My Last Prediction for the 2019-2020 Season

    Simple, really:
    Outrage over how calendar, timing, quiet meddling and behind-the-scenes manipulations of the subsequent postgame schedule and its resulting effect ONCE AGAIN ON (what’s left of) “Southern Culture” will be BIG news in narrow places like this—but will resonate down south: And there is MONEY down there, wrapped up in ALL of this!
    We AREN’T the “only ones who care”! Some hell will be raised—and coupled properly with that THERE IS “MONEY”, and MONEY can force some changes, mark my words.
    PEOPLE GET AS PISSED AS I think they are, THE RIGHT PEOPLE WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES DOWN THERE IN NEIGHBORHOODS, businesses, committees and coffee shops, and you might SEE AND HEAR some anger and real CHANGE snapping back AT YA next coupla seasons...AND I’M NOT SHITTIN’ YA!

    Any predictions on the Big Game? I'll give the sight edge to LSU. However, the local university hired the Clemson co-OC.

    I have nothing invested in this game, but my prediction is that Clemson wins a close one. The statistics favor LSU in everything but defense, and I am a firm believer in the old adage "defense wins championships". Clemson's defense is not just better, but better in "situational defense" situations. No team has completed a pass longer than 21 yards in the air against this Clemson defense, and no team had repeated success against this Clemson defense in the red zone. LSU's defense has come alive later in the season, but it yields big plays and can be beaten in the red zone.

    I think it's going to be a close game. Clemson does have experience in the big games/Championship Games including Trevor Lawrence. LSU has the home-field advantage in their home state (though it didn't work the last time for them).

    I suppose that with the overwhelming “heartwarming tale” that LSU is in mid-run, with these folks at this time, plus our natural affinity for the SEC team just about tips it to my rooting for a big LSU win to finish “THE STORY”...though how “big” it’d actually be is another discussion entirely: There are no guarantees when “emotion” is writing the tale! so yeah: HOPING for an LSU-win tonight...Like to see it happen, but no shock if “those OTHER Tigers “steal” this one!

    Well so much for that though the Gators, Bama, and UGA had good defenses as well and LSU crush them. Still think the Gators should have won. Reason why the game is played.

    Also note that Kyle Trask outgunned Joe Burrow in their head-to-head matchup. Trask is the only QB to outgun the 2019 Heisman winner this season.

    I wonder if Trask if he has a good year in 2020, would challenge Lawrence and/or Fields on being the first overall pick.

    Anything is possible. Joe Burrow was a 2-star athlete who sat on the bench at Ohio State before leaving his home state to transfer to LSU. His first year was average with a passer rating of 133.2, but the addition of Brady as QB coach at LSU and a massive overhaul of the offense sent his passer rating to 202.0.

    Kyle Trask was a 2-star athlete who sat on the bench at Florida until Feleipe Franks was injured. Dan Mullen did modify the offense around Kyle Trask by putting in more plays under center, more full-field reads, and some old Spurrier concepts in to a hybrid Gator Raid/ Utah-Florida spread-option (minus the running game). His passer rating of 156.1 is the highest a Florida QB has sustained with over 2,900 yards since Tim Tebow was on campus. Mullen has modified the Utah-Florida spread option for a couple QBs before at Mississippi State, so maybe he will consider again for 2020 and Trask could possibly build a case to be a top-5 QB/ top-64 draft pick. If Mullen sticks with more of the hybrid Utah-Florida spread-option with Emory Jones splitting plays, then Trask will likely be an undrafted free agent.
