great Decisions: is?

      Guess that’s explains those dropped charges after the bar fight also. Couldn’t be happening to a nicer guy.

      • Thank you Jason because I’ve always attributed the “effect” to Darwin and given that Darwin, though correct, seems to have negative connotations to many, so it helps to have a different label…again txs..Dunning-Kruger

      Looks like the Dunning-Kruger effect is in full swing on this blog.

    Aaron Murray and Tavares King understand what happened on that play.

    Honestly, I didn’t think Jefferson played great, but I won’t accuse him on not caring or being detached.

  3. Go Dawgs!

    Watched the game with Alabama fans last night. Even THEY were screaming at him to pull his head out of his ass when trying to run the option.

    /jog three steps to the left, nobody near me, pitch it five yards backwards to tailback, he gets planted for four yard loss
    //I’m doing a great job tonight.

      I said the same thing. Gotta make the first guy commit to you. Doing otherwise sends everybody to pitch. But it’s not like LSU hasn’t been running option with JJ all year. What in the world happened last night?

    there are things about Aaron Murray I don’t like but it’s comforting to know that Murray would A) never say shit like this because he B) understands he is the leader of our offense and will hold himself accountable instead of being a little bitch and trying to throw his teammates under the bus. Say what you want but you can always count on Murray to do whatever he can possibly do to win us the game and he doesn’t go looking for scapegoats if we lose.

    That is honestly the first game I ever watched a game where I seriously wondered if a player had a bet against his own team and was taking a dive. I am sure it was just his incompetence, the guy did only have 30 yards passing against UGA, but 2 fumbled snaps, 2 turnovers, and looking like he had never run the option before made we wonder. What the hell was going on with that staff during the game? Terrible excuse for a game, any game. Sad way to see CFB 2011 go out. Eight months and counting, long time to get that taste out of my mouth.

      Did you miss Columbia, SC in 2000?

      • Quincy Carter

        Huh? That wasn’t my fault! I made all the right decisions! No damn blocking, bad running game and the receivers kept running the wrong routes!!! Those 5 INTs should have been caught by OUR guys! Not my fault I tell you!!!!!

        • David Dunning

          The above response is representative of the Dunning-Kruger Effect in its most basic form. Note the complete state of denial and the apparent lack of intelligence sufficient to understand, as well as a total loss of grasp of reality. Am I right Kruger?

          • Justin Kruger

            Quite right, Old Boy. I would venture to say that, if not for the difference in ages, this Carter chap was the same person as this Jefferson fellow. Afflicted by the same limitations, nonetheless. Perhaps they are related?

    • Cojones

      I’m not alone in my “Why-is-this-player-not-all-out-to-win?” paranoia that hits at least once per game. Thanks, Mac. You are one less person to suspicion.

    Def can’t lay all the blame @ Jeff’s feet. He threw some good passes that were dropped by a bunch of scared receivers. If they weren’t killing drives with penalties, they were dropping catchable balls.

    That’s the first time I’ve seen the entire LSU team play tight in a long time under Miles. Defense was getting picked apart by McCarron. Bama receivers were snatching the ball away from them. Bama just wanted it more and was much better prepared for the fight. Kudos to them.

  7. Did anyone besides me think that the LUS d-backs were playing Martinez ball,i.e. looking at the receivers not the ball and had they been do that all year?

    Stoop.. I was there in 2000.

    Me thinks Jordan was kicked in the head while he was lying on the Nerf Turf last night.

    • The Lone Stranger

      Someone maybe should have kicked Miles in the head for sticking with Jefferson into the 4th quarter. It seemed apparent that JJ was not going to find his groove for whatever reason and the only glimmer of hope might come from an infusion of Lee.

    The truth is LSU, while a good team, was never the juggernaut that ESPN and the rest of the sports media claimed it to be. LSU was lucky to win the regular season match-up with Bama, only getting into overtime because the Bama kickers missed field goals and a bad call by the refs that a non-interception was an interception on the LSU one yard line. If the right call is made on that play and the field goals go through Bama wins the first game by double digits. For cryin’ out loud Georgia would have done the same thing to LSU that Bama did if there were any healthy running backs able to play. The LSU “monster” was a myth created and perpetuated by an out of control sports media bent on puffing a team and a game merely to sell more ads and increase viewership. Last year’s Auburn BCSNC team, Florida’s Tebow led 2008 BCSNC team and a host of other past BCSNC teams kick the sh!t out of this year’s LSU. What galls me is that the ESPN nattering nabobs had the audacity to say: “If LSU wins the BCS National Championship Game they will go down as one of the greatest teams in college football history.” That was a line written by some clown in the back room at ESPN and repeated endlessly for over a month by its minions (reading it off a teleprompter undoubtedly) as if it was each their own original thought. And we all thought the Big Lie died with Hitler in a bunker in Berlin 67 years ago.

    • Cojones

      Yea!! You backed up your lead-in sentence masterfully. Think we both agreed on that BEFORE this game. All hail to the true pundits! Piss on 4-letter pundits.
